A pair of fu­ture Hall of Fame quar­ter­backs are on dis­play tonight in the Big Easy, where Drew Brees and the New Or­leans Saints de­fend home turf from Aaron Rodgers and the Green Bay Pack­ers. Amid talk of him be­ing in de­cline, Rodgers came up big in Week 1 against the Vik­ings, com­plet­ing 32 of 44 passes for 364 yards and four touch­downs in a 43-34 vic­tory. Brees was less spec­tac­u­lar but mis­take-free in the Saints’ sea­son-opener against the Bucs, go­ing 18-for-30 for 160 yards and two TDs in a 34-23 New Or­leans win.

Chris Rock heads the cast as Loy Can­non, head of a crime syn­di­cate made up largely of black mi­grants flee­ing the Jim Crow South of the era. Ja­son Schwartz­man, Ben Whishaw, Ti­mothy Olyphant, Uzo Aduba, Jack Hus­ton and Glynn Tur­man also star.
