In one of the four late games on Sunday, the Green Bay Packers will take on the New Orleans Saints in Week 1 of the season. Due to the damage done by Hurricane Ida, this game has been moved from New Orleans to Jacksonville. When you go to get the latest NFL lines, you will find the Green Bay Packers -4.5. That line moved following the news New Orleans is unable to host. The total for this game is 50.
The Packers still have their legendary quarterback Aaron Rodgers. Despite all the off-season drama, the signal-caller is back. Despite Rodgers turning 38 during the season, the Packers feel like they are going to be contenders with him leading the offense. The Packers drafted Rodgers in the first round all the way back in 2005.
Gone is Drew Brees, and in is Jameis Winston. While Brees was the steady ship, Winston is going to be the rocky ship. Winston has a big arm, but has a knack for throwing interceptions. Winston is going to get the start in Week 1 over Taysom Hill. Look for Hill to get opportunities throughout the game though.
The Packers also have two dynamite offensive players that can explode to the end zone at any time. Aaron Jones leads the rushing attack, while Davante Adams is the top receiver. If that is not enough, the Packers went out and got one of Rodgers’ all-time favorite targets in Randall Cobb during the offseason.
Alvin Kamara comes into the season as one of the biggest threats in all of the league. Kamara is not only an elite running back, but has turned into a dynamite pass catcher as well. He will look to make up the ground that is lost with Michael Thomas being out the first portion of the 2021 season.
