Instead of the Super Bowl winner opening the season Montravius Adams Jersey White , the NFL is giving a nod to history for a milestone year."WhiteFanposts Fanshots Sections The APC PodcastPackers Film RoomFantasy Football AdviceCDTShareTweetShareShareNFL announces Packers-Bears game to open 2019 season on Thursday NightMilwaukee Journal Sentinel-USA TIt’s official: the NFL will kick off its 100th season with another edition of its oldest and most-played rivalry.Normally, the league begins each season with last year’s Super Bowl winner hosting a rival or other premier matchup on the Thursday of week one. However, for the 2019 season — the 100th campaign in the league’s history — the plan has changed, in a nod to history. The Green Bay Packers and Chicago Bears will play in the upcoming season’s kickoff game, to be held at Soldier Field in Chicago. The exact date of the game will be September 5th, with kickoff taking place at 7:20 PM Central Time.Although the matchup had been widely speculated previously, the league made the announcement official on Monday afternoon during this week’s annual meeting. This will be the 199th meeting between the two legendary franchises in their storied history Bryan Bulaga Jersey , and the 197th in the regular season. The Packers hold a 97-95-6 lead overall, and they took the head-to-head lead early on in 2017 with a 35-14 victory. That put the Packers ahead in the rivalry for the first time in over eight decades. Meanwhile, the playoff history is tied at one win apiece.In addition, the two franchises rank first and second in the number of members of the Pro Football Hall of Fame who are claimed by individual franchises. 28 individuals who spent significant time with the Bears are in the Hall, while the Packers claim 25.With this game taking the Thursday Night time slot, the Super Bowl champion New England Patriots will instead open their season on Sunday Night. Their opponent has not been announced yet. When examining the performance of the defense in the Green Bay Packers’ 22-0 win over the Buffalo Bills, it seems some are concluding the Bills are just bad on offense rather than the Packers making a leap on defense.Both can be and likely are true.The game was clearly moving way too fast for Buffalo rookie quarterback Josh Allen. Yes the Bills obliterated Minnesota just a week prior Kyle Murphy Jersey White , but Allen really didn’t play all that well and our own Paul Noonan broke it down wel here. Meanwhile, the Packers showed improvement. The interior pass rush developed as we all hoped it would and Kyler Fackrell(!!!;) has three sacks though he was gifted one when Allen tripped over his own man.Green Bay will have to continue improving and they’re not out of the woods yet, but defensive coordinator Mike Pettine’ scheme seems to be settling in and the Packers got their first shutout since 2010. That season ended pretty well if I remember correctly.Anyways, there is more on the defense plus why the offense is of concern but not necessarily ‘awful’ in today’s cheese curds.Packers analysis: Inside pass rushers must keep bringing pressure—PackersNews.comEveryone has been waiting for the defensive line to consistently get to the quarterback given the team’s issues at edge rusher, and it finally happened Sunday.Now they just need to keep it up.Packers defense must keep progressing—Packers.comHead coach Mike McCarthy was impressed by his defense’s performance, but like many fans he is wondering what is next? What will they do now that they’ve put a solid effort for 60 minutes on tape.Two for Tuesdays: 2 underrated plays from Packers’ Week 4 win—Packers WireEveryone is rightfully fawning over Aaron Jones at running back, but don’t forget Ty Montgomery. Good things happen when he touches the ball abd with Jones’ emerging presence he could be a weapon all over the field.Packers offense not ‘terrible’ but concerning after four games—247Sports.comRodgers called the offense ‘terrible’ after Sunday’s game and while that might be a reach Womens Vince Biegel Jersey , yet understandable given the quarterback’s competitive nature, there are signs the offense is not well.Crash releases 70 cows onto Atlanta-area highway—UPIThis definitely won’t help traffics moo-ve along. For travelers this must have been an udderly frustrating experience or at least dairy trying. OK, I’ve milked these puns long enough.
