Starting with the 2021 season, the NFL regular season will now consist of 17 games (18 weeks). The extra game will feature "teams from opposing conferences that finished in the same place within their division the previous season".

 

In addition, the preseason has been reduced to 3 games per team.

With this formal announcement, Super Bowl LVI will now be played on February 13, which leads me to wonder whether NBC will have to trade another Super Bowl, presumably to FOX, as this will be during the second weekend of the 2022 Olympics.

That was the whole point for the trade with CBS to get 2022 Super Bowl, in coincide with the Winter Games.

 

They're going to air Super Bowl in between the olympic coverage on NBC. There'll be no retrading.

Wonder how that will work out television doubleheaderwise. Under the old format, CBS had 8 exclusive doubleheader Sundays, and Fox had 8 exclusive doubleheader Sundays, and week 17 was a doubleheader Sunday for both of them (giving them 9 total each).
