While the full 2023 NFL regular season schedule doesn't release until May, there’s always room to predict what the schedule may look like when it comes out.

Today, we take a stab at predicting the Cowboys’ 2023 regular season schedule. Let us know in the comments section what you think Dallas’ schedule will look like.

Week One: Dallas Cowboys AT New York Giants

The Cowboys haven’t faced a team in the NFC East in Week One since 2019, so there’s a good chance they’ll match up with one to kick off this season. A Cowboys/Eagles matchup is intriguing, but the league will likely hold those games until later in the season. Instead, Dallas opens the season facing the division rival Giants for the seventh time since 2012.

Week Two: Dallas Cowboys AT Los Angeles Chargers

Just like they did in 2021, the Cowboys start the season with two road games and travel to Los Angeles to face the Chargers in Week Two. Dallas will face off against their old offensive coordinator Kellen Moore in a game that figures to feature plenty of firepower on offense.
