San Francisco 49ers - The Niners are favorite to win this match
The San Francisco 49ers have a new look this season. The team's veteran quarterback, Jimmy Garoppolo, will not be part of the team because he is likely to be traded. Trey Lance is now the quarterback for San Francisco. The 49ers' management thinks their third-round draft pick in 2021 will be a top-tier quarterback in this league. Lance showed some of his skills in the six games he played last year. He threw for more than 600 yards, with five touchdowns and two picks. Lance probably won't get to play very much in this game. Also, Nate Sudfield and Brock Purdy, both of whom have been QBs for a long time, will take turns starting in each of the three preseason games. In his three NFL seasons, Sudfield has played for the Eagles.
Nick Bosa will miss the upcoming season, the 49ers' best defensive end. Last year, they had trouble stopping the pass because their pass rush was weak. The team's management chose Drake Jackson in the draft so that he could play.
Green Bay Packers - an important opening for the Indian Packers
The Packers averaged 26.5 points last year, making them 10th in the league. They gave up an average of 21.8 points per game, which put them 14th in the league. The Green Bay Packers are a fun team to watch in the preseason because they keep an eye on the situation with their backup quarterback. Aaron Rodgers probably won't play in the preseason because he just got a huge contract for four years. There are only three games in the preseason. Jordan Love, who the Packers picked from Utah State in the first round of the 2020 draft, has a great chance this summer. In limited regular season action last year, the 23-year-old quarterback threw four touchdown passes and three interceptions. In two preseason games in 2021, Love threw for 271 yards, one touchdown, and one interception. The Packers can also use Danny Etling, who is the third-string quarterback. Etling has never played in an NFL game during the regular season.Green Bay's receiving group is a little question mark now that DaVante Adams has left. Their go-to guys are Sammy Watkins and Allen Lazard. They won't get to do much, if anything, in this one. Aaron Jones is the Packers' #1 RB, and A.J. Dillon is the expected #2. In 2021, Dillon ran for 803 yards, which was a career-high. He averaged 4.3 yards per run. Third-string RB Kylin Hill is on the PUP list, so he won't play. One of the best players the Packers picked in the draft was linebacker Quay Walker.
