It’s mid-May so y’all know what that means.

It’s time to discuss football, which is a year-round pastime here in the South. The NFL last week announced their 2021 schedule.

The opener offers a tasty matchup with the Dallas Cowboys, America’s team, visiting the Super Bowl champion Tampa Bay Buccaneers, led by the ageless Tom Brady. The kickoff is Thursday night at 7:20 our time, Sept. 9 on NBC.

Sept. 12:

Steelers at Bills, noon (CBS)
