The NFL announced on Wednesday that it will release the full 2021 schedule on May 12. The league will do so, of course, with a prime time show on NFL Network, as it does each year.

In addition to the 17 regular-season games, we’ll also find out the dates and times of the Rams’ three preseason games.

The regular season is scheduled to begin on Sept. 9 with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers likely to open the year on Thursday night at home as the defending Super Bowl champions. The season will end on Jan. 9, 2022, which is the result of the NFL adding an extra regular-season game for each team.
