The NFL will release the schedule for the 2013 regular season on Thursday, league spokesman Greg Aiello announced via Twitter.

Originally, it was expected that the league would release the schedule on Tuesday, April 16. One day later, the announcement came that the release would take place at 8 p.m. Thursday.

The league last week released the preseason schedule. Washington plays at Tennessee, versus Pittsburgh and Buffalo and at Tampa Bay.

The Redskins already know who they will play and where during the regular season. The dates and times will be learned Thursday. Washington will host the Cowboys, New York Giants, Philadelphia Eagles, Chicago Bears, Detroit Lions, San Francisco 49ers, Kansas City Chiefs and San Diego Chargers.

The Redskins also will play road games against the Denver Broncos, whom Coach Mike Shanahan coached from 1995 to 2008, the Minnesota Vikings, Atlanta Falcons, Oakland Raiders, Green Bay Packers and at Dallas, Philadelphia and New York.
