Packers release exhibition schedule

The Green Bay Packers today released the dates and times of their four exhibition games this August. The National Football League is expected to release the regular season schedule at the end of this month or in early April.

Due to the ongoing renovation of Lambeau Field, the Packers will play their first two exhibition games on the road, beginning at 6:30 p.m. (CDT) Saturday, Aug. 10, at Veterans Stadium in Philadelphia against the Eagles.

The Packers will play their first exhibition game against Arizona since the Cardinals moved to Phoenix in 1988. That game will take place at 9 p.m. (CDT) Saturday, Aug. 17 at Sun Devil Stadium in Tempe.

The Packers will play their only nationally televised game on Monday night, Aug. 26, at Lambeau Field against the Cleveland Browns in the annual Bishop's Charities Game. Four days later, the Packers will wrap up the exhibition season in the annual Midwest Shrine Game at home against the Tennessee Titans.

Both home exhibition games begin at 7 p.m. (CDT).

The Packers will be playing the Browns for the third straight preseason. The Titans, formerly the Houston Oilers, will be making their first ever preseason visit to Green Bay.

The Eagles, Cardinals and Titans games will be televised over the team's state network behind flagship station WBAY-TV. Former Packer and current Fox Sports analyst Bill Maas, a new member of the broadcast team, will provide commentary with play-by-play man Chris Roth. Andy Kendeigh of Milwaukee's WISN-TV will report from the field.
