NFL schedule released, Packers to open 2020 season at Vikings

The last time the Packers played their longtime NFC North rival in Week 1 was for Aaron Rodgers’ first NFL start in 2008, a 24-19 win at Lambeau Field.

The Packers are set to play five games in prime time, including guaranteed back-to-back bookings against the NFC South.

Green Bay will close the regular season against a team other than the Detroit Lions for the first time in five seasons. Their Week 17 meeting with the Bears will be the teams’ first finale since a win over Chicago in a winner-take-all game for the NFC North title in 2013.
