The Green Bay Packers had a joint practice with the New England Patriots over the last couple of days and will have another preseason game against each other on Saturday, Aug. 19.
Watson really started to show his talent by the end of last season, how many TDs will these two connect for this year?

It appears as if they are developing chemistry with one another throughout training camp. They had chemistry with each other for the one game last season against the Philadelphia Eagles when Aaron Rodgers was pulled from the game due to injury.
Will Jordan Love and Christian Watson be the new Aaron Rodgers and Davante Adams connection for the Packers this season?
Well, for starters, Jordan Love will not be the quarterback that Aaron Rodgers was. Rodgers was one of the greatest quarterbacks of this generation, and many people are just hoping that Love can be average and not make many mistakes and make the easy throws.
Christian Watson has a long way to go to be considered like an elite wide receiver Davante Adams currently is. Still, Watson is the No. 1 wide receiver on the Green Bay Packers depth chart. Watson got better as the season progressed, and fans hope it can carry into year two.
He caught 41 passes for 611 yards receiving and seven touchdowns last season. Christian Watson averaged 14.9 yards per catch.
Jordan Love and Christian Watson Must Connect Early On
Throughout the first month of the 2023 NFL regular season, it will be important for Jordan Love and Christian Watson to connect early on. The first four games on the schedule are against the Chicago Bears, the Atlanta Falcons, the New Orleans Saints and the Detroit Lions.
Two of those games are really important because they are NFC North games. However, their defenses are not great, except for maybe the Saints.
Jordan Love and Christian Watson don’t need to be the next Aaron Rodgers and Davante Adams. That’s just an unreasonable expectation. They just need to be themselves and win football games any way they can for the Green Bay Packers franchise.
