The New Orleans Saints are at Lambeau Field set to take on the Green Bay Packers shortly. Earlier this week, they held two joint practices with the Packers on Tuesday and Wednesday, followed by a brief walk-through on Thursday. The players more than welcomed an opportunity to practice against their upcoming opponent. CB Marshon Lattimore said, “It’s always better going against someone else than your teammates. It’s a challenge and just being competitive out there is way better than going against your teammates every day.”

Tyrann Mathieu: It’s about to get real, real soon. Gotta make the most of these practices. Said it’s good to get a chance to go up against the Packers and get competitive. #SaintsCamp— Erin Summers (@ErinESummers) August 16, 2022
