This weekend, Green Bay Packers fans should get their best and longest look at Aaron Rodgers and the team’s starting lineup all preseason. It’s week three of the exhibition slate, which means that teams all across the NFL will likely use this game as a tuneup for their top units.
The Packers did give Rodgers, Jordy Nelson, and company a full series last week, and it was a successful one at that. Rodgers helped lead a 15-play touchdown drive, capping it off with a three-yard touchdown to Martellus Bennett. On Saturday, we hope to see more of the same against a stout defense in what should be a good test for Green Bay’s starters.
In addition, this week’s game is a perfect time to take advantage of the seven-day free trial for NFL Game Pass, as the Packers’ final preseason game is scheduled to be broadcast on national television.
Without further ado, here is your Game Primer for this weekend’s game.
