The Green Bay Packers will host the New Orleans Saints this evening to kickoff the 2011 NFL season. After a lockout put the season in doubt, it is finally here with a matchup of two of the league's elite quarterbacks. The previous two Super Bowl winners will do battle at Lambeau Field.
Aaron Rodgers will lead his Packers onto the field as the defending Super Bowl champions. Drew Brees will be leading a Saints team poised to get back to the top after a pitiful playoff performance against the Seattle Seahawks.
Donald Driver starts the season needing 42 receiving yards to become the Packers all-time leader in receiving yards. With a strong performance against the Saints, Driver will break the record set by James Lofton in 1986.
Here are some interesting things to watch for as you enjoy the game.
