It's always an exciting day when the Cowboys schedule is released.
As we already learned earlier today the Cowboys will start the season at home on the national stage for a Sunday Night Football matchup against the Giants on Sunday September 10th.
Then two games on the road in Denver and Arizona before returning home to welcome the LA Rams to AT&T Stadium on October 1st for the only home noon start of the season. That's also the same day the Texas Rangers will play their final regular season home game with a 2pm first pitch, so can you say T-R-A-F-F-I-C nightmare!?
The bye week comes in week 6
Cowboys fans will have to wait until week 9 to hear Tony Romo call a Cowboys game, as CBS will have the Cowboys @ KC Chiefs game on November 5th at 3:25pm
As always the Cowboys will play at home on Thanksgiving Day - this year versus the LA Chargers at 3:30pm. Since it's also on CBS that means Tony Romo will also be on the call for that game as well.
Normally the Cowboys get a 10 day break after Turkey Day but this year they'll play the following Thursday at home, another nationally televised game - Thursday Night Football - against the Washington Redskins. Then the 10 day break arrives - and the next game isn't until December 10th on the road against the Giants.
The Cowboys will play on both Christmas Eve and New Years Eve this season. The Christmas Eve game versus the Seahawks at 3:25pm is the ONLY home game in December, and the New Years Eve Game is on the road in Philadelphia at noon to end the regular season.
