The regular season is finally underway and it starts in grand fashion as the defending Super Bowl champion Packers take on the New Orleans Saints. Both teams are expected to be title contenders and rightfully so as they each have elite quarterbacks. While the Saints are an awfully tough test this early in the year, the Packers could be too much to handle. Aaron Rodgers will have even more weapons at his disposal with Jermichael Finley returning and the defense is fully healthy as well. A defending Super Bowl champ hasn’t lost their opening game since the 1999 season and I would expect the trend to continue.
Prediction: Saints 20 Packers (-4.5) 27
