A roundup of the latest Green Bay Packers articles for Friday, August 9.

Welcome to Friday’s Packers News Report. Victory Friday, might I add. That’s right, as Green Bay picked up a win in their preseason opener against the Houston Texans.

There were many positives, and some negatives, from the game at Lambeau Field. But importantly, it was great to see football return. The first game of the Matt LaFleur era.

Perhaps the best part about preseason getting underway is it means the regular season is just around the corner. And with one game complete, we’re less than four weeks away from Green Bay’s season opener versus the Chicago Bears at Soldier Field. Just 27 more days to go.

Last night’s game is, of course, the main focus in the Packers News Report. So let’s get started with the roundup today.
