The NFL schedule will be released on April 21, 2015, as each team will learn when they play the teams on their schedule. Each team’s 2015 opponents were decided in late 2014, but the official schedule is not released until today. Some key matchups to look out for are the Denver Broncos-Chicago Bears with John Fox facing his old team in the Broncos, Green Bay Packers-Dallas Cowboys, Seattle Seahawks-Packers in an NFC Championship repeat from the 2014 season, and Cowboys-New England Patriots.
Sources say that the Super Bowl champion Patriots will host the Pittsburgh Steelers on Thursday September 10, 2015 at 8PM on ESPN to open the season.
Tune into NFL Network for the broadcast that begins at 8 PM. There will also be a special Sportcenter on ESPN that will broadcast the schedule release as well.
