NFL schedule release date when will released

The Super Bowl is not too far in the rearview mirror but many NFL fans and bettors are already starved for the product. The NFL schedule release has helped fill the gap during the spring as the league treats the whole ordeal as an event in and of itself. Last year the anticipation was so great that the league actually had an announcement about the announcement. The NFL announced the date of the schedule release three weeks ahead of the actual reveal. So when will the NFL schedule be released this year? Here we will have NFL schedule release date info and betting information for the coming season. We will also look at everything we know so far about the 2023 NFL schedule.

NFL schedule release date

Here is a look at a potential NFL schedule release date using all of the information we know so far. Roger Goodell’s minions spend weeks crafting the league schedule. Six executives create thousands of different schedules with the help of computers to finally land on the perfect version.

May 12 was the NFL schedule release date last year. Three weeks earlier, on April 21, the league announced that Thursday, May 12 would be the official day. 

There was, however, a trickle of special game dates released ahead of May 12. International games were announced in the weeks prior, as were other “island” games like Sunday Night Football, Monday Night Football and Thursday Night Football matchups. Several holiday matchups, like Thanksgiving Day games and Christmas Day games, were announced early as well.

Expect the NFL schedule release date 2023 to be on or around May 11

The NFL has seemingly settled in on early May as its schedule release time period. The NFL Draft takes place from April 27 – 29 in 2023 so expect another two week cushion between then and when the schedule will be released. Thursday, May 11 looks like a potential NFL schedule release date.

When will the NFL schedule be released?

Rosters are not yet close to being set but we do know some key games that will take place this upcoming season. Here are some of the more intriguing NFL games storyline-wise.

  • Broncos at Chiefs
  • Giants at Bills
  • Bills at Chiefs
  • Eagles at Chiefs
  • 49ers at Eagles

Sean Payton takes over as the head coach of the Broncos and will get a crack at the defending Super Bowl champion Chiefs twice this season.

Giants versus Bills will be intriguing as Brian Daboll returns to Orchard Park to face former pupil Josh Allen.

Bills versus Chiefs has been must-watch for several years now and Buffalo should be even hungrier to knock off Patrick Mahomes following another early playoff exit.

This season will give us a Super Bowl rematch as the Eagles seek revenge at the Chiefs. Philly will also host an NFC Championship game rematch as they’ll welcome the 49ers.
