The Green Bay Packers may have had their schedule leaked for the NFL’s 2018 regular season, although there are some hints to the contrary.
The NFL is releasing the entire 2018 NFL schedule on Thursday night, complete with a two-hour reveal show on both ESPN and NFL Network. However, the leaks have already begun coming out from all corners, and there might be a huge one with the Green Bay Packers.
According to a tweet, Green Bay will start the season hosting the San Francisco 49ers at Lambeau Field. After that, the Packers get to take on the New York Jets away from home before returning to see the Atlanta Falcons in Week 3. The fourth week brings the Detroit Lions up to Wisconsin, before Aaron Rodgers and Co. hit the road for a date with the Seattle Seahawks.
In Week 9, Green Bay will take on the New England Patriots at Gillette Stadium on Sunday night. In Week10, the Packers will play the Los Angeles Rams at the L.A. Coliseum before going to Soldier Field for a Sunday night contest against the Chicago Bears. Finally, the Packers are hosting the Miami Dolphins in Week 12.
If these leaks are true, the Packers faithful should be pretty happy with the beginning of the campaign. Green Bay would be heavily favored over the 49ers and should be able to handle the listless Jets. This would have the Packers potentially at 2-0 before coming back to take on the Atlanta Falcons, one of the more important games on their schedule.
The official schedule is set to be released on Thursday night as aforementioned, and we will have all the coverage of news and updates as soon as possible.
