Clay Matthews looks his best on the cover of this year's SI NFL Preview regional issue.

Clay Matthews covers Sports Illustrated

It was announced today that Clay Matthews III, the Packers outside linebacker extraordinaire, has been selected as the cover boy for the Sports Illustrated regional NFL Preview issue.

As the national magazine releases its annual preview, Matthews and the Packers prepare to take on the New Orleans Saints next Thursday in the match-up of the past two Super Bowl winners at historic Lambeau Field.

The Thursday, Sept. 8, matchup opens the NFL season and sets up a monumental showdown between Aaron Rodgers and Drew Brees.

It’s time to get back to football and the SI Preview is sure to get one’s blood pumping – especially when the big news is that Peter King disses the Packers in favor of the Atlanta Falcons, who he sees winning the Super Bowl over the San Diego Chargers, 24-20.

Sorry, Peter.

This year you are wrong.

Nobody’s perfect.
