The Green Bay Packers have released their full 2022 preseason schedule.

We now know the dates and times of each of the Green Bay Packers‘ preseason games this summer.

The Packers will play in three preseason games, one at Lambeau Field and two on the road.

Here is the Packers’ preseason schedule in full:

Green Bay Packers 2022 preseason schedule

  • Week 1: at San Francisco 49ers (Friday, Aug. 12 – 7:30 p.m. CT)
  • Week 2: vs. New Orleans Saints (Friday, Aug. 19 – 7 p.m. CT)
  • Week 3: at Kansas City Chiefs (Thursday, Aug. 25 – 7 p.m. CT)

Green Bay opens up the preseason on the road against the San Francisco 49ers. This game will be played on Friday, Aug. 12 at 7:30 p.m. CT.

The one preseason game at Lambeau Field will be played the following week against the New Orleans Saints. That game has a 7 p.m. CT kickoff on Friday, Aug. 19.

The Packers announced this week that they will also be hosting the Saints for joint practices that week. This is something head coach Matt LaFleur loves to do.

Green Bay has hosted joint practices during the preseason often under LaFleur.

The final preseason game will be played on the road versus the Kansas City Chiefs. It is another 7 p.m. CT kickoff on Thursday, Aug. 25.

Green Bay will then have over two weeks to prepare for its opening regular season game on the road against the Minnesota Vikings.

A benefit of the 17-game regular season is one fewer preseason contest. Three exhibition games are more than enough. It allows teams plenty of time to give players on the roster bubble opportunities, while also getting some reps for the starters.

LaFleur tends not to give starters many reps during the preseason. Don’t be surprised if we don’t see any preseason action from Aaron Rodgers, David Bakhtiari, Jaire Alexander, or any of the key starters.
