Dallas Cowboys 2012 NFL Schedule Announced: 6 of First 9 Games on Road.

Starting the season with 6 of the first 9 on the road is a tough way to start a season. That includes at the defending champ Giants and Philadelphia one of the toughest places Dallas ever goes. It’s early to say but my first impression is this schedule is tough. Five out of the ten non division opponents were playoff teams last year.

Notable games:

  • Giants: First game is loaded with stories. Former Cowboy TE Marty Bennett is on the Giants roster now.
  • Buccaneers: WR Laurent Robinson probably has this game circled. The Cowboys did not sign him so he landed with the Bucs.
  • Bengals: Now have Terrance Newman and Dallas has guard Nate Livings.
  • Saints: Will not get to face former QB coach Sean Payton due to “Bounty gate” suspension.
  • Redskins on Turkey Day is always a classic.
  • The Bears at home on Monday night.

One thought on “Dallas Cowboys 2012 NFL Schedule Announced: 6 of First 9 Games on Road.

  1. The bye in week 5 comes after 2 long road trips (NY, Seattle) & 2 home games–and then the ‘Boys have to hit the road again 4 out of the next 5 games. If the ‘Boys can survive all the early-schedule games on the road, they should have a chance to finish the season strong…
