We are 3 months away from the Packers first preseason game of 2020. Whether fans will be in the stadium or not, hopefully we are getting closer to seeing some football.
The Packers will open the preseason at home against the Arizona Cardinals. This will be the fourth year in a row that the Packers open the preseason at home. Three of the teams preseason games will be on Saturday night with the last one being on a Thursday night.
Let’s take a look at the preseason schedule:
- Saturday, August 15 vs Arizona Cardinals, 12 p.m.
- Saturday, August 22 vs Cleveland Browns (Gold Package), 3 p.m.
- Saturday, August 29 at New York Giants, 7 p.m.
- Thursday, September 3 at Kansas City Chiefs, 7 p.m.
The first two games are at home while the last two games are on the road and both 7 p.m. games. Interesting enough, the two games at Lambeau field will be held in the afternoon.
This preseason will be the 26th time that the Packers and Cleveland Browns have met in the preseason. That game will tie for the second-most games played against one opponent in franchise history. The most games preseason games the Packers have played against one opponent is tied between Pittsburgh and Washington.
The preseason games will be carried by their flagship television partner, WTMJ-TV Milwaukee. The preseason games are televised throughout the Wisconsin, Upper Michigan, northeastern Minnesota, the Quad Cities, Des Moines, Cedar Rapids and Waterloo in Iowa, Peoria in Illinois, St. Louis in Missouri, Sioux Falls in South Dakota, Omaha in Nebraska and Anchorage, Fairbanks and Juneau in Alaska.
