The Green Bay Packers 2010 schedule opens against the Philadelphia Eagles. The Green Bay Packers 2010 schedule begins on Sunday, September 12 in Philadelphia, and will get broadcast on Fox nationally. Just glancing at the opening to the Green Bay Packers 2010 schedule reveals that they have a chance to start out the year great, and that the schedule makers deserve a nice card (and maybe some flowers) for what Green Bay has been presented with. It gets tougher in the middle weeks, but Green Bay has a shot to go 6-0 before their first real test in week 7 against the Minnesota Vikings.
Among the teams in the first six weeks for Green Bay are the Buffalo Bills, Detroit Lions, and week one opponent Philadelphia. The Eagles were supposed to be one of the tougher opponents on their schedule after they finished the 2009 season with an 11-5 record and second place finish in NFC East. The Eagles then traded away starting quarterback Donovan McNabb, and are not trying to rebuild their roster to make another run soon. They certainly aren’t ready yet though, and that should give Green Bay a heavy advantage in their week one game.
Fantasy football owners that have Packers starting quarterback Aaron Rodgers playing for them appear to be about to get some huge statistics from him through the first half of the 2010 season. This could set up Rodgers for an NFL MVP by the end of the year, and definitely makes these Packers one of the favorites to win a tough NFC North. Green Bay will hold their own destiny again this season, and if they can finally become successful against the Minnesota Vikings, the NFC North is theirs for the taking.
