Week 2: vs. Detroit Lions

Date: Monday, Sept. 20

Time: 7:15 p.m. CT


In the Packers’ first primetime game of the season, and home opener, they take on the rebuilding Lions. This will be the first time Lambeau Field has been filled with fans since the 2019 playoff victory over the Seattle Seahawks. Lambeau will be rocking, and so will the Packers.

Green Bay 38, Detroit 17 (2-0)

Week 3: at San Francisco 49ers

Date: Sunday, Sept. 26

Time: 7:20 p.m. CT


After playing an injury-hit 49ers team a year ago, we could see a completely different game on Sunday Night Football. The Packers have bad memories at Levi’s Stadium. Unfortunately, this could be another to add to the list.

San Francisco 27, Green Bay 21 (2-1)

Week 4: vs. Pittsburgh Steelers

Date: Sunday, Oct. 3

Time: 3:25 p.m. CT


The last time the Steelers played in the regular season at Lambeau Field, Matt Flynn almost led the Packers to a heroic last-second victory in the snow. In early October, the conditions will be a little different. Aaron Rodgers has had a broken collarbone the past two times these teams have met. He hasn’t played Pittsburgh since the Super Bowl in 2010. This W has been a long time coming.

Green Bay 30, Pittsburgh 20 (3-1)

Week 5: at Cincinnati Bengals

Date: Sunday, Oct. 10

Time: 12 p.m. CT


The Bengals are building for the future with second-year quarterback Joe Burrow, but they’re still a long way off. Even on the road, the Packers should be too good.

Green Bay 32, Cincinnati 24 (4-1)
