April 20 (UPI) -- The 2017 NFL schedule isn't officially released until Thursday night, but details are slowly leaking out.

A source told NJ Advance Media that the New York Giants will open the 2017 season against the Dallas Cowboys at 8:30 p.m. on Sept. 10. The NFC East battle will be on Sunday Night Football on NBC.

Dallas and New York have faced off for Week 1 in four of the past five seasons. The Giants swept the season series against the Cowboys in 2016. Dallas won the division with a 13-3 record, while New York went 11-5.

The Washington Post reported that the Giants and Washington Redskins will face off Thanksgiving night at FedEx Field in Hyattsville, Md. The holiday contest marks the first time the Redskins have hosted a Thanksgiving Day game.

NJ Advance Media also reported that the Philadelphia Eagles will face the New York Giants on Sept. 24 at Lincoln Financial Field in Philadelphia and on Dec. 17 at MetLife Stadium in East Rutherford, N.J.

A league network source told 9 News Denver that the Denver Broncos will host the Los Angeles Chargers in their season opener on Sept. 11 at Sports Authority Field in Denver.

The Boston Globe reported Saturday that the New England Patriots' season opener will "almost certainly" be against the Kansas City Chiefs on Sept. 7 at Gillette Stadium in Foxborough, Mass.

Additional games will be revealed at 8 p.m. EDT when the NFL officially releases the 2017 full-season slate.
