NFL Announces 2008 Kick-off Weekend: Lucas Oil Stadium

Lucas Oil Stadium better be ready to go by early September, because the brand new stadium will host NBC's Football Night in America on Sunday, September 7th at 8:15pm. It's then that the Colts will host the Chicago Bears in a re-match of Super Bowl 41.

The earlier Thursday night game will pit the defending champion NY Giants against the Washington Redskins, who will debut their new head coach Jim Zorn.

Looks like "The Lube" will get an early close-up. Irsay and others must be very confident building will be done by late-August. Tip to torontocoltsfan.
