2010 OPPONENTS DETERMINED
 
The opponents for all 2010 regular-season games have been determined and a complete list of each team's home and away matchups was issued today by the NFL.
 
The scheduling formula implemented in 2002 with realignment guarantees that all teams play each other on a regular, rotating basis. After the 2008 season, a decision was made to continue with the same rotation in 2010.
 
Under the formula, every team within a division plays 16 games as follows:
 
·         Home and away against its three division opponents (6 games).
 
·         The four teams from another division within its conference on a rotating three-year cycle (4 games).
 
·         The four teams from a division in the other conference on a rotating four-year cycle (4 games).
 
·         Two intraconference games based on the prior year's standings (2 games). These games match a first-place team against the first-place teams in the two same-conference divisions the team is not scheduled to play that season. The second-place, third-place, and fourth-place teams in a conference are matched in the same way each year. 
 
The official 2010 schedule, with playing dates and times, will be announced in the spring.
 
NFL Kickoff 2010 Weekend will begin on Thursday night, September 9, and the regular season will conclude on January 2. 
 
Wild Card Weekend will be Saturday and Sunday, January 8-9; Divisional Playoff games on the weekend of January 15-16; and the AFC and NFC Championship Games on Sunday, January 23.
 
The 2011 Pro Bowl will be played at Aloha Stadium in Honolulu, Hawaii (date TBD).  
 
Super Bowl XLV at Cowboys Stadium in North Texas will be played on Sunday, February 6.
