The 2021 NFL draft is in the books and as fans patiently wait for mini camp, training camp, and the preseason, the next biggest event produced by the NFL is their annual Schedule Release Show. This year, the release comes later than normal on Wednesday, May 12, 2020.
Additionally, the NFL is heading into uncharted territory as this will be the first season where teams will play 17 regular-season games. As a trade-off, the majority of teams will be scheduled for only three preseason games with the exception of the Pittsburgh Steelers and Dallas Cowboys who will be facing off in the Hall of Fame Game on August 5. With an odd number of games, teams will have either one more or one less home game based on a rotational schedule by conference. For 2021, the AFC will host the additional regular-season game while the NFC will host two of their three preseason games.
So you don’t miss the action, listed below is the schedule for the NFL Schedule Release Show and the various places you can watch the announcement.
