Breaking down the Cowboys schedule



View Transcript

PETER SCHRAGER: The NFL was buoyed by those Cowboys ratings last year.

When the Trump stuff happened, the election, everyone's like, the ratings are down.

Cowboys go on this incredible run, the NFL has crazy ratings, everything is fine, and you reward them with five-- I'm curious to see the Cowboys every single week.

KYLE BRANDT: Peter, you bring something up.

I think they should be on national television every single week.

Notre Dame is.

Notre Dame has all those home games on NBC.
