Nothing highlights the passion of Green Bay Packers fans more than Family Night. Thousands packed into Lambeau Field for a practice. Not even a preseason game, just a practice.

A chance to see the team make preparations for the upcoming season. It was a particularly interesting Family Night practice this year, with the Packers moving into the Jordan Love era.

What were the biggest takeaways from Saturday night? Let's look at three winners and two losers from the Packers' Family Night.

Winner: Jonathan Owens

Jonathan Owens started all 17 games for the Houston Texans a year ago, and he is closing in on a starting job for the Packers.

Owens was part of the first-team defense alongside Darnell Savage throughout the evening, a potential sign he has moved ahead of Rudy Ford on the depth chart.

"Second straight practice that Jonathan Owens has worked as the starting safety next to Darnell Savage," writes ESPN's Rob Demovsky.

It's all about stacking success, and Owens has done that.

The former undrafted free agent has impressed throughout training camp. He has earned more opportunities based on his performances on the practice field, and it seems he is in pole position to land a starting job this season. We'll see how the safety competition plays out over the next few weeks.
