NFL announces 2014 schedule
CenturyLink Field
The season will open with the Seahawks hosting the Packers on Sept. 4.
New York, NY (SportsNetwork.com) - The National Football League released its 2014 regular-season schedule on Wednesday.

It will open with the Super Bowl XLVIII champion Seattle Seahawks hosting the Green Bay Packers on Thursday, Sept. 4 at what's sure to be a raucous CenturyLink Field celebrating the franchise's first title.

Kickoff weekend features 13 games on Sept. 7, with the first Sunday primetime matchup pitting Peyton Manning against a familiar foe as he leads the reigning AFC-champion Denver Broncos opposite the Indianapolis Colts at Sports Authority Field at Mile High. Manning, of course, was the Colts' starting quarterback for 13 years before neck surgery and the arrival of Andrew Luck ended his memorable tenure in Indy in 2012.  continue>>
