This one. Its a perfect idea. As long as there is an extra bye week. Can coordinate it around international and/or thursday night games. More real football, less preseason games.

 

LOVE IT!

I see some fans still dont get what the preseason is for and why its important.  Oh well.

Just another step in the further decline of the NFL product.

How long untll the NFL adds microtransactions during NFL broadcasts?

the extra game would have be on a neutral site, right? 8 home 8 away 1 neutral. that would be fair. I wonder how they would decide on who plays who tho prolly use some kind of rotation

That's a slick idea - Cowboys/Texans played in San Antonio or something. Teams going to Mexico or London don't lose a home game.

So, that's something. I'm not in love with the idea, but I don't hate the idea either.

Texans/Cowboys in Mexico City

I like it the way it is now, but lets just entertain the idea.

Remove 2 preseason games. +1 regular season game +1 bye week.  Every team plays 8 home games, 8 away games, and 1 neutral site game.

I don’t enjoy watching preseason much but I think it’s a massive part in getting a feel for fringe starters/backups/bubble players.

The owners could make more money by keeping the schedule at 16 regular season games, and adding a bye week.  Reduce the preseason to 3 games.  We still watch football when our favorite team is not playing, so increased revenue.  Also, expand rosters and allow everyone to suit up on game day.

Extra byes have annoying fantasy football implications.

Theres absolutely nothing wrong with the 16 game schedule as is.

Stop fixing what ain’t broke.

Going back to 14 games makes way more sense. Has nothing to do with records.

The players don't want it. The fans don't want it. Yeah... it's happening...

They can’t. Think of numbers geeks out there.

They have 32 teams in 8 divisions, playing 16 games in such a way each team plays each other team at least once every 4 years. If they spoil that I might actually cry.
