Well it certainly seems as if the Green Bay Packers’ offense is in midseason form here already in Week 3 of the preseason against the Oakland Raiders. All facets of the offense are clicking on all cylinders, and Aaron Rodgers and Jordy Nelson provided the validation in the passing department.
Already up 8-7 in the game against Oakland following an Eddie Lacy touchdown run from a few yards out, Rodgers then turned things up in the passing game.
Just after the second quarter got underway, watch in the GIF provided below as Rodgers hits his top target with the quick pass, and he then proceeds to shake the tackle and take it right to the house to add to the Pack’s lead.

As was stated earlier, just like it’s about the 8th game of the year for this team already.
So far in this one, the final preseason game in which all of the starters will be active, the Packers look like a team that is poised to make a serious run at the Super Bowl title. They were able to come away with the NFC North last year, but their playoff run was not one to be remembered.
They keep this up, then things will be different this season.
