We told you earlier that Tennessee and Pittsburgh would open the 2009 NFL season with a Thursday nighter, and the NFL has now announced the remainder of its national TV schedule for Week 1, along with the Thanksgiving Day slate.
The first Sunday night of the year, Sept. 13, will feature an NFC North grudge match between the Bears and Packers on NBC. As with 2008, the league will save two games for Monday Night Football's debut -- Terrell Owens and Buffalo will travel to New England at 7 p.m. on Sept. 14, followed by Oakland visiting San Diego at 10:30, with both games on ESPN.
