At 8:00 PM Eastern time tonight, the NFL will finally announce its schedule for the 2013 season. Since the Green Bay Packers are a consistent playoff team and have a worldwide fan base, it seems reasonable to expect that at least a few games will be played in prime time or on national television.
One of the biggest questions revolves around whether the Packers will be the Detroit Lions' opponent on Thanksgiving Day 2013. The Lions played an AFC team last season, meaning the game was on CBS. Therefore, they will be on FOX against an NFC opponent this year, and the Packers have often been the team of choice. They played in Detroit on Thanksgiving most recently in 2011 (that was the infamous Ndamukong Suh stomp game), and they have played on the holiday every odd year this century except for 2005.
As a reminder, here are the teams that the Packers will be playing this season.
