Regular Season

Under the Collective Bargaining Agreement signed in March 2020, the 2021 regular season is the first to be eligible to be expanded from 16 to 18 games. [74] Under the current NFL scheduling formula for a 16-game regular season, each team plays the other three teams in its own division twice. Additionally, one team plays all four teams in one division from each conference. The two remaining games on a team's schedule are against the two remaining teams in the same conference that finished in the same position in their respective divisions the previous season.
