The full NFL regular-season schedule is being released Wednesday evening, and to give hungry football fans a little taste to get them through the day, the Week 1 schedule was released in the morning. 

The schedule makers certainly didn't skimp on the drama for the NFL's opening weekend. Here are all the games you can catch during Week 1, starting with Thursday (Sept. 9), moving on to Sunday (Sept. 12), and ending Monday (Sept. 13).

Week 1 schedule: Thursday night

What a way to kick off an NFL season. The Dallas Cowboys will face the Tampa Bay Buccaneers on Thursday, Sept. 9. Audiences will get to see Dak Prescott return to the field for the first time since his season-ending ankle injury, and Tom Brady start his quest for a second straight Super Bowl ring with the Bucs in his age 44 season. Get ready.

Week 1: Sunday night

The Chicago Bears travel west to take on the Los Angeles Rams in NBC's Sunday night opener. The big question: Which quarterback gets the honor of facing Aaron Donald and the Rams' defense – veteran Andy Dalton or rookie Justin Fields?

Week 1: Monday night

ESPN also announced its first Monday night matchup of the season. The Baltimore Ravens will face the Las Vegas Raiders, and it feels like we'll see a lot of intensity out of that game.
