Bears host Packers to open 2019 National Football League season on Thursday, Sept. 5

Patriots officially will open season on Sunday night, not Thursday

Although the defending Super Bowl champion usually hosts the first game of the season, the New England Patriots will take a backseat to the NFL's oldest rivals, welcoming a foe that's still to be determined to Gillette in Foxboro on September 8.

Today, the National Football League announced that the first game of the 2019 season will feature the Chicago Bears and Green Bay Packers.

This would be the third time in five seasons that the Packers have opened their regular season against the Bears, doing so in 2015 and 2018. Fox took over Thursday nights last season in the first of a multi-year deal, seeing increased ratings on the former laggard night as the league overall bounced back with stronger viewership. That opponent will be announced later this spring when the full schedule is released. We've been hearing these rumors for months now, but it is finally official - Chicago will host Green Bay in Week 1 to begin the historic season.

Green Bay lead the series 97-95-6 in the regular season, with the clubs splitting two postseason meetings.

The game will be played in Miami and broadcast by Fox. But according to Ian Rapoport of NFL Network, the New England Patriots will host the Sunday Night Football game instead.
