The Green Bay Packers losing streak has extended to five games following their loss to the Detroit Lions. Those losses may keep coming based on their schedule.

The Green Bay Packers came up empty-handed at the NFL trade deadline last Tuesday, despite their numerous attempts to bring in a pass-catcher. So, they had to go ahead with the team they have. However, they did have what should’ve been a winnable game against the rival Detroit Lions.

As it turns out, the Packers are stuck in a hellish skid, with no end in sight. Green Bay lost 15-9 to the Lions, a team that last won a game back in Week 2. Now, the Packers are on a five game losing streak after getting off to a 3-1 start to the season.

For Packers fans wondering if things will get easier for the team, the answer to that is no.

Packers upcoming schedule is pure nightmare fuel

Green Bay lost to the New York Giants, Jets, Washington Commanders, Buffalo Bills and now the Lions. The opponent that awaits them in Week 10 are the Dallas Cowboys coming off of a bye week.

This is a Cowboys team that will be led by quarterback Dak Prescott, but their offense is not really the game-changing squad. Rather, that is the defense coached up by Dan Quinn, with a pass rush led by Micah Parsons and DeMarcus Lawrence. This could make for a tough matchup for quarterback Aaron Rodgers, who does not have the most ideal pass-catching options to wait to get open.

Four days later, Green Bay takes on the Tennessee Titans on Thursday Night Football. Not only are they on short-rest, but they have to try and stop running back Derrick Henry, who ran for over 100 yards in four straight games entering Week 9.

Then, in Week 12, the Packers face off against the Philadelphia Eagles, who are undefeated as of Week 9. Philadelphia’s defense can force turnovers at will, while their offense can run the ball at will, and quarterback Jalen Hurts can attack the secondary by targeting A.J. Brown and DeVonta Smith.

In Week 13, they play a Chicago Bears team with quarterback Justin Fields improving by the week. After that, the Packers finally have their bye.

Simply put, the next three games for Green Bay aren’t going to be fun, and the losing streak could very well increase.
