The 2017 regular season schedule was released for the Green Bay Packers on Thursday.

Seattle will open the season against the Packers, which will mark Eddie Lacy's return to Green Bay. It'll be the regular-season debut of Mercedes-Benz Stadium, the new retractable-roofed home of the Falcons.

The Packers played the Seahawks once this past season, in a late Sunday afternoon matchup. The schedule includes six games against 2016 playoff teams: two against Detroit, Seattle, Atlanta, Dallas and Pittsburgh.

The Packers will make five prime-time appearances this season, barring any potential flex changes in the second half of the season.

Other marquee games include a Sunday night trip to Pittsburgh on November 26 and a Saturday home game against the Vikings Dec. 23. With these first two games, Green Bay could very well start the season 0-2. However, as of the announcements on April 10th, we only knew about the order, location, and opponents in the preseason, not details on the exact dates or times of the exhibition games.

Both Monday night games will be on the road against Seattle on November 20 and Tampa Bay on December 18.

The Falcons visit Chicago in their first game.

The Falcons went on to finish 10-6 and reached the playoffs as a wild card, but were eliminated by the New York Giants. They finished 1-2 in the NFC East in 2016. The Super Bowl rematch between the Falcons and the Patriots is set for Week 7, falling on October 22 at Gillette Stadium.

The Seahawks host Philadelphia on NBC's Sunday Night Football on December 3.

The Patriots will open the season at home against the Kansas City Chiefs.

Seattle's schedule gets tough over the final two weeks. Even without safety Earl Thomas for most of last season, Seattle ranked third in points allowed with 292. Seattle will only play one game in the dreaded 10 a.m. PST time slot - in Week 14 against a Jaguars team that won three games last season.
