The kickoff to the NFL pre-season for the Packers will come at a likely rainy Lambeau Field. The 7:30 PM kickoff will probably be a saturated one and fans are reminded umbrellas are not permitted in the stadium. So gather your rain ponchos before you leave for the game tonight.
The number of snaps Aaron Rodgers will take tonight is unknown. He may take just the first series, the first quarter or he may not take any snaps tonight. If the conditions are less than ideal, it is even less likely Rodgers will play tonight against the Eagles.
Tonight will mark the beginning of a very big pre-season for backup quarterback Brett Hundley. Hundley is presumably auditioning for his next job. If he performs well in the next four games his stock will rise even higher. It is expected that Green Bay would trade him after the season to garner more draft picks before Hundley’s rookie contract expires after next season.
