The Packers return to Lambeau Field to host Pittsburgh on Sunday.  Kickoff is set for 3:25 p.m.

GREEN BAY, Wis. (AP) -- The Green Bay Packers have opened the doors on the team's new player facilities.

As part of the Lambeau Field atrium expansion, the player facilities had to be moved and were upgraded in the process, including the team's cafeteria, weight room, resource area and lounge. There's a new indoor practice area, a 35-yard turf field that could be expanded someday to replace the Don Hutson Center.

WLUK-TV says at the center of the new facilities is a lobby where the players enter. The Packers' four Lombardi trophies are front and center in the lobby along with other markers of the team's success. President Mark Murphy says it reminds the players of the team's great history and tradition and is meant to be a motivator for future success.
