Packers 2010 Schedule In Prime Time
Four Games In All
The Packers are back among the NFL's darlings...four games when all eyes in the football world will be watching them, and the team they face.
Three of those games will be right here on Today's TMJ4, and two of those games, will be at home. None bigger than one....Sunday, October 24th...under the lights against the Vikings, and more than likely...that guy that now wears a purple four jersey.
Six games are against playoff teams, including the opener at Philly on Sunday, Sept. 12 in a 3:15pm kickoff. The home opener is the following week, hosting Buffalo in a noon start on Sunday, September 19th.
The first of four prime time games will actually be on Monday Night Football...Monday, Sept. 27th at Soldier Field against the Bears before returning home to host the Lions on Oct. 3rd in the first of 2 regular season gold package games.
Sunday, October 10th finds the Pack in the nation's capital against Donovan McNabb and Washington, before returning home for two games, October 17th hosting the Dolphins, and then Favreaggedon part 3 previously mentioned.
The Packers play on Halloween against the Jets in their new home stadium, before the next Sunday Night extravaganza against Tony Romo and the Cowboys. That's right before the bye, November 14th the latest any team can have a week off.
Getting back from vacation will be rough, traveling to Minnesota on the 21st and Atlanta on the 28th before coming back to Lambeau December 5th against the 49ers.
December 12th is back in Detroit, followed by another NBC game under the lights against the Patriots in New England.
The day after Christmas, your present is a home game against the Giants...followed by the regular season finale hosting the Bears on January 2nd, with Commissioner Goodell's mandate of all division games to close the season, trying to make them more meaningful.
Overall, a pretty fair schedule...but will it lead to Arlington and the Super Bowl? Your thoughts at email@example.com
