America’s most popular professional sports league is adding another week of action to its regular-season schedule, but not everyone in the NFL is rejoicing.
The NFL announced Tuesday that its 2021 regular season will feature all 32 teams playing 17 games, up from 16, for the first time. The 2021 preseason will be reduced from four games to three to ensure the new playing schedule adheres to the terms of the most recent collective bargaining agreement between the league and the players union.
