It's now official: the NFL will expand the regular-season slate to 17 games (and 18 weeks -- still one bye). The additional game will be a matchup against a team from the other conference that finished in the same place (1st vs. 1st, 2nd vs. 2nd, etc.) and conferences will alternate hosting that additional game every year.

The preseason schedule has been cut from four to three games per franchise.

Based on 2020 final results, the Pittsburgh Steelers will have the league's most difficult schedule in 2021 and Philadelphia Eagles will have the easiest.
