Reports: Cowboys to open 2017 season at home vs. Giants... again

The NFL just can't get enough of the Dallas Cowboys hosting the New York Giants. According to several reports, the Cowboys will open the 2017 season at home against the Giants once again.

It'll be the third straight year America's Team has hosted Big Blue and fourth in the last five years. In all likelihood, the game will be featured on NBC's Sunday Night Football as a prime time game, but those details won't be released until later.

The full schedule will be announced on Thursday night.

News first broke of the Cowboys opener when WFAN radio host Mike Francesa read the Giants schedule aloud on the air. The schedule was later confirmed by other outlets.

Twitter user @NFLUpdate has leaked a couple of other games and where they will appear on the schedule, but no one has confirmed these leaks.

The leak says that the Cowboys' Thanksgiving opponent will be the LA Chargers and that Dallas will host the Green Bay Packers in Week 5.

Last season, the Cowboys finished 13-3 and were awarded a first round bye in the playoffs, but lost their first game to the Packers on a field goal as time expired.
