Fox says Tom Brady's announcing debut will be Cowboys vs Browns in Week 1

It's rare for an NFL game, especially a good one, to be dominated by who is in the booth.

The NFL schedule will be unveiled on Wednesday, but one of the biggest games has already been released. Fox announced that the Dallas Cowboys will face the Cleveland Browns on September 8 at 4:25 p.m. ET.

More than the game itself, this will be Tom Brady's Fox debut. The legendary quarterback has signed a 10-year, $375 million contract with Fox and will serve as the network's lead color commentator.

The Brady component of the Cowboys-Browns game is significant enough that the NFL authorized its network partner to announce the game on Monday, two days before the rest of the schedule.

Brady has a good first game to broadcast. The Cowboys, who recently won the NFC East championship, are typically a big draw. 

The Browns also made the playoffs last season and should be a contender in the AFC North. It's a thrilling game that will air within the coveted late afternoon hour. 

As Andrew Marchand of The Athletic noted out, there will be no NFL game on CBS to compete with Cowboys-Browns; instead, CBS will air the US Open tennis competition.

As he approached the end of his illustrious career, Brady became a popular name among networks. Fox landed him for an unprecedented contract in the television industry.
