I am curious to see the future plan for this. They can't rotate through the 4 divisions AND keep the home-away-home-away plan or else it would always be the same divisions hosting the same divisions.

They will probably double up the aways in year 4 and 5.....

Of course, we get the Cowboys....when the Bills/Fish/Jets get WFT/NYG/Philly.

At least, it's a home game for all of us...meaning we play game 17 on the road in 2022.....

Do we know that the Cowboys game is week 18? I assume they didn't just add it to the end of the schedule...

The media is calling it "the 17th game" but I do not for one single second interpret that to mean it will be game #17 on everyone's schedule, so I am ignoring the people who think it will be played in January. I would bet the season still ends with divisional games as we have seen these past few years.

Future plans are to have this be a temporary problem until they get the 18th game the owners really want.

So is the NFL starting Labor Day weekend or are they pushing back the Super Bowl right away for this first year?

EDIT: Never mind. Super Bowl is pushed back a week

Already used to take Super Bowl Monday off anyway. Now not so much. Ridiculous with this 17th game and unbalanced schedule. Just like baseball now. Shameful.

17-game NFL season will challenge these Patriots records | RSN (nbcsports.com)

Passing Yards: 5,235 -- Tom Brady (2011)
Passing Touchdowns: 50 -- Tom Brady (2007)
Rushing Yards: 1,635 -- Corey Dillon (2004)
Rushing Touchdowns: 18 -- LaGarrette Blount (2016)
Receptions: 123 -- Wes Welker (2009)
Receiving Yards: 1,569 -- Wes Welker (2011)
Receiving Touchdowns: 23 -- Randy Moss (2007)
Sacks: 18.5 -- Andre Tippett (1984)
Interceptions: 11 -- Ron Hall (1964)
Field Goals: 38 -- Stephen Gostkowski (2013)


I think the bolded ones have a better than 50% chance of being beaten by 2030. The rushing yards and TD record is probably 20% or so- Harris can do it if he's healthy but I don't know if the offense is going to work that way.

I don't think Brady's or Moss's records will ever be beaten again.
