    The NFL will release the 2016 regular season tonight at 7pm CT.

    With the Vikings opening their brand new stadium I expect the Packers to play there either Sunday or Monday night in week 1.

    Packers opened on the road (Chicago) last season. I'd like to see a home opener this year.

    imagine if they lost to another heart breaker like in the recent playoffs? LOL that new stadium would be cursed.

    We get 3 homes games in a row don't we? Usually teams that start off with two away's get 3 in a row at home at some point. So it evens out.

    As long as the season isn't lost by December, home games in Dec. at Lambeau are always welcome.

    That second game will be a tough one, Packers get to "help" the Vikings open up US Bank Stadium for the first game played there.

    That looks like a tough schedule. Week 4 BYE doesn't look too bad since they have 5 pre season games and will have basically 4 away games since their last 2 pre season games are away and start the season away the first 2 games

    The timing of the schedule maybe tough, but overall I think our opponents and the
    home and away mix isn't too difficult.

    That's why I edited or deleted my posts that predicted the schedule.
