The Green Bay Packers’ opponents for 2017 are as follows:

  • HOME: Chicago Bears, Detroit Lions, Minnesota Vikings, New Orleans Saints, Tampa Bay Buccaneers, Baltimore Ravens, Cincinnati Bengals, Seattle Seahawks
    Bears   Lions   Vikings New Orleans Saints Tampa Bay Buccaneers Baltimore Ravens Cincinnati Bengals Seattle Seahawks

  • AWAY: Chicago Bears, Detroit Lions, Minnesota Vikings, Atlanta Falcons, Carolina Panthers, Cleveland Browns, Pittsburgh Steelers, Dallas Cowboys
    Bears   Lions   Vikings Falcons Carolina Panthers Cleveland Browns Pittsburgh Steelers Dallas Cowboys       

The scheduling formula implemented in 2002 with realignment guarantees that all teams play each other on a regular, rotating basis.

Under the formula, every team plays 16 games as follows:

  • Home and away against its three division opponents (6 games).
  • The four teams from another division within its conference on a rotating three-year cycle (4 games).
  • The four teams from a division in the other conference on a rotating four-year cycle (4 games).

Two intraconference games based on the prior year’s standings (2 games). These games match a first-place team against the first-place teams in the two same-conference divisions the team is not scheduled to play that season. The second-place, third-place, and fourth-place teams in a conference are matched in the same way each year.  

Beginning in 2010, a change was made to how teams are paired in the schedule rotation with the AFC and NFC West divisions.

The official 2017 schedule, with playing dates and times, will be announced in the spring.

NFL Kickoff 2017 Weekend will begin on Thursday night, September 7, and the regular season will conclude on Sunday, December 31.

Super Bowl LII at U.S. Bank Stadium in Minneapolis, Minnesota will be played on Sunday, February 4, 2018.
