On May 11, the 2023 NFL schedule will be released: Here is what we know about the schedule of games for this year.

The official date has finally been established, so if you’ve been waiting patiently for the NFL schedule to be revealed, you won’t have to wait much longer.

The 2023 schedule will be unveiled on May 11 at 8 p.m. ET, according to the league. On Monday, there were rumors that the scheduled release would be put off until the following week, but that won’t be happening.

The greatest difference in this year’s schedule release is that the NFL will announce a number of games before May 11.

On May 10 on NFL Network and ESPN, the 10 teams participating in the five overseas games will be revealed. We already know that the Patriots and Chiefs will each host a game in Germany, while the Bills, Titans, and Jaguars will each host a game in London.
The NFL will play a Black Friday game for the first time ever, and on May 10, Amazon will reveal the two teams involved.
On May 10, CBS and Fox will each reveal a few particular specific games. The Fox announcement will air on “Fox and Friends,” but the CBS announcement will air on “CBS Mornings.”

On May 11, ABC and NBC will each release a number of games that will show on respective networks, bringing an end to the early announcements. While NBC will make their news on “The Today Show,” ABC will do it on “Good Morning America.”
The schedule will be made available in 2023, which will be the fourth year in a row that it does so. Prior to 2020, the NFL schedule was typically announced in April, but due to the epidemic, the date was changed to May. The NFL has opted to remain with the May release date because it liked it so much.

The later release date allows the league more time to make decisions in case there are any significant offseason changes, and this year, the league absolutely needed that extra time. Aaron Rodgers was traded in late April, which undoubtedly had a significant effect on the calendar. The Jets will almost probably receive their full allocation of prime-time games this season with Rodgers in the mix.

Here are some details we already know about the timetable as of Thursday’s announcement:

Thursday night opener in Kansas City.The season opener is always hosted by the club that won the most recent Super Bowl, so unless something unexpected happens, the Chiefs will be playing at home on Thursday night. The NFL will have a ton of exciting matchups to pick from, including a potential Super Bowl rematch with the Eagles or an AFC title game rematch with the Bengals, thanks to their home schedule, which includes the Broncos, Raiders, Chargers, Bills, Bengals, Dolphins, Bears, Lions, and Eagles. The league might find it appealing to send Josh Allen and the Bills to Kansas City for the first game. The Chargers, Raiders, and Broncos won’t likely play in Kansas City in Week 1 since the NFL often attempts to avoid scheduling divisional matchups in the opening weekend.
Monday nights will be changing.The new media deal, which will bring about some new adjustments, will start in the 2023 season. Games on Monday nights will be affected by two of those modifications. In addition to the THREE Monday doubleheaders that will take place this year (up from ONE last season), the NFL will also be able to flex Monday games beginning in Week 12 of 2023.

Christmas tripleheader that will make history.This year, the NFL intends to dominate Christmas by hosting a tripleheader on December 25 for the second consecutive year. Due to the fact that Christmas falls on a Monday, the first Monday tripleheader in NFL history will be played.

Teams could be given two Thursday games. Starting with the 2023 season, teams will be permitted to play two short-week games thanks to a rule that the NFL owners passed in March. Several teams may end up playing numerous games this season with just three days of rest, according to this.

Every home-and-away opponent for all 32 teams.This year’s games’ times and dates have not yet been determined, but we do know who each team’s opponents will be.

The NFL schedule announcement has grown to be a significant offseason event for the league, and this season is no exception. Pete Prisco, Bryant McFadden, Danny Kanell, Brady Quinn, and Todd Fuhrman will all be breaking down the schedule on Thursday starting at 8 p.m. ET on CBS Sports HQ.
