Packers (-2.5) over BRONCOS Let's see: 6-0 vs. 6-0. No edge there . . . Both are teams coming off a bye week. No edge there . . . Denver's defense is No. 1 overall, allowing the fewest yards (281.3), while Green Bay is No. 1 in points allowed per game (16.8). No edge there . . . So it boils down to the QBs - Aaron Rodgers vs. Peyton Manning . Huge edge there, to Mr. Discount Double Check. Maybe a few years ago, the glaring edge would not have been such a big deal, but check the numbers.

Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers was in Nick Foles' shoes last season. He offered the Eagles quarterback some simple advice regarding his broken collarbone: Listen to your body. Rodgers broke his left collarbone on Nov. 4 last year during a loss to the Chicago Bears. He missed the next seven games. Foles suffered the same injury, also to his non-throwing shoulder, Nov. 2 during the Eagles' victory at Houston. He is expected to be sidelined for six to eight weeks. The Eagles will visit Green Bay on Sunday and that means dealing with Rodgers, whose career passer rating of 106.2 is the highest in NFL history.

EAGLES RADIO VOICE Merrill Reese was disappointed when he entered the NovaCare media room yesterday and heard that Aaron Rodgers isn't expected to play when the Eagles visit Green Bay tomorrow night. Someone observed that Rodgers, 31, a two-time NFL MVP, probably doesn't need to play the Eagles in the preseason to get ready to lead the Packers into the games that count. "Yes, but I need him to play!" Reese joked. Like many fans and media observers, Reese had been looking forward to seeing how the Eagles' much-discussed defensive improvements would stack up, even in a meaningless game, against the NFC's top quarterback.

LANDOVER, Md. - This gaffe was not as egregious as the one DeSean Jackson made as a rookie wide receiver for the Eagles in 2008. Jackson lost what would have been his first NFL touchdown when he celebrated too early and flipped the ball behind him at the 1-yard line. After a challenge by the Dallas Cowboys, what was initially called a touchdown was overturned. It was an embarrassing lesson for Jackson but not costly to the Eagles because they scored a touchdown on the next play.

Will we see bachelorette JoJo Fletcher and her beau in Happy Valley for a Penn State football game on the opening day of the 2016 season? It just may very well happen.

Now Penn State's head coach, Franklin said Thursday at football media day that he would love to have Rodgers and his fiancée come to a game, and he set out to do that later in the day on Twitter.
