The 2011 NFL schedule is here!
The early highlights include the Packers hosting the Saints on Thursday, Sept, 8 to officially kick off the season as well as the Jets and Cowboys to play in New York on the first Sunday night game of the year.
Most of the games on opening weekend will take place on Sept. 11, which happens to be the 10-year anniversary of the terrorist attacks. You can expect the NFL to acknowledge that in some manner.
The NFL schedule release is usually an exciting day and, while many fans are still excited, the NFL lockout has put a damper on everything. The schedule is being released but at the moment there is no 2011 season. The two sides need to come to some sort of agreement in order to get the 2011 season in.
