Packers release 2013 preseason opponents

The Green Bay Packers will open the preseason against the Arizona Cardinals at

Russell Wilson

Russell Wilson

Lambeau Field after last hosting the Cardinals during the preseason in 2011.

In Week 2, Green Bay travels to St. Louis to face the Rams.  The last time the Packers visited St. Louis for a preseason game, it was to face the St. Louis Cardinals prior to the 1983 season.

CBS will broadcast the third preseason contest against the Seattle Seahawks and will feature a rematch against former Badger quarterback Russell Wilson.  Wilson first faced the Packers on a Monday night last season, a game the Seahawks won.  The third preseason game is generally the game in which teams play their starters the longest.

The Packers will wrap up exhibition play with a road game at Kansas City, the fourth straight year the teams will have met in the preseason finale and the second time at Arrowhead Stadium.
