2013 Schedule Released

Tonight, the Packers released their full schedule for the 2013 season.

Couple of initial observations:
  • That's a really early bye week.
  • The Packers are scheduled to have five nationally televised appearances: three Sunday Night Football games (Week 8 at Minnesota, Week 11 against the Giants and Week 14 against the Falcons), one Monday Night Football game (Week 9 against the Bears) and one game on Thanksgiving (at Detroit). The games against New York and Atlanta could be flexed out, based on how competitive the matchups are that late in the season.
  • The Thanksgiving game against the Lions is traditionally an opportunity for throwbacks. The 1929 blues obviously aren't going to happen, given the color clash (although they continue to appear in the style guide), but perhaps they'll do something else?
