The NFL regular season schedule is almost here. 

In a sign of just how popular the league has become, the NFL announced on Tuesday that it will announce its schedule on Wednesday, creating a day's worth of anticipation and drama before the final product is unveiled. 

The schedule will be released Wednesday at 7 p.m., local time, on NFL Network, NFL.com and NFL Mobile. 

Coverage will apparently include a three-hour special hosted by Rich Eisen and featured analysts Steve Mariucci, Warren Sapp and Mike Silver. 

There will be live stream access available on mobile, the NFL announced.

If you're not into the hoopla, the full schedule will be posted online Wednesday at 7 p.m.
