The Green Bay Packers are entering this 2015-16 NFL season as one of the Super Bowl favorites, as Aaron Rodgers continues to develop into the league’s best all-around quarterback. After last year’s heart-breaking NFC Championship game collapse, the Packers will look to regroup and get back into the Super Bowl. They certainly have the offensive firepower, led by Rodgers, Eddie Lacy, Jordy Nelson and Randall Cobb.
The path to redemption starts in the preseason, where Packers tickets are higher than most teams around the league. Fans will clamor to get into historic Lambeau Field even for an exhibition game. With secondary market ticket information provided by TiqIQ.com, below is a breakdown of prices and travel options for Packers preseason games.

The Packers have moved on from Brandon Bostick, as the fumble from the backup tight end that led to the Seahawks’ tying possession ultimately cost him his job. Through the NFL Draft, the Packers added first-round pick Damarious Randall, who will either play cornerback or safety, and Quinten Rollins in the second round, another cornerback.
