The Green Bay Packers defeated the New Orleans Saints in the preseason. What did we learn?

Wins and losses are irrelevant in August, but it sure felt good to see the Green Bay Packers win a football game at Lambeau Field.

It was their only home preseason game of the year. The next time we see the Packers at Lambeau Field, it will be Week 2 of the regular season versus the Chicago Bears.

Like last week, this was a game for the backups, young players, and those on the roster bubble.

What did we learn from Green Bay’s preseason performance?

3. Tyler Davis continues to struggle

Tight end Tyler Davis received plenty of praise in the offseason, but he’s done himself no favors this summer. He has followed up a disappointing training camp with an awful preseason.

It started with a penalty. Jordan Love found Romeo Doubs for a beautiful 17-yard reception, only for it to be called back due to a holding penalty on Davis. Not a good start.

Davis made just one catch in the game, for seven yards, but he fumbled and lost possession.

He hasn’t offered much as a pass catcher and has struggled as a blocker. It’s been a nightmare start to the preseason for Davis, and he has it all to do now to make the roster.
