Cowboys Reveal 2011 Schedule



    The Dallas Cowboys revealed their 2011 schedule Tuesday, pending an agreement between the NFL Players Association and the owners of course. 

    Highlighting the 2011 season are the season opener and the team's annual Thanksgiving Day game.

    First up, the Cowboys will travel to the Meadowlands on the 10th anniversary of the attacks on Sept. 11, 2001 (sounds wrong to say anniversary, no?) to play Rex Ryan's Jets at the Meadowlands.  On that same day, the Giants are rumored to be headed to Washington D.C. to face the Redskins.  All games that day will undoubtedly observe the tragedies of 10 years before -- but perhaps more so at the Meadowlands and FedEx Field.  Rob Ryan, get your D ready.

    The Cowboys home opener is on Sept. 26, an NFC matchup against the Washington Redskins.

    Bye week is Oct. 9.

    On Thanksgiving Day, the Cowboys will play host to the Miami Dolphins and on Christmas Eve the Philadelphia Eagles will come to town.

    They'll round out the year with a game against the New York Giants, in the Meadowlands on New Year's Day.  I'm saying it now ... keep Dez out of Times Square on New Year's Eve.  Do New Year's low key Dezzie, low key.

    In 2011, the Cowboys only have one Monday night game, two Saturday games (one at night on NFL Network) and the traditional Thanksgiving Day game on Thursday Nov. 24.  Of the Sunday games, the Cowboys have been scheduled three nationally-telecast Sunday night games.
