Spagnola: NFL Missed The Boat On Final Home Game

  • While the Cowboys play five primetime night games, three of those will be home games, making those following Monday's much easier. * The two road night games are followed by home games. * The Cowboys will play back-to-back games at home three times, but only once will they face back-to-back road games, going to Arizona and St. Louis. At least a bye breaks up the consecutive road games at the Giants and Washington. * We knew this already, but 12 of the Cowboys' 16 games will be against teams with at least .500 records from last season. * The start of the season should grow some hair on the chests of the Cowboys, having to start off at Cleveland, a 10-6 team last year, then face 8-8 Philly, Green Bay (13-3) and Washington (9-7). * Once again the Cowboys are playing at home on the Sunday before the annual Thanksgiving game, then have 10 days to prepare for the game at Pittsburgh. * The Cowboys also can thank their lucky stars that game at Green Bay is a September night game, not a November or December date. So really, they have only two potentially cold-weather games, at Pittsburgh on Dec. 7 and then the season finale at Philly Dec. 28.
