– Green Bay opens the final month of the regular season against Arizona, only the second time the Cardinals have played at Lambeau Field in December (Dec. 21, 1969)

– The Packers end the season with two road games in the final three weeks for the seventh straight year.

– In Week 15, Green Bay will face the Bears in Chicago, a place it has won in the regular season each of the last seven years.
