The NFL plans to release the schedule for the 2020-21 season this week. According to The MMQB’s Albert Breer, the NFL may consider delaying the start to hold out hopes of playing in front of fans. “Two teams estimated to me that, on average, NFL clubs would lose about $100 million apiece in local revenue if the season was played without fans in the stands,” Breer said. The season is slated to begin on September 10th with 16 games in 17 weeks. The Super Bowl would be held February 7th. The NFL has been putting together a contingency plan in the event the coronavirus pandemic is not under control in time.
