The Green Bay Packers kickoff their second preseason game this Saturday at 3 pm central in St. Louis. The Rams are a young, ascending team and will be a good test for a Packers roster still taking shape.

Coach McCarthy announced earlier in the week that Aaron Rodgers will play, so we’ll get our first look at the first-team offense with the former MVP at the helm.

In general, we should get a more extensive look at all the Green Bay starters this week, but like the preseason opener, the day will still be dominated by the second and third-string guys trying to carve out spots for themselves on the roster.

Here are my top things to watch in the Packers vs. Rams preseason matchup.
