TEN faces PIT in NFL kickoff game on Sep 10th.

Looks like the Ravens got their wish and ducked out of the kickoff game after all. The Thursday night matchup on NBC will showcase the AFC’s best as the Titans, owner of the best record in 2008, meet the Super Bowl Champion Steelers at Heinz Field.

Later that week NBC presents the oldest rivalry in football as the Bears take on the Packers at Lambeau Field in a Sunday night battle.

The Monday night double header features BUF and Terrell Owens at NE with a hopefully healthy Tom Brady and in the night cap the San Diego Chargers travel to Oakland (oh joy!).

The Raiders also get some prime time on Thanksgiving as they fly to Dallas for the middle Turkey day game. After some discussion, Detroit holds onto their traditional Thanksgiving game, they host Green Bay. The NY Giants are at Denver for the last of three televised Thanksgiving games.

In other notes, 2011 may the year the NFL unveils a 17 or 18 game schedule. Hint: the collective bargaining agreement with the players ends in 2010. Rumors are that the preseason will lose 1 or 2 games which will simply be added to expand the regular season.
