NFL football schedule being released

(WFLX) - Are you ready for some football?

Tuesday night at 7 p.m. Eastern, football fans won't be in suspense anymore about when their favorite teams are playing. The NFL plans to release this season's schedule.

The only game we know so far, is the opener on September 5. The Super Bowl champion Giants will take on the Dallas Cowboys.

Season openers are usually played on Thursdays, but this year it will be a Wednesday, so the game won't conflict with the President's speech at the Democratic National Convention.
