NFL Approves 17-Game Regular Season


NFL Approves 17-Game Regular Season

For the first time since 1978, the owners have approved an extended NFL regular season.

But that wasn’t the only thing that changed today. The Preseason was reduced from four games to three games. And due to the odd number of the schedule, the NFC and AFC will annually alternate which conference gets the extra road game.

The official schedule has yet to be released, but the first game of the year will be on Sept. 9th and will end on Jan 9th, 2022. The Pro Bowl and the Super Bowl have been pushed back a week as well to accommodate the new change in schedule.

Dallas will travel to New England for their 17th game and the Texans will host the Panthers.

We have a poll on our twitter page if you want to share your opinion on this new change to the NFL schedule!
