How is an NFL schedule born? It starts with a computer creating 400K skeds, weeded to 14K. Then humans pick best 150 & eventually choose 1.— Rich Eisen (@richeisen) April 17, 2012
The NFL regular season schedules have finally been announced! We’ve known who’d be playing who for quite sometime now, we just didn’t know when…until now.
ESPN and the NFL Network are both running 3-hour specials to breakdown the schedules, team by team. But why waste three hours when you can just head over to NFL.com and get all the information you need in a matter of seconds?
The most highly anticipated game will be the Broncos vs. Steelers which will take place on September 9th. Barring an injury or setback, this will be Peyton Manning’s Denver debut.
