The Green Bay Packers’ 2019 schedule came out last week Wednesday. After a disappointing season last year, the Packers will be looking to redeem themselves in 2019-2020. Green Bay was 6-9-1 last season, this was the worst record for a Packers team since 2008 when Aaron Rodgers was in his first full season as a starter. I’ll be honest, around game 12 of last year, I gave up on the Packers. However, with the new additions to the team, I have a positive outlook on 2019. Green Bay has talent on both sides of the ball in Aaron Rodgers, Davante Adams, Aaron Jones, Jimmy Graham, Jaire Alexander, Za’Darius Smith, and Blake Martinez. They have a new coach in Matt LaFleur. A new system. A new attitude on Aaron Rodgers and Green Bay seems poised for a rebirth in the upcoming season.

According to NFL.com, the Packers are tied for the 14th hardest schedule next season. Right in the middle, I’ll take it. When I look through the games, these are the matchups that fans should look forward to the most.


Opener 9/5 @ Chicago

On September 5th, Green Bay will be opening their season at Soldier Field in Chicago. They will be suiting up against the defending NFC North Champions. The first game is important, the players are buzzing and this is where teams set the tone for their season. Green Bay was 1-1 against Chicago last year in two grind-it-out games. Don’t expect anything different from this one. Right away, the Packers will need to find a way to contain edge rusher, Khalil Mack. Last year Mack had 9 tackles, 3.5 sacks, an interception, a forced fumble, a fumble recovery, and a touchdown against the Packers. He had more sacks in 2 games than both Clay Matthews and Nick Perry had all of last season. People will be counting down the days until the season opener and Packer fans should not miss this one.


9/15 vs. Minnesota (First Home Game)

The Packers will play their first home game on September 15th versus the hated Minnesota Vikings. It will be the first home game so the Lambeau faithful will be out in huge numbers. Green Bay was 0-1-1 against the Vikings last year. They were outgained 896 yards to 605 against the Kirk Cousins’ led offense. Speaking of Cousins’, he played like an MVP against the Packers in 2018. In 2 games, he threw for 767 yards and 7 touchdowns. Those are the numbers Aaron Rodgers should be putting up, not Captain Kirk. Hopefully Green Bay has better luck against Minnesota this year than last.

10/6 @ Dallas

Since Green Bay won the Super Bowl in 2010, the debate has been going on. Who is America’s team? Is it the Green Bay Packers or the Dallas Cowboys? Let’s just say, whoever wins this game on October 6th, has the rights to the America’s team title. Last season, the Cowboys won the NFC East with a 10-6 record…this game will be no walk in the park. The game in Dallas will be Green Bay’s 5th of the season so it will be a good indicator where the Packers are as a team moving forward. Dallas has a handful of playmakers on offense in Dak Prescott, Ezekiel Elliott, and Amari Cooper. On defense, they have Leighton Vander Esch, Demarcus Lawrence, and Byron Jones. Green Bay will have to limit big plays and turnovers if they want to beat the Cowboys.

10/27 @ KC

Three weeks after the Dallas game, Green Bay will be going up against last year’s MVP, Patrick Mahomes. Mahomes led his Chiefs to a 12-4 record while throwing for 5,097 yards and 50 touchdowns in 2018. He is on the verge of passing Aaron Rodgers as the most talented quarterback in the league. This game will be a tough matchup for Green Bay but an exciting game nonetheless. Packers versus Chiefs has all the makings of a game that will end 42-35 with incredible performances from both quarterbacks.

12/15 vs Chicago

This isn’t the most exciting storyline but it is a storyline, on December 15th, former Green Bay Pro-Bowler, Ha Ha Clinton-Dix will return to Green Bay for the first time. Also, this will be Green Bay’s 3rd to last game of the season and hopefully, they will be in the middle of a playoff push. This game could prove pivotal in deciding if the Packers make the playoffs, or even better, win the NFC North.
