As previously announced, the Packers will play in the NFL's first ever game in South America when they travel to Brazil to kick off the season against the Eagles on September 6.
Green Bay will then have two extra days off to help with travel before the home opener against the Colts on September 15.

Former Packers running back Aaron Jones will return to Titletown as the Vikings make their annual visit on September 29.

After the trip to Brazil, six of the Packers next seven games are scheduled to kick off at noon.

The 49ers are in Green Bay for a playoff rematch on November 24. It will be the first regular season meeting between the teams since September 26, 2021. They have met twice in the playoffs since, with San Francisco winning both.

When the Dolphins come to Lambeau Field on November 28, Green Bay will host its first Thanksgiving game since 2015 when the Bears outlasted the Packers on a rainy night, spoiling Brett Favre's long-awaited jersey retirement.

The Packers also played on Thanksgiving last season, beating the Lions 29-22 in Detroit in one of the defining games of Jordan Love's first season. Green Bay is 15-20-2 all-time on the holiday.

That kicks off a stretch of four consecutive primetime games, ranging from November 28 to December 23.

This season will end similarly to last, with the Packers at the Vikings in Week 17 before returning home to close out the regular season against the Bears.
