Here’s the Packers full schedule for the 2021 NFL Season

The NFL released the Green Bay Packers schedule on May 12. We break it down, including a full list of games, prime time matchups, and strength of schedule.

The NFL announced the complete 2021 schedule on May 12, and the Green Bay Packers are officially set to kick off their 2021 season in New Orleans against the Saints at 4:25 PM. Their first divisional game will be in Week 2 on Monday Night Football against the Detroit Lions at home.

The Packers came just short of returning to the Super Bowl last season, falling to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in the NFC Championship Game. Green Bay was the No. 1 seed in the conference after finishing with a 13-3 record. It had been a relatively quiet offseason as the Packers re-signed star running back Aaron Jones, but things took a major turn with the Aaron Rodgers drama on draft day. His return to the team is the difference between being a Super Bowl contender and a fringe playoff team. Green Bay received some help on the defensive side of the ball with speedy corner Eric Stokes with the first round pick.

All times listed are Eastern.
