Only one Monday night game, so the team can stay on a more regular weekly schedule.
Two home games to finish out the season.
The Packers have the 22nd most difficult schedule, based on 2009 team records. Much better outcome than I expected.
Bye week doesn't come until week 10. No chance for banged up players to heal for games seven, eight and nine against the Vikes, Jets and Cowboys.
No Thanksgiving game. (personal preference–nothing makes me happier than GB on Thanksgiving).
