Thurday night features two teams that should be in the playoff picture in 2012.  The Packers and the Chargers start their journey to Super Bowl XLVII tonight.    


Packers: After a disappointing exit from last season's playoffs, they will have their first look at the field as they ramp up for another run at the Super Bowl in 2012. Keep an eye out for rookie DE Nick Perry as he uses this preseason to emerge as a key pass-rusher.

 

Chargers: 2011 was not good to the "Bolts" as they missed the playoffs.  The Chargers will be searching for a standout WR during the preseason so look for Malcom Floyd and Vincent Brown to step up along with newcomers, Eddie Royal and Robert Meachem.

 

Don't miss the first game of the preseason for the Packers and the Chargers on Thursday at 8 PM ET on ESPN.
