We are less than an hour away from the official release of the 2013 NFL regular season schedule and a few leaks are starting to surface.

We have already learned that the New York Jets will host the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in week one, along with the defending Super Bowl champions making the trip to Mile High to face off against the Denver Broncos. There is also a rumored Philadelphia Eagles schedule leak, and now one of the Thanksgiving Day games has been announced.

If the early reports are correct, NFC North Thanksgiving Day regulars, the Detroit Lions, will be hosting their division rivals, the Green Bay Packers, for a Thanksgiving treat.

Per Tom Silverstein of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel:

Nothing like an old-school heated rivalry to enjoy during Thanksgiving while you battle with your in-laws.
