Friday, August 23rd, 2019

In keeping his starters in street clothes for Thursday's preseason game in Winnipeg, Green Bay Packers coach Matt LaFleur decided to follow his instincts. ''It was just something in my gut,'' LaFleur said on Friday, a day after a 22-21 loss to the Oakland Raiders.

The NFL's effort to take its game internationally has worked in London, but other sites have proved a bigger challenge. The Seahawks and Patriots cancelled a preseason game in Beijing in 2007, and the Rams-Chiefs regular-season game was moved from Mexico City back to L.A. last November because of poor playing conditions.

Daniel Carlson kicked a 33-yard field goal with 8 seconds remaining, and the Oakland Raiders earned a bizarre 22-21 preseason victory over the Green Bay Packers on a field shortened to 80 yards for player safety.

Jon Gruden: Winnipeg field was fine, ask Green Bay what the problem was

Friday, August 23rd, 2019

Raiders coach Jon Gruden did not agree with the decision to play Thursday night's game against the Packers on a makeshift 80-yard field after the NFL's attempt to convert a larger Canadian Football League field into a regulation American field hit a snag.

Gruden made clear that it was the Packers, not the Raiders, who insisted on changing the field dimensions.
