Much of the 2013 Packers’ schedule has been published in the recently released 2012 NFL Record and Fact Book with 14 of their 16 opponents and sites already determined.
The Packers and the NFC North will play opponents from the AFC North and NFC East in their entirety in 2013.
In addition to facing NFC North rivals Chicago Bears, Detroit Lions and Minnesota Vikings at both home and on the road, the rest of the Packers schedule is as follows:
NFC South opponent
New York Giants
NFC West opponent
The only two games yet to be determined are a home game against an NFC South team and a road game against an NFC West team that will be scheduled based upon where the Packers’ finish in the 2012 NFC North standings.
The away game at Dallas will mark the Packers’ first return to Dallas since their win in Super Bowl XLV. Meanwhile, their home game against the Steelers will mark the first time they’ve faced Pittsburgh since Super Bowl XLV as well.
2013 will also mark the third consecutive year the Packers will play on the road against the New York Giants.
