NFL got it’s way
Well it’s now official. The NFL owners have unanimously voted to add a 17th regular season game starting this coming season. This of course means the preseason will go from four to three games.
When it comes to the New York Giants their 17th game will be on the road against the Miami Dolphins.
Here are some things to keep in mind now that there are 17 regular season games.
- The only way a team can finish .500 is with an 8-8-1 record.
- Half of the teams in the NFL will have one extra home game and the other half will have an extra away game every season.
- The 2021 NFL regular season will end on January 9th.
- With an extra game, a lot of records will be broken. Whether it’s the most rushing and/or passing yards in a season or even the single season sack record.
- Every team in the NFL will play at least one international game every eight years starting in 2022.
We saw a few teams last season finish the regular season with a 10-6 record and not make the playoffs. Get used to teams finishing 10-7 or even 11-6 and not make the postseason.
I think this move is a greedy one for the NFL and it’s owners due to the fact that players already have a hard time getting through a 16 game season.
