2024 NFL schedule release: Here are the games we know before Wednesday’s full announcement

The NFL’s full regular-season schedule will be announced Wednesday and it will get full, over-the-top coverage from broadcasters, including the league’s network and ESPN. Before Wednesday arrives, football fans got some appetizers as some games were formally announced. Here’s a rundown of the early glimpse of the 2024 NFL regular-season schedule.

The Cowboys, who are expected to be among the front-runners for most prime-time spots, will be on the road in the afternoon against the Browns. This game will be Tom Brady’s debut as a color commentator for Fox.

It’s a rematch of last season’s AFC championship game, where the Chiefs prevailed en route to winning their second straight Super Bowl title. Lamar Jackson vs. Patrick Mahomes is as good as it gets. So why not an early encore?

The league’s first game in Brazil features two playoff teams. It’ll also be the NFL’s first Friday game since 1970.
