Round two of The Masters is

The Packers released a
preliminary preseason schedule on Thursday.  
Between August 13th and 17th they head to New England.  They
travel to Pittsburgh
between August 20th and 24th.  Their Lambeau debut will be against the
Eagles between August 27th and 30th.  They wrap up the preseason at home against New Orleans on September
3rd or 4th.  With
no national TV games lets hope they don’t schedule again games on Friday night
against high school football.  The
regular season schedule comes out later this month.
