As expected, the 2012 regular-season schedule will be unveiled on Tuesday, April 17 at 7:00 p.m. ET.
The league will pull the sheet off the proverbial Rocky statue at 7:00 p.m. ET. (Hopefully, Clubber Lang won’t show up.) Inevitably, some games will leak before them, if/when individual teams get their hands on the document.
Two weeks ago, a fan fabricated a 2012 schedule, duping many into thinking it was real, despite several clear flaws.
Once the 2011 regular season ended, the opponents and locations were locked in for 2012. Still, fans want to know when their favorite teams’ games will be played, whether and to what extent the games will scheduled for prime time, especially with an expanded Thursday night schedule in 2012.
For now, it’s known that the Cowboys and Giants will play on the evening of Wednesday, September 5 to launch the season, and that the Patriots and Rams will play in London in late October.
