Packers Calendar: Season Opener Televised Nationally on NBC

Al Michaels and Cris Collinsworth will call the game starting at 7:30 p.m. CT on Thursday night.


It's been seven months without a meaningful NFL game being played. That ends tonight.

The Green Bay Packers go on the road Thursday evening to take on the Seattle Seahawks in the primetime NFL Kickoff game at the home of the defending Super Bowl champions.

Getting underway at 7:30 p.m. CT, the game will be nationally televised on NBC with Al Michaels and Chris Collinsworth on the call and Michelle Tafoya reporting from the sidelines.

On the radio dial, the game can be heard on the 50-station regional Packers Radio Network with Larry McCarren and Wayne Larrivee calling the action.

Earlier in the day, the Packers are hosting a Youth Football Outreach Camp for students at Stephenson Elementary School in Stephenson, Mich.

The camp includes two sessions, one at 12:30 and the other at 1:45 p.m., with approximately 170 kids participating.

Packers alumnus Johnathan Franklin will assist with the camp, along with Packers youth football coordinator Tim Schroeder.

The Green Bay Packers Youth Football Outreach Camp program, coordinated in conjunction with the NFL Play 60 program, is complimentary and provides boys and girls the opportunity to test their football skills in various drills and obstacle courses. Participants rotate through five drill stations (a relay race, kicking a ball, throwing a pass, leaping for a catch, and diving for a touchdown) that will last approximately 45 minutes.
