Time for NFL fanatics to clear their calendar on Tuesday night. Before watching “American Idol” at 8, the NFL schedule will be unveiled during a sure-to-be over-the-top show on NFL network (7 p.m.).

Chances are the individual teams will be allowed to release their schedules before the broadcast.


The Redskins already know they will not play in prime time in Week 1 or on Thanksgiving.

The home games: Dallas, NY Giants, Philadelphia, St. Louis, New Orleans, Tampa Bay, Denver and Kansas City.

The road games: Dallas, NY Giants, Philadelphia, Detroit, Carolina, Atlanta, San Diego and Oakland.
