The Green Bay Packers vs. Arizona Cardinals, Green Bay

Football is back! Another season of Green Bay Packers football begins Friday, August 9 at 7pm at Lambeau Field where the Packers face off against the Arizona Cardinals. After losing in the 2012 Playoffs, fans are eager to see the Packers take the field again. Mike McCarthy says he wants “all four quarterbacks to play“, so fans will get the first game-time look at back-up quarterbacks. Fan favorite Jordy Nelson is out for all of the pre-season and won’t be making any official appearances for a few wakes. Here’s to an exciting “first” game — and a Packers win!
