The entire Green Bay Packers schedule leak is something to see. Packers fans get an early look at the Jordan Love era.

Green Bay will still be featured on primetime five times next season, or six if you include a Thanksgiving matchup against the Detroit Lions.

Among the notable matchups are that against Detroit to kick off turkey day, a matchup against the Las Vegas Raiders on Monday Night Football as Davante Adams takes on his former team, Jordan Love’s first start in the post-Rodgers era against the Chicago Bears and more.

The entire schedule lines up like this:

  1. at Bears
  2. at Falcons
  3. vs Saints
  4. vs Lions
  5. at Raiders
  6. BYE
  7. at Broncos
  8. vs Vikings
  9. vs Rams
  10. at Steelers
  11. vs Chargers
  12. at Lions
  13. vs Chiefs
  14. at Giants
  15. vs Buccaneers
  16. at Panthers
  17. at Vikings
  18. vs Bears

Packers schedule leak: Jordan Love opens against Bears

As the old joke goes, Aaron Rodgers owned the Chicago Bears — he even said so on live television after scoring on multiple occasions. It was humiliating for a proud franchise in the Windy City.

Finally, at least for the Bears fans, they get to renew said rivalry without No. 12 behind center. That’s not to suggest they’ll have more success, but at the very least it should be a bit more even.

Rodgers went as far as to consider Soldier Field a ‘second home’, and shortly thereafter took a question from the media regarding whether he still owned the franchise. After taking a second to think it through, Rodgers answered simply “yes.” That was just last season.

Now in New York, Rodgers won’t get a chance to face the Bears this season, as far as we know. Instead, Love will take over the reins and must prove himself just a little before he receives ownership stake of the beloved Chicago franchise.
