That’s right Packer Fans the NFL has released the schedules of all 32 teams, which means the Green Bay Packer road map to the post season is there as well. A few observations before we “Cheese Heads” put them at 16-0.
The Packers won’t be feeling any jet lag during their run to the post season since they won’t be playing any games west of Minneapolis this season. That game by the way, is the second game of the season for the Pack as they open up the Vikings new facility. It will be the first time since 1924 that Green Bay will have played their first two games of the season on the road.
The Packers are one of only 2 teams this season to have 3 consecutive road games, those games are in November. The NFL is probably making up for the four straight home games the Packers get to enjoy the month earlier, in October.
The Green and Gold will also supply your Christmas Eve entertainment between glasses of nog, and handfuls of fig when they host the Vikings. They will also supply your hang over entertainment with their game in Detroit on New Years Day.
The Packers also got dealt their bye week in week 4, which is always tough. In my opinion way too early in the season for any team.

I personally think it’s going to be a fun season, and if everyone stay healthy, which I know is impossible, but, you know what I mean…the Packer will go 12-4 and win the NFC North.
