Now that the leaks and rumors have been confirmed, we know the regular season path the Green Bay Packers will embark on this year.

 

We knew the opponents months ago and more recently found out the Green and Gold would be making a hop, skip and a jump across the pond for the first time in franchise history. Now, we’ve got the whole kit and kaboodal put together, so until we have real football news to talk about, let’s prognosticate, courtesy of some of our Game On Wisconsin writing staff

Final Records

Dan Kotnik – 14-3

Things I Like:

Ol’ Matty loves his late byes and boy was he granted his wish this year. The Packers play 3 out of the 4 remaining games after their Week 14 bye at Lambeau and all against division/conference rivals. If they play their cards right, that Christmas Day trip to Miami might be the last they have to make until February. They also don’t have to travel post-London, which kicks off a three-game stretch of less-than-challenging opponents.

Things I Don’t Like:

Divisional games inside the first four weeks should be canceled. The offense will most likely take a minute or two to really get into shape, so we probably see some hiccups early on against some tougher opponents. The only other true losses I see are under the lights in Buffalo (aka the World’s Biggest Tailgate) against arguably the best team in the league and on the heels of the bye week (again) against the defending champs.

Jacob Westendorf – 13-4

Things I Like:

First and foremost I like that they put the Eagles game in November. Those that have followed along kind of know my personal situation. My dad was an Eagles fan. He never got to go to the Linc. With my son due in September, I needed that game to be in November. It was.

 

I like that they got a late bye this year and can focus on getting healthy toward the end of the season and into the playoffs.

I LOVE that they got the Rams at Lambeau later in the season. I am of the belief that had the Packers not choked away the divisional round last year, they would have beaten the Rams by two scores en route to the Super Bowl. Alas, that did not happen.

Having a game in London isn’t my favorite thing, but the fact that they play the Giants and then the Jets in back-to-back weeks makes things easier to accept.

Things I Don’t Like:

Playing Tampa Bay in September after starting the season with two division games. Yes, I know the Packers have owned the Bears, but there will be some early season growing pains for this offense. The defense will need to be ready to roll.

I hate any game in Florida as long as Aaron Rodgers is the quarterback. The history there just isn’t good. Add in the Tom Brady farewell(?) tour and endless “GOAT” debates, It’ll be nauseating all week long.

Three road games in the middle of the year is going to be tough after being in London two weeks prior to that stretch.

Isaac Greig – 13-4

Things I Like:

The NFC North is weak yet again, though I dont expect the Packers’ token loss to come against the usual suspects.

Two of the three games against the remaining NFC divisional champs are at home. The Packers should win both of those games.

The AFC East is weak, even with the Jets and Dolphins potentially improving this past offseason.

What I like most is the Packers potentially carrying a 4-game win streak into the postseason.

Things I Don’t Like:

The Packers usually allow atleast one sneaky loss per year. I’ve got a couple on the books for them this season, with one of those coming against my choice to win the NFC East crown.

The other sneaky loss could come after a hard-fought game in Buffalo.

I dont like the Packers against the Bucs. But if it all goes according to plan, we’ll have our first Rodgers v Brady matchup.

Andrew Mertins – 12-5

Things I Like:

The Green Bay Packers 2022 schedule looks tougher than I think some (non-Packers fans) are describing it as.

The NFC North looks a little tougher this year, but I still think they get the job done. Their schedule after Week 4 vs. New England has a very favorable stretch.

I don’t see this team losing to either New York team or the Commanders.

The Green and Gold definitely lucked out with getting Dallas, Tennessee and LA all at home in the second half of the season.

Things I Don’t Like:

I hate playing Minnesota week one. We saw how terrible the team looked last season right off the bat. Minnesota could have their act together this year (key word is ‘could’) and I think they take the first game while Aaron tries to get comfortable with his new weapons.

Tom Brady. Not much else to say there.

I absolutely see the Christmas Day game going either direction. Miami is a hard team to read. But, I still don’t like Green Bay in those warm Florida games. Miami isn’t great by any standard, but they have some pieces that can make some plays.

I like 12-5 I think the wr room will take a few games to get on same page with Rodgers and may cause some struggles early and I’m not a fan of having shoot outs so unless the d steps up Dallas Tampa Buffalo Minnesota and rams will be tough match ups
