Against Nelson, the most the Lions can do is try to slow him down and prevent any game-wrecking plays, coordinator Teryl Austin said.
New York Jets coach Rex Ryan paid the Packers’ Jordy Nelson perhaps the highest compliment that a wideout can receive.
Fantasy football players are also ready to go all-in on Thursday night. Finding favorable matchups in the first game on the schedule each week gives a player a big edge going into Sunday.
Two of the NFL’s most decorated franchises will meet this Sunday when the Packers and 49ers meet in a NFC Wild Card matchup. The winner will move on in the playoffs, while the loser will face a disappointing end to a season that started with much higher aspirations.
Valenti said Nelson will get “8 to 10 touchdowns” this year.
