Schedule release coming Thursday night

NFL to release regular-season schedule Thursday

League spokesman Greg Aiello announced Tuesday that the NFL’s 2013 regular-season slate of games will be announced on Thursday at 8 p.m. ET.

The schedule was widely expected to drop Tuesday, but the league told’s Around The League on Monday that it had yet to be finalized.

Along with facing the other AFCW teams twice each, Denver will host Baltimore, Washington, Philly, Tennessee, and Jacksonville, and visit New England, Dallas (likely on Thanksgiving), Indy, Houston, and the Giants. They are again expected to be featured in several night games.
