The Green Bay Packers’ schedule was released last night, and although the schedule doesn’t look too tough for the Packers, there are still some very challenging opponents that the team will face next season. Here are the three toughest opponents the Packers will face next season.
The toughest opponent the Green Bay Packers will face next season will be the Atlanta Falcons. These two teams faced off twice last season, once in the regular season and once in the postseason. The Falcons managed to win both matchups thanks to Matt Ryan and a high-powered offense. The Packers will need to step up defensively to win this game next season, but the story of this game will be the quarterback duel between Aaron Rodgers and Matt Ryan. I expect to see a high-scoring game with a nail biting ending.
The second toughest opponent the Packers will face next season will be the Seattle Seahawks. This will be the Packers’ first game of the season, and it will be at Lambeau field, so there is the home-field advantage for the Packers. The Seahawks are consistently one of the best teams in the NFC. Russell Wilson is a dangerous quarterback who may have the advantage against the Packers defense while the Seahawks defense is still one of the best in the league. This is a relatively newly formed rivalry with a lot of great showdowns in the past five years. These two teams will probably play one of the best games of the season.
The Pittsburgh Steelers are the third toughest team the Packers will face, and arguably the toughest team from the AFC that the Packers will face. The Pittsburgh Steelers are a team with a very good offense that has multiple threats. The problems with the Packers defense will be exposed here if the Packers don’t further improve the secondary. If they don’t, they will surely lose this game because Ben Roethlisberger is an elite quarterback who could pick the Packers defense apart.
This is another game that could turn into a very high-scoring matchup with a lot of offensive highlights. If Aaron Rodgers can step up as he always does, then the Packers have a shot at answering any touchdowns the Pittsburgh Steelers score. This will potentially be the most entertaining Packers game to watch of the season.
