Although the Green Bay Packers have known the identities of their 2018 regular-season opponents since the end of last season, the dates, times and order of the games and their bye week will be revealed Thursday at 7 p.m. CDT, when the NFL releases its full schedule, the league announced Tuesday.
The Packers will play home-and-away games against each of their three NFC North rivals: the Minnesota Vikings, Detroit Lions and Chicago Bears.
The Packers also will welcome five other opponents to Lambeau Field: the Arizona Cardinals, San Francisco 49ers, Buffalo Bills, Miami Dolphins and Atlanta Falcons.
On the road, the Packers will face the Los Angeles Rams, Seattle Seahawks, New England Patriots, New York Jets and Washington Redskins.
The Packers reportedly have requested that they open at home in honor of their 100th anniversary season.
The Packers' preseason schedule was released last week:
Week 1: Aug. 9-13 vs. Tennessee Titans
Week 2: Aug. 16-20 vs. Pittsburgh Steelers
Week 3: Aug. 23-26 at Oakland Raiders
Week 4: Aug. 30-31 at Kansas City Chiefs
(All exhibition games will be broadcast on the Packers TV Network)
