going to be the huge difference in this offense. but you could tell how much aaron wanted to get him going. and they did got the touchdown and made some plays. >> reporter: of course, though, the biggest question mark of them all is not between jordy nelson and aaron rodgers, it's how are things going to go in this new and, yes, you have to admit, beautiful stadium. the banner they hang tonight won't be so beautiful. wanted to give you a quick glimpse of what the stadium looks like, a another big question mark, too, the noise. it's very quiet and soothing. it's not going to be that way during the game. that will be answered shortly. but, for now, lance, thank you for your report. and at the new u.s. bank stadium, elise menaker, today's tmj4. >> football night in america kicks off right after live at 5:00, and the packers-vikings game begins at 7:30. local news now, look at this

?? it's game day for the green bay pa to 2 and 0 on sunday night football. it won't be easy with the home team opening up their new billion dollar stadium. for more, we kick it out to lance allan, big game for the pack tonight. >> reporter: no doubt about it, rod. this rivalry is hot. we bring in the packers larry mccarren. you were part of a lot of those games in the dome. this place is louder. what do they do with the silent count, the hand signals?
the packers practice culture. and i'm talking going back to otas, they work with noise all the time. the other thing, the silent count is kind of a misnomer. aaron rodgers will give j.c. tretter a signal he's ready for the ball. and at some point j.c. says, ready, go. the guys next to them can hear. not a big mystery. that's how the whole thing works. >> i fighting over the same piece of real estate. >> absolutely. and this should be as far as speed of the game and intensity of playoff-type football game. because, as you mentioned, of course, the green bay packers, everybody looks at them as a contender. and the vikings feel they are a contender. i think proof is what they did to acquire sam bradford, you give up a number 1 and a number 4 for a guy coming in for just a
>> the final thing, it all starts and end with adrian peterson. can they do it again? >> let's hope so, lance. three-five, a carry total, both games last year, and the packers did it by being fundamentally sound, gap integrity, and all that boring stuff, and playing fast. adrian peterson is out for revenge. last week, 19 the great adrian peterson. he wants to put on a show in the opening at u.s. bank stadium. >> keep wayne on radio. >> elise, over to you. >> i always like what larry mccarren has to say, my favorite quote of the weekend came last night at the packers pep rally from jim carter. he said he was asked about what
win. he said we have aaron rodgers, forget about it, it's over. it's done. he's like king. but i think that really describes the stark contrast. you have sam bradford, expected to make tonight the new team in the new stadium, don't count out shawn hill. you have aaron rodgers who barely needs to preseason...mike zimmer knows the key is going to be stopping aaron rodgers. >> you've had some success depending aaron rodgers. what does the key do you think, what do you have to do to not stop him, but contain him? >> i don't know how much success i've had against him. he's pretty darn good. he's smart, he's tough, he's competitive. he sees everything. he can throw from anywhere, obviously, he can scramble and get out of the pocket.
and everybody thinks how fun it is, it is really a challenge. >> reporter: actually, we're going to get a shot right now. we just noticed sam bradford over my shoulder. he is just in shorts and a sweatshirt now. talk has been that he will be the one making the start tonight for his new team, that being the vikings. the so we will see what will happen here shortly. but, for now, rod, i'm going to toss it back to you in the studio live at u.s. stadium, elise menaker, today's tmj4. >> we'll see you both in the next half hour. let's move to the nfl where the lions were hosting the titans in motown. fourth quarter, the lions up 15-10. marcus mariota is going to hit johnson. the titans beat the lions 16-15. the brewers wrapping up their series against the cubs. starting pitcher wily peralta,
