When does the 2024 NFL season start?

If you are currently asking when does the 2024 NFL season start you have come to the right place. The betting experts at TheLines will provide you information on all you need to know regarding the next pro football campaign. Updated information shows that the 2024 NFL season will start on Thursday, September 5.

The 2024 NFL season will start on Thursday, September 5

The 2024 NFL season will begin on that date with the defending Super Bowl champion Kansas City Chiefs facing a yet to be determined opponent. It is likely that the opponent will be announced during the middle of May when the NFL schedule is released. The NFL is also holding a Friday game during opening weekend this year as the Eagles will face the Packers in Brazil on September 6.

While this is technically the “2024” NFL season, regular season games will bleed into 2025. Week 18 of the schedule will be played entirely during the next calendar year. 

The first full Sunday of NFL action will take place on September 8. There will also be a Monday Night Football game played on September 9.

Rosters taking shape

The NFL Draft is still on the horizon but most of the big names in free agency have already signed with teams. Some of the biggest transactions of the early spring are as follows.

  • Kirk Cousins to the Falcons: Atlanta hasn’t had stability at the QB position since Matt Ryan was slinging darts but the Falcons now have their man in the form of Cousins.
  • Russell Wilson to the Steelers: The Steelers also have a new veteran quarterback as Wilson will play for his third NFL team.
  • Derrick Henry to the Ravens: Henry will give the Ravens a legit option in the backfield and John Harbaugh hopes he will provide the perfect complement to Lamar Jackson.
