GREEN BAY, Wis. (AP) — Aaron Rodgers threw for two touchdowns and Eddie Lacy ran for a first-quarter score in the Green Bay Packers' 31-21 preseason victory Friday night over the Oakland Raiders.

The game was stopped for several minutes in the second quarter after Raiders linebacker Sio Moore was taken off the field with a neck injury. He gave a thumb-up sign as he was wheeled off to a standing ovation. Moore was taken to a hospital.

The Packers' Julius Peppers recorded his first sack of the preseason, and the Raiders' offense struggled with new quarterback Matt Schaub. He did lead the Raiders into the red zone in the third quarter against backups, but a touchdown pass to former Packers receiver James Jones was overturned on review.

Schaub was 13 of 27 for 110 yards. Rodgers was 9 of 20 for 139 yards playing into the second quarter.
