The NFL seems to have found a way to spark interest in the league and kick things off with a band. Giving the Super Bowl winners a chance to star on national television, with no competing games, builds enthusiasm like nothing else. In the 2011 NFL season they’ve gone one better and given NFL fans a treat with the past two Super Bowl winners meeting head to head in Green Bay on a Thursday night.
As a result, Packers vs Saints tickets are like gold and they’re generating a rush. The Green Bay Packers, like all Super Bowl Champions, are being heavily touted as the best team in the NFC. Despite the furor concerning the Philadelphia Eagles, the Packers are a proven commodity. But they do face the challenge all teams must meet when defending a Super Bowl win. Staying healthy, staying focused, and not believing the hype.
The New Orleans Saints are on a comeback trail. With their repeat hopes dashed by injury, the Saints met the challenge with an excellent draft and some solid pickups in free agency. But they play in the NFC South, perhaps the toughest division in the NFL.
Both teams have a huge wall to climb. It all begins Thursday night and Packers vs Saints tickets are the best way to see how it turns out.
