To celebrate the release of the Green Bay Packers’ 2016 schedule, here’s predictions for all 16 games on the cards.
The Green Bay Packers kickoff their 2016 campaign on the road to the Jacksonville Jaguars before visiting the Minnesota Vikings in their brand new stadium. Two roads games will challenge the Packers right out of the gates, as will having a bye week was early as Week 4.
How will Green Bay fare this season with what is the ‘easiest’ strength of schedule in the league? Let’s take a look through all 16 of the Packers’ games and make some way-too-early predictions.
Home games with the Seattle Seahawks, Indianapolis Colts and Dallas Cowboys will all test Mike McCarthy’s team, but neither is a game the Packers can’t win. Road games with the Atlanta Falcons, Tennessee Titans and Washington Redskins will also be challenging.

With that said, let’s begin our predictions starting with the season opener in sunny Florida against a rejuvenated Jaguars team.
