Packers v. 49ers Preseason 2022: Game time, how to watch on TV/online, & more details

Get ready for the Packers’ preseason opener by planning out how you’ll watch.

NFL: Green Bay Packers at San Francisco 49ers Darren Yamashita-USA TODAY Sports

Preseason football is finally here. The Green Bay Packers open up their exhibition schedule this evening after a long seven months since their last game, the Divisional Playoff loss to the San Francisco 49ers. Today’s game comes against those same 49ers, though few players who were prominently featured in that game are likely to play tonight.

Instead, Jordan Love and Trey Lance will start at quarterback for the two teams, with Aaron Rodgers sitting and Jimmy Garoppolo now behind Lance on the depth chart. Rodgers is hardly the only veteran sitting for the Packers, however, as the team is expected to have numerous key players inactive for the game. Matt LaFleur and his coaching staff will focus on evaluating the team’s backups and younger players instead while preserving the key starters’ health.

Tonight’s game will be aired nationally on NFL Network, at least in part — it will be joined in progress following the conclusion of an earlier game also being shown on that network. However, there is an option for live-streaming the game online as well. Check that out below and get ready for tonight’s game!
