Green Bay Packers 2017 schedule release: Predicting the Packers’ final season record
The 2017 NFL season is right around the corner and the Green Bay Packers will have their hands full with a challenging schedule. Other than playing their divisional foes, the Packers will face the NFC South Division, AFC North Division, Dallas Cowboys and Seattle Seahawks.
Starting in the division, the Packers should be able to cruise. There are way too many questions surrounding the Chicago Bears and their young team, the Minnesota Vikings don’t know if Teddy Bridgewater will be able to play again and the only threat to the Packers are the Detroit Lions, who have improved without Calvin Johnson.
Moving to the NFC South, the Packers will get their revenge against the Atlanta Falcons after last season’s thumping in the NFC Championship Game, the Carolina Panthers will not be as bad as they were and give the Packers their biggest challenge and both the New Orleans Saints and the Tampa Bay Buccaneers will struggle playing in Lambeau.
Onto the AFC North, the Packers will slip up against the Pittsburgh Steelers and take advantage of the inconsistency throughout the rest of that division.
Finally, there last two NFC match-ups against the Cowboys and Seahawks. The Cowboys will seek vengeance against the Packers after last year’s playoff thrashing and probably win. But, the Seahawks will continue to struggle away from home and choke in Packers News once again. With all that being said, the Packers will finish the regular season 12-4.
