NFL Thanksgiving schedule: Redskins host Giants, Cowboys play Chargers

Douglas Jones  Icon Sportswire

The Dallas Cowboys schedule is out, and it's quite apparent that the Cowboys are back in the saddle of high-profile status. So they upped it for the upcoming season.

More importantly, playing at Dallas in Week 1 means the Giants get the Cowboys in the Meadowlands later in the season, when the the pressure is on and the weather can become a factor.

He will be eligible to return to the Cowboys' active roster on Monday, Oct. 2 following the team's Oct. 1 game against the Los Angeles Rams.

Week 3: Sunday, Sept. 24, at Philadelphia, 1 p.m.

The Cowboys have the max of 5 primetime games but they also have an ungodly 9 late afternoon kickoffs. It will be the fifth time in six years the Giants begin their season against the Cowboys, and their fifth consecutive road opener. The Cowboys are down for seven of those. Like the other 15 games scheduled for New Year's Eve, its kickoff is penciled in. The NFL wouldn't hesitate to hand the Cowboys-Eagles to NBC if it could.

Though announcements have not come down as far as which broadcast teams will be sent to which games throughout the 2017 season, for ratings purposes, you can bet CBS will want Romo in the booth for as many Cowboy games as possible.

Just like the Detroit Lions play at home every Thanksgiving beginning at 12:30 p.m., the New York Giants will open the season at Dallas?

According to a report on Twitter that was retweeted by Alain Poupart of the Dolphins, teams are being notified now of their 2017 schedule. Now the Cowboys will try to find new playmakers that they hope will lead them to a Super Bowl winning season. The NFC South champion Atlanta Falcons are down for 10. The much-awaited rematch with the Green Bay Packers is set for Sunday, Oct. 23 at home. Similarly, the Pittsburgh Steelers have eight at 1 p.m. Smith suffered a severe knee injury that caused nerve problems in his final college game and missed all of his rookie season while rehabbing. But CBS, ESPN, Fox and NBC have an opportunity to make pitches for their schedules.
