Who will the Packers play in 2021?

With the regular season now complete, we know the Green Bay Packers‘ full list of opponents for the 2021 season.

It’s too early to make predictions or determine whether this is an “easy” schedule or a challenging one, but what we do know is that they will take on nine teams currently in the playoffs.

For now then, at least, the schedule looks to be a challenging one. As ever in the NFL, things change quickly. A game against the San Francisco 49ers looked to be a daunting one this year. It turned out not to be.

So, who will the Packers face in 2021? Here is their full list of opponents, according to the team’s official website.

Home: Bears, Lions, Vikings, Browns, Rams, Steelers, Seahawks, Washington

Away: Bears, Lions, Vikings, Cardinals, Ravens, Bengals, Saints, 49ers

All of Green Bay’s non-NFC North opponents at Lambeau Field made the playoffs this year. The Pittsburgh Steelers, Seattle Seahawks, and Washington Football Team were all division winners.

Road matchups with the Baltimore Ravens, New Orleans Saints, and 49ers stand out. It could be a bounce-back year for San Francisco.

While we won’t know until next season which of these teams will be contenders, the same goes for the Packers. Will the 2021 Packers be as good as this year’s team? Could they be even stronger?

If next year’s team performs at a level even almost as good as this year’s, they’ll be more than capable of winning most of their games again next season.

And given how many NFC playoff teams are on next year’s schedule, there’s a good chance we’ll see a playoff rematch or two next season.

For now, the Packers prepare for their divisional round game at Lambeau Field in two weeks. But we now know who they’ll be playing next season.
