Highlighting Packers’ 5 primetime games on 2022 schedule

·2 min read

The Green Bay Packers will once again play the maximum of five primetime games during the 2022 regular season. The official schedule arrived Thursday night, revealing which games the Packers will play under the brightest of lights this season.

The Packers have been dazzling in primetime over the last two seasons, winning all 10 regular season games. Matt LaFleur’s team was 5-0 in 2020 and 5-0 again in 2021, with six total wins of at least 10 points.

Here’s a quick look at the Packers’ primetime games in 2022:

Week 2: vs. Chicago Bears on "Sunday Night Football"

The Packers and Bears have played in primetime each of the last 17 seasons, including 11 of the last 12 seasons at Lambeau Field. The Packers have won 12 of the last 14 games against the Bears in Green Bay, including six straight since 2016.

The Packers’ second matchup against Bills quarterback Josh Allen. Green Bay picked him off twice and shut out the Bills at Lambeau Field when Allen was a rookie starter in 2018. This could be a potential Super Bowl preview.

Week 11: vs. Tennessee Titans on "Thursday Night Football"
