The game got moved to Jacksonville as the city of New Orleans, and all of Louisiana is still dealing with the tragic aftermath of hurricane Ida. The game will hopefully provide a moment of respite for the residents dealing with the storm damage. It features one of the best NFL QBs of all time in Aaron Rodgers, who sat out the entire preseason. Though Rodgers’ lack of preseason experience might make him rusty for week one, at least for the first few drives. But then again, it’s Rodgers, so even if he has a slow start he’ll more than likley still have a fantastic game
The Saints will also be debuting a new QB1 in Jameis Winston, so there’s plenty of intrigue in this one. He beat out Taysom Hill for the starting job in training camp. The former first-round pick had moderate success as a starter in Tampa, but he turned the ball over a ton. If he can limit his interceptions, this could be a resurgence for the Heisman Trophy winner.
