    Well I know what our last 6 games will look like:

    Saints
    Ravens
    49ers
    Steelers
    Dallas
    Eagles
    I don't always root for the Cowboys but when I do I wear my pink Jessica Simpson edition Romo jersey. (yes I lost a bet)

        if they sign Peyton perhaps. but more likely the packers. that game has everything - storied franchises, recent SB champs, Eli vs. Rodgers, revenge factor for playoffs.

          Yeah I see the Pack. They did Pack VS Saints last year, so why wouldn't it be Pack VS G-Men this year?

            How did the Packers not make that list?

                  I believe it goes something like this - if the AFC/NFC wins the SB, then its a rematch of the conference championship, unless either conference wins 2 or more in a row, then its the last 2 SB winners to open.

                        Cannot be 49ers. That is slated to be a road game. Super Bowl champs always open up that Thursday nightgame at home for the banner raising ceremony.

                          The NFL likes to match up the last two Super Bowl champions. And we just so happen to have a home game against Green Bay on our schedule in 2012.

                          Book it.

                              Not possible since the opponents are set by other means already (6 division games, 4 games against one NFC division and 4 games against one AFC division, and play the same seeds in the 2 NFC divisions you're not playing). And there's some algorithm to determine the home-away decision.

                              The only constant is the SB champ opens at home on Thursday Night. They have 8 home games to choose from. No guarantee the previous SB winner or Conference Championship opponent is on the schedule.

                              In 2008 for example we did not play the AFC East for a Super Bowl rematch (Pats), we didn't play the AFC South to play the previous year's champs (Colts), and we didn't play the NFC North for an NFC CG rematch (Packers).

                              This year we get the NFC South, AFC North, and the 2 other divisions' #1 seeds, Green Bay and New Orleans. Crap. Gonna be a brutal title defense.
