The National Football League (NFL) release its 2012 schedule on Tuesday with details about the 17-week, 256-game regular-season schedule and the Super Bowl XLVII.

As previously known since last month, the season opener will be Sept. 5 at MetLife Stadium between the New York Giants and Dallas Cowboys on Wednesday.

The kickoff weekend has 13 games scheduled, most notably the AFC champs the New England Patriots against the Tennessee Titans and Peyton Manning's debut with the Denver Broncos on Sunday, Sept. 9.

The first Monday Night Football will be Cincinatti versus Baltimore and Oakland versus San Diego.

There will be 14 Thursday night games in 2012 beginning in Week 2 with the Bears and the Packers. Two games will be played overseas: The St. Louis Rams as the home team against the Patriots in London on Oct. 28 and the Seahawks versus the Bills in Toronto on Dec. 16.

Bye weeks begin in Week 4 and extend until Week 11.

Super Bowl XLVII will be held at the Superdome in New Orleans on Feb. 3.
