The Green Bay Packers will definitely have a very interesting schedule in 2014. The ultimate goal is to reach and win the Super Bowl, but the team has other goals that they have to reach as well.
The Packers will be looking for their fourth straight NFC North crown, as well as the team's sixth straight appearance in the postseason. Besides that, the Packers would like to have home-field advantage in the NFC throughout the playoffs.
The Packers also want to do something that they haven't done since the 2010 postseason. That would be getting deep into the postseason and not bowing out in either the Wild Card round or the divisional round.
Lofty goals to be sure. And the 2014 schedule will be demanding and difficult at times.
I've listed eight games on the 2014 schedule which I believe will be key matchups for the Packers. Divisional games are always big, but so are games against other prominent teams in the NFC.
It all starts on the opening night of the season when the Packers travel to Seattle to take on the defending Super Bowl champion Seahawks.
