Posted: Updated:
Green Bay, WI (WXOW) -

There will be no easing into the divisional match-ups in 2018 for the Green Bay Packers.

They will open the regular season with home games against the Bears in week one (on Sunday Night Football) and the Vikings in week 2.

The Packers will play four of their first six games at home, including a Monday Night showdown with San Francisco on October 15.

The toughest stretch comes after the bye week when they play four out of five on the road.

Those road games in order are against the Rams, the Patriots (Sunday night), the Seahawks (Thursday night) and the Vikings.  

The Packers will play three home games in December including the season finale against the Lions on December 30.
