Highlights: Relive the Raiders comeback win over the Packers

Much like the field it played on, the Green Bay Packers came up just short in its 22-21 loss to the Oakland Raiders Thursday night in Winnipeg. The Raiders scored a touchdown and a pair of field goals in the second half, with the game-winning kick occurring with just under three minutes in the game.

End zones were marked by bright orange pylons at the 10-yard lines and there were no kickoffs. Concerns arose today surrounding the area where the (Winnipeg) Blue Bombers' goal posts were previously located. It was where the old CFL goal posts would have been.

Packers coach Matt LaFleur made a decision to sit 33 players, including star quarterback Aaron Rodgers and running back Aaron Jones. Unlike NFL fields, their goal posts are actually in the field of play. "They debated not playing, they debated cleaning up one end and having both teams go the same direction, but they settled on shortening the field from 100 yards to 80." .

It was the first National Football League game in Canada since the Buffalo Bills faced the Atlanta Falcons in December 2013 to finish a run of eight games in Toronto. "It wasn't really a 'hole", it was covered with turf. "This puts food on the table for them, so you don't want to mess around with injuries".
