The New Orleans Saints look to extend a three-game winning streak Sunday when the team takes on the Green Bay Packers (4-2) at Lambeau Field.

A formidable obstacle on the road awaits the Saints, however, as the Packers (4-2) have taken full advantage of playing at home, where the Packers are 22-5 since 2014 for a league-best .815 winning percentage in that span.



There is also an aura about Lambeau Field, which represents hallowed ground among NFL venues.

"There are certain places there there's just a little extra and Lambeau is one of them places like Arrowhead Stadium," quarterback Drew Brees said. "And there are a few others where I mean there's just so much history, so much tradition that goes back to really the start of what is our professional football game today. Some of the great playes, coaches to have every played this game."

Fullback Zach Line, who spent four seasons in the NFC North as a member of the Minnesota Vikings, agreed with Brees.

"Everything about Lambeau is just football, it screams football," Line said. "My first time playing there, you come out of an old school tunnel, underground, pop out, it's a really cool setting for football.

"It's just hard to beat that grass field, a little bit of a crisp air in the north, it's more of what I'm accustomed to being from Michigan. I really liked playing there."
