A pair of games against the No. 1 overall pick

The Packers play the Bears twice every season. There will be a new wrinkle in the rivalry this season though, as the Bears have a new franchise quarterback. Chicago selected Caleb Williams with the No. 1 overall pick in the '24 Draft, and the Packers will get to see him up close and personal twice next season -- and every season after that as long as he's a member of the Bears.

Prior to his selection, the Bears traded incumbent quarterback Justin Fields to the Steelers, so the expectation is that Williams will take over as the starter from Day 1. Williams became the third top overall pick in Bears history, and the hopes in Chicago are sky-high for the young quarterback.

Games against playoff teams

Of Green Bay's 17 regular season games in 2024, seven will come against playoff teams from last season. Those games will be against the 49ers, Philadelphia Eagles, Los Angeles Rams, Houston Texans, Detroit Lions (twice) and Miami Dolphins.

Green Bay's remaining ten tilts will come against teams that didn't qualify for postseason play last season. But, the packers can't afford to overlook any of those teams, as all have aimed to improve over the offseason. Overall, Green Bay's 2024 opponents had a combined record of 152-137 last season.
