Whew!…that’s no walk in the park. The Pack not only get the Super Bowl runner-up, the team that “smoked” them in the play-offs in week 1, but they also get the Super Bowl Champs in week 6. Both games are on the road.
The “let’s get healthy” Bye Week, is in week 4 which could cause a problem if injuries mount as the season progresses (first time since 1999).
The Packers for the FIRST time since entering the league (1921), their storied franchise, will NOT have back to back games on the road.
My prediction is that the Packers will be 11-5 on the season, what’s yours?
