Even though NFL Network is broadcasting the release of the 2020 NFL schedule on Thursday night, teams around the league were allowed to release their schedule in advance.
League spokesman Brian McCarthy had this to say:
“For the first time ever, each club may release its own game schedule on its owned and operated media platforms at 7:30 p.m. ET, 30 minutes before the NFL Network Schedule Release show begins at 8:00 p.m. … Clubs can choose to release their schedule in any appropriate way they choose, while prominently promoting the national NFL Network Schedule Release show to follow, during which the full schedule will be released, analyzed and discussed.”
That is exactly what happened, so check out when and where your teams will be playing during the 2020 NFL season.
As mentioned plenty of times before, none of this is set in stone as the world continues to deal with the ongoing coronavirus pandemic.
At least with the release of the schedules, fans can have something to look forward to and debates can rage on what team will win and lose x amount of games.
