Cowboys to play Houston Texans

ORLANDO -- The NFL schedule was supposed to get released today, it looks like Tuesday will be the day when we find out the prime-time schedule and who-plays-who on Thanksgiving Day.

The regular season schedule will be released in mid-April.

One thing is certain, the Cowboys will play the Houston Texans twice this season. The Texans are on the regular season schedule and Jerry Jones said the Cowboys will probably play them in the preseason.

When is uncertain, but it appears it will happen at the end of the preseason when the Cowboys return from Oxnard, Calif.

"When we return from California, we want to go to Houston," Jones said the day before the Manny Pacquiao-Joshua Clottey fight. "It could be the last preseason game or not. The game we play coming back from California would be Houston."
