NFL 2019 Schedule: Complete List Of Primetime, Thanksgiving & International Games

NOLA's Wil Lutz & team had a good night against the Texans but the real winner looks to be the NFL & ESPN AP

The NFL is out with the schedule for its 100th-anniversary regular season. Check out the list of all 2019 primetime, Thanksgiving and international games below.

The regular season again will kick off on a Thursday night. But in a departure from recent years, the defending Super Bowl champion won’t be playing in it. The league has announced last month that the Chicago Bears will host the Green Bay Packers to open the campaign. It will mark the 199th matchup between the NFL’s two oldest teams; the Pack holds the career edge with a 97-95-6 record. As usual, it’s billed as Sunday Night Football and airs on NBC.

The 50th season of Monday Night Football will begin with the now-traditional doubleheader on ESPN: New Orleans Saints host Houston Texans at 7:10 p.m. ET, followed by Oakland Raiders entertaining the Denver Broncos at 10:20 p.m. ET. All 12 of last season’s playoff teams will join the Monday night party during the year.

This year’s Turkey Day schedule begins with the traditional Detroit Lions home game, this year against the division rival Chicago Bears at 12:30 p.m. ET on Fox. The Dallas Cowboys, who also have a Thanksgiving home game every years, will take on the Buffalo Bills at 4:30 p.m. ET on CBS. And the late game will have the New Orleans Saints traveling to Atlanta to take on the Falcons in another bitter division rivalry. That one starts at 8:20 p.m. ET on NBC.

Fox will televise Super Bowl LIV on February 2 from Hard Rock Stadium in Miami. Read Fox’s full 2019 NFL schedule here.
