The Green Bay Packers and Los Angeles Rams are both 2-1 as they get ready for their preseason finale tonight at Lambeau Field.
Both teams are expected to sit many of their starters, so the coaches can get a final look at players on the bubble before the teams’ rosters are cut from 90 players each to 53 by late Saturday.
For the Packers, it will also give key players like Clay Matthews and Bryan Bulaga a chance to keep recovering from injuries before the season begins for real on Sept. 10.
Tonight also gives Green Bay’s kicking combo one final tuneup for placekicker Mason Crosby, his holder Brett Goode, and rookie punter Justin Vogel.
Offensive coordinator Edgar Bennett will call the plays, so head coach Mike McCarthy can focus on evaluating final candidates for the Opening Day roster.
