The Texans will travel to Green Bay early before their Week One preseason game to participate in joint practices with the Packers.

The teams have never previously met in the preseason.

The Packers do not know where they will play their key Week Three preseason game. They play the Raiders but do not know where.

Packers president Mark Murphy has confirmed the team was in discussions with the Raiders about moving the exhibition to Canada, with the top two options being Saskatchewan or Winnipeg, Ryan Wood of packersnews.com reports. Saskatchewan, though, has stadium issues, so Winnipeg appears the more likely option if the teams play in Canada.

The teams prefer not to play in Oakland because of the baseball infield, and Wood said a chance exists the Packers could end up hosting the game if it’s not moved to Canada.

    Clowney gets to practice against real live Clowns. How bout that!!

    Clowns? Good one.
    The Green Bay Packers have had 100 years of varying success, and have won championships throughout every major change the league has endured.
    They are obviously one of the most successful teams in NFL history, and should be treated as such by even the most novice of football fans.

    While the Vikings have languished in utter NFL obscurity, lacking any significant achievement for nearly 60 years.
    They’ve basically been a complete and abject failure, and should be quite the embarrassment for most of their fans.
    This is why circus music is piped into the Viking’s practice facilities on a continual loop, and quite probably always will.

  3. Miss the days of the Cheese League when the Bears, Chiefs, Saints and Vikings all took camp in Wisconsin.
