The 2012 NFL schedule will be released tonight (6pm CT) on a three-hour show on the NFL Network.
Many thought the Green Bay Packers would face the Giants in the Kickoff Week opener. But that game belongs instead to the Dallas Cowboys and New York Giants in New York.
Besides divisional opponents, the Packers will play home games against Arizona, San Francisco, New Orleans, Jacksonville and Tennessee.
The Packers road opponents outside of the division are the St. Louis, Seattle, New York Giants, Houston and Indianapolis.
The Packers opened their off-season conditioning program yesterday, the first of nine weeks of work for the players, down from 14 weeks before.
Strength and conditioning is the early emphasis. They’ll eventually ease into organized team activities in May.
