One to watch

Ben Niemann

Niemann has been one of the standouts of the preseason—garnering 11 total tackles, which includes one that came on a key fourth down stop inside the red zone against the Houston Texans in Week 1, but he also had a pick-6 against the Atlanta Falcons in Week 2 that people won’t soon forget.

Key matchup

Patrick Mahomes v DeShone Kizer

Kizer is an up and coming prospect in Green Bay behind the highest paid player in NFL history, one for the future but highly rated!

We already know what a cannon Mahomes has for an arm!

Injuries

Eric Berry

Step Durham

Daniel Sorensen

What they said

“We have a plan. We really look at the opportunities, snaps,” said McCarthy in his pre-practice news conference on Tuesday morning. “So it’s really about all three of those guys, and that’s what we’ll weigh. … I think it’s important really to get Tim probably more snaps than the other two, just because he did not have an opportunity to play in Oakland.”

What we said

“I normally give this game to the young guys and let them play. That means from the second quarter on, they will get most of the reps in this game,” Reid said. “That’s the neat part about the game is that everyone gets to get out there and play and get extended time. Like we told them day one, try to make the final evaluation by [General Manager] Brett Veach as tough as you can.”
