The day you’ve all been waiting for is here! The NFL has officially released the date of the NFL schedule release! Okay, well, the NFL does like to build up everything, including the dates to learn more dates and so on, but now it is official. At some point on Wednesday, May 12, the NFL will release the 2021 NFL schedule. We’ll probably have another major announcement of the exact time of the release. Stay tuned!

We already have the list of teams each franchise will face this season, but the order, including bye weeks, for this season’s new 17-game schedule will be a useful kernel of knowledge in helping evaluate the upcoming season. By May 20th the 2021 NFL Draft will be done and we should have a good idea of the bulk of each team’s starters. As always, the NFL takes no vacations and doesn’t skip any chance to pump up the league!
