Cowboys to host Raiders on Thanksgiving

The NFL has announced the prime-time schedule for week 1 as well as the slate of games that will take place on Thanksgiving.

The season kicks off with the Steelers hosting the Titans on Thursday, September 10th.

On Thanksgiving, the Cowboys will host the Oakland Raiders.

The Cowboys have hosted an NFL game on Thanksgiving every year since 1966 with the exception of 1975 and 1977. Their record is 26-14-1 on Thanksgiving.

The last time the Raiders played on Thanksgiving was in 1970.

The other two Turkey day games are the Lions vs Packers and the Broncos vs Giants.

Cowboys release T.O.

The Dallas Cowboys have released Terrell Owens. By releasing T.O., he will be more expensive ($9.675 million) than if he played in Big D ($8.995 million) in 2009 against the cap.

T.O. had 3 1,000-yard seasons and scored 38 receiving TDs in his 3 seasons with the Cowboys. Although he certainly dropped his share of balls, no NFL WR caught as many TD passes during T.O.'s tenure in Dallas.

Despite his on-field productivity, he was a disruptive and dividing force in the locker room.

To see a full list of places that have officially rejected of the notion of T.O. playing in their city, check out PFT's The Anti-T.O. List.
