Keeping track of all the schedule rumors

The 2020 NFL schedule will be released Thursday night at 8 p.m. ET, but of course we will be getting leaks and rumors throughout the day. Some of them will be credible and some ... Less so.

It looks as though the Giants playing the Cowboys (again...) is right back on the table as it is being reported that the Washington Redskins will open against the Philadelphia Eagles.

We have known who the New York Giants will be playing in 2020 since the 2019 season ended. That the Giants would play the rest of the NFC East is a given, and we also knew they would play the third-place teams in the NFC North and South. And because of how the schedules rotate over the years, we also knew the Giants would play the entire NFC West and AFC North divisions.

After the season we found out the Giants’ home and away games, and this is how it breaks down.


Dallas Cowboys, Philadelphia Eagles, Washington Redskins, Arizona Cardinals, San Francisco 49ers, Cleveland Browns, Pittsburgh Steelers and Tampa Bay Buccaneers.


Dallas Cowboys, Philadelphia Eagles, Washington Redskins, Seattle Seahawks, Los Angeles Rams, Chicago Bears, Cincinnati Bengals and Baltimore Ravens.

ESPN’s John Clayton has reported that he expects the first four games of the season to be non-conference games, which would mean that we would see the Giants play the Steelers, Ravens, Browns, and Bengals first.

This, of course, begs the obvious question: Just how is the NFL going to justify moving the Dallas Cowboys to the AFC North for the first week of the season?

The Giants opening against the Cowboys has become cliche to the point of meme-dom, and even the Giants’ Twitter account is getting in on the fun.
