NFL Week 1 Schedule Starts with Green Bay vs Seattle

nfl-logo1The NFL 2014/2015 football season will open with what is posed to be a great matchup between last year’s Super Bowl Championship team the Seattle Seahawks vs. the Aaron Rodgers-lead Green Bay Packers. Tonight’s Thursday night game starts at 8:30 p.m. ET, and as with previous years will be broadcast on NBC. But don’t look for future Thursday Night Football games on NBC, as CBS has won the rights for eight Thursday night games starting with the Pittsburgh Steelers vs. the Baltimore Ravens on September 11.

The Thursday night games will take the place of previously aired sitcoms and reality shows, and will be a big change for CBS viewers on Thursdays. But CBS hopes to attract an untapped audience on Thursday nights during the time slot, an audience that will be tuning in when hit shows like “Big Bang Theory” and “Two and A Half Men” return after the eight weeks of NFL.

The CBS-broadcast NFL games will also air simultaneously on the NFL Network cable channel starting September 11. However, on October 30, the Thursday night games will be broadcast solely on NFL Network.
