Three reasons why the Green Bay Packers will beat the New Orleans Saints in Week 1.

After months of waiting, in what was an interesting offseason for the Green Bay Packers, the return of regular-season football is only a week away.

The Packers kick things off against one of their biggest NFC rivals in recent years, the New Orleans Saints. The two met in Week 3 last season, with Green Bay edging a thriller between two talented offenses.

It will be great to see fans back in stadiums again this season. The Packers’ home opener will have to wait another week, when they will host the Detroit Lions on Monday Night Football.

Green Bay plays on the road against New Orleans, although the game will be played at TIAA Bank Field in Jacksonville due to Hurricane Ida. It will make for a different game. Rather than being played indoors at the Superdome, both teams will have to deal with potentially very hot conditions on a September afternoon in Florida.

The Packers will enter the season as one of the biggest contenders in the NFC, but they face a challenging season opener against the Saints.

That said, here are three reasons why the Packers will make the perfect start next weekend.
