How many primetime games will the Green Bay Packers play in 2023?

With Aaron Rodgers at quarterback, the Green Bay Packers would typically get picked for the maximum five primetime games each season. Rodgers now plays for the New York Jets, so where will that leave the Packers?

Green Bay has a huge fanbase, and the roster still has talent on both sides of the ball even without Rodgers, so it should remain a popular primetime pick. How popular? We shall soon find out.

Last season, the Packers were selected for five primetime games. They were flexed into another and also played a game in London and another on Christmas Day. They played in front of a national audience a lot.

We already know the Packers won't be playing internationally this season.

The NFL schedule will be released in full on Thursday. Before then, there will potentially be Packers games announced. Below, we will keep track of all of their primetime games as they are announced.
