DALLAS (AP) -- Tony Romo should call his first Cowboys game in November in the former Dallas quarterback's first season as lead NFL analyst on CBS. It's just a question of which game.

The first CBS game for the Cowboys will be at home against Kansas City on Nov. 5, followed 2 1/2 weeks later by their Thanksgiving game against the Los Angeles Chargers. If Romo doesn't call the game against the Chiefs, he will be in the booth at his old home stadium when the Cowboys face the Chargers on Nov. 23.

Romo's last regular-season snap at home for the Cowboys came on Thanksgiving in 2015 when he broke his collarbone for the second time that season.

The former 10-year starter was released by Dallas the same day he was introduced as play-by-play announcer Jim Nantz's new partner in early April. Romo lost his job to rookie Dak Prescott while out with a back injury last season.

The Cowboys will open against the New York Giants for the fifth time in six seasons. Dallas gets a home rematch with Green Bay on Oct. 8 after losing to the Packers in the divisional playoffs as the top seed in the NFC.
