There are nine days until the 2011 NFL draft, but I'm sure that many fans at this point are burnt out from all the latest news. Besides, there is something more exciting that is set to be released tonight.
That, of course, is the 2011 NFL schedule.
The schedule is set to be released at 7 P.M. EST. We already know whom each team will face next season. What we will be finding out is who has Monday Night Football matchups, when divisional rivalries will take place and the like.
Which matchups could be the most exciting ones and which could be the matchup of the year? Since there will be no Pittsburgh Steelers-Green Bay Packers rematch, that honor is wide open. Also, which teams have the toughest and easiest schedules.
All this will be looked at as we prepare for this year's schedule.
