The Green Bay Packers got an early look at their 2023 schedule Thursday morning. Packers fans had a lot of opinions on how the season could unfold in Jordan Love’s first season starting.
The NFL plans to release the full schedule for the upcoming season at 8 pm EST Thursday Night. Some games were released ahead of time this week by the NFL. Journalists sorted through clues dropped by the league this week and pieced together a few games. By Thursday morning, Matt Schneidman with The Athletic had figured out the Packers’ schedule with a source’s help.

So much for Aaron Rodgers being the sole reason the Packers were always in the late afternoon/ prime time window https://t.co/APAl9lhV8Y— Dusty Miller (@D_DogMiller6596) May 11, 2023

Not that Matt and his outstanding Microsoft Excel skills need it, but was told #Packers do indeed have been scheduled for FIVE prime-time games to begin the post-Rodgers Jordan Love Era. NFL did hedge with 3 of 5 in late-season flex window.— Jason Wilde (@jasonjwilde) May 11, 2023

A few initial notes from the schedule:— Packers History (@HistoricPackers) May 11, 2023
– Both games against Detroit are on Thursdays, marking the seventh time Green Bay has had multiple Thursday games in the same season (also '94, '07, '11, '14, '15, '19) and the first time both have been against the same opponent. https://t.co/DRGfuwc2TE
