The Green Bay Packers' regular-season schedule - highlighted by five nationally televised games - was released today by the National Football League.
"It's great to see that the NFL and our network partners feel strongly about the national appeal and popularity of the Packers, with five of our games slated for national broadcasts," President and CEO Mark Murphy said. "For those taking in games at Lambeau Field, we'll now begin our detailed planning with our sponsors for creating the great gameday fan experience."
"I'm excited for the 2009 regular season – we have a great opportunity starting with two home games and three early division games," Head Coach Mike McCarthy said. "Playing on Monday night after Thanksgiving will give us a chance for another break before the final month. Historically we've been strong in December, and we'll look to rise to that challenge."
