Thursday (5/11) is the day (night) that the NFL will release the 2023 Schedules for all 32 Teams. We already know the Packers opponents, as well as where their 17 games will be played.

Join us Thursday as we put together the leaked schedule. Has always been a fun day for some of us.

I have to be on the road for part of the day, so if someone else wants to volunteer to keep a running count on known games as they are leaked, go for it!


Here are the Packers 17 games/opponents to determine.


Home: Bears, Lions, Vikings, Chiefs, Chargers, Rams, Saints, Buccaneers

Away: Bears, Lions, Vikings, Falcons, Panthers, Broncos, Raiders, Giants, Steelers


Here are the 2023 strength of schedule rankings for each team (combined 2022 record of all 17 opponents, combined winning percentage).

Do you plan on editing the 1st post to reflect the schedule or is this just an unofficial leaked thread?
When the schedule is finalized, I can put it in the first post. Since I won't be able to check in much tomorrow, I was hoping someone else could keep track, as games are leaked. They can copy and paste what I have below.

Maybe because I grew up with my team losing all the time and they were always the sunday noon game, but I like those the best. Wake up, get some stuff done, sit down and watch a game.
Yeah we grew up watching games in the same generation! Mid 70’s to late 80’s :eek:

Not counting on maybe more than two national primetime games with Rodgers gone.

Assume primetime is Sun/Mon. 2 or 3 seems about right, but in 2008 (Rodgers 1st year) they had 4. Probably a Chi or Minn game early in the season, Pitt seems like it would be a good draw given the 2 franchises and then seems about time for a Det/GB Thanksgiving game.

Most of the others don't seem to have any juice to them.

I I also count the 325 p.m. Sunday afternoon games as prime time. I can watch the game at home without having to go to the bar to see it since it's on regular national television. Expecting a lot more noon games this year.

This seems almost unreal.
- Packers STILL get 5 Prime-time Night games?
- No 3-game away stretches in '23.
- Detroit/Chiefs to open the season and Detroit/Vikings to end the season means the NFL thinks Detroit is the NFC team to beat.

3 "easier" games to open the season, 4-1 at the bye, a rougher stretch in November/early December. Close-out the regular season with a 5 game win streak. I'll call it now, 10-8 (or better) and a playoff spot.

Opponent wise, it appears to be one of the easier schedules in recent memory. Starting with 2 road games is tough though, especially given a new starting QB.

I can see the Bear signs already. "We now own your Love"

I don't consider Thursday night games primetime since doesn't every team have to play on a Thursday?

At 1st I thought the Raiders one was an odd choice, but if LV had any say, Packer fans travel well so, probably trying to pull 15-20K tourists in for a full weekend and stay for the game Monday.

The others are backloaded to weeks 13-17 where they could be flexed out if the Packers are bad.

Wow. That’s an easy schedule. The 2 toughest games I see are both at Lambeau. Chiefs Chargers

I am going to go out on a limb here and say they will not go 10-8 in the regular season.

Opponents and for the most part locations have been known since the last game of last season.

Surprised the NFL didn't use the 17th game as TBD and then they schedule whatever they want to ensure storylines they want. Gooddell would probably throw a v1rg1n in a volcano to get a Jets / Packers matchup this year.

Easy is not the same. Last year's records for teams has a little carry over but not that much. The Saints coming to GB without a Drew Brees is not what it once was just as a Packer team going to Vegas without Aaron Rodgers is not the same. But stranger things have happened.
