Cowboys Vs. Jets: TV Schedule, Kickoff Time, Odds And More

The Dallas Cowboys will kick off their 2011 season on Sunday night as they head to New Jersey to take on the New York Jets at MetLife Stadium. For the second consecutive year, the Cowboys will be featured as the primetime game on Sunday night. 

Being the Sunday night game makes the game incredibly easy to find on TV. The game against the Jets will be broadcast nationally on NBC, with kickoff slated for 8:20 p.m. EDT, 7:20 p.m. CDT. The game will be preceded by NBC's Football Night in America, which will begin at 7 p.m. EDT, 6 p.m. CDT. 

Given that the game is being held in New Jersey on September 11, it wouldn't be the least bit surprising if kickoff ran a few minutes later than the scheduled 7:20 CDT start time, as 9/11 tributes are almost certain prior to the game. 

If you're not going to be around a television on Sunday night, or simply can't handle the Al Michaels/Cris Collinsworth broadcast duo, you can listen on the radio in Dallas on 105.3 FM. 

Odds wise, the Cowboys are pretty solid underdogs. The Jets are either 5.5 or 6 point favorites over the Cowboys, depending on which odds site you use. The over/under is set at 40.5, except on topbet, where the over/under is 41.


NFL Week 1, Cowboys Vs. Jets: Mike Jenkins, Tyron Smith Injured In Practice

Week 1 is not off to a good start for the Dallas Cowboys - and their season doesn't open until Sunday night in New Jersey against the Jets. On Wednesday, both cornerback Mike Jenkins and offensive lineman Tyron Smith suffered knee injuries. Bryan Broaddus added that both players will be receiving an MRI on their injured knee.

Both injuries are bad news for Dallas, needless to say. The Cowboys are already likely without Terrance Newman for the season opener against New York, so losing Jenkins against the Jets could prove to be very costly. Jenkins had been held out full contact drills for much of training camp with a stinger. 

As inept as Mark Sanchez can be at times, even he should be able to capitalize on Dallas' secondary with Santonio Holmes and Plaxico Burress if both Jenkins and Newman are out.

Smith, of course, was Dallas' first round draft choice this past season. Despite being a rookie, Smith is slated to be Dallas' starting right tackle. This is now, of course, dependent upon the results of the MRI that Smith will undergo shortly.
