The NFL has announced that the 2012 NFL schedule will be released at 7 p.m. Tuesday. Both ESPN and NFL Network will be running lengthy schedule shows.
This isn't the first bit of scheduling news we've had this year. The NFL already released the preseason schedule, and they've also announced that the defending Super Bowl champion New York Giants will host the Dallas Cowboys on Wednesday, Sept. 5, for the first regular season game of the year.
Among the things to watch this year are the primetime games for your team. Every team will have a primetime game this year, whether that be Sunday Night Football, Monday Night Football or Thursday Night Football. The NFL has expanded their Thursday Night Football schedule this year from eight to 13 games.
