Now that we know the Green Bay Packers’ regular season schedule, it’s time to make some predictions.
Football is coming. The 2018 NFL Draft is just a week away, and now the schedule has been set for the new season. Now that the Green Bay Packers’ games have dates and times, let’s have some fun and make some way-too-early game-by-game predictions.
As long as Aaron Rodgers stays healthy, the Packers will be in good shape and should make a serious run for the playoffs. Making it out of the NFC North won’t be easy, though. The Minnesota Vikings came within a game of the Super Bowl last year, and have won the division twice in the past three seasons. They’ve now added Kirk Cousins to the roster, which could make them even better in 2018.
For a long time we’ve known the opponents the Packers will face this season, but we now know the order of the games. And that makes a huge difference. Every year the schedule presents a new set of challenges, from consecutive road games to a run of divisional showdowns.
To celebrate the announcement of the Packers’ regular season schedule, I’ve put together my early predictions for the new season. Let’s go week-by-week through each game on Green Bay’s schedule. How many wins will Mike McCarthy’s team finish on?
