    The NFL released the home and away opponents for all teams Monday, with the final schedule to be released in the spring.

    This fall, the 2011 Cowboys will, of course, face the NFC East rival Redskins, Eagles and Giants at home.  In addition, the team will play host to the Dolphins, Bills, Seahawks, Rams and Lions.

    The Cowboys will travel to Philly, D.C., and New York but will also have road games against the Patriots, Jets, Buccaneers, Cardinals and 49ers.

    At first glance, the schedule looks much easier than the 2010 campaign.  In 2011, the Cowboys will only face four teams that made the postseason in 2010: The Eagles, Seahawks, Patriots and Jets.
