Look for both teams to score a lot of points here. Aaron Rodgers will look to beat New Orleans on the road for consecutive seasons, while Jameis Winston will be looking to prove himself once again.
Can Winston lead the Saints to a big win to kick off their season or will Rodgers and company take care of business? Find out below as we cover this matchup.
Green Bay Packers
Green Bay fans must be happy as the Aaron Rodgers situation has been resolved at least for now. It appeared for a while that Rodgers would be dealt, as he wasn’t happy with the front office. Last season the Packers had a tremendous season thanks to Rodgers who won MVP. Rodgers finished the season with 4,299 passing yards and 48 touchdowns with only five interceptions.
The Packers fell short in the NFC Championship as they lost to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers 31-26.
Rodgers should be in line for another huge season as he has shown no signs of slowing down despite being 37 years old.
The Packers have some big-time playmakers in receiver Davante Adams and running back Aaron Jones. Adams has established himself into one of the best receivers in the league. Adams finished with 1,374 yards and 18 touchdowns. Jones had 1,104 rushing yards and nine touchdowns in 14 games.
New Orleans Saints
The New Orleans Saints will have a fresh face at quarterback as Drew Brees retired. Jameis Winston will start the season under center. In his last full season in 2019, he had 5,109 passing yards and 33 touchdowns. The problem is that he had a league-high 30 interceptions.
While Winston certainly turns it over more than Brees, he does have a better arm and moves a lot better. It will be interesting when Michael Thomas returns from an ankle injury.
The Saints offense will center around Alvin Kamara. Kamara is one of the most explosive players in all of football. Kamara 1,688 total yards and 21 total touchdowns.
