NFL Schedule 2012: Dallas Plays Home Opener Early Sunday

After a bad loss to the Seattle Seahawks in Week 2, the Dallas Cowboys will finally play their first home game of the season when they face the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in Week 3. It may not be a cake-walk, as Tampa put up a mighty fight against the New York Giants in their own Week 2 affair. Only an unbelievable fourth quarter by Eli Manning kept the Bucs from improving to 2-0. The teams will face off at noon on Sunday.

Sunday night will probably bring the game with the most intrigue as the Patriots face the Ravens in a battle of two teams coming off of surprising losses.

Here is the full slate of games for Week 3, all times given are Central:

Thursday, Sept. 20

Sunday, Sept. 23

Monday, Sept. 24

The full NFL schedule for the entire season can be found over at SI.com.
