Packers Have Most Interesting Schedule Ever

Assuming that the NFL season actually begins as planned, this is going to be one wild season for the Green Bay Packers. They'll open the season on a Thursday against the New Orleans Saints in front of what is sure to be a raucous crowd at Lambeau. They play each of their divisional rivals on national TV once throughout the season, with a Monday Night Football game against Minnesota, a Christmas night game against the Bears at home, and then on the road against the Lions on Thanksgiving.

Along the way the Packers only play six games at noon, which is befitting of a Super Bowl championship club that has deserved this exposure in front of larger national audiences. They also play a Sunday night affair in Atlanta on October 9th, which may be where my annual Packers road trip takes me this season. Here's a look at the schedule in full (printable version):

Thursday, Sept 8 - vs. New Orleans Saints - 7:30pm NBC
Sunday, Sept 18 - at Carolina Panthers - Noon Fox
Sunday, Sept 25 - at Chicago Bears - 3:15pm Fox

Sunday, Oct 2 - vs. Denver Broncos - 3:15pm CBS
Sunday, Oct 9 - at Atlanta Falcons - 7:20pm NBC
Sunday, Oct 16 - vs. St. Louis Rams - Noon Fox

Sunday, Oct 30 - Bye Week

Sunday, Nov 6 - at San Diego Chargers - 3:15pm Fox
Monday, Nov 14 - Minnesota Vikings - 7:30pm ESPN

Oh and just for the record, the picture I used for this post was not for the sign, not for the young fan enjoying her first game, but for the girl on the right. Please admire the girl on the right. Almost like a more tan version of Trenni.
