Watch anywhere: Packers vs Saints live stream for free
It's easy to forget just how impressive the early chapters of Winston's NFL career were, what with all the picks that followed. Saints fans will be hoping that laser eye surgery was the key to unlock his talents again, though 20/20 vision or not, he may find things tough against the Packers D.
Their pass rush, led by Za'Darius Smith, was amongst the best in the league last season. Giving it to Alvin Kamara early and often could be the best strategy, as he performed rather well against Green Bay when they faced off a year ago, scoring twice and eating up 197 yards.
But the Packers have their own stud RB in Aaron Jones, and we all know about that A-Rod-Davante Adams connection. Off-field tensions seemed to fuel Rodgers to the glorious heights he hit last season. Will it be the case again?
