Opening game announcement unlikely

PALM BEACH, Fla. -- As we've discussed, the Green Bay Packers are a likely opponent for the New York Giants in the NFL's annual kickoff game, scheduled for Sept. 5. Often the league announces the matchup for that game, along with a few other notable national affairs, during the owners meetings. But as of Sunday night, an NFL spokesman said, the details of the opening game had not been settled and an announcement this week is unlikely. Hopefully you can handle the anticipation. We'll let you know if anything changes.
