It's the time in the summer when I start coming down with a case of football fever. SKOL! This season the schedule has been expanded to 17 games.

The NFL has played a 16-game regular season since 1978, when it added two games to each team's schedule. That expanded to 17 last year. The number of preseason games is dropped from four to three in 2021 as well. Each team will still have one bye week during the season.

The Vikings will open the regular season with a good ol' fashioned NFC North smash-mouth matchup when the Vikings host the Green Bay Packers at U.S. Bank Stadium on Sunday, September 11th.

Another big matchup with potential playoff implications comes on the final week of the season when the Vikings travel to Green Bay to face the Packers at Lambeau Field for a Sunday night game on January 2nd.
