The NFL season is just around the corner and we can’t wait! What week of the season are you most looking forward to?
The Start of the Season
Football fans rejoice, the NFL season is finally here! After months of waiting, the season opener is finally here. This is the time when all 32 teams start equal and have a chance to win the Super Bowl. Every team has new players, new coaches, and new expectations. This is the time when anything is possible.
The National Football League preseason is the period each year during which NFL teams play several not-for-the-record exhibition games before the regular season starts. Beginning with the Pro Football Hall of Fame game in early August, five weekends of preseason games are currently played in August and early September. The preseason schedule gets underway with four games on the opening Thursday night of the season, typically two weeks before the first Sunday of the season.
Preseason results are generally not as important as those from the regular season, as most starters play very little. The majority of playing time is given to young players looking to make the team or veterans fighting for a roster spot. However, many coaches use the preseason to determine which players will start once the real games begin.
The Regular Season
The National Football League (NFL) regular season begins on the weekend following the Labor Day holiday (i.e., the first Sunday in September). The 16-game regular season is followed by a postseason tournament leading to the NFL’s championship game, the Super Bowl.
The midway point of the NFL season is when things really start to heat up. By this point in the season, we usually have a pretty good idea of which teams are contenders and which teams are Pretenders. This is the time when we start to see separation in the standings and the playoff picture starts to take shape. This is also the time when we start to see which players are having breakout seasons and which ones are falling off. So, let’s take a look at the midseason and what we can expect.
The Bye Week
The NFL bye week is one of the most important weeks of the season. It’s a chance for players to rest and recover from injuries, and it’s also a chance for teams to regroup and make adjustments. The bye week can be a make-or-break moment in the season, and it’s always a time when there is plenty of news and speculation.
The Trade Deadline
The NFL trade deadline is approaching and there are a few teams that are expected to be sellers. The most notable names on the trade block are Le’Veon Bell, WR DeVante Parker, and CB Aqib Talib. While it’s unlikely that all three will be traded, it’s still fun to speculate where they might end up.
The trade deadline is always a exciting time in the NFL, but this year there are a few extra storylines to keep an eye on. The first is obviously Le’Veon Bell and where he might end up. The second is the potential return of Josh Gordon to the Patriots. And the third is the race for the top pick in the 2020 NFL Draft.
So what week of the NFL season are you most looking forward to?
The End of the Season
The end of the NFL season is always bittersweet. On one hand, it’s exciting to see which team will be crowned the champion. On the other hand, it’s sad to see the season come to an end. However, there are a few things that make the end of the season the most exciting time of the year. Let’s take a look.
The playoffs are the most prestigious time of the NFL season. This is when the best teams in the league play for a chance to go to the Super Bowl. The playoffs are a single-elimination tournament that consists of six teams from each conference. The four division winners and two wild card teams compete in the playoffs. The playoff schedule is as follows:
Wild Card Weekend: The first weekend of the playoffs features four wild card games. These games are played on Saturday and Sunday, with two games on each day.
Divisional Playoffs: The divisional playoffs are played on Saturday and Sunday, with two games on each day. These games feature the four division winners.
Conference Championships: The conference championships are played on Sunday, with two games featuring the winners of the divisional playoffs.
Super Bowl: The Super Bowl is played on Sunday, with two teams competing for the championship.
The Super Bowl
For most NFL fans, the Super Bowl is the single most important game of the year. It’s the culmination of a long season of hard-fought battles, and it’s a chance for one team to prove that they’re the best in the league. It’s also a huge event, both for the teams involved and for the fans who get to watch it. There are usually plenty of parties and celebrations going on, and it’s a great time to be a football fan.
