NFL schedule release

    We've known the opponents since the end of the regular season, but the week-by-week comes out at 5 p.m. MDT today.

    The only game known for sure is the Cowboys at the Giants in the Wednesday opener.

    It will be interesting to see how the schedule is set with 13 Thursday night games and every team guaranteed at least one game in prime time (Thursday on NFL Network, Sunday on NBC, Monday on ESPN).

    A nice first Sunday nighter would be Manning and the Broncos at Brady and the Patriots. Suspect the orange and blue will see plenty of night games this year.

    PK had an intem in MMQB a few weeks back that said it's been about a decade since the last time the Giants and Cowboys played at noon on Sunday.

    Packers at Lions rumored to be the first Monday Night Game of the year. A "leaked" schedule supposedly has the Lions on national TV four times (twice on Monday, once on Sunday and Thanksgiving).

    NFL has denied the leaked sked, which I saw posted on another message board.

    There will probably be some real leaks coming out in the next 90 minutes or so.

    Will never live up to the last Steelers-Broncos game.

    I'm hoping for Lions-Packers on Monday night so we don't have to spend three months pretending the Lions are any good.

    Doesn't sound like it:

    WNST: Bengals at Ravens in first Monday night game.

    Gosh, that game won't be over-hyped at all.

    King again (obvious ESPN won't leak since they have a show on the schedule): Colts open against the Bears.

    One MNF appearance for the Steelers; what's up with that?

    The MNF schedule sucks compared to SNF. Three games on Sunday nite for the Stillers. One vs. Ravens was predictable.
