If you are interested in making a trip to Green Bay this year to watch the Packers, it might be difficult to land tickets to regular season games, but you might have an easier time in visiting “Mecca” this preseason.
There are a couple of advantages to this … the weather is usually much warmer at this time of year than say a game in December … ahahaha … and you can even make it a summer vacation stop.
Though you don’t get to see the starters play the entire game, I’ve always found preseason games entertaining nonetheless … and they can also be telling. For instance, you get to see the stars of tomorrow in their first action and you can also gauge the depth of the overall team by how these second and third-stringers play. What you will see are players who give it their all as they try to impress coaches and land a spot on the squad.
In addition to the preseason games below, the Packers will also host its annual Family Night Saturday, Aug. 6. For $10 you get to sit in Lambeau Field and watch the Packers run through a practice session … this will be a bit different from years past when the Packers held a full fledged scrimmage.
Two of the four games will be at home and the Indianapolis game will be broadcast nationally on CBS.
