Green Bay Packers, 2019 NFL Schedule

Green Bay Packers: Predicting each game on the 2019 NFL schedule

The Green Bay Packers will enter the 2019-20 NFL season looking for payback and to prove that their two-year slip is no real reason for concern. The NFC North has now become one of the toughest divisions in football and wins will be tough to come by. The question now is, is what happened the last two years a sign of things to come or can a slippage be blamed on injuries or have the Packers lost their grip?

Green Bay will face six playoffs teams this season. This will be a great measuring stick for where they want to be. On top of the NFC North, they will have to deal with the NFC East and AFC West. Where will they end up when the dust settles?

Here is the outcome of each game for the Green Bay Packers.

Week 1: Chicago Bears (Away)

After the Bears snuck up on the NFC North last season, the Packers will be out to show it was a fluke. The first game of the season will carry jitters but more so for the Bears. Even with Aaron Rodgers and the offense healthy, it may be a tough outing against the Bears stingy defense. With a chip on their shoulder, the Packers will find a way. Green Bay Win

Week 2: Minnesota Vikings (Home)

The home opener against another division rival should result in some intense play. With both teams missing the playoffs last season, this will begin their redemption year. The Vikings are stacked on offense but will the defense contain Rodgers? It doesn’t matter, the Packers defense won’t be able to stop Minnesota. Vikings Win

Week 3: Denver Broncos (Home)

Following two tough divisional games, the Packers will welcome Joe Flacco and the Broncos. Both QBs will put it in the air and test the opposition’s defense. In the end, Rodgers will hit Jimmy Graham for the game-clinching TD over Von Miller. Green Bay Win

Week 4: Philadelphia Eagles (Home)

The Packers welcome a Super Bowl contender into their house this week. The Eagles are just too explosive on both sides of the ball for the Packers to be there at the end of the game. Eagles Win

Week 5: Dallas Cowboys (Away)

The Packers tough start to the 2019-20 season continues with a trip to Dallas to take on the NFC East Champs. The Packers run defense will not be enough to contain the explosive Ezekiel Elliott. Cowboys Win

Week 6: Detroit Lions (Home)

The Packers welcome another division foe to Lambeau Field in what should be a game to get them back on track after two straight losses. Green Bay Win

Week 7: Oakland Raiders (Home)

The Raiders will not be a threat this year with all the hoopla surrounding them. This will be Rodgers best game so far this season and Aaron Jones should have a field day against the Raiders weak run defense. Green Bay Win

Week 8: Kansas City Chiefs (Away)

Aaron Rodgers vs Pat Mahomes should be a good watch. But can the Packers defense keep their offense in it? No. This will be a high-scoring game with the Chiefs doing just enough in the closing minutes to pull away. Chiefs Win

Week 9: Los Angeles Chargers (Away)

Philip Rivers doesn’t get the respect he deserves and with Rodgers coming into town, this is his time to shine. After losing to the Chiefs the previous week, the Packers will be out for blood. Green Bay Win

Week 10: Carolina Panthers (Home)

The Packers defense is not designed to stop a QB like Cam Newton. Despite his erratic passing, Newton and Christian McCaffrey should have a field day at Lambeau. Panthers Win

Week 11: Bye

Week 12: San Francisco 49ers (Away)

Despite their supposed ascension last season after signing Jimmy Garoppolo to a long-term deal, the 49ers still suffered. This game will showcase Rodgers at his best. Green Bay Win

Week 13: New York Giants (Away)

No matter who’s behind center for the Giants, they won’t be able to keep up with the Packers’ offense. Expect another huge day for Aaron Rodgers. Green Bay Win

Week 14: Washington Redskins (Home)

By now, we’ll know if Duane Haskins is the real deal. But that won’t matter as the Packers will be riding a two-game winning streak and feeling tons of momentum heading down the final stretch. Green Bay Win

Week 15: Chicago Bears (Home)

The Bears will be seeking a revenge win from the loss they suffered in the season-opener. Defense will be king here but Rodgers and Co are looking for a sweep to keep their playoffs hopes alive. It will come down to a field goal. Green Bay Win

Week 16: Minnesota Vikings (Away)

It’s hard to defeat a rival twice in one season, but I fear by this time, the Vikings could be out either their QB or RB. With that said, the Packers complete the season sweep of the Vikes. Green Bay Win

Week 17: Detroit Lions (Away)

With playoffs in their sights, the Packers will be as focused as ever for this game. The Lions will have no match for the Packers’ offense as Rodgers passes for over 350 yards and three touchdowns. Green Bay Win
