The NFL is supposed to release the 2012 schedule this week. The Green Bay Packers didn’t get the NFL’s opening-night game, but rumor has it, they will play in Fox’s week one featured game against the San Francisco 49ers.
Fox broadcaster Chris Myers fueled the speculation by sending out the following tweet.
NFL expected to release regular season schedule this week…possibility the fox big game kickoff weekend will be 49ers at packers.
Whenever the game is played, it will be a home contest for the Packers. It’s an attractive matchup for Fox because it pits two playoffs teams and division champs against each other — both teams fell to the Giants in the playoffs.
The Packers other non-divisional opponents are Arizona, New Orleans, Jacksonville and Tennessee at home, and St. Louis, Seattle, the Giants, Houston and Indianapolis away.
Bring it on 49ers!!!
Can’r wait to see those D-line anf secondary improvements.
Those improvements won’t be necessary in week one, if the first game is against Alex S n 9ers! Schedule on paper looks favorable in April.
Niners like to think of themselves as badass on D. Will be interesting to see if the old “offenses need time to catch up with defenses:” saw holds true or if the 9ers get gassed trying to keep up with the Packers.
Am I only one worried about this game being the first of the year? The 49ers are one of the most physical teams out there and the packers are very injury prone. I thnk they will win, but if any key players get injured if may spell bad news for the remaining games
Im going to a road-game this season…Houston or St. Louis???
We’ll see what A- Rod has to say week one. Put some pine tar one Jermichael’s hands and the rest will fall into place. I can’t wait to play the New Jersey Giants again, the story will be different this time.
Niners are in for a rude awaking after signing Moss.
