The Packers famously lost to the Seahawks in the 2012 season to a controversial play that became known as the 'Fail Mary', which also saw the end of replacement officials used by the NFL.
McCarthy told the club's official website: "This game won't be about the past, it will be about the 2014 Green Bay Packers.
"It's a tremendous opportunity for our football team. We have experience playing in the kickoff opener three years ago, and we will draw on that.
"Obviously, being the visiting team this time presents new challenges. It will help sharpen our focus even more during training camp and the pre-season."
Green Bay finished 8-7-1 in the 2013 regular season.
