Cowboys' final regular-season game at Texas Stadium
NFL Network announced its eight-game, regular-season prime-time schedule. Game times for the contests -- seven on Thursdays and one on Saturday -– are 8 p.m. ET. NFL Network's schedule features four division matchups and teams which combined for six playoff berths and five division titles in 2007.
Among the highlights of NFL Network's Thursday and Saturday Night Football:
The Denver Broncos and Cleveland Browns, who met in three AFC Championship Games in four years in the late 1980s, kick off the NFL Network slate on Thursday, Nov. 6 at Cleveland Browns Stadium. The Browns have won seven of their past eight at home, but Denver has historically played well in Cleveland with a 9-2 record in the city.
Each NFL Network telecast will feature a live, two-hour pregame show from the host city, providing a unique feel for the atmosphere surrounding the event. In addition, a one-hour postgame show will wrap up the action with interviews, highlights and press conferences.
