We're almost there. Just a few short hours separate us from the start of the Green Bay Packers' 2015 season. While the NFL got underway on Thursday evening with the Steelers-Patriots game, the rest of the league has to wait through these two long days without NFL football before we get our first full Sunday of the fall.
The Packers open up with their rivals to the south, as the oldest and most-played series in NFL history renews for the 191st time (including playoffs). With the Packers just two games behind the Bears all-time, Green Bay fans might finally be able to put a losing record to their neighbors behind them later this season if the Packers can emerge victorious in both contests this year.
Here's what you'll need to get ready for this Sunday's game.
(Packers defensive linemen Datone Jones and Letroy Guion are suspended.)
