Packers @ Saints Game Day Thread
 
1 Attachment(s)
The NFL regular season is finally here after three weeks of preseason. The new and expanded 17 game schedule will kick off with a doozy for the New Orleans Saints, as they take on Aaron Rodgers and the Green Bay Packers in a game that will not be played at either Caesar's Superdome or Lambeau Field.

Due to the devastation and impact of Hurricane Ida early last week, the two teams will face off in Jacksonville at TIAA Bank Field, home of the Jaguars. For the second time in the Sean Payton era, the Saints will open their season against the Packers. Last time this happened was in 2011, following the Packers Super Bowl victory in Super Bowl 45 against the Pittsburgh Steelers. The Packers won that game, 42-34.

The Saints off-season has been busy to say the least, but they have already announced their QB1 when they kickoff, naming Jameis Winston as the starting quarterback last week. The biggest news leading up to the game included the Saints releasing Latavius Murray, making rookie Tony Jones Jr. the de facto No. 2 running back.

Saints' Sean Payton: Tony Jones 'battled and earned that No. 2 spot'
That roster move allowed the Saints to trade for corner Bradley Roby, from the Texans. He won't play this Sunday but will be an immediate contributor for the defense.

The Packers off-season revolved around the status of their star quarterback, Aaron Rodgers, who says he considered retirement during their standoff this summer. Rodgers also stated he wanted "more say" in front office and team-building decisions. There is plenty of speculation that 2021 could be his final season in Green Bay.

Despite the off-season noise on both sides, both teams are ready to make yet another playoff run. The Saints won't have Michael Thomas for the start of the season, although that was already known, along with Tre'Quan Smith and Ken Crawley. who were both put on injured reserve on Friday. As America's Game of the Week on Fox, this game should live up to the billing.

Saints place WR Tre’Quan Smith, CB Ken Crawley on injured reserve; CB Marshon Lattimore full-go Friday

Numbers to Know
3: This is the second time in the Sean Payton era that the New Orleans Saints will start off their season against the Green Bay Packers, and the third time overall. The last time this happened was in 2011, where Aaron Rodgers and the Packers outlasted Drew Brees and the Saints in a 42-34 shootout. It was a Thursday night opener featuring the winners of the last two Super Bowls at the time. The previous time before that happened in 1977.
7: Since 2009, the Saints and Packers combined have appeared in seven of the last 12 NFC Championship games (Packers 5, Saints 2). In fact, the last three NFC Championships have included either team, with the Packers appearing in the last two, while the Saints last appeared during the 2018 season against the Los Angeles Rams. Both teams lost in the playoffs last season to the eventual Super Bowl champion, Tampa Bay Buccaneers.
27: This will be the 27th all time matchup between the Saints and Packers, with the Packers leading the all-time series 17-9. The Saints have not beaten in Packers in the regular season since 2017, when they won in Lambeau 26-17. Sean Payton is 4-2 against the Packers as the Saints head coach (missed 2012 matchup due to suspension).
