The NFL owners are expected to approve a 17th game for the 2021 season in their meetings this week.
Here’s what that might look like:
No extra bye week. NFL teams would play 17 games across 18 weekends.
The first Sunday of the regular season would be Sept. 12, 2021.
The last Sunday of the regular season would be Jan. 9, 2022.
Wild-card weekend could feature two games on Jan. 15, 2022; three games on Jan. 16, 2022; and one game on Jan. 17, 2022.
Super Bowl 56, originally scheduled for Feb. 6, 2022, could slide back to Feb. 13, 2022.
