The day the NFL schedule is released is like Christmas in April for football fans. Sure, everyone already knew who their team would be playing in the upcoming season, but now they know when! They can finally make plans.

Of course, many of those plans are likely to revolve around the primetime games. Monday Night Football (in spite of its up-in-the-air broadcast crew). Thursday +Night Football. Sunday Night Football. And all the other random primetime games nestled in the 2019 NFL season.

All your old “favorites” will be there. The New England Patriots. The Pittsburgh Steelers. The New Orleans Saints. The…Cleveland Browns? Yes, America’s Team, as the Browns are now known, have plenty of chances to back up their hype to a national audience. In fact, they’re playing in primetime in three of the first five weeks, so you know the NFL is banking on you to want to find out.

Without further ado, here is your complete primetime schedule for Thursday, Sunday, and Monday Night Football in 2019. It’s also worth noting that, beginning in Week 5, the NFL can choose to flex a different game into Sunday Night Football with various restrictions. So there are sure to be some differences once we get there and find out some teams we thought would be bad are actually good and some teams we thought would be good are actually bad.
