While the lockout lingers, fans will get a chance Tuesday to see what games will be played if the owners and players settle their differences in time for the regular season.

The NFL announced Monday that the schedule will be released Tuesday at 7 p.m. ET on NFL Network and NFL.com.

The defending Super Bowl champion Packers will host the season's Thursday night opener on Sept. 8 and tomorrow's announcement will end the speculation about who their opponent will be. There are also rumors that the Giants and Jets will open their respective seasons by facing off at the New Meadowlands Stadium on the night of Sept. 11. The game would mark the 10th anniversary of the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks.
