2021 Green Bay Packers Schedule
Contrast that to the 2020 schedule. Green Bay played six games against teams that reached the playoffs. Its 16 games came against teams with a combined 109 wins. That's the fewest in the league.
Dates and times of the games in the future of Green Bay Packers have yet to be decided. Full Green Bay Packers schedule information is made available in mid-April 2021.
*Editor of Note: The Green Bay Packers will be matched up against the team who finished the prior season with the same placement from the division noted.

|The NFL is expected to add a 17th game next season as a way to drive up revenue. That 17th opponent will “be an interconference matchup based on divisional standings” from the previous season, and “on a rotating divisional basis.” That means the Packers would play one of the AFC’s other division champions: Buffalo (AFC East), Tennessee (AFC South) or Kansas City (AFC West). If the 17th game becomes a reality, that would be the 10th game against a playoff foe.|
2021 Green Bay Packers - Future Opponents
In addition to the usual rotation of six NFC North matchups, Green Bay is scheduled to host the Los Angeles Rams, Seattle, Pittsburgh, Cleveland and Washington at Lambeau Field, while traveling to face Arizona, San Francisco, Cincinnati, Baltimore and New Orleans.
The four AFC North matchups are part of the four-year cycle against the other conference, while the NFC West games are part of the three-year intraconference cycle.
The two other NFC games are decided by the prior year's standings, pitting the NFC North champion Packers against the first-place teams from the two same-conference divisions Green Bay won't play that season (vs. Washington, at New Orleans).
Packers President/CEO Mark Murphy also stated in his "Murphy Takes 5" column on Saturday that it's "likely" the NFL will move to 17 regular-season games and three preseason games next season.
The league has determined that 17th game would be an interconference game based on place in the standings the previous year, according to Murphy.
For Green Bay, that would mean playing the Kansas City Chiefs in an AFC West vs. NFC North matchup. The conferences would then alternate hosting the extra game, so all conference teams would have the same number of home games that year.
with the home-and-home series against the NFC North teams and matchups against the NFC West and AFC North. That’s 14 of the 16 games. The final two will be against the first-place finishers in the NFC East (Washington) and NFC South (New Orleans).
So, here is how it lays out:
Home: Chicago Bears, Detroit Lions, Minnesota Vikings, Washington Football Team, Los Angeles Rams, Seattle Seahawks, Cleveland Browns and Pittsburgh Steelers. The Seahawks (12-4), Steelers (12-4), Browns (11-5), Rams (10-6), Bears (8-8) and Washington (7-9) made the playoffs.
Away: Chicago Bears, Detroit Lions, Minnesota Vikings, New Orleans Saints, Arizona Cardinals, San Francisco 49ers, Baltimore Ravens and Cincinnati Bengals. The Saints (12-4), Ravens (11-5) and Bears (8-8) made the playoffs. Moreover, the 49ers (6-10) reached last year’s Super Bowl but couldn’t overcome a barrage of high-impact injuries this year.
Packers vs. Rams score
It began as a matchup in which the Los Angeles Rams went from underdog to a legit threat, but the Green Bay Packers kept throwing body blows en route to a 32-18 victory to stamp their ticket to the NFC Championship game for the second consecutive season and the third time since 2016. Aaron Rodgers had his offense cooking as usual on the opening drive of the first half, and even got his usual mental error from the opposing defense that awarded him a free play that put the Packers in the red zone.
The Packers await the winner of the New Orleans Saints versus the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, either setting up what will be a historic NFC postseason clash of NFL titans at the quarterback position.
