Breakdown: In perhaps the least surprising news of all, the NFL picked the Green Bay Packers to open the season at the defending Super Bowl champion Seattle Seahawks on Thursday, Sept. 4. It seemed likely from the moment the Seahawks hoisted the Lombardi Trophy in February. So many good story lines in that game, leading with the first meeting since the Fail Mary ending to the 2012 game and the replacement officials. The Packers don't play on Thanksgiving but still have two Thursday games.via - NFL Nation
