Predicting every game on the Packers’ 2022 regular season schedule.

Here we go. The Green Bay Packers‘ 2022 schedule has finally been released, so it’s time to make way-too-early game-by-game predictions.

It should be an interesting season for the Packers. They head to London for a Week 5 matchup against the New York Giants, but still get eight games at Lambeau Field.

Green Bay hosts the Los Angeles Rams, Dallas Cowboys, and Tennessee Titans this season, and visits the Tampa Bay Buccaneers and Buffalo Bills. Some huge games to look forward to.

Let’s get into the game-by-game predictions, starting with the season opener.

Week 1: at Minnesota Vikings

U.S. Bank Stadium is a tough place to play. Especially in the season opener.

While the Packers won there in back-to-back seasons in 2019 and 2020, they are 2-4 overall in the Minnesota Vikings’ new stadium.

It can be a hostile environment for visiting teams, especially in divisional games. One of the Packers’ two victories in this stadium came with no fans in attendance in 2020.

Last season, they were beaten in a 34-31 thriller.

It should be a fascinating matchup this time around.

Joe Barry’s defense will be much improved. Green Bay’s secondary can be among the best in the league when healthy. It will be seriously tested against Minnesota’s wide receiver combo of Justin Jefferson and Adam Thielen.

This offseason, Minnesota has improved its roster and could bounce back into playoff contention.

The Vikings allowed the Packers to trade up with them in the draft, a pick Green Bay used to select wide receiver Christian Watson. It sure would be fun to watch Watson score a walk-off touchdown here.

However, Green Bay’s record at U.S. Bank Stadium scares me. It’s not easy to go there and win.

Against an improved Vikings team, the Packers fail to pick up the victory. Like last season, it will be close, but Minnesota gets the all-important divisional win.

Prediction: Minnesota 27, Green Bay 24 (0-1)
