The Green Bay Packers are one of the most storied franchises in all of the NFL and are supported by one of the most passionate fan bases in all of sports. Well, the fans upheld their reputation as they packed Lambeau Field for the Packers' 19th Family Night Scrimmage on Friday night. The event featured activities for fans starting at 1:30 p.m. with fans being able to watch a full practice in the evening.
The event is so popular that not only do tens of thousands of fans typically flock to the stadium to watch the Packers practice, but it's even broadcasted on over 10 local television channels. The Packers sold out over 78,000 tickets for Family Night in 2018.
Fans had a few storylines to watch out for during Friday's practice. They watched how new head coach Matt LaFleur interacted with quarterback Aaron Rodgers and saw what LaFleur's new offense looked like. It also must have been interesting to see how the defense looks with notable additions like Rashan Gary, Preston Smith and Za’Darius Smith.
It already seems like Rodgers has a good relationship with LaFleur after he pranked his coach at practice this week. Fans will surely love to see a happy and motivated Rodgers as the team looks to get back to its winning ways in 2019.
