The 100th NFL season will kick off with a classic rivalry game between the Packers and Bears at Soldier Field.
That Sept. 5 game in the Thursday night slot usually reserved for hosting by the defending Super Bowl champion forced New England to open three nights later against Pittsburgh.
The Patriots have a home schedule loaded with top attractions, including Kansas City on Dec. 8 in an AFC title game rematch, and Dallas on Nov. 24.
Monday night's opening doubleheader on ESPN will feature Houston at New Orleans and Denver at Oakland.
Bengals Take To The Road Early and Often This Upcoming Season
Prior to their bye in Week Nine, the Bengals will play five road games, including opening day September 8th in Seattle, on Monday Night Football September 30th at the Steelers, and October 27th at the NFC Champion Rams.
The season doesn't get any easier toward the end, as they'll play the up-start Browns twice in the last four weeks, and the Patriots at home between those games.
You can hear Cincinnati Bengals football all season long in Louisville on 790 KRD or TalkRadio 1080.
