Schedule release could be coming April 13

We’ve recently tried to read the tea leaves regarding the release of the NFL schedule.  We attempted to factor any clues from the NFL Network official listings into our assessment.  The only problem?  The NFL Network listings available via NFL.com only go one week into the future.

Leave it to one of the NFL teams to take it one step farther.

Ryan Cardinal of Vikings.com (in some parallel universe, there’s a Ryan Viking working for the Cardinals), has found via TVGuide.com that ESPN2 will air an “NFL Schedule Release Special” on Tuesday, April 13, at 7:00 p.m.

Cardinal also points out that, more immediately, the preseason schedule will be released on Wednesday at 3:00 p.m. ET.

It remains to be seen whether the league will announce in advance of April 13 the Week One prime-time games or the Thanksgiving games.  In past years, those contests were announced as part of the annual league meetings.  This year, the announcement was delayed by a day and then scuttled completely.

  1. Nfl preseason schedule to be released! Wow I can’t wait for that classic Browns-Texans game with 3rd stringers in by the 2nd quarter!

  2. In the past, you could tell when the NFL schedule was finalized by when MLS published theirs. They shared a lot of stadiums. Not so much anymore.
    Well we’ll see if there is any truth to the Jets-Giants schedule changes that were necessary to make both happy.

  3. Whoop freakin eeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee
    Damn, I have absolutely NO life and I don’t care when the schedule comes out.

  4. Preseason! Season ticket holders love the full price preseason games. Even better is that the teams try to get season ticket holders to believe that they are getting a discount over the single game price.
