  • Filed Under

At San Francisco

Sunday, Sept. 8 3:25 p.m. Fox

Last year: 11-4-1, first in the NFC West. Lost Super Bowl game to Baltimore.

All-time series: Packers lead 30-26-1 (Packers lead 4-2 in playoffs).

Last meeting at San Francisco: 49ers won 45-31 on Jan. 12, 2013 in NFC Divisional playoffs.

Analysis: After ending the Packers' eight-game winning streak in the series with a 30-22 win at Lambeau Field in the 2012 season opener, the 49ers spoiled Green Bay's playoff rematch in 45-31 victory in the NFC divisional round. 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick broke the league record for rushing yards by a quarterback with 181 yards as their offense tallied 579 total yards.

Washington Redskins

Sunday, Sept. 15 Noon Fox

Last year: 10-6, first place in NFC East.

All-time series: Packers lead 17-13-1 (1-1 in playoffs).

Last meeting at Lambeau: Packers won 17-14 on Oct. 14, 2007.

Analysis: The Packers' 16-13 overtime loss in the teams' last meeting on Oct. 10, 2010, was also the last time the Packers had an individual running back eclipse 100 rushing yards in a single game. A possible matchup against reigning NFL rookie of the year Robert Griffin III will be contingent on his recovery from reconstructive knee surgery.

At Cincinnati Bengals

Sunday, Sept. 22 Noon Fox

Last year: 10-6, second place in AFC North. Lost AFC wild-card playoff game to Texans.

All-time series: Bengals lead 6-5.

Last meeting in Cincinnati: Bengals won 21-14 on Oct. 30, 2005.

Analysis: Despite being a popular preseason opponent as of late, the Packers haven't beaten the Bengals in the regular season since a 13-6 win in Cincinnati on Sept. 20, 1998. The last time the two teams played in 2009, Carson Palmer scored three touchdowns (two passing, one rushing) in the first half as the Bengals held on for a 31-24 victory.

Detroit Lions

Sunday, Oct. 6 Noon Fox

Last year: 4-12, fourth place in NFC North.

All-time series: Packers lead 93-65-7 (Packers lead 2-0 in playoffs).

Last meeting at Lambeau: Packers won 27-20 on Dec. 9, 2012.

Analysis: Detroit's longtime kicker Jason Hanson retired after 21 NFL seasons this offseason due to injury after spending his entire career with the Lions, who are still riding a 21-year road losing streak against the Packers dating back to a 21-17 win on Dec. 15, 1991. The Packers are 6-1 coming out of their bye under Mike McCarthy.

At Baltimore Ravens

Sunday, Oct. 13 Noon Fox

Last year: 10-6, first place in AFC North. Won Super Bowl over 49ers.

All-time series: Packers lead 3-1.

Last meeting in Baltimore: Ravens won 48-3 on Dec. 19, 2005.

Analysis: The Packers will be tested against the reigning Super Bowl champions in a game that likely pits the league's two highest-paid quarterbacks against one another in Rodgers and Joe Flacco. The Ravens' only win in the series came in 2005, the only game they've hosted in the series.

Cleveland Browns

Sunday, Oct. 20 3:25 p.m. CBS

Last year: 5-11, fourth place in AFC North.

All-time series: Packers lead 10-7 (Packers lead 1-0 in playoffs).

Last meeting at Lambeau: Packers lost 26-24 on Sept. 18, 2005.

Analysis: This is only the second time in Mike McCarthy's eight years as head coach the Packers have played the Browns. The Packers trumped Cleveland 31-3 in their only previous meeting under McCarthy on Oct., 25, 2009 in a game where Rodgers registered a 155.4-quarterback rating and Ryan Grant rushed for 148 yards.

At Minnesota Vikings

Sunday, Oct. 27 7:30 p.m. NBC

Last year: 10-6, second place in NFC North. Lost wild-card playoff game to Packers.

All-time series: Packers lead 54-48-1 (1-1 in playoffs).

Last meeting in Minnesota: Vikings won 37-34 on Dec. 30, 2012.

Analysis: The Vikings ended a five-game losing streak in the series with their win in the regular-season finale that catapulted them back into the postseason for the first time since 2009. Adrian Peterson rushed for 199 yards, but finished nine yards shy of the NFL single-season record.

Chicago Bears

Monday, Nov. 4 7:40 p.m. ESPN

Last year: 10-6, third place in the NFC North.

All-time series: Bears lead 91-87-6 (1-1 in playoffs).

Last meeting at Lambeau: Packers won 23-10 on Sept. 13, 2012.

Analysis: The Bears will try to take back control in the historic rivalry under new coach Marc Trestman. After winning seven their first 10 games against the Packers under Lovie Smith from 2004-2008, the Packers have taken eight of the last nine in the series and are currently riding a six-game winning streak (playoffs included). The Bears allowed Smith's contract to run out last season after a 10-6 finish following a 7-1 start.

Philadelphia Eagles

Sunday, Nov. 10 Noon Fox

Last year: 4-12, fourth place in NFC East.

All-time series: Packers lead 24-13 (Eagles lead 2-1 in playoffs).

Last meeting at Lambeau: Packers won 16-13 on Sept. 9, 2007.

Analysis: The Packers will get their first taste of new Eagles coach Chip Kelly's prolific spread offense when Philadelphia travels to Green Bay. It'll be the teams' first meeting since the Packers beat the Eagles 21-16 on the road on Jan. 9, 2011, en route to winning the Super Bowl.

At New York Giants

Sunday, Nov. 17 7:30 p.m.* NBC

Last year: 9-7, second place in NFC East.

All-time series: Packers lead 27-22-2 (Packers lead 4-3 in playoffs).

Analysis: After being responsible for ending the 15-1 Packers' season in 2011, the Giants handed the Packers one of their worst losses under McCarthy's watch in a 38-10 decision last season following a 31-point effort in the first half.

Minnesota Vikings

Sunday, Nov. 24 Noon* Fox

Last meeting at Lambeau: Packers won 23-14 on Dec. 12, 2012, in regular season and 24-10 on Jan. 5, 2013, in NFC wild-card playoffs.

Analysis: Former Packers wide receiver Greg Jennings returns to Lambeau for the first time since signing his five-year, $45-million deal with the Vikings in the offseason. A two-time Pro Bowler, Jennings played his first seven NFL seasons with Green Bay before following in the footsteps of Brett Favre, Darren Sharper and Ryan Longwell as former Packers who all played for the Vikings.

At Detroit Lions

Thursday, Nov. 28 11:30 a.m. Fox

Last meeting in Detroit: Packers won 24-20 on Nov. 18, 2012.

Analysis: The Lions have only beaten Green Bay once during Mike McCarthy's tenure as Packers head coach (1-13) with their lone victory coming on Dec., 12, 2010, in a 7-3 win.

All-time series: Packers lead 13-12 (Packers lead 2-1 in playoffs).

Last meeting at Lambeau: Falcons won 27-24 on Oct. 5, 2008.

Analysis: This will be the first meeting at Lambeau between the teams since Aaron Rodgers and Matt Ryan's first year as starting quarterbacks in 2008 when Ryan and the Falcons bested Rodgers and the Packers 27-24. The Packers lost out to the Falcons in the courtship of Pro Bowl running back Steven Jackson in March.

At Dallas Cowboys

Sunday, Dec. 15 3:25 p.m.* Fox

All-time series: Series tied 12-12 (Cowboys lead 4-2 in playoffs).

Last meeting in Dallas: Cowboys won 37-27 on Nov. 29, 2007.

Analysis: The Packers carry a modest two-game winning streak into the teams' first encounter since the 2010 season, which resulted in a Packers' dominant 45-7 win over the Cowboys, who then fired coach Wade Phillips the following week.

Pittsburgh Steelers

Analysis: The Packers and Steelers will meet for the first time since Green Bay beat Pittsburgh 31-25 in Super Bowl XLV. Aside from that game, the Packers haven't beaten Pittsburgh in the regular season since a 24-19 win at Lambeau on Dec., 24, 1995, a game often remembered for Yancey Thigpen's dropped pass that propelled the Packers to their first outright division title since 1972.
