Packers To Open At Home For First Time In Five Years

The Green Bay Packers will open their regular season at home for the first time in five years, when they take on Seattle September tenth.

The N-F-L schedule was announced Thursday night, and former Packers' running back Eddie Lacy will make his debut as a Seahawk where he signed as a free agent. In Week Two, the Packers will head to Atlanta -- where they lost twice to the Falcons last season, and this one will be a Sunday night contest in the new Mercedes Benz Stadium. Green Bay has five night games in all, including its only Thursday night contest September 28th at home against Chicago. Cincinnati, the only team Aaron Rodgers has not beaten, will come into Lambeau on September 24th -- and the bye week comes in the middle of the season during Week Eight in late October.
