This could be the quintessential trap game for the Packers, who are seeking perfection at 12-0. They have an embarrassed Raiders team going to their place, where they will be prohibited favorites.
But it just so happens that this Raiders team happens to match up with the Packers well in certain areas. This is much like the not-so-great '85 Dolphins beating the big, bad, undefeated '85 Chicago Bears by having certain characteristics that gave them problems.
Remember, the Packers struggled with the New York Giants last week with Eli Manning and the air attack. Manning leads the league in pass plays that result in 40 yards or more with 13.
The Raiders, especially with a healthy Moore or Ford (at least one of them), should be able to do the same thing. Palmer, in less than half the starts of Manning, is tied for 10th with seven completions going over 40 yards.
While the big play ability is there for the Raiders, they don't give up big plays as easily as the Giants do. This is not a prediction of any sort, it's just a list of reasons to believe the Raiders could pull off the colossal upset.
Their season could very well depend on it.
