The Dallas Cowboys are coming off their best season in seven years. With one of the easiest projected schedules for the 2015 NFL season, “America’s Team” has a chance to make the playoffs for a second straight year.
With Tuesday’s release of the entire 2015 regular season schedule, Dallas learned that they will start the season with the "Sunday Night Football" opener. The Cowboys will host the New York Giants, as they are set to play their division rival in two of their first six games. Dallas has beaten New York in four consecutive games.
The Cowboys won’t have to wait long to face their star running back from last year. Dallas visits DeMarco Murray and the Philadelphia Eagles in Week 2. Murray makes his return to Dallas in Week 9.
Even though the Cowboys have the ninth-easiest schedule, based on last year’s winning percentages, they’ll still have to play both teams that made the Super Bowl. Dallas hosts the New England Patriots in Week 5, and the Seattle Seahawks will visit AT&T Stadium in Week 9.
The flexible schedule means certain kickoff times can change, but Dallas is currently set to play five games in primetime. After playing three Sunday night games in the first nine weeks, the Cowboys will play on Monday night in Week 13 and Saturday night in Week 15.
Dallas will host the Carolina Panthers in their yearly Thanksgiving Day matchup. The Cowboys lost to the Eagles by 23 points on the holiday last year.
Below is a look at the complete 2015 regular season schedule for the Dallas Cowboys.
