The Cleveland, Arizona and Kansas City games will be broadcast on the Packers' 10-channel network of regional affiliates.

Some notes about the games:
— The Packers open the preseason against the Browns for the third straight year, this time at Cleveland Browns Stadium. The Packers beat Cleveland 17-0 at Lambeau Field in 2009 but lost 27-24 at Lambeau last year. This will be Green Bay's first preseason trip to Cleveland since 2003.
— This will be the Cardinals' first preseason visit to Lambeau Field since 1978, when the team was based in St. Louis. The Packers won that game 23-17. This will be the 62nd annual Upper Midwest Shrine Game, which has raised more than $3.1 million for the Midwest Shrine's burn centers and hospitals for crippled children. The Packers have won nine of the last 12 in the Shrine series.
— The Indianapolis game will mark the Packers' first trek to Lucas Oil Stadium and their first preseason game in Indy since 1996. The Packers routed the Colts 59-24 in the third game of last year's preseason, rallying from a 17-7 deficit.
— For the second consecutive year, these teams will wrap up the preseason. With the Packers' key players barely playing or not playing at all, they lost 17-13 at Kansas City last year. This will be the 51st annual Bishop's Charities Game, a charitable contest initiated in 1961 by Vince Lombardi and the Diocese of Green Bay that has raised more than $3.4 million.
