COMMENTARY: The official Packers schedule is released. On Thursday night, September 8th, the Packers are scheduled to kick off the 2011 NFL against the New Orleans Saints at Lambeau Field. Also, on Sunday, December 25th, the Packers are hosting the Bears on Christmas Night at 8:20 p.m. EST. BREAKDOWN: Packers would have four prime-time games, including three on NBC’s Sunday Night Football and one on ESPN’s Monday night Football, along with a fifth national time slot against Lions on Thanksgiving Day. Further, five other games are scheduled for the late-afternoon Sunday time slot. They will be the first team in NFL history to play on Thanksgiving, Christmas and New Year’s Day. The Packers would play three of their final four games at home, including a Week 16 Christmas Day game against the Bears. Mix in a Week 13 game at the Giants and a Week 15 game at Chiefs, and the final five weeks of the schedule could be in cold-weather conditions. “I think that is awesome,” McCarthy said.
