t’s official – the 2021 NFL schedule will be 17 games.
The league owners ratified the plan on Tuesday, which adds a 17th regular-season game and cuts the number of preseason games down to 3. Each team will still get one regular season bye week.
In case you have any questions about the 17-game NFL season, I tried to answer them here in this article I just wrote in the last five minutes as far as you know: https://t.co/r3jRazlniW

It’s the first time since 1978 the NFL has expanded the regular season, one year after expanding to 14 playoff teams in 2020.
How do you feel about a 17-game season? Will they bump it up to 18 eventually?
