The 2012 NFL schedule has been released. The season opens on Wednesday September 6th as the Dallas Cowboys travel to play the Super Bowl Champion New York Giants. In week one, our Atlanta Falcons will also take the road as they will play the Kansas City Chiefs.
We have all off-season to analyze the schedule but a couple of things stand out. No back-to-back home or road games. Weird. Four National TV games including one against New Orleans on a short week.

@mFalcons5 Why's that? Too much home cooking?
@CFBZ Ugh, this is a problem when responding to posts on my phone. Meant to say I'm happy Atlanta doesn't have a three week stretch of away games. That amount of travel is always hard enough, let alone playing multiple teams on their home turf. I think it is at least balanced.
Has anyone looked into how many teams we play coming off of bye weeks? I think in 09 or 10 we had 3 or 4 teams we played off bye weeks, which is another pain.
