NFL announces five games featured on opening weekend, three games on Thanksgiving

(March 27, 2006) -- The NFL announced its 2006 Kickoff Weekend nationally televised schedule -- including a Monday night doubleheader -- and its Thanksgiving Day national TV tripleheader.

In a tradition instituted in 2004, the Super Bowl champion annually hosts the NFL Thursday night season kickoff the following year. This Sept. 7 at 8:30 p.m. ET, the Super Bowl XL champion Pittsburgh Steelers will oppose the Miami Dolphins as NBC rejoins the NFL's TV family for the first time since 1997. The game will feature a quarterback match up of Pittsburgh's Ben Roethlisberger and the Dolphins' Daunte Culpepper, acquired recently from Minnesota in a trade.

On Sunday, Sept. 10, the FOX national doubleheader game at 4:15 p.m. ET will feature the Dallas Cowboys at the Jacksonville Jaguars, who finished 12-4 and earned a playoff spot last season

The Sunday night primetime game (8:15 p.m. ET) on NBC can be called the "Manning Bowl" and it will be a history-maker. The AFC South champion Indianapolis Colts will visit the NFC East titlist New York Giants. It will be a matchup of quarterback brothers -- the Colts' 30-year-old Peyton Manning against his sibling, 25-year-old Eli Manning of the Giants. It will be the first time in NFL history that brothers will start at quarterback against each other.

Monday night, Sept. 11, will feature the first regularly scheduled Monday Night Football game on ESPN, and the first regularly scheduled Monday Night Football doubleheader. The first game (7 p.m. ET) will pit the Minnesota Vikings, under new head coach Brad Childress, at the Washington Redskins, an '05 Divisional Playoff team. The Monday night "nightcap" (10:15 p.m. ET) will be an AFC West meeting of the San Diego Chargers, directed by new starting quarterback Philip Rivers, at the Oakland Raiders, also led by a new coach, Pro Football Hall of Famer Art Shell.

On Sunday, Sept. 10, CBS, which has U.S. Open tennis in the late afternoon slot, will carry a lineup of early regional NFL games. CBS will televise the NFL national doubleheader late game in Week 2.

The NFL will kick off its new late-season primetime television package on NFL Network on Thanksgiving night, giving NFL fans three games on Thanksgiving Day for the first time.

The early game that day (CBS, 12:30 p.m. ET) will feature the Dolphins at the Detroit Lions, under new head coach Rod Marinelli. The second game (FOX, 4:15 p.m. ET) will send the NFC South champion Tampa Bay Buccaneers to Dallas to face the Cowboys.

The Thanksgiving package concludes at 8 p.m. ET on NFL Network when the top two teams in the AFC West last year meet. The Denver Broncos (13-3) will visit the Kansas City Chiefs (10-6).

The announcement of these national TV games was made March 27 by NFL Commissioner Paul Tagliabue at the NFL Annual Meeting in Orlando, Florida.

The rest of the 2006 regular-season schedule will be finalized and announced in April.

Good gosh. The NFL really wants to make the opening weekend a blow-out event huh?

Manning Bowl Sunday night AND a Monday Night doubleheader? FIVE nationally broadcast games out of 16 in the opening weekend? What on earth are they giving the schedule people?

And the new Thanksigiving tripleheader as well. Not so big on this, but Broncos-Cheifs certainly have possibilities. Looks like good potential matchups in the traditional two games as well.

Blow out as in lopsided games??? Hmmm...I don't know. I'm happy to see my Dolphins getting some primetime exposure again. I doubt they'll beat the Steelers though...I hope it's a good game. And I hope Daunte is healthy...that's the key thing imho. If not, it may be Maddox vs. his old team (ewwwww!!).

Colts vs. Giants looks like a good one......they'll promotoe the Manning vs. Manning matchup ad finitum!

Chargers vs. Raiders-left coast game. At first, this looks like a dud but the Chargers are down a bit after losing Brees....Phillip Rivers first game....the $20 million dollar man....

Jacksonville in a national game against the Cowboys that is a real surprise too! It is nice that the Jags are finally getting noticed. Hopefully the Steelers will be able to take care of the Dolphins, I think they will be a playoff team this year.

I am super pissed about some games being broadcast on the NFL network. I travel for a living and I haven't stayed in a hotel yet that has NFL network. I have it at home but that does me no good unless I am there, which isn't very often. Why can't they give all 4 networks, plus ESPN all the games? So when the NFL network broadcasts games later in the season on Thurs or Sat I will be shit out of luck to see that game unless I happen to be in the local maket. What a bunch of crap.

IMHO I think the NFL should auction off EVERY SINGLE GAME to major cable/network channels so all games can be seen nationwide in every home and hotel. I pay a shitload for NFL Sunday ticket too, even though I only get to use it 6 weekends a season, if I'm lucky. I know it the NFL offered all the games to all the major networks/cable channels they would rake in the cash, probably make more than they do now. And broadcasting games on a channel that isn't on basic cable, at least in most markets, i.e. the NFL network, shouldn't be done.

I bet we start to see cable companies that will have to make the NFL part of their basic package because of the number of complaints they get. If not the NFL will take a lot of heat from their fans. I would not be surprised if part of the NFL's long term plan is to have games only on the NFL network and to have pay for games exclusively on the NFL network.
