The NFL has set its game plans for the Green Bay Packers, and it will include a total of five prime time games.
Assuming the coronavirus pandemic allows, the Packers will begin their regular season against the Minnesota Vikings on the road – a change for them, as they traditionally play Minnesota early on in the season at Lambeau Field.
It ends in Chicago on January 3 – the first time in four years that the Packers will not play the Detroit Lions in the season finale. However, they have played divisional games to end the last 10 seasons, as is now NFL tradition.
Prime time games include September 27 at New Orleans, October 5 vs. Atlanta, November 5 at San Francisco, November 29 vs. Chicago and December 27 vs. Tennessee.
In total, the Packers have seven games against playoff teams: Houston, Minnesota (2), New Orleans, Philadelphia, San Francisco and Tennessee.
And yes, they play Tom Brady and Tampa Bay in October.
Of course, there is no guarantee that fans will be in the stadium for games, or that the games will even come off as scheduled due to COVID-19.
The NFL has considered options for delaying the start of the regular season until October and holding the Super Bowl later in February than the scheduled date of February 7. Therefore, all these games are subject to change for date, time, TV network, etc.
