Take in the history at the NFL’s oldest operating stadium, Lambeau Field, home of the Green Bay Packers. Green Bay is a small town with a big history of football championships. Will Aaron Rodgers be able to punch the Packer’s ticket to another Super Bowl? Get a first-hand look at the Packers opening game of the 2018 season. In 2017, the Packers finished 7-9 after losing Rodgers to a collar bone injury in the sixth game of the year.
