Here’s what we find curious and/or interesting about the team’s schedule.
Three of the Green Bay Packers first four games are at home, which bodes well for a fast start. However, they then face three in a row on the road. Fortunately, two of those teams are the Colts and Rams.
The Packers don’t play on Thanksgiving this year, which sucks for Thanksgiving.
The Packers have five prime time games, but only one on Monday night. That game? Against Matt Flynn and the Seattle Seahawks.
The Packers only divisional game before November is their week two matchup with the Bears.
Four of the team’s last five games are divisional games, but for some strange reason, Tennessee got thrown in on the second-to-last week. What happened to a team’s final two games of the year being against division opponents?
Monty McMahon is one of the founders of Total Packers. He is probably the most famous graduate of UW-Oshkosh next to Jim Gantner.
