The Green Bay Packers face a very difficult schedule in 2013. According to Mike Vandermause of the Green Bay Press-Gazette, the Packers have the sixth toughest schedule in all of the NFL this upcoming season.
The Packers are also going to be facing six teams who made the playoffs last season, including the Minnesota Vikings twice.
I'm going to list eight games that I think will be pivotal for the Packers in 2013. Seven of those eight games are on the road. The Packers have been a very good team at home under Mike McCarthy over the last four years, as the team is a combined 28-4.
Things have been tougher on the road, as the Packers are 19-13 over that same period, which is still pretty good.
Still, you have to go at least .500 on the road, and you always want to beat a divisional opponent (home or on the road) more than anyone.
Let's take a look now at the eight games that will help determine the fate of the Packers in 2013.
