2021 NFL schedule: Dates, times, TV channels for every game in all 18 weeks

0 Comments

The 2021 NFL season kicks off on Thursday, September 9 with a matchup on NBC between the defending Super Bowl champion Tampa Bay Buccaneers and the Dallas Cowboys at Raymond James Stadium. However, 2021 will be a season like no other as the NFL will debut an enhanced playing structure featuring a 17-game schedule.

Every team will play 17 games with one bye week, hosting 10 games–either nine regular-season games and one preseason game or eight regular-season games and two preseason games. Additionally, Super Bowl LVI will take place on February 13, 2022–a week later than normal–at SoFi Stadium in Los Angeles.
