1 - Here's what happened the last time Tre'Davious White played in Lambeau

Green Bay's Lambeau Field is a stadium that many kids dream about playing in growing up.

Some of the best players to ever lace up a pair of cleats have played in the historic stadium. Doing the "Lambeau Leap" is a bucket-list item for many NFL players. When the Bills take on the Packers in Week 4, a number of the team's young players will experience a historic first - their first time playing in Lambeau Field.

Buffalo cornerback Tre'Davious White, however, is no stranger to Lambeau. In fact, the last time he played in the stadium, he made a few impact plays.

White and the LSU Tigers took on the Wisconsin Badgers at Lambeau Field in the 2016 season. Although the Tigers lost the game, White was a menace, totaling four tackles. White also intercepted a pass on the day, taking it to the end zone for the first pick six of his college career. He also recovered a fumble.

White will look to replicate his strong Lambeau performance when the Bills take on Green Bay this weekend. The 23-year-old is coming off of a Week 3 outing in which he limited star Vikings wideout Stefon Diggs to just four receptions for 17 yards.

2 - Matt Milano 'looks up' to this Packers safety

Matt Milano is emerging as one of the best young linebackers in the NFL.

The second-year man out of Boston College is coming off of a Week 3 outing in which he recorded eight tackles, one sack and one interception. What's astonishing about Milano's game is that he's relatively new to the linebacker position. He played safety throughout high school, transitioning to linebacker in college. While playing at Dr. Phillips High School in Orlando, FL, Milano shared a defensive backfield with Green Bay safety Ha Ha Clinton-Dix.

The two will face off against each other for the first time as professionals when the Packers host the Bills in Week 4. Milano and Clinton-Dix still have a close relationship.

"Very close," Milano said. "That was my guy growing up. We were always hanging out together since we were super young, Pop Warner. Great guy. Great guy in the league. Somebody who I look up to, who I've looked up to my whole life, and now we're playing against each other."

Clinton-Dix was a five-star recruit coming out of high school. Milano looked to Clinton-Dix for methods to improve his game, something he is still doing today.

"The way he played, he was unreal back in the day, still unreal now," Milano said. "Just seeing that growing up, you know, he was always that one kid that you knew he was going to make it to the league no matter what. There's always that one guy, and it was definitely him. Definitely look up to him, great guy."

3 - CBS analysts see similarities between Allen, Drew Brees

On the surface, Josh Allen and Drew Brees don't have all that much in common.

Allen is the prototypical franchise quarterback. He's 6-foot-5, he's incredibly athletic, and although he's just a rookie, his arm is already one of the league's strongest.

Not fitting the "prototypical franchise quarterback" mold is something that Brees has dealt with throughout his entire career. Standing at just 6-feet tall, Brees has been called "undersized" since he was in college. Though he has a strong arm, Brees is more well known for his accuracy and decision making. He's completed more than 70 percent of his passes in each of the past two seasons, and through the first three games of the 2018 season, his completion percentage sits at 80.6 percent.

Though Allen and Brees aren't all that similar to each other on the field, a few CBS analysts fell as though the rookie could learn a thing or two from the 39-year-old. Phil Simms sees some similarities between the two quarterbacks, and he thinks that Brees could serve as a great mentor to Allen.

"I would take Drew Brees and put him up in Buffalo with Josh Allen," Simms said. "Drew Brees runs a very sophisticated offense. I think they would be a good match-up."

Analyst Steve Beuerlein thinks that Allen's ceiling is incredibly high, and he feels as though learning from Brees could allow the 22-year-old to maximize his potential.

"Josh Allen has the highest upside of all these first-year quarterbacks," Beuerlein said. "He would benefit tremendously from a few years under Drew Brees, who knows how to prepare and extend his career. I think he's an absolute perfect mentor for a guy like Josh Allen."
