It's game-day once again. More importantly, it's the first game day of the 49ers 2012 regular season schedule! For each game this season, I'll be getting a post together Sunday morning (or Thursday or Monday morning) to give you a quick rundown of the tv information, game time and radio options to listen to the game. The 49ers will be on national television quite a bit this year, but for those games they are not nationally televised, a few extra tidbits can be helpful.
Today's matchup between the 49ers and Packers will be broadcast across most of the country as the FOX Game of the Week. Unfortunately, a few folks will be stuck with other games. If you have not checked out The506.com, it has a breakdown of the coverage for this afternoon's games. The Pacific Northwest, the Carolinas, and parts of some surrounding states will be without 49ers coverage later today.
The most important reminder is that the normal 4:05 and 4:15 starts have been bumped back to 4:25 so there is less chance for overlap on games.

49ers Vs. Packers Odds
The 49ers currently sit as a five point underdog to the Packers. If I was a betting man I'd actually take the 49ers to cover. I have my own homer-ific tendencies, but I think a cover is reasonable. I think the 49ers can win this game, but even if they don't, I think they can keep it close enough where 24-20 isn't out of the realm of the possible. But why not just win outright?
