The four preseason games for the Green Bay Packers in 2013 were announced Thursday.
The Packers will play three NFC teams for the first time since 1985, and will have at least one nationally televised game for the fourth-straight year and seventh out of the last eight.
CBS will carry the third preseason game, which is scheduled to have the Seattle Seahawks travel to Lambeau Field on Friday, August 23. The last time the two teams faced off, a controversial call at the end of the contest cost the Packers a win and signalled the end of the replacement officials.
Here is the rest of the Packers’ preseason slate in 2013:
- ARIZONA CARDINALS, August 8-12
- at ST. LOUIS RAMS, August 15-19
- SEATTLE SEAHAWKS, August 23, 7:00 p.m. (CBS)
- at KANSAS CITY CHIEFS, August 29-30
Specific dates for the three other games will be determined at a later date. All games will be televised statewide on various networks.
