Take one look at the Green Bay Packers schedule, and it is surprisingly comfortable. There are challenges along the way, but it isn't as scary as in recent seasons. Even without Aaron Rodgers, it feels like there are many winnable games for the Packers.
There are also several must-see games. Matchups that could mean a lot. Others with rich history. They are the games to circle on the calendar.
Which games on this year's schedule are must-see?
5. Packers at Steelers (Week 10)
This is a classic matchup. It will also feel a bit different this season. The Packers are without Aaron Rodgers, and there's no Ben Roethlisberger for the Pittsburgh Steelers. This old rivalry begins a new chapter.
It should be a fun game, too. Mike Tomlin's teams are always tough to beat, and the Steelers absolutely nailed the draft. They strengthened both sides of the ball, adding Georgia tackle Broderick Jones and tight end Darnell Washington, Penn State cornerback Joey Porter Jr., and Wisconsin defensive tackle Keeanu Benton.
Both the Packers and Steelers could be surprise playoff contenders this season. They are being overlooked, but both teams have talent.
Packers-Steelers games are rarely boring. In some of the most recent meetings, we saw Matt Flynn and Brett Hundley almost upset the Steelers. Both were exciting games.
It could be another classic this season.
