The 2012 season will reportedly open on a Wednesday night instead of a typical Thursday night as has been the case in recent years.
That according to the National Football Post. The report indicates that the reason the league is moving the season kickoff game to a Wednesday night is because of President Barack Obama’s speech to the Democratic National Convention, which is scheduled for Thursday, Sept. 6th. Always protective of their television partners, the league will have the Super Bowl champion New York Giants playing an unannounced opponent at this time the night before.
Speculation is the Giants will face the Packers, pitting the last two Super Bowl winners against one another. That is what the NFL did in last year’s season kickoff game with the Saints and Packers.
