While the 2008-2009 NFL schedule has not been finalized, we now know which teams we will be playing and whether they will be home or away. The official dates and times will be announced by the NFL in the spring.
Packers 2008-2009 Home Games: Chicago Bears, Detroit Lions, Minnesota Vikings, Atlanta Falcons, Carolina Panthers, Dallas Cowboys, Houston Texans, Indianapolis Colts
Packers 2008-2009 Away Games: Chicago Bears, Detroit Lions, Minnesota Vikings, New Orleans Saints, Tampa Bay Buccaneers, Seattle Seahawks, Jacksonville Jaguars, Tennessee Titans
I think we can expect quite a few primetime games because there are some great (but tough) matchups on our schedule. The games against Jacksonville, Dallas, Tennessee, and maybe Seattle are pretty attractive matchups for NBC and ESPN to fit into their Sunday Night and Monday Night time slots, respectively. And of course, I can all but guarantee you the NFL will want Green Bay vs. Indy on primetime. I wouldn’t be surprised to see that as the NFL’s opening game of the season, especially if Brett Favre returns. We’re going to have a tough schedule next year, but it will be a great chance to prove that our 13-3 2007 campaign was no fluke.
