The highly anticipated NFL regular season schedule for the 2020-2021 season has finally been announced. So, all you die-hard fans out there better mark your calendars for the grand return of football. Here are all the details that have been released about this upcoming NFL season and how to use them.

How it Works

The current NFL regular season scheduling formula has been in place since the year 2002, around eighteen years. The schedule is broken down so that every team faces an even playing field. Here is a breakdown of the NFL formula:

  • Each team will play both home and away games against their three division opponents, for a total of six games.
  • Every team will also face the four teams from within its own conference from another division, for a total of four games. This occurs on a rotational cycle of three years.
  • Each team will also play four teams from a division in the other conference for a total of four games. This will be on a rotational cycle of four years. 
  • Teams will face two intraconference games that will be based on the standings from the previous year. These matches will see a 1st place team facing off against the 1st place teams in the two same conference divisions that this team has not been scheduled to come up against that season. The 2nd place, 3rd place, as well as the 4th place teams in a conference are matched in that exact way every year.
  • Starting in the year 2010, there was a change implemented on how teams are matched in the schedule rotation. This change was made to ensure that teams playing both the AFC and NFC West divisions would not be required to make two trips to the West Coast, while other teams in the same division had zero.

Take Note

The NFL 2020 regular season will begin on Thursday, September 10th, 2020. The NFL 2020 regular season will end following Week 17. The end date is Sunday, January 3rd, 2021.
