NFL changed their bye week scheduling from last year. For the 2011 season, bye weeks lasted from Week 5 - Week 11 (excluding week 10). For the 2012 season, bye weeks are from Week 5 - Week 10.
-NFL Thursday Night Football - All 32 teams play one game on a Thursday. NFL Network carries a total of 13 games from Week 2 - Week 16, excluding Week 8 (MLB World Series) and Week 12 (NBC carries the Thanksgiving primetime game). The NFL really tried to limit teams from traveling cross-country for Thursday Night Football and it mostly worked (except for the Buffalo Bills at San Francisco 49ers in Week 10 and the Oakland Raiders at the Cincinnati Bengals Week 11). Also every team playing on Thursday has a Sunday game the prior week (except for the San Francisco 49ers, who have their bye week).
-The New York Giants and Dallas Cowboys will kick off the NFL Season on Wednesday, September 5th on NBC. They also lead the league in appearances in primetime with 5 games each. The Philadelphia Eagles, New Orleans Saints, Green Bay Packers, Detroit Lions, Chicago Bears, New York Jets, Baltimore Ravens, and Denver Broncos all have 4 appearances.
The NFL International Series continues with the New England Patriots at the St. Louis Rams on October 28th in London, England and the New York Jets at the Buffalo Bills on December 16th in Toronto, Canada.
-Week 1 of the 2012 NFL season is highlighted by NBC Sunday Night Football matchup of the Houston Texans at the Denver Broncos on September 9th. On Monday, September 10th, ESPN carries a double header lineup of the Green Bay Packers at the Detroit Lions at 7:00pm and the Tampa Bay Buccaneers at the Oakland Raiders at 10:15pm.
-The Thanksgiving lineup for the 2012 NFL season features the Houston Texans at the Detroit Lions (12:30pm CBS), the New Orleans Saints at the Dallas Cowboys (4:15pm FOX), and the New England Patriots at the Tennessee Titans (8:20pm NBC).
The ESPN Monday Night Football Game on December 24th featuring the Denver Broncos at the Oakland Raiders has been moved from 8:30pm to 8:00pm.
