2012 NFL Schedule: Week 1 Opens With Cowboys And Giants

The defending Super Bowl champions host one of their fiercest rivals Wednesday night as Week 1 of the 2012 NFL season is finally upon us.

The Dallas Cowboys travel to New Jersey to face the New York Giants in a rare Wednesday-night opener that was pushed up from the normal Thursday-night start to avoid conflicting with coverage of the Democratic National Convention.

NBC will televise the game nationally, with kickoff set for 7:30 p.m. Here's the entire Week 1 schedule:

Wednesday, Sept. 5

  • Cowboys at Giants, 7:30 p.m., NBC

Sunday , Sept. 9

Monday, Sept. 10
