All the attention for football fans is currently surrounding the schedule release and the 2024 regular season that starts in September.

The NFL is going to formally drop the full 18-week schedule on Wednesday, May 15 at 8 p.m. ET. Despite the schedule not being out, we already know of three games that are going to take place in Week 1 (Green Bay Packers vs. Philadelphia Eagles, Baltimore Ravens vs. Kansas City Chiefs).

On May 13, the NFL revealed that the Dallas Cowboys will travel to suit up against the Cleveland Browns on Sept. 8 at 3:25 CT on FOX.

There will be some extra excitement to this contest as Tom Brady will be calling an NFL game as a commentator for the first time. Brady also admitted it will be hard to call a Cowboy game for one certain reason.

Cowboys News: Tom Brady Said It Will Be Hard to Call Dallas Games At First

Brady was on stage with fellow FOX colleague Michael Strahan as they discussed the Week 1 matchup.

The seven-time Super Bowl champion admitted it will be a tad bit difficult for him to call the Cowboys game.

Brady said, "Obviously having the Cowboys on is a huge draw. As America’s Team, that’s gonna get a little hard for me to say that all the time, understanding that they were the competition for a long time. But in this new role, I know how important the Cowboys are to this network."

Brady played in the NFL for 23 years and played against Dallas seven times. He won all seven games against the Cowboys, tossing 1,945 passing yards with 15 passing touchdowns to five interceptions.

Now the 46-year-old must take off his player cap and put on his commentary hat, which might take him some time to get used to.

Brady also took a jab at Prescott on stage. He said, "They got great storylines. Dak Prescott, let’s see if he can finally come through. Did that just slip out?"

Prescott has been ridiculed in the national media for failing to deliver in the postseason and Brady couldn't stop himself from taking a shot.
