Moving on to the NFL, the Las Vegas Raiders snapped their three-game losing streak with a 17-13 victory over the Green Bay Packers. The Raiders’ defense came up big with multiple interceptions, including one in the end zone to seal the win. It was a hard-fought game for both teams, but the Raiders managed to come out on top.
