Today, the Green Bay Packers open up their 2016 regular season schedule with a date in Jacksonville against the Jaguars of the AFC South. Green Bay enters on the heels of a 10-6 season which saw them advance to the Divisional Round of the NFC Playoffs, while the Jaguars finished last year at 5-11.

Each team used its first-round pick to bolster its defense; Jacksonville took cornerback Jalen Ramsey from Florida State with the fifth pick, while the Packers picked UCLA defensive tackle Kenny Clark at #27 overall. Meanwhile, Jordy Nelson returns to the playing field for the Packers after missing all of last season.
