2-2-1 is not where the Green Bay Packers hoped to be after five weeks of the 2018 NFL season. Given the early schedule, most Packers fans were hoping that this evening’s game against the San Francisco 49ers would be an opportunity to see the Green and Gold start 5-1 or 6-0. Instead, 3-2-1 is the best the team can do before their off week, after which the Packers will have their toughest set of games of the year with road dates at the Rams and Patriots.
Tonight’s game will feature a pair of teams with lots of players injured or playing through injuries, as the two squads combined for 17 players on the final injury reports this week. Green Bay had eight players questionable, while the 49ers ruled one player out, have one doubtful, and seven questionable.
Join us for the first half of tonight’s game here, as we follow along with the contest. And just in case you need a refresher on how to tune in for Monday Night Football, we have our Game Primer here and ready to go for you.
Also, just be warned that we may have a bit of a mashup in the APC Staff tweets today. After all, the Milwaukee Brewers are in the National League Championship Series, with game three starting at 6:39 Central Time. We’re going to have a bit of “you got your chocolate in my peanut butter” in the Twitter feed today, so consider this a heads-up.
