A 17-game schedule, the move that has been rumored for months, was finally approved by NFL owners at a virtual league meeting on Tuesday. The season expansion will go into effect this coming season.

According to the league, the 17th game will feature “teams from opposing conferences that finished in the same place within their respective divisions at the end of the previous season.”

The revised schedule has the Pittsburgh Steelers hosting the Seattle Seahawks in the 17th game.

Preseason games will drop to three from the current four, and each team will continue to have one bye week.
