We already know which teams everyone in the NFL will be playing for the 2013-14 regular season, but the dates of pivotal match ups and big games have yet to be announced. That will all change on April 16 whenever the NFL rolls out the upcoming schedule. The schedule will be dropped at 8:00 p.m. ET on the date.
