Seahawks to open 2017 season at Packers

The Green Bay Packers will open the 2017 season at Lambeau Field vs. the Seattle Seahawks, ESPN's Rob Demovsky reported Thursday, April 20th.

On Nov. 12, the Packers play the Bears in Chicago, a place they have won in the regular season each of the last six years.

The Packers will travel to Atlanta in week two to open the NFC champion Falcons new stadium in primetime Sunday, Sept. 17. This time, it will be the Falcons' new stadium. The Packers and Seahawks had up-and-down seasons in 2016 (by their standards at least), and will be looking for a quick start to the 2017 season. The schedule also takes the Packers on the road to play the Dallas Cowboys and Pittsburgh Steelers, two of the best teams from the 2016 season. After welcoming the Baltimore Ravens to Lambeau Field for just the fourth time on November 19, the Packers travel to Pittsburgh to play the Steelers on November 26 in a Sunday night matchup.

The Packers' Week 8 bye, the latest bye week for Green Bay since 2014 (Week 9), is sandwiched by two home games. In between, they'll play four prime-time games, three of which are at home and one of which is against the Falcons in a rematch of last year's divisional-round playoff loss in Atlanta.

Seattle and Green Bay have become somewhat regular opponents in recent seasons.

Come back here later Thursday for the full schedule. The following week they travel to Chicago for a noon game. The folks at Weatherspark.com say it's generally between 46 and 55 on October 22 in Buffalo. In Weeks 5-15, the schedule lists the games tentatively set for Sunday Night Football on NBC.

The champion New England Patriots will kick off the National Football League season on September 7 by hosting the Kansas City Chiefs. The Packers hosted the Bears on Thursday night previous year, too. McCarthy has signaled that Clay Matthews, who is coming off the worst statistical season of his career with five sacks and 24 tackles, will move around the defense more than he did last season.

On Monday night, New Orleans is at Minnesota, followed by the Chargers, in their first game representing Los Angeles since 1960, at Denver.
