This year I’d strongly recommend to watch the games online via NFL Game Rewind. I can’t tell if we’ll be able to see games live online this year or not, but you could with the preseason games so I’d assume that will also be the case with regular season games. I bought the preseason pass and it was the best $20 (for all preason games) I ever spent on entertainment.
Good luck Twin Cities Packer fans, and GO PACK!
