    NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell announced the 2008 Kickoff Weekend national primetime television schedule on Monday.

    For the fifth consecutive season, the defending Super Bowl champion will open the season by hosting the NFL Thursday night season kickoff. The 2008 regular season officially opens on Thursday, Sept. 4 when the New York Giants host the Washington Redskins at 7 p.m. ET on NBC.

    The kickoff will be 90 minutes earlier than the start time of the traditional season opener due to the Republican National Convention.

    The Week 1 Sunday night primetime contest will feature a rematch of of Super Bowl XLI, with the Chicago Bears at the Indianapolis Colts at 8:15 p.m. ET. It will mark the Colts' first game in their new home, Lucas Oil Stadium.

    The first Monday night of the 2008 season will feature a doubleheader for the third consecutive season. In two matchups of division rivals on Sept. 8, the Green Bay Packers will host the Minnesota Vikings at 7 p.m. ET, followed by the Denver Broncos at the Oakland Raiders at 10:15 p.m. ET. Both games will be televised on ESPN.

    The announcement of these national primetime TV games was made by Goodell at the NFL Annual Meeting in Palm Beach, Florida.

    So we're left with the following possible opponents for Week 1:

    Jets (home/away)
    Bills (home/away)
    Dolphins (home/away)
    Rams (home)
    Cardinals (home)
    Chiefs (home)

    What a snoozer for Week 1 either way :(

    Looks like we'll be playing in Lucas Oil Stadium this year. When was the last time Indy actually came here for a game?

    No kidding, what a horrible game that sounds like. Oh well, it's football so I'll watch - assuming I'm over (you know what) by then.

    2005 regular season. It is only fair since Indy seemed to come here for five years straight.

    I was hoping for a tougher matchup. I'm curious about the team's mentality for 2008 and we probably won't know until we play a tough game.

    I still hold out hope for Pats/Rams week 1 on fox at 4:15. A ratings boom for Fox since it is a "national" game and against no other NFL game on CBS since they have the US Open.

    I'm counting on the game itself to put me to sleep.

    Yea, that's all pre-determined. There is a method behind it, although I don't agree. You can check here for the details.

    So by the time this game rolls around, it will be two years since the Colts came here.

    I like an easy game to start. There's nothing worse than being 0-2 and having to win four in a row, give me a win and I'll worry about the next 15 later.

    We had the opposite back in the 2003-2004 timeframe, it all evens out.

    The 2008 season marks the year that the colts fall off.

    What's to say that we open at home week one? Maybe we open in Seattle or SF and get one of those West Coast games out of the way.
