NFL Schedule Release 2019 rumors, leaks, news on primetime, Thanksgiving, London games originally appeared on nbcsportswashington.com

The 2019 NFL schedule will be released at 8:00 p.m. ET on Wednesday, April 17 on the NFL Network.

The 2019 NFL Season begins on Thursday, Sept. 5 with the Thursday Night Football season-opener. Week 1 commences on Sunday, Sept. 8 with a full slate of games.

But what we don't know is which games will be primetime matchups, which teams are headed to London, bye weeks and much much more.

The 2019 NFL schedule rumor mill has already started, with leaks being reported well more than a day before the 2019 NFL schedule release.

The Thursday night season-opener is expected to feature the Chicago Bears and Green Bay Packers as a way to celebrate 100 years of the NFL.

If that news is correct, the annual high-profile matchup between the Super Bowl champions and a top contender is likely to be pushed to another of the primetime games during Week 1.

2019 NFL Schedule Rumors, Leaks, News:

RUMOR: Week 1: Browns vs. Giants: This is still very very much a rumor, but per Odell Beckham's twitter account, he's really excited for Week 1, and that could probably only mean one thing ... maybe: A high-profile game between his new team and his old team.

LEAK: Week 1: Cowboys vs. Giants: According to NFL Schedule Leaks, the Giants will be preoccupied with the Cowboys, meaning Odell Beckham Jr. and the Browns won't be facing his old team in Week 1.

RUMOR: Week 1: Patriots vs. Chiefs: A rematch of the AFC Championship game is rumored to be the Sunday Night Football season-debut in Week 1.

REPORT: Week 1: Packers vs. Bears: It's been reported for over a month that the two iconic franchises will meet in a Week 1 showdown between NFC North foes.

REPORT: Week 5: Bears vs. Raiders: Chicago and Oakland will reportedly head across the pond for the first London game of the season.

REPORT: Week 13: Lions vs. Bears: As is tradition, the Detroit Lions will host a game on Thanksgiving. The Bears are rumored to be their opponent for the annual turkey day matchup.

REPORT: Week 13: Cowboys vs. Dolphins: Like the Lions, the Cowboys once again get their annual spot on Thanksgiving. In 2019, they will reportedly take on the Miami Dolphins.

RUMOR: Week 13: Vikings vs. Eagles: A rematch of the 2017 NFC Championship game is rumored to take place in Minneapolis on Thanksgiving.
