The 2012 NFL Schedule has been released, as all 32 teams now know who they are playing and when each game will take place. It is always interesting to see which teams dominate the primetime slate, as well as when divisional foes first meet each other for bragging rights throughout the regular season. While the Super Bowl champion New York Giants open up the 2012 NFL regular season on a Wednesday night so that everyone can pretend they care about what President Obama has to say the following evening, that game against the Dallas Cowboys should be a great way to kick off the upcoming campaign.
