Tonight, the Green Bay Packers return to the field, fresh off an extended bye week, with an NFC North matchup against the Detroit Lions awaiting. The Packers’ only Monday Night Football game of the year will feature Brett Hundley in his second start and with that extra eight days of preparation since his first game in the starting lineup.
The Packers are apparently planning to tailor the playbook better to Hundley, however, stripping out some plays that were designed for starting QB Aaron Rodgers:

What exactly does that mean? It is a vague comment after all. We’ll see tonight whether that means that there will be more simple reads, play action, and empty sets (like the great drive against the Saints) or if it is more of the same from the remainder of that game, which was less than impressive.

Go Pack Go!
