Read three intriguing matchups for Rodgers and the Pack below.
Rodgers versus Tom Brady. What could be better? Brady could easily have been the NFL MVP last season after having one of his best years in recent memory, but Rodgers snagged the award. It will be a 2020 NFC Championship rematch at Raymond James Stadium at 4:25 p.m. on September 25 and can be seen on FOX.
Almost as intriguing as Rodgers vs. Brady will be Green Bay heading to Buffalo to play Josh Allen and the high-powered Bills. Rodgers will face the highest-ranked Bills defense from a season ago. Green Bay will have the challenge of defending Allen. That game is scheduled for Sunday, October 30 at 8:20 p.m. ET on NBC.

Rodgers will face a tough LA defense. The game is scheduled for Monday, December 19 at 8:15 p.m. ET in Green Bay.
