Over 63,000 people waited out some early storms to see their Green Bay Packers take the hallowed grounds of Lambeau Field for the first time since they defeated the New York Giants in the NFC Wild Card Round in January. Rain and a storm cell delayed the start by about a half hour as the bleachers were still filling in when the Packers took the field for warm-ups. While two-minute drill sputtered a little bit, it was only because the Packers defense shined as defensive tackle Kenny Clark stripped Mark Ripkowski to force a fumble recovered by Clay Matthews. Kicker Mason Crosby closed things out with a rough night after going a near perfect 22-23 before the scrimmage. No major injuries occurred during the nearly 100-minute practice, which gave way to fireworks at about 9:45 p.m.
The Packers will have Sunday off before going back to the practice field Monday as they prepare to face the Philadelphia Eagles at Lambeau Field Thursday evening.
