    It’s the Green Bay Packers’ 100th year of football, and as a result, the team requested a home game against their oldest rival, the Chicago Bears, in week one. Not only did the NFL grant that request, but they put the game in prime time on Sunday Night Football, capping Youth Jaire Alexander Jersey off what is sure to be a fun opening Sunday for the 2018 regular season.The addition of Khalil Mack adds to the drama surrounding this Packers-Bears game, but there’s plenty of that to go around today. We have one of the league’s brightest young players in DeShaun Watson playing against the league’s oldest star quarterback, Tom Brady. We have a handful of divisional matchups, which are sure to provide some interesting results. There’s also one of the league’s up-and-coming offensive minds, 49ers head coach Kyle Shanahan, facing a defensive mastermind in the Vikings’ Mike Zimmer.It should be a fun one so kick back, enjoy, and join us here at APC for all of today’s games!EARLY GAMESAll games scheduled for 1:00 PM ETBuffalo Bills at Baltimore RavensM&T Bank StadiumBaltimore, MDCBSPittsburgh Steelers at Cleveland BrownsFirstEnergy StadiumCleveland, OHCBSCincinnati Bengals at Indianapolis ColtsLucas Oil StadiumIndianapolis, INCBSTennessee Titans at Miami DolphinsHard Rock StadiumMiami, FLFOXSan Francisco 49ers at Minnesota VikingsU.S. Bank StadiumMinneapolis, MNFOXHouston Texans at New England PatriotsGillette StadiumFoxboro, MACBSTampa Bay Buccaneers at New Orleans SaintsMercedes-Benz SuperdomeNew Orleans, LAFOXJacksonville Jaguars at New York GiantsMetLife StadiumEast Rutherford Womens Tramon Williams Jersey , NJFOXAFTERNOON GAMESKansas City Chiefs at Los Angeles Chargers1:05 PM PT (4:05 PM ET)StubHub CenterCarson, CACBSWashington at Arizona Cardinals1:25 PM PT (4:25 PM ET)University of Phoenix StadiumGlendale, AZFOXDallas Cowboys at Carolina Panthers1:25 PM PT (4:25 PM ET)Bank of America StadiumCharlotte, NCFOXSeattle Seahawks at Denver Broncos2:25 PM PT (4:25 PM ET)Mile High StadiumDenver, COFOXSunday Night FootballChicago Bears at Green Bay Packers7:20 PM CT (8:20 ET)Lambeau FieldGreen Bay, WINBCPackers’ Quinten Rollins has hamstring injury, which will affect roster cuts In a day already filled with difficult decisions for front office personnel, the Green Bay Packers’ brass will face a murky situation in light of Quinten Rollins’ reported hamstring injury.The team’s former second-round pick had put himself in position for one of the final spots on the 53-man roster due in part to his potential versatility. Green Bay’s safety depth is cloudy and Rollins, who has almost exclusively played cornerback throughout his short Packers’ career, had shown potential versatility to find a role in that area this season. Despite a rocky, to say the least, experience as a punt returner in preseason action, Rollins was beginning to carve out a niche to make the final roster in the secondary as a filler of several positions when needed.However, a reported hamstring injury that Rollins suffered in Thursday night’s game creates a cloudier situation for Rollins and the Packers, as reports suggest that the former may be unable to play in week one at least. Green Bay could place the fourth-year pro on Injured Reserve with the opportunity to designate him as one of two players able to return six weeks from the date of injury. However, he must count as one of the players on the initial 53-man roster in order for the Packers to make that choice. Whether Rollins has proven enough as a swing-man defensive back to warrant being in that discussion is debatable.Of course, this could also work against Rollins and end his tenure in Green Bay, one that was marred by injuries and inconsistent play. The Packers could reach an injury settlement with Rollins and open a spot for players like Raven Greene and Marwin Evans at safety or even Herb Waters and Demetri Goodson at cornerback. Josh Hawkins has already reportedly released from the team.As Rollins awaits his fate in Green Bay, the day of final cuts marches on. Stay tuned to APC for more news on the final roster trimming.
