Green Bay Packers at Jacksonville Jaguars – Sunday 18:00, Sky Sports 1
Star quarterback Aaron Rodgers and the Green Bay Packers open up against the summer’s big spenders the Jacksonville Jaguars in Florida this opening weekend. Packers star receiver Jordy Nelson is back after knee surgery and after adding tight end Jared Cook the Pack they look to be on verge of getting it together again on offense after an unusually slow season last year.
Jacksonville meanwhile spent pretty big in free agency and got what many considered to be the two best players in the NFL draft. They’ve added Chris Ivory at running back and the new receivers the two Allen's, Robinson and Hurns, have huge potential in the position.
