In Green Bay, in December? More on the Bucs in cold weather

Doyle BarkerApr 22, 2017

The Falcons are scheduled to play their first regular-season NFL game at the Mercedes-Benz Dome against the Green Bay Packers on September 17 on NBC's "Sunday Night Football".

The traditional Sunday noon kickoff will be seen just eight times in the season, with the first occuring on Sunday, Oct. 15 in a game at Lambeau Field against the Vikings.

After the mini-bye and Thursday Night game, the Seahawks host the Falcons for Monday Night Football then head to San Franciso for their second matchup against the 49ers. 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 NFL rumors and reports keep coming of the Green Bay Packers' draft visits, and The Cetureon have found out of a third quarterback who has been in Wisconsin recently.

Week 11 at Green Bay Aaron Rodgers is the best quarterback in the league and the Packers have a pair of excellent safeties.

This will be the first regular season that has the Packers playing home games on a Saturday, Thursday and Monday.

Green Bay will close out the regular season at Detroit for the second consecutive year, marking the first time it has finished the regular season on the road against the same team in back-to-back seasons since 1991-92 (Minnesota).

McCarthy's team had enough injuries to benefit from the bye in Week 4 last year, but without a bye later in the year it forced him to cut back on practice time in order to keep the team fresh down the stretch.

The opener: The Falcons start the season in Chicago. The Falcons held a 28-3 lead before collapsing to lose in the most historic comeback in Super Bowl history.

The rest of the opening weekend will feature what seems like a yearly occurrence, with Dallas hosting the New York Giants on Sunday night. The schedule includes six games against 2016 playoff teams: two against Detroit, Seattle, Atlanta, Dallas and Pittsburgh.

We'll begin with the Seattle Seahawks ... Multiple sources tell ESPN The Patriots will host the Kansas City Chiefs. The Packers hosted the Bears on Thursday night previous year, too.

Seattle's schedule gets tough over the final two weeks.
