The plan of action for the 2006 Green Bay Packer schedule was originally determined in 2002 when the National Football League took a more active role in the schedule process. This action was due to the inequities, discrepancies and misalignment of the team schedules prior to that time. The 2006 Green Bay Packer schedule is part of an eight year cycle which sees each team playing each other team twice during the period. One game is a home game and the other game is an away game.
The opening game of the preseason was played against opponent San Diego Chargers at San Diego on August 12. It was lost by two touchdowns with only one field goal in the fourth quarter on the scoreboard. San Diego earned touchdowns in the first and second quarters and kicked a field goal in the third quarter. The Chargers were held scoreless in the fourth and final quarter.
On August 19, Green Bay met the Atlanta Falcons the home field for the Midwest Shrine game. It was a 38-10 win for the Packers. Each team scored a touchdown in the first quarter, Green Bay managed a respectable 17-3 score in the 2nd quarter, neither team scored in the 3rd quarter and the Falcons were held scoreless in quarter 4, while the Packers racked up 14 points.
Green Bay lost to the Cincinnati Bengals on August 28, 17 to 48 at the Bengals home field.
Another loss, this time to the Tennessee Titans occurred on September 1. The home-field Bishops Charity Game ended at a dismal 35 to 21.
The first game of the regular season was against the long-time rival Chicago Bears on September 10. The home field game was lost when the Packers were unable to gain a single point to the 26 points collected by the Bears.
Game #2 against the New Orleans Saints the home field was the second loss of the season, with 27 points to 34 by the Saints.
Finally, the first win of the regular season–this against the Detroit Lions at 31 to 24–was also a home game
The remaining two games before the Bye week were played against the Eagles – a home game and against the St Louis Rams, both games were losses.
Eleven games remain to be played during the 2006 regular season, six at out-of-town locations and five home games.
