With the holiday season comes more football. The NCAA is in the middle of bowl season with games played every day the week after Christmas, and the NFL has also expanded its schedule. We had a Week 15 game on Saturday night between the New England Patriots and the Indianapolis Colts, then a Christmas doubles schedule the following week. However, the league is taking a hiatus from Saturday’s games in Week 17.

In fact, for the first time in all of the season, the NFL will play all of its games on Sunday, with a clash on Monday night. There is no “Thursday night football” and no special Saturday game like we have had in the past two weeks. However, that won’t be the case for the final week of the NFL regular season: week 18.

With the playoff race reaching a boiling point, the NFL will offer a doubles schedule on Saturday night, January 8. These matches have not yet been announced. The clashes will be picked after this week’s action, and both games are sure to have massive playoff implications. The rest of the Week 18 roster takes place the following day Sunday, including a TBA prime-time game that will officially end the 2021 regular season.
