The NFL has announced the primetime games for Week 1 including the season opener on NBC and the Monday Night Football doubleheader. First, the news from the NFL.
And if you want to see them listed, here they are:
Thursday, September 4
Washington at New York Giants – NBC, 7 p.m. (starting 90 minutes earlier to avoid conflict with the Republican National Convention)
Sunday, September 7
Chicago at Indianapolis – NBC, 8:15 p.m.
Monday, September 8
Minnesota at Green Bay – ESPN, 7 p.m.
Denver at Oakland – ESPN, 10:15 p.m.
That’s the second time in three years that Oakland will be in the Monday Night Football doubleheader and completes a three year sweep that the Bay Area has hosted the late Monday Night Football game as the San Francisco 49ers hosted the Arizona Cardinals last September.
The rest of the schedule will be announced next month.
