We’re about 24 hours away from the first game of what could potentially be Aaron Rodgers‘ last season in Green Bay.
Rodgers, who pushed for a trade this offseason, is now 100 percent committed to the Packers for the 2021 season.
Green Bay is set to open the 2021 season on Sunday against New Orleans. While the Packers are the favorites, NFL.com has a “bold” prediction for the Week 1 contest.
NFL.com is predicting Saints quarterback Jameis Winston to out-throw Rodgers on Sunday.
Jameis Winston goes into Week 1 without three of the Saints’ top four receivers from last season — Jared Cook, Emmanuel Sanders and Michael Thomas, who begins the season on the PUP list — but he’s up to the challenge. The former No. 1 overall pick outthrows reigning MVP Aaron Rodgers, who returned all of his weapons and then some, giving confidence to Saints fans in the new era.
Winston has put up big numbers throughout his career. Unfortunately, those big numbers often include interceptions. He’ll have to avoid those on Sunday.
The Packers and the Saints will kick off at 4:25 p.m. E.T.
The game will air on FOX.
