Smile Early NFL Schedule

I got this from Howard Balzer on ESPN1380 in STL. He is a credible source who writes for USA Today and covers NFL.

Opening Thursday Night game: Oakland @ Patroits (Randy Moss debut on big stage

First Sunday Night Game: Colts versus the Ravens

First National Game on Fox (2nd game of doubleheader) Dallas @ San Diego

Monday Night Game: Eagles versus Falcons

Again from a credible source; NFL should release schedule soon!!!! YAY!!!

Thanks to my friends at Raiderfans.net.

The San Diego Chargers will open the 2005 regular season at home against the Dallas Cowboys on Sunday, Sept. 11. The game will be the second game of a Fox national double-header weekend. The Chargers-Cowboys game is one of four key games announced today by the NFL to be played on the 2005 Kickoff Weekend.

On Sunday, September 11, the FOX national doubleheader game at 4:15 PM ET will feature the Cowboys at the Chargers. For the Chargers, they will launch the defense of their AFC West title. For Dallas, it will be the debut of their new quarterback, 13-year veteran DREW BLEDSOE.

Kickoff Weekend begins with the debut of the Super Bowl XXXIX champion New England Patriots on Thursday night, September 8 and concludes on Monday night with a rematch of last year’s NFC Championship Game.

In a tradition that was instituted last year, the Super Bowl champion now hosts the NFL Thursday night season kickoff the next year. This year on ABC at 9:00 PM ET, the Patriots will take on the Oakland Raiders. The game will feature the Raiders’ debut of wide receiver RANDY MOSS, and will be Oakland’s first visit to New England since the teams’ memorable 2001 AFC Divisional Playoff “blizzard” game.

The Sunday night primetime game (8:30 PM ET) on ESPN will be a clash of offense vs. defense when the Indianapolis Colts visit the Baltimore Ravens. It will be the Colts’ high-powered offensive trio of quarterback PEYTON MANNING, running back EDGERRIN JAMES and wide receiver MARVIN HARRISON against the Ravens’ staunch defense led by linebacker RAY LEWIS and safety ED REED, the NFL Defensive Player of the Year who led the league in interceptions last season with nine.

The September 12 Monday night opener on ABC at 9:00 PM ET will be a rematch of last season’s NFC Championship Game featuring two of the NFL’s most exciting quarterbacks – the visiting Philadelphia Eagles’ DONOVAN MC NABB against the Atlanta Falcons’ MICHAEL VICK. The Eagles defeated the Falcons in last January’s championship game, 27-10.

Also on Sunday, September 11, CBS, which has U.S. Open tennis in the late time slot, will carry a lineup of early regional NFL games. CBS will televise the NFL national doubleheader late game in Week 2.

The announcement of the Kickoff Weekend games was made Monday afternoon by NFL Commissioner PAUL TAGLIABUE at the NFL Annual Meeting in Maui, Hawaii.

The rest of the 2005 regular-season schedule will be announced at a later date.

I hope the Cowboys win and expose those Chargers. That would be one more loss on a team's resume that should be challenging the Texans for a playoff spot.

This is from USA Today on the stalled schedule announcement.
Money, network disagreement, and maybe they just want to spend more time in Maui.

But the most anticipated news regarding the league's future on prime-time television — new agreements for Monday Night Football and a Sunday night package beginning with the 2006 season — remains on hold apparently because of stalled negotiations.
