    The Saints come into Lambeau Field fresh off a Monday night win at Carolina to remain unbeaten while the Packers suffered their first loss of the year last week against the Falcons on a late field goal. In their first two games, the Saints haven’t scored a touchdown until the third quarter and have yet to score more than 20 points. The Packers have been outscored 166-11 in the fourth quarter of their two games.

    Main Storylines to Watch

    How are the hamstrings?? Christian Watson missed his second consecutive game last week while Aaron Jones missed Week 2 as well, both dealing with hamstring issues. Watson missed practice Thursday but did not suffer a setback per head coach Matt LaFleur. Jones returned to practice in some capacity on Thursday. Both of these players will probably end up being true game-time decisions, so keep an eye on their status right up till the inactive reports are released.

    What to make of the Saints running back situation? Jamal Williams will be out with a hamstring injury for this game. Kendre Miller will return in this contest. Tony Jones is coming off two touchdowns in Week 2. Taysom Hill just rushed for 75 yards on nine carries in Week 2. There are different plays to make with each player in this matchup (scroll down).
