The Packers' opponents for next season were determined when Dallas, Green Bay and Seattle all clinched their divisions Sunday.

According to the scheduling formula, the Packers are matched with the NFC East and the NFC West for their at-large games within the conference. The league matches first-place teams with first-place teams, second-place teams with second-place teams and so forth.

The formula calls for the Packers to play the NFC East champions at home, thus the date with the Cowboys at Lambeau Field. The Packers will have to play Seattle on the road.

In addition to their NFC North games, the Packers play Atlanta, Carolina, Houston, Indianapolis and the Cowboys at home. And on the road they play New Orleans, Tampa Bay, Jacksonville, Tennessee and the Seahawks.
