The Green Bay Packers are looking to bounce back from a disappointing 2017 campaign. Here are five games that will define their 2018 season.
For every team in the NFL, the schedule is a very critical piece of information that may determine a team’s success or failure. Depending on who you play at what time (if they’re on a winning or losing streak) and where you play them can make all the difference in the world. And that’s true for the Green Bay Packers in 2018 as well.
On paper, Green Bay has one of the more difficult schedules based on last year’s win percentage. Of course, in the NFL, that all changes dramatically from one year to the next. But as of now, the Packers have multiple daunting games against the likes of the Minnesota Vikings, Los Angeles Rams, New England Patriots and Atlanta Falcons. It appears one of the only teams they missed in the Philadelphia Eagles.
The Packers begin their year with consecutive home games against division rivals before hitting the road. They also have a nice Week 7 bye that comes almost right in the middle of the season. Unfortunately, following the bye, things get extremely difficult from Weeks 8-12. The Packers might be hard-pressed to go 2-3 during that stretch.
Fortunately, things ease up the last three weeks of the year. Even though everything could change between now and then, let’s take a look at five games that will define the Packers’ season in 2018.
