Green Bay Packers open 2013 season at San Francisco

The 2013 NFL schedule was released on Thursday night and after weeks of speculation on who the Green Bay Packers will face, the answer is finally here.

The San Francisco 49ers.

The Packers will take on the 49ers in the primetime slot on September 8, 2013 at 3:25 p.m CDT in San Francisco’s Candle Stick Park.

All Packers fans know that the 49ers not only beat the Packers in the Divisional Round of the Playoffs last season, but also came into Lambeau Field week 1 and handed the Packers a 30-22 loss.

The Packers have said all offseason that the focus is learning how to stop the read option that the 49ers used to accumulate over 500 yards of total offense against the Packers in the playoffs, there new techniques will be tested right off the bat.

The Packers-49ers series has been very entertaining over the past two decades with a number of big games between the two.

Who can forget the 1999 NFC Wild Card game when Steve Young hit Terrell Owens with just a few seconds left on the clock to beat the Packers 30-27?

Or how about when the Packers knocked off the 49ers in the 2002 NFC Wild Card game winning 25-15?

Overall, the Packers have won 14 of the last 16 meetings against the 49ers dating back to the 1990 NFL season.

The past record means nothing as the 49ers will open up as the NFC favorite to represent the conference in the Super Bowl.

Can the Packers avoid three losses in a row to the 49ers and the second consecutive opening day loss to the 49ers?

Or will the 49ers set out to embarass the Packers again?

Find out Sept. 8.
