GREEN BAY (WLUK) -- The Green Bay Packers’ preseason schedule features an opener at Lambeau Field and a reunion with a certain wide receiver.
The NFL released the preseason schedule on Wednesday and the Packers play all four games against AFC teams.
For the second consecutive season the Packers are scheduled to open the preseason at home, hosting the Tennessee Titans.
Green Bay will stay at home the next week to play the Pittsburgh Steelers. It will mark the first preseason contest between the two at Lambeau Field since 1996. Including the regular season, it will be the fourth meeting between the two teams since 2013.
