Join APC as we follow along with the first half of the final 2017 preseason contest.

This evening, the Green Bay Packers take the field for the final time during the 2017 preseason. Facing them are the Los Angeles Rams, who enter this year off a 4-12 season in 2016.

Neither team should play their starters much, if at all tonight, so the entire game should be devoted to player evaluation on both sides. The Packers have a handful of roster spots still up for grabs, and we broke down several of those positions in a preview this afternoon.

Stay tuned to see if new Packer edge rusher Ahmad Brooks plays - this may be fans’ first opportunity to see him in Green and Gold. If not, it will be another week until he dons the uniform for next week’s regular season opener against the Seahawks.

All teams must reach a 53-man active roster by 4:00 PM Eastern on Saturday, meaning the Packers, who have 88 players currently, will have to make 35 cuts before then.

Please join us in the comments below, and enjoy the game!
