Game: New Orleans Saints at Green Bay Packers
Stadium: Lambeau Field
Date: Thursday, September 8
Time: 8:30 PM EST
Packers fans in the Green Bay area don’t miss the chance to meet two-time Pro Bowler Clay Matthews at the Back to Football Friday Celebration, September 9th at the Stadium Bar and Grill in Green Bay. It’s all free and sponsored by Verizon.
It doesn’t get much better than kicking off the 2011 NFL season with a showdown between the past two Super Bowl winners – the first time since 2000 that the two defending champs meet in Week 1 – as the reigning champion Green Bay Packers host the New Orleans Saints at legendary Lambeau Field. Prior to the game, there will be a banner presentation, giving the Packer faithful another chance to celebrate their team’s memorable, if improbable, postseason run, which concluded in Green Bay becoming just the second No. 6 seed ever to win it all.
