Packers move to 13-0 with 46-16 win over Raiders

GREEN BAY, Wis. (AP) — Charles Woodson hasn’t played for the Oakland Raiders since 2005, so it wasn’t a particularly big deal for him to get an interception against his old team.

Woodson and the rest of the Green Bay Packers have much bigger things on their minds these days.

Green Bay is 13-0 and earned a first-round bye in the playoffs after Sunday’s 46-16 rout of the Raiders. The next steps are securing home-field advantage in the postseason and, perhaps, pulling off a perfect season.

Woodson hasn’t shied away from talk of a 16-0 season in recent weeks, but said after Sunday’s game that he’s more worried about the Packers playing their best by the time the playoffs begin.

“We’ve won a lot of games, but there’s a lot of football left to be played,” he said. “The only thing that we’ve assured ourselves is we have a chance going into the playoffs and then that’s when the real fun starts. We’re just going to continue to stay focused here on out for the rest of the regular season and just try to continue to roll with Ws and go into those playoffs on fire.”

Now the Packers have to hope star receiver Greg Jennings will be there with them. Jennings sustained an apparent left knee injury in the third quarter and had to be carted from the sideline to the locker room. Quarterback Aaron Rodgers said after the game that it “didn’t look very good.”
