By Green Bay Packers
With a win over the Philadelphia Eagles last week, the Green Bay Packers won their preseason opener for the third consecutive year. ‘The Pack’ will look to continue their winning ways Saturday night against the Redskins. Aaron Rodgers is expected to play the first series.
With games against Philadelphia and Washington, this is the first time since 1985 that Green Bay has faced two teams from the NFC East in the preseason. That year the Packers opened the preseason with road games at Dallas and at the N.Y. Giants. Dating back to 2000, this is just the second time (2013) that Green Bay has faced three NFC teams in the preseason.
The Packers will finish up the road slate of the preseason with a trip to Denver to play the Broncos on Saturday, Aug. 26. It will be Green Bay’s first preseason trip to Denver since 2008, when it won, 27-24.
