Winnipeg Sun reporter Paul Friesen joined The Jason Smith Show to talk about the NFL's humiliating PR disaster Thursday night in Winnipeg, Canada, as concerns over the playing surface forced the game's organizers to make the Oakland Raiders and Green Bay Packers play on an 80-yard field. Pylons were placed at each end of both 10-yard lines, marking the front of the end zone, and at each end of both normal goal lines (for the back of the end zone). Unlike NFL fields, their goal posts are actually in the field of play. "We certainly have all played on much worse surfaces in our life, but it was just one of those deals where they weren't playing their starters and so we just chose to sit them".
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. "But it's something you don't really want to play around with, especially guys who, this is their living".
"The field, I don't know that was all about", Gruden said. "We thought the field was perfectly fine", Gruden told reporters in his post-game media conference. We like the field. Tim Boyle started at quarterback for Green Bay. Two of those scores came from 20-plus yard passes to Trevor Davis and Jake Kumerow respectively. The Raiders won what was a reasonably entertaining game, erasing a 21-10 halftime lead by the Packers - kicking the winning field goal with eight seconds left in the fourth quarter. His 2-point conversion attempt was intercepted.
The Packers will wrap up the exhibition schedule at home next Thursday against the Kansas City Chiefs.
