Sunday will mark the first game of this 2017 NFL season that the #Green Bay Packers play without star quarterback #Aaron Rodgers. In his place will be backup #Brett Hundley who was able to complete a touchdown pass in the team's loss to Minnesota last week. Today the Packers are back home but hosting veteran quarterback Drew Brees and the New Orleans Saints. Both teams are looking to remain alive in the NFL Playoffs picture. Here's the latest Saints vs. Packers game preview including matchup odds, start time, television channel, and how to see the game live streaming online.

NFL game preview

At 3-2 so far this season, the New Orleans Saints are in good position to still contend in the NFC.

The team comes into today's game having won three in a row including last week's 52-38 blowout of the Detroit Lions. They'll be chomping at the bits to take advantage of a Packers team lacking Aaron Rodgers at the quarterback spot today. Only offensive tackle Terron Armstead and wide receiver Willie Snead are listed as "questionable" for the Saints ahead of today's matchup.

On the other side, the Green Bay Packers were left stunned last week as they not only lost to the Minnesota Vikings, 23-10 on the road but also saw veteran QB Aaron Rodgers [VIDEO] leave the game with an injury. It was later determined that Rodgers had suffered a broken collarbone. Later reports indicated he could be done for the season after surgery. That leaves Brett Hundley as the team's first option at the QB spot.

Hundley stepped in for Rodgers against the Vikings and was 18-for-33 with 157 yards and a touchdown. However, he also threw three interceptions.

Normally in this situation, the Green Bay Packers would probably be home favorites. However, the loss of Rodgers is big and gives oddsmakers enough reason to make New Orleans a 3.5-points favorite for today's spread. The Saints are also -190 on the moneyline while the Packers are +160 underdogs. The over/under points total is 47.
