When Aaron Rodgers and Drew Brees square off, you expect fireworks. It’s entirely possible we still get them tonight, but each legendary quarterback will be working at a disadvantage due to the absence of their top receiver. Davante Adams and Michael Thomas are on the sidelines for this one, which is sure to force Rodgers and Brees to spread the ball around a bit more than they usually like to.
Lucky for them, star running backs Aaron Jones and Alvin Kamara, off to great starts to the season, are up to the task of shouldering the load. And the defenses should be up to the challenge of making things difficult for the opposing team’s quarterback as well. We may not have many more chances to watch these two all-time greats go head-to-head, so let’s enjoy this one while we can by live-blogging the festivities below.
