If you’re ready for the release of the NFL regular season schedule, fear not, it’s on its way as league officials announced this afternoon that the schedule will now become public property on Thursday, April 18. It was earlier announced it would be available April 16.

That includes the 16-game schedule for the Green Bay Packers.

We already know the preseason schedule for the Packers and the rest of the league – we already know the Packers will play the Seattle Seahawks in primetime the third week of the early-season games. Now, that should be fun. We can’t wait to see what signage the fans come up to show off at that game.

But the next step – the regular season – is on the horizon as we all wonder when the Packers will be playing NFC North Division rivals Minnesota Vikings, Detroit Lions and Chicago Bears.

But even more so, we’re excited about the home games against the Eagles, Falcons, Browns and Redskins … will the Packers face at least a couple of those teams in December at Lambeau?

And those road games against the Super Bowl XLVII finalists Ravens and 49ers … at what point in the season will the Packers face them?

Those are just some of the questions that pop up immediately.

Unfortunately we now have to wait two more days to find out.
