How the NFL Schedules Its Games
If you’re not a football fan, you might be wondering when the NFL schedules its games. In general, marquee matchups usually air during the week’s prime time slots. This includes Thursday, Sunday and Monday night games. In addition, the NFL will schedule the Super Bowl champion at home in the season opener.
Week 10 of the NFL season
The NFL regular season is halfway through, and there are still nine weeks to settle playoff races in both conferences. This week’s slate of games features a bye week for the New England Patriots and a bye for the Baltimore Ravens. The week also features primetime games and international matchups.
The Miami Dolphins, who opened as a 4-point home favorite on Sunday, have fallen to -3.5, according to the most popular sports betting sites. Despite this, the Dolphins offense is still clicking on all cylinders. In the passing department, Miami has a top-five ranking, led by wide receiver Tyreek Hill, who has 1,104 yards on 100 targets, and a touchdown rate of 15.4. Jayl Waddle is not far behind Hill in nearly every category.
Buffalo: After falling to the Jets in Week 9, the Bills will look to bounce back against the Vikings. However, their defense still has injuries. Cornerback Tre’Davious White and safety Jordan Poyer are both questionable for Sunday’s game. With their defense allowing the sixth-most rushing yards per game over the last three weeks, the Bills will have to do more to stop the Vikings.
Week 10 of the NFL season offers a few surprises. The Houston Texans have had several strong games this season, but they are a far cry from a Super Bowl. In addition to the Bengals’ win over the Carolina Panthers, the Panthers came out flat against the Cincinnati Bengals. Their offense couldn’t come out of the locker room to stop the Bengals. Xavier McKinney is also out for a week because of an injury.

The Chiefs and Jaguars are both 13-3, and they’ll be tough test for either. Neither team is overly impressive, but it’s still possible to pick a winner. The Titans should have a few players back in the lineup. However, they’re not favored to win the AFC South.
In another game that was decided before the end of regulation, the Philadelphia Eagles were upended by the Washington Redskins. This was a game that could have ended in a tie if the Philadelphia Eagles had played their best football. They got off to a good start, but lost a key play when they lost a fumble.
In Week 10, Ryan Tannehill is expected to return from an ankle injury and will face the Denver Broncos. The Tennessee Titans opened up at -3, but moved to a cheaper -2.5 on Sunday. The total dropped to 36.5 points and has since gone up to 39.5. On DraftKings, 78% of bets were on Tennessee heading into the weekend.
Which teams are playing on Sundays
There are two major divisions in the NFL: the AFC and the NFC. Both divisions are composed of four teams. The schedule for these divisions is based on interconference rotations and team standings in the previous season. This system has been in place since 2021, the last year of regular season expansion. Each team is scheduled to play the other three teams in its division twice, as well as the other four teams in the other division. In addition to these games, each division also plays one game against one team from the other division.
There are 12 games on Sunday this season, including two games featuring divisional rivals. The season begins with the Bills-Rams matchup, one of the top Super Bowl contenders. The schedule also features several interdivisional matchups, including Raiders-Chargers and Packers-Vikings. The season will also feature Russell Wilson’s return to Seattle after being traded to Seattle this offseason.
Sunday games are broadcast on Fox and CBS. The majority of regular season games are played between 1 and 4pm ET. There are also marquee contests played in the late afternoon ET window. The NFL television contract award Fox and CBS the rights to show these games in the United States.
In addition to these primetime games, CBS and NBC have added new talent to their broadcast teams. Cris Collinsworth will remain the color analyst and Mike Tirico will take on the role of lead play-by-play man. Melissa Stark will join as sideline reporter. In addition, NBC will now air Sunday Night Football every week of the regular season. It will also air the Vikings at Patriots game on Thanksgiving.
