NFL delays schedule announcement

IRVING, Texas – The NFL has decided to delay the announcement of the 2013 schedule, which was set to be announced Tuesday.

“It will not be tomorrow but could be in the next week or two,” an NFL spokesman told Pro Football Talk. “We’re working to finalize it.”

In addition to their NFC East foes, the Cowboys will host Green Bay, Minnesota, Oakland, Denver and St. Louis and travel to New Orleans, Kansas City, San Diego, Chicago and Detroit.

If there is one lock it is that the Cowboys should play Denver on Thanksgiving, which means Peyton Manning’s first trip to Cowboys Stadium. With CBS broadcasting the game, the holiday game has to be against an AFC foe. In 2009, the Cowboys played the Raiders on Thanksgiving, so it would make little sense to replay that game four years later.
