Skip Bayless and Shannon Sharpe break down the Cowboys' 2017 schedule


But Dallas will once again host the Green Bay Packers in a rematch of the NFC divisional playoffs.

They'll also participate in matchups with AFC competitors including the Kansas City Chiefs and Denver Broncos. That's especially true for second-year quarterback Dak Prescott, who finished 2016 as the Offensive Rookie of the Year. Now, we know when they will be playing against those teams. The early afternoon games are slices into various regional slots. To get there, they'll have to sacrifice family time and maybe even miss Santa's visit down the chimney.

The season that lies ahead will still feature questions, though, as the team will now enter a sophomore season for the two young stars.

Then they had a one-point loss with a chance to win Game 1 of the playoffs. "We knew the importance of this game". In Game 3 on Thursday, look for Turner to come out and play more aggressively in front of the in fans.

The Dallas Cowboys schedule is out, and it's quite apparent that the Cowboys are back in the saddle of high-profile status. A report from NFL editor Gregg Rosenthal of suggested that the Cowboys have one of the toughest schedules of all teams for the upcoming season.

The Cowboys' only ESPN game is a Monday night affair, September 25 at Arizona. Dallas lost to NY to open the season a year ago, and then ended up going 13-3.

The defending NFC East champion Cowboys have five primetime games on this year's schedule, as well as their annual Thanksgiving home game Thursday, Nov. 23 against the Los Angeles Chargers. If they're battling any of them for the division crown, there's now place like home. They'll try to avenge that loss in Week 5.

A national audience gets to watch the Redskins fall apart at the seams on Thanksgiving night. On the National Football League future odds, the Dallas Cowboys have 11 to 1 odds to win the 2017-18 Super Bowl LII, trailing only the New England Patriots at 4 to 1 odds. Their farthest trip last season (outside of London) was to Dallas. (Well, on second thought after you see the next few items.) And no, this isn't rigged to favor Jerry Jones and the Cowboys.
