13. Tampa Bay Buccaneers

Just a few years ago, Aaron Rodgers' Green Bay Packers hosted Tom Brady's Tampa Bay Buccaneers in the NFC title game. Brady retired this offseason and Rodgers got traded, sending both teams into rebuild.

We'll get to see Jordan Love vs. Baker Mayfield, instead. Outside of the quarterback battle, the Packers have the better roster of the two and will be favorites to beat the Buccaneers at Lambeau Field.

12. Atlanta Falcons

It's hard to believe the Atlanta Falcons didn't do more in the draft to fix a defense that ranked No. 25 against the pass last season. They surprisingly selected Texas running back Bijan Robinson with the No. 8 overall pick. Atlanta had other needs at edge rusher and cornerback.

The Falcons could have an excellent offense this season, but even that's not a guarantee. Jordan Love and the new-look Packers offense will have an opportunity to score points against the Falcons' defense.

11. Denver Broncos

Will Russell Wilson's second season with the Denver Broncos go better than the first? Sean Payton replaces former Packers offensive coordinator Nathaniel Hackett as the Broncos' head coach. Can Payton help Wilson get back to his best?

Denver has surrounded Wilson with plenty of receiving talent, while the Broncos' defense ranked No. 7 in the NFL last season. This is also a road game for the Packers, making it more challenging.
