NFL Schedule Release: New York Jets to Play Tampa Bay Buccaneers in 2013 Season Opener


Well, we can certainly see that the NFL has a sense of humor. While we await the official release of the 2013 NFL regular season schedule, a few leaks are surfacing that give us a heads up on a number of games on the league’s calendar. One game in particular will catch everyone’s attention and that is the New York Jets season opener at home.

Darrelle Revis’ return to the NFL field will definitely be at a stadium he is familiar with, but we don’t know whether he will be standing on the home or away sideline. That’s right, the Tampa Bay Buccaneers will be coming to town.

Per the USA Today report:

In another sign the NFL has a sense for drama and maybe even a sense of humor, the Jets will host the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in Week 1 of the 2013 regular season, a person who viewed the teams’ schedule told USA TODAY Sports. The person spoke on condition of anonymity because the NFL isn’t releasing the full schedule until 8 p.m. Thursday.

We will learn the full schedule for each of the 32 NFL teams in less than one hour.

FanSided.com will be posting the full season schedule and a schedule for every team in the league. Be sure to check back.
