Packers 2007 Season Schedule Released

The NFL released the Packers regular season schedule today. Four of the Packers' first six games are at home, while four of five games late in the season are on the road. There are also back-to-back Thursday road games, starting with the Lions on Thanksgiving and followed by the Cowboys a week later. The bye week comes in Week 7 -- not bad. The Packers are currently scheduled for four nationally televised games and have no 3 p.m. or doubleheader games on the schedule, although the league can move one of the Packers' final five noon games to Sunday night as part of its flexible scheduling plan.

Here's the schedule, Packer Fans. It's a challenging one, but seems relatively fair for an 8-8 finish. If the Pack can take advantage of the front-loaded home schedule -- and then perform as well as they usually do late in the season, albeit mostly on the road -- they should have a good shot at the playoffs. (But we say that every year, don't we???)
