Carson Wentz grew up a die-hard fan of Brett Favre, but will be making his first trip to the stadium that the Hall of Fame quarterback called home for 16 years.
"Never been to Lambeau. It'll be a cool atmosphere. For some of these rookies, we're talking to Dane Evans and his first game action will be at Lambeau Field. That's pretty cool," Wentz said. "I'm excited to go up there and check it out as well."
