The Bears will open the 2009 season against their rival the Green Bay Packers.
The NFL announced today that the Bears will face the Packers on Sunday, Sept. 13, at Lambeau Field. The game will be televised on NBC beginning at 7:30 p.m.
This will mark the fourth consecutive season the NFL's oldest rivalry has been played in prime time. The Bears hosted the Packers on "Monday Night Football" last season. They played at Green Bay on "Sunday Night Football" in 2007 and at home on the same night in 2006.
