Home/Away Opponents for 2012

The NFL has released its official list of home and away opponents for the 2012 season; the official schedule with dates and times will not be released until April. With that said, the following are the teams our Green Bay Packers will be facing...

Home: Chicago Bears, Detroit Lions, Minnesota Vikings, Arizona Cardinals, San Francisco 49ers, New Orleans Saints, Jacksonville Jaguars, Tennessee Titans.

Away: Chicago Bears, Detroit Lions, Minnesota Vikings, St. Louis Rams, Seattle Seahawks, New York Giants, Houston Texans, Indianapolis Colts.



A few observations:

- The potential budding rivalry between Drew Brees and Aaron Rodgers continues as the Saints return to face the Packers at Lambeau Field [possible Opening Night matchup, with the Packers celebrating back-to-back Super Bowl titles? ;) ].

- San Francisco is another interesting opponent; their defense looks terrific this year, they have a good running game, and Alex Smith will be in his 2nd year under OC Greg Roman (consistency among the coaching staff has been a problem for SF in recent years).

- The Packers return to MetLife Stadium to take on the Giants; it should be another good game between these clubs.

- We're still 6 wins behind Chicago in the rivalry; 85-91-6. Granted, Aaron is 7-2 against them; we'll make up ground, but I'm still not happy that they have more wins in the series.
