Aaron Rodgers is the primary reason for Packers to win it all

Few weeks from now the NFL regular season schedule kicks off.

The Green Bay Packers 2016 NFL season is finally released. Without a doubt, the Packers schedule seems lighter than what the previous years in order to get into the playoffs, especially grabbing the No. 1 seed in the NFC.

Green Bay will open the season on the road against the Jacksonville Jaguars on September 11. It won’t be easy for the Packers but they will surely be on top of the game. Surprisingly, the Packers will travel to Minnesota to face the Vikings the next Sunday. An early litmus test for Aaron Rodgers and the entire offensive arsenal as they face the Vikings’ defense. What would be difficult for the Packers is how their defense will contain Vikings RB Adrian Peterson. Before they will have a bye week, the Packers will host the Detroit Lions on September 25. Part of the success of the Packers in the recent years was their ability to win at home. In this stretch alone, the Packers can go 3-0, or probably lost to the Vikings.

The month of October would post a tremendous challenge for the Packers. Based on last season’s performances of their opponents, the Packers would likely win each game. They will host the New York Giants on October 9, Dallas Cowboys on October 16, Chicago Bears on October 20 and play on the road in Atlanta on October 30. Green Bay can go 3-1 or even at 4-0 in October. The Packers might stumble on the road against the Falcons.

November might be different but still the Packers can outlast their opponents. They will play the Indianapolis Colts on November 6, who will have quarterback Andrew Luck healthy. This could be a toss-up and the offense of the Colts might be the biggest threat. The Packers will have Tennessee Titans, Washington Redskins and Philadelphia Eagles on the road. A 2-1 would be the best prediction, but they can go 1-2.

In December, the Packers will meet strong defenses like that of the Houston Texans and Seattle Seahawks but both games will be played at Lambeau Field. Thus providing the chances of winning those games or at worst a split. Packers will play the Chicago Bears on December 18 on the road before they host the Minnesota Vikings on December 24. Packers will have their final regular season game on January 1 against the Lions.

With a healthy quarterback and complete receivers in the roster, the Packers can get into 13-3 for the best and 11-5 at worst.

    11-5 at worst? Probably a reasonable assessment, but he still sounds like a cocky douche bag
