Week 12: Minnesota Vikings (Away – storyline above)

Week 13: Arizona Cardinals (Home)

Again the Packers return home after two consecutive road games to take on the Arizona Cardinals in Week 13.

This is the first time Arizona is playing in Lambeau since 2012, when the Packers won 31-17.

There is a ton of uncertainty surrounding the Cardinals this upcoming season. Who will be there quarterback? Odds are whoever is the Cardinals Week 1 starter will not be the same guy when they come to Green Bay.

Week 14: Atlanta Falcons (Home)

The Atlanta Falcons have had the Packers’ number as of late. They have won the last three matchups and were able to march up and down Green Bay’s defense.

However, things have been different when Atlanta travels on the road, specifically to Green Bay. They are winless in their last two trips.

Other than the NFC North divisional opponents, Atlanta has given Rodgers the most trouble in his NFL career. He hast lost four out of six matchups against this high-powered offense.

Most likely, both the Packers and Falcons will battling for the playoffs when this game comes around.

Week 15: Chicago Bears (Away – storyline above)

Week 16: New York Jets (Away)

The Packers’ final away game of the regular season is Week 16 against the New York Jets.

Newly signed defensive lineman Muhammad Wilkerson gets a shot at his former team. Wilkerson signed a one-year, $5 million contract with the Packers at the start of free agency.

Wilkerson will be playing extremely motivated for this matchup to prove the Jets made a mistake by releasing the veteran.
