2012 NFL Schedule To Be Released This Week

On Tuesday night, ESPN has blocked out a few hours of programming for what many believe will be the official release of the 2012 NFL schedule, although the network is still denying they have any inside information.

The schedule will likely be released before the NFL Draft on April 26, which would put this Tuesday night firmly in that window.

While the Dallas Cowboys' list of opponents has already been announced, the timing of when they are facing an opponent can be crucial, as Dallas has had a long history of flopping in December. The Cowboys are already scheduled to face the defending champion New York Giants as a part of the NFL's opening week kickoff on Wednesday, Sept. 5.

This season, the NFC East will face the AFC North and the NFC South, two of the more NFL's competitive divisions, which is why Dallas has the 11th toughest schedule (in terms of opponent's 2011 winning percentage) in the league.
