Jan 19, 2014; Denver, CO, USA; The Denver Broncos cheerleaders make angels in the confetti after the 2013 AFC championship playoff football game against the New England Patriots at Sports Authority Field at Mile High. Mandatory Credit: Chris Humphreys-USA TODAY SportsThe NFL released its 2014 schedule last night, with the usual pomp and circumstance reserved for national holidays.

You can check out the entire league schedule here at the NFL's website, but here are a few games I'm looking forward to:

Week 1: Packers at Seahawks, Thursday, September 4, 8:30 p.m. ET
In what's being billed as "Revenge of Fail Mary," the Seahawks will host the Packers for the only prime time game in Seattle. Apparently the NFL got tired of the Seahawks blowing out their opponents, so they're putting the bulk of Seattle's prime time games on the road.

Week 2: Chiefs at Broncos, Sunday, September 14, 4:25 p.m. ET
The division rivalry renews again, with the Chiefs heading into Denver to take on the Broncos, who have reloaded for another Super Bowl run.

Week 3: Redskins at Eagles, Sunday, September 21, 1:00 p.m. ET
DeSean Jackson returns to Philadelphia.

Week 4: Patriots at Chiefs, Monday, September 29, 8:30 p.m. ET
The Patriots are most likely the class of the AFC East again, and the Chiefs are hoping to continue moving upward. This could be a pivotal game for both teams.

Week 5: Ravens at Colts, Sunday, October 5, 1:00 p.m. ET
Two potential division winners square off in a battle of playoff hopefuls.

Week 6: Giants at Eagles, Sunday, October 12, 8:30 p.m. ET
An NFC East rivalry game on Sunday night. These are always entertaining.

Week 7: 49ers at Broncos, Sunday, October 19, 8:30 p.m. ET
This is a potential Super Bowl preview. Both teams look to be very strong this year.

Week 8: Seahawks at Panthers, Sunday, October 26, 1:00 p.m. ET
This could be a preview of the NFC Championship. Last year, these two teams were the top seeds in the NFC.

Week 9: Broncos at Patriots, Sunday, November 2, 4:25 p.m. ET
Brady vs. Manning. 'Nuff said.

Week 10: Bears at Packers, Sunday, November 9, 8:30 p.m. ET
One of the best rivalries in sports, played in prime time at one of the cathedrals of the NFL.

Week 11: Texans at Browns, Sunday, November 16, 1:00 p.m. ET
This could be a matchup of rookie QBs who might be worth keeping an eye on.

Week 12: Ravens at Saints, Monday, November 24, 8:30 p.m. ET
Joe Flacco and Drew Brees square off in a matchup of two former Super Bowl winners who are looking to reclaim their former glory.

Week 13: Thanksgiving Day
Bears at Lions, 12:30 p.m. ET
Eagles at Cowboys, 4:30 p.m. ET
Seahawks at 49ers, 8:30 p.m. ET

A solid trio of division rivalries on Thanksgiving Day is capped off with Seahawks-49ers, arguably the best current rivalry in the game.

Week 14: Panthers at Saints, Sunday, December 7, 1:00 p.m. ET
This game could very well be the deciding factor in the NFC South.

Week 15: Dolphins at Patriots, Sunday, December 14, 1:00 p.m. ET
This could decide the AFC East.

Week 16: Patriots at Jets, Sunday, December 21, 1:00 p.m. ET
Darrelle Revis returns to his old stomping grounds with hopes of stomping the Jets, his former team.

Week 17: NFC East shenanigans, Sunday, December 28
Cowboys at Redskins, Eagles at Giants, both at 1:00 p.m. ET

The NFC East always seems to come down to the last day of the season, and there's no reason to believe anything will change this year. Keep an eye on these games, as at least one of them is bound to be for the division.

And still, there were Week 17 NFC East games that were very important and got big ratings. Timing is everything.

Yeah, but for who. I think you noticed last year how bad the NFC East was. There was more drama off field than on.

That's not computer generated, that's intentional. They want to have the most important conference and division games at the end of the season to increase the drama.

They need to fix the "computer generating" thingy. I am really tired of all the conference games being played at the near end of the season. Also, I have a sick feeling my teams QB is a primma donna, and that makes me heartsick. Hopefully they will lose less games than last year.

"Apparently the NFL got tired of the Seahawks blowing out their opponents, so they're putting the bulk of Seattle's prime time games on the road." - pisses me off. Also, apparently they're forgetting the last 2 games at home in primetime last year. Sure, it was the playoffs, but...Seahawks are crappy, no primetime games. Seahawks kick booty at home during PT, no home PT games. On the bright side, day games are warmer.

If 49ers/Broncos is indeed a SB preview, Ima vomit. I love Peyton, but beyond that...hell to the no.

I hate having a Week 4 bye. BS.
