The Green Bay Packers play only their second game in 23 days when they visit the Denver Broncos in Week 7.
Green Bay hosted the Detroit Lions on Thursday Night Football, didn't play again until the following week's Monday Night Football, and then went on bye. It doesn't help that they lost both games. Their last victory was on September 24.
On Sunday afternoon, the Packers take on the 1-5 Broncos, a potential get-right game for Matt LaFleur's team. But they will need to play well. Another performance like their previous two, and they could struggle.
Here is everything you need to know ahead of Packers-Broncos in Week 7.
What time is the Packers game today?
- Date: Sunday, October 22
- Time: 3:25 p.m. CT
- Location: Empower Field at Mile High
It's the Packers' first Sunday afternoon game since beating the New Orleans Saints in Week 3. Their previous two games before the bye were in primetime.
Green Bay also travels to Denver for the first time since 2015. The Packers will hope for a better performance than in that game. Like this year, the Packers were coming off their bye, but the Broncos' defense held Aaron Rodgers to 77 yards passing in a dominant 29-10 victory for the home team.
Rodgers and Peyton Manning were the quarterbacks that day. A lot has changed. Green Bay aims to leave Empower Field with a much-needed victory.
What channel is the Packers game on today?
- TV channel: CBS
- Announcers: Kevin Harlan, Trent Green
If you watch Packers home preseason games, you'll know how talented Kevin Harlan is. He often calls the preseason contests at Lambeau Field and is one of the best in the business.
Harlan has made some hilarious calls over the years, including providing play-by-play as a drunk fan ran onto the field and was chased by security. It's hard not to love his passion and enthusiasm.
Harlan also has a connection to the Packers. He was born in Milwaukee, and his father, Bob Harlan, was the Packers president from 1989-2006.
We get to enjoy Harlan during the preseason games. It will be great to hear him calling a Packers regular season contest. If Jordan Love produces some magic, Harlan will match it with the perfect call, as he so often does.

Broncos injury report

One of these two teams is coming off its bye week. You wouldn't guess it.
The Packers will get healthy over the bye, right? Oh, how wrong we were. Green Bay has 10 players with injury designations for Week 7. De'Vondre Campbell is doubtful to play due to an ankle injury. The other nine are questionable, which means their status for Sunday's game is up in the air.
It doesn't help that Jaire Alexander and Yosh Nijman were added to the injury report during the week. There's never a good sign.
Denver started the week with six players on its injury report, but five were removed on Friday. Tight end Greg Dulcich is out with a hamstring injury.
