The NFL announced the 2008 Kickoff Weekend schedule, which features four national games, on Monday.


The New York Giants (http://sports.espn.go.com/nfl/clubhouse?team=nyg) will host the NFL East rival Washington Redskins (http://sports.espn.go.com/nfl/clubhouse?team=was) in the season opener Sept. 4, continuing the tradition of the Super Bowl champion hosting the Thursday night season opener. Kickoff will be at 7 p.m. ET, 90 minutes earlier than usual because of the Republican National Convention.


The Indianapolis Colts (http://sports.espn.go.com/nfl/clubhouse?team=ind) will host the Chicago Bears (http://sports.espn.go.com/nfl/clubhouse?team=chi) in Sunday night's prime-time game, the first regular-season contest at Lucas Oil Stadium.
The Colts plans to play preseason games in the 63,000-seat stadium in August.


ESPN will feature a Monday night doubleheader -- the Green Bay Packers (http://sports.espn.go.com/nfl/clubhouse?team=gnb), in their first game without retired quarterback Brett Favre (http://sports.espn.go.com/nfl/players/profile?statsId=1025), will host the Minnesota Vikings (http://sports.espn.go.com/nfl/clubhouse?team=min) in the early matchup at 7 p.m. ET, while the Oakland Raiders (http://sports.espn.go.com/nfl/clubhouse?team=oak) will host the Denver Broncos (http://sports.espn.go.com/nfl/clubhouse?team=den) in the late contest at 10:15 p.m. ET.


The rest of the 2008 regular-season schedule will be completed and announced in April, the NFL said.

At least this year they will deserve it if it happens.

I doubt we get any prime time games scheduled this season to get shafted on.
