The Green Bay Packers will start the 2021 NFL season with a Week 1 game against the New Orleans Saints.

The Packers play the Saints in New Orleans on Sept. 12.

The Green Bay Packers’ 2021 NFL schedule will feature 17 regular-season games and three preseason games.

The game will be the first between the teams since Saints quarterback Drew Brees retired at the end of the last season.

There has still been no word on if Packers' QB and reigning MVP Aaron Rodgers will return for the upcoming season after reports that he was disgruntled with the team.
