The Packers will build on last season’s success in 2020.

After an unusual offseason, the return of football is almost here. It could be quite a different season to normal for the Green Bay Packers, who won’t have fans in attendance for at least the first two games of the season due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

Head coach Matt LaFleur guided the Packers to a lot of success in his first season. Green Bay regained the NFC North title, sweeping its division rivals on the way to a 13-3 regular-season record, before advancing to the NFC Championship Game. A disappointing finish to the year, but a great first season for LaFleur nonetheless.

The Packers didn’t exactly go all-in this offseason, instead looking to the future by drafting quarterback Jordan Love in the first round.

The Packers’ preparations for the new season are underway, with their first practice at training camp set for next weekend.

Ahead of the new season, I’ve predicted every regular season game around the league and have calculated the division standings. I then predicted every playoff game all the way to Super Bowl LV.

Will the Packers build on last year’s success and win the NFC North? How far could they go in the playoffs? Here are my predictions for the 2020 season, starting with the division standings.
