Dallas Cowboys 2011 Schedule

Schedules for all 32 teams in the NFL have now been released, and the Dallas Cowboys have an interesting 2011 slate. This is, of course, assuming we have a full 16 game schedule of football in 2011 - which I'm oddly optimistic that we will.

Anyway, the Cowboys' schedule for 2011 looks like this:

Week 1: Cowboys at Jets, Sunday, September 11, 8:20 p.m. EST, NBC
Week 2: Cowboys at 49ers, Sunday, September 18, 4:05 p.m. EST, FOX
Week 3: Redskins at Cowboys, Monday, September 26, 8:30 p.m. EST, ESPN
Week 4: Lions at Cowboys, Sunday, October 2, 1:00 p.m. EST, FOX
Week 5: Bye
Week 6: Cowboys at Patriots, Sunday, October 16, 4:15 p.m. EST, FOX
Week 7: Rams at Cowboys, Sunday, October 23, 4:15 p.m. EST, FOX
Week 8: Cowboys at Eagles, Sunday, October 30, 8:20 p.m. EST, NBC
Week 9: Seahawks at Cowboys, Sunday, November 6, 1:00 p.m. EST, FOX
Week 10: Bills at Cowboys, Sunday, November 13, 1:00 p.m. EST, CBS
Week 11: Cowboys at Redskins, Sunday, November 20, 1:00 p.m. EST, FOX
Week 12: Dolphins at Cowboys, Thursday, November 24, 4:15 p.m. EST, CBS
Week 13: Cowboys at Cardinals, Sunday, December 4, 4:15 p.m. EST, FOX
Week 14: Giants at Cowboys, Sunday, December 11, 8:20 p.m. EST, NBC
Week 15: Cowboys at Buccaneers, Saturday, December 17, 8:20 p.m. EST, NFLN
Week 16: Eagles at Cowboys, Saturday, December 24, 4:15 p.m. EST, FOX
Week 17: Cowboys at Giants, Sunday, January 1, 1:00 p.m. EST, FOX

A few interesting dates and times in here. The first thing that immediately sticks out to me is the schedule surrounding the games with the Giants. The Cowboys won't play the G-Men until December, when they play them twice in a span of four weeks. Sandwiched between those meetings are games against the Bucs (on a Saturday night) and Eagles on Christmas Eve.
