Raiders waiting for 1st-team offense to click

ALAMEDA, Calif. (AP) - The Oakland Raiders might need to wait until the start of the regular season for the passing game to hit its stride.

Quarterback Matt Schaub and the first-team offense struggled once again in the final full dress rehearsal for the season, struggling to move the ball with any consistency in a 31-21 exhibition loss to Green Bay on Friday night.

Coach Dennis Allen said Saturday that he does not know how much his starters will play in Thursday's exhibition finale against Seattle, but typically the first team gets little more than a cameo in the fourth preseason game.

Allen says he is confident the problems can be fixed before the season opener at the New York Jets on Sept. 7.
