Packers vs 49ers: Start Time, TV Channels, Live Stream Info

The Green Bay Packers may get to see quarterback Aaron Rodgers under center for the first time this year and the San Francisco 49ers could finally see Colin Kaepernick enter their starting quarterback battle as the two sides clash in Week 3’s preseason game Friday night at Levi’s Stadium.

Packers head coach Mike McCarthy has kept Rodgers on the sidelines during the two previous preseason victories (both by at least a touchdown over Cleveland and Oakland) with second-year quarterback Brett Hundley and rookies Joe Callahan and Marquise Williams splitting snaps.

But with Hundley listed as out due to an ankle injury and the importance of the preseason’s third contest, Rodgers is likely to handle a series or two in order to build some rapport with the offense before the regular season opener at Jacksonville on Sept. 11.

Green Bay’s also dealing with several other injuries on both sides of the ball, but each should allow younger players a holding out hope for a roster spot more time on the field. Safety Morgan Burnett, offensive linemen Josh Walker and Jacob Flores, and wide receiver Jeff Janis are all expected to sit against San Francisco.

Wide receiver Jordy Nelson, who’s missed all of 2015 with a torn ACL suffered during the preseason, is questionable with a knee injury as well.
Burnett’s absence could help rookies Marwin Evans and Kentrell Brice. Coming out of Louisiana Tech as an undrafted free agent, Brice has led the Packers with nine tackles in the preseason and Evans is tied for fourth on the team with five total tackles as Green Bay perhaps looks for more depth behind starters Burnett and Ha Ha Clinton-Dix.

Kaepernick was suffering from a “dead arm” as early as last week, but leading up to the showdown with the Packers he and Blaine Gabbert have split reps in practice this week. On Wednesday, first-year head coach Chip Kelly said he had yet to decide who will start against Green Bay.

“We haven’t discussed it, yet,” Kelly said to CSN Bay Area. “We got two days of training to go through. We’ll see. (Kaepernick is) on track. We’re excited and we’re hopeful he will be ready to go. But I’m not going to put the cart before the horse. We have a system. When we get to Friday, we’ll know exactly from (head athletic trainer Jeff Ferguson) who’s up and who’s down.”

Gabbert’s currently first on the depth chart and has completed 10 of his 19 passes for 132 yards and a touchdown, but Kaepernick thinks he can reclaim the job that was his for the last three and a half seasons.

“I’m going to go out and show everything I can these next two games,” Kaepernick said, “and make sure I put my best foot forward to show this organization, this team, this coaching staff, what I’m capable of.”

Meanwhile, San Francisco will continue to see who can claim inside linebacker duties next to All-Pro NaVorro Bowman. It’s currently a three-way race between Michael Wilhoite, Ray-Ray Armstrong, and Gerald Hodges. From a statistical perspective, Wilhoite has the edge with seven total tackles in two games and he’s currently first on the depth chart.

Kickoff: 10 p.m. ET but NFL Network will cut into the game starting at 11 p.m. ET

Raiders at Packers live stream: How to watch

The Oakland Raiders believe they are going to be a good team this year. Head coach Jack Del Rio constantly reminds his team that they will be and they looked the part in their first preseason games. Finally loaded with talent across the board at all levels, the Raiders have a chance to take over the AFC West if players can step up enough this season. The signs are there and they feel they can be even better than good. On Thursday night, they will get a good test against the Green Bay Packers.

After suffering through multiple injuries last season, the Packers are just hoping to get through the game without injuries. It will be reps for the starters that are just getting ready to get tuned up for the regular season. The bottom of the roster will be fighting for their jobs.

It will be interesting to watch the dynamic between these two teams. The Raiders really let their starters get a decent amount of reps in their first preseason game, so they should see plenty of action in this one as well.

Browns vs Packers live stream: How to watch

The Cleveland Browns are going through a full rebuild under new head coach Hue Jackson. After years of futility, the Browns have ripped down their entire organization well past the foundation and are going in a whole new direction of philosophies. By adding the offensive guru that is Jackson, the Browns are hopeful that quarterback Robert Griffin III can find himself again and become the dynamic quarterback they think he can be.

With 14 draft picks being added to the roster, there will be plenty of battles in training camp and chances for young players to make the roster. With so many young players across the board, every rep is critical and this is where the Browns are going to need development the most. On Friday night, the Browns will play the Green Bay Packers.

The Packers were supposed to have a preseason game under their belt already, but with the Hall of Fame Game turning into a disaster with field conditions, they will be playing their first one on Friday night.

Packers vs Colts 2016 live stream: How to watch the Hall of Fame Game online

The NFL returns Sunday night with the Hall of Fame Game featuring the Green Bay Packers and the Indianapolis Colts. If you’re not one of the lucky people traveling to Canton, Ohio to welcome the 2016 preseason, you can stream the game via WatchESPN on your computer, or you can enjoy it using the WatchESPN app on your mobile device.

Packers Game

While teams are generally wary of giving starters too much playing time in preseason action because of the need to avoid injuries in meaningless games, Colts head coach Chuck Pagano has said that he will play all of his starters, including quarterback Andrew Luck. Pagano still left a little room to change his mind about that, though.

Perhaps this will give the Colts a competitive advantage, considering that Andrew Luck likes to win. As a matter of fact, he recently told The MMQB that his favorite word is “win.”

After inking a new deal with the Colts that made him the highest-paid quarterback in the league, Indianapolis is surely hoping that Sunday’s game is the start of a comeback season for Luck.

The team will, however, be without first-round draft pick Ryan Kelly. Pagano ruled out the rookie center due to a shoulder strain.

For the Packers, Aaron Rodgers is unlikely to take the field on Sunday after being held out of Thursday’s practice. Green Bay’s backup, Brett Hundley, also missed Thursday’s practice with an ankle injury, so the Packers may be facing off with the Colts’ starters with either Joe Callahan or Marquise Williams — both of whom are undrafted free agent rookies — under center.

Rodgers was given the night off from practice to rest, and not because of any type of injury, meaning he could play if the Packers so choose. Rodgers doesn’t typically see a great deal of preseason action, so it won’t be surprising if Green Bay opts to keep him sidelined.

If the Packers get desperate, perhaps Brett Favre could pull the Packers jersey (not the Vikings one, obviously) from his locker in the Hall of Fame and suit up for Green Bay. Fans surely wouldn’t mind getting one more glimpse of the ol’ gunslinger following his induction into the Hall of Fame Saturday evening.

A few facts about Sunday’s game:

This will mark the first occasion the new Monday Night Football announcing team will call a game together. Jon Gruden and sideline reporter Lisa Salters will welcome Sean McDonough as the play-by-play guy.
Both teams have representatives being inducted into the Hall of Fame on Saturday. For the Packers, it’s Favre. The Colts will see former head coach Tony Dungy and wide receiver Marvin Harrison honored Saturday evening.
It is the fifth Hall of Fame game appearance for each team. The Colts are 2-2 all time, and the Packers are 1-2-1.
Green Bay’s singular tie in the Hall of Fame game came against the San Diego Chargers in 1980, and neither team scored. The game was tied 0-0 with about six minutes remaining when referees called the game due to inclement weather.

Packers’ 2016 preseason schedule finalized; Hall of Fame Game is only nationwide broadcast

Until Thursday, the Green Bay Packers had not known the exact details of their full schedule for the 2016 preseason. Oh, they knew who their opponents will be and where the games will be played. They even knew when the first two of their five games will kick off. But there were still three games with kickoff times and even dates that had not been completely finalized yet.

Packers Game

That is no longer the case, as the NFL announced the complete preseason schedule for the entire league on Thursday afternoon.

As mentioned above, we already knew that the Packers would play the Indianapolis Colts in the Hall of Fame Game – and we knew that the contest would kick off at 8:00 PM Eastern Time on Sunday August 7th. We also had been made aware that the team’s second game, a home contest against the Cleveland Browns, was set for 7:00 PM Central the following Friday, August 12th.

Here now is the team’s full preseason schedule for 2016.

Packers vs. Indianapolis Colts: 8:00 PM ET, Sunday, August 7th; Tom Benson Hall of Fame Stadium, Canton, OH (broadcast nationally on ESPN)
Packers vs. Cleveland Browns: 7:00 PM CT, Friday, August 12th; Lambeau Field
Packers vs. Oakland Raiders: 7:00 PM CT, Thursday, August 18th; Lambeau Field
Packers at San Francisco 49ers: 7:00 PM PT, Friday, August 26th; Levi’s Stadium, Santa Clara, CA
Packers at Kansas City Chiefs: 7:00 PM CT, Thursday, September 1; Arrowhead Stadium, Kansas City, MO
The Packers landed only a single nationally-televised game in the preseason, which is of course the Hall of Fame Game. That is for now, at least, as networks may pick up additional games over the course of the summer. The “third week” of the preseason (which features the Packers’ fourth game) sees at least one game televised nationwide each day from Thursday through Sunday, but Packers-49ers is not one of them.
