Here’s the complete list of teams the Green Bay Packers will face in 2020.

With the regular season complete, we now know the 16 opponents the Packers will face next season. The regular-season schedule won’t be released until some time in the spring, but we do know Green Bay’s home and away opponents for the new year.

The NFC North will be matched up against the NFC South this season, two games being played at home and two away. They will also take on each team from the AFC South for the first time in four years.

Where Green Bay’s opponents differ from the other NFC North teams is games against the NFC East and NFC West. As a result of winning the North, the Packers will face the champions of the other two divisions.

Here’s the complete list of opponents for the 2020 season:

Home games

  • Chicago Bears
  • Detroit Lions
  • Minnesota Vikings
  • Philadelphia Eagles
  • Atlanta Falcons
  • Jacksonville Jaguars
  • Carolina Panthers
  • Tennessee Titans

Road games

  • Chicago Bears
  • Detroit Lions
  • Minnesota Vikings
  • San Francisco 49ers
  • Tampa Bay Buccanneers
  • Indianapolis Colts
  • New Orleans Saints
  • Houston Texans

It’s impossible to know how good any of those teams will be in 2020, although the road games against the 49ers and Saints stand out. A lot can change between now and then, but writing this ahead of the playoffs, they would appear to be the toughest games on next season’s schedule.

Green Bay will play seven games against playoff teams from the 2019 season which, again, doesn’t mean as much as it may seem as it’ll be an entirely new season with different contenders. A year ago, few would’ve feared a road game against the 49ers. As it happened, the 49ers beat the Packers 37-8 en route to the NFC’s top seed.

One game to watch will be a matchup with the Titans, giving Matt LaFleur a chance to take on his previous team. He was the offensive coordinator in Tennessee in 2018 before becoming the Packers’ head coach last offseason.
