I see the Packers going 11-5 in 2017, a one-game improvement from their 2016 record. We’re looking at yet another NFC North crown in the coming season.
Green Bay shouldn’t have much trouble sweeping their home divisional games, but it’s unlikely the Packers sweep all six games against the Bears, Lions and Vikings. They’ll likely stumble at least once, maybe at Detroit, to go 5-1 in the division.
Their non-divisional schedule doesn’t seem quite so rosy, with home tilts against Drew Brees and the Saints and Jameis Winston and the Bucs, as well as the Ravens, Bengals and Seahawks. Green Bay also faces some stiff tests on the road at Dallas, at Pittsburgh and at Atlanta.
I see likely losses at Atlanta and at Dallas along with tough games at the Steelers and home against Seattle, plus a matchup with a sneaky-good Tampa Bay team. With the Packers’ issues on defense, it wouldn’t be a surprise to see a loss against any one of those squads.
