The Green Bay Packers' 2023 NFL schedule will feature 17 regular-season games and three preseason games. It is highlighted by five prime-time contests (subject to flexible scheduling) on the original schedule for the 10th straight year (2014-23).
The Packers will open the season at the Chicago Bears, marking the fifth straight year and the ninth time in the last 11 seasons that Green Bay has started the season on the road. Green Bay is the only team in the NFL to open the season on the road each of the last five years (2019-23). It is also the fourth time in the last five years that the Packers have opened the season on the road against a division opponent.
Week 2 sees Green Bay traveling to take on the Atlanta Falcons, marking the first time since 2016 that the Packers have opened the season with back-to-back road contests. Green Bay will have its home opener at Lambeau Field in Week 3 against the New Orleans Saints.
The Packers stay at home for a short week to host the Detroit Lions on a Thursday for the first time. Week 5 has the Packers visiting Las Vegas for the first time to play the Raiders on Monday Night Football. It marks the 31st straight season (1992-2023) that Green Bay will play on MNF. The Packers will be on the bye the next week, marking the first Week 6 bye for Green Bay since 2006.
After the bye week, the Packers travel back out west to face the Denver Broncos. It is the first time since 2011 that Green Bay will play road games on each side of the bye week. In Week 8, the Packers will host Minnesota in the first of four scheduled noon (CT) games in a row, with three of them at home. In Week 9, Lambeau Field will welcome the Los Angeles Rams, marking the first time the Rams have played in Green Bay in three consecutive seasons. After a trip to play the Pittsburgh Steelers in Week 10, the Packers return home to take on the Los Angeles Chargers in Week 11.
Week 12 will be another short week for the Packers as they will play at the Lions on Thanksgiving. It is the first time Green Bay has played on the holiday since they hosted the Bears in 2015 and the first time at Detroit since 2013. According to the Elias Sports Bureau, the two Thursday games against Detroit mark just the second time that two teams have squared off multiple times on a Thursday in the same season (1926 Chicago Bears/Chicago Cardinals).
The month of December starts with the first of three prime-time matchups for Green Bay, which would be the most played by the Packers in a single season in the month of December. After the Packers host the Kansas City Chiefs on Sunday night in Week 13, they will travel to take on the New York Giants on MNF in Week 14. It is just the second time (2019) that Green Bay has multiple Thursday games and multiple Monday games. In Week 15, the Packers return to Lambeau to play Tampa Bay in what is the second-latest visit by the Buccaneers (Week 17 in 2000).
After two straight seasons of playing on Christmas, Green Bay visits the Carolina Panthers in Week 16 on Christmas Eve. For the third straight season and the fourth time in the last five, the Packers will finish the regular season with back-to-back NFC North contests. They will travel a state over to take on the Vikings in a prime-time matchup on New Year's Eve in Week 17 and then return home to face the Bears in the season finale on either Jan. 6 or 7.
With the three-game preseason schedule implemented in 2021, the Packers will alternate between hosting one and two preseason games each year. This year, the Packers will open the preseason at the Cincinnati Bengals and then host two games, first against the New England Patriots and then versus the Seattle Seahawks to finish the preseason. Both home games will have a charitable aspect to them with one being the Packers Give Back Game and the other being the Play Football Game.
