- The Packers schedule for the upcoming season was released Wednesday night.
The Pack opens the year and the entire NFL season against the defending Super Bowl champs - the Seattle Seahawks in their house.
It's a Thursday night game - on Sept 4th. The game is live on Newswatch 12.
Of course it's a rematch of the Packers controversial loss to the Seahawks 2 years ago. Many nickname the game "Fail Mary". The interception ruled a touchdown.
Their first home game will be Sept 14th against the New York Jets.
Highlights of the schedule include the Pack hosting the Vikings on Thursday Night football. Oct 2nd is that game.
Packers are scheduled to play Sunday night games in New Orleans (Oct 26th) and at home against Chicago (Nov 9th).
