The Cowboys know against whom and where they open the 2012 season. They will find out the rest Tuesday night.
The league announced Monday that it will release the schedule at 6 p.m. Tuesday. The league already had announced that the Cowboys would visit the Giants on Wednesday, Sept. 5, in the season opener. It marks the first time Dallas has played the Giants in the season opener since 1995, a 35-0 Cowboys' win. But the Cowboys opened in New York last year, losing to the Jets in their season opener.
The Cowboys already know who they play the rest of the 2012 season. They just don't know when.
They get Chicago, Cleveland, New Orleans, the New York Giants, Philadelphia, Pittsburgh, Tampa Bay and Washington at Cowboys Stadium. They will travel to Atlanta, Baltimore, Carolina, Cincinnati, Philadelphia, Seattle and Washington in addition to their kickoff game against the Giants.
