This is why some believe the NFL is the best thing going in sports today. The NFL released it’s 2014 schedule, dates and times for all the teams and fans to rejoice over. The Super Bowl champions always the get the honor of kicking off the NFL season and we definitely won’t be disappointed this season.
The Packers will travel to Seattle to face the Seahawks in the 2014 NFL regular-season opener on Thursday, September 4. The game will be televised on NBC.
Green Bay will return to Seattle for the first time since the “Fail Mary” game of 2012.
The matchup will of course be epic.
The Seahawks are the reigning Super Bowl champions and have spent the majority of the offseason on the banquet circuit, late nite television and writing columns for NFL websites.
Green Bay will enter the ballgame with something to prove and the knowledge that an opening night upset of the Seahawks could springboard them towards a Super Bowl run of their own. The other huge games on opening weekend are highlighted in bold.
