NFL Schedule to be Released April 16

Brad Mills-USA TODAY Sports

Get your calendars ready. The release of the 2013 NFL schedule is three weeks away.

According to a report by John Ourand of the Sports Business Journal, the NFL is set to release its schedule on Apr. 16.

Something to keep in mind about this, is that the NFL had asked the Redskins about when RG3 could return from the injury he sustained in the team's final game of the 2012 season. The reason the league did this is so it could determine which night-game slots would be best suited to feature the Redskins.

Because of the team's repeated comments about not rushing Griffin back before he is 100 percent healthy, it's likely that we could see a few Sunday or Monday night games toward the end of the season. Assuming the Redskins are in another hunt for the NFC East crown, that's a great scenario for fans, as well as players who welcome the extra attention.

In addition to divisional opponents, the Redskins will host the Chicago Bears, Detroit Lions, San Francisco 49ers, Kansas City Chiefs and San Diego Chargers in 2013.

As for road games, the Redskins will travel to face the Green Bay Packers, Minnesota Vikings, Atlanta Falcons, Denver Broncos and Oakland Raiders in addition to the Philadelphia Eagles, New York Giants and Dallas Cowboys.
