Packers' opponents and draft position set for 2019

Green Bay to face NFC East, AFC West; will select 12th in first round


GREEN BAY – The Packers now know their full list of opponents for the 2019 NFL season and will have the 12th and 30th overall picks in the 2019 NFL Draft.

The NFL's schedule rotation pits each division against another NFC and AFC division each season. NFC North teams will face each of the teams in the NFC East and AFC West in 2019. Along with the six in-division matchups, the Packers also will play two intraconference games determined by 2018 season standings.

Based on Green Bay's third-place finish in the NFC North, the last two teams to be locked into next year's slate were Carolina and San Francisco, based on their third-place finishes in the NFC South and NFC West, respectively.

Here's the full list of 2019 home/away opponents:

  • Home opponents: Philadelphia Eagles, Washington Redskins, Denver Broncos, Oakland Raiders, Carolina Panthers, Chicago Bears, Detroit Lions, Minnesota Vikings.
  • Road opponents: Dallas Cowboys, New York Giants, Kansas City Chiefs, Los Angeles Chargers, San Francisco 49ers, Chicago Bears, Detroit Lions, Minnesota Vikings.

Green Bay's 6-9-1 record also settled their draft position for 2019. The Packers will be picking 12th in the 2019 NFL Draft, in addition to owning an additional first-round pick acquired in a trade with the New Orleans Saints during Round One of the 2018 NFL Draft. With the Saints losing the NFC Championship, the Packers will also pick 30th in the first round.
