Giants would get a trip down south in week 18
With rumors swirling over the past several years of the NFL possibly adding a 17th game to their season, there is a chance that it can happen for the 2021 season.
Peter King of “Football Morning in America” reported that a 17th game could end up being added to the schedule this coming season and is actually “highly likely.” right now.
The 17-game schedule is highly likely in 2021. No surprise there. TV partners and NFL schedulers are working under the assumption that the 17-game schedule (the way was paved for it last March when players approved a new CBA) will debut in 2021.
In case you’re wondering, if the NFL does indeed add a 17th game, the New York Giants would have to head down to Florida to face off against the Miami Dolphins in week 18.
I understand why the NFL wants to add more games (money) but it’s really not in the best interest of their players. They would be smart to remove at least one preseason game and add in another bye week to help the players recover throughout the season.
