PALM BEACH, Fla. (AP) -The Indianapolis Colts will open Lucas Oil Stadium with a prime-time game against the Chicago Bears on the NFL's opening weekend.
The Sept. 7 rematch of the 2007 Super Bowl won by the Colts will be played Sunday night in the new $700 million stadium in Indianapolis. NBC will televise the game.
The Colts plans to play preseason games in the 63,000-seat ballpark in August.
Also on the opening weekend schedule is a prime-time Monday doubleheader on ESPN, with Minnesota visiting the Brett Favre-less Green Bay Packers at 7 p.m. EDT and Denver at Oakland at 10:15 p.m. EDT.
Perviously reported was the Thursday night season opener hosted by the New York Giants. The Super Bowl champions will play Washington, with an earlier-than-usual starting time of 7 p.m. EDT in deference to the final night of the Republican Convention.
The rest of the NFL schedule will be announced later in April.
