The NFL announced Sunday that the league is expanding its 2017 regular season to 30 games, giving fans a new way to get excited about the upcoming slate of games.
The league has also announced it will expand the regular season into the second half of the season, meaning fans will be able to tune in to watch the second halves of the playoffs.
The teams that will play in the first half of a regular season will be determined by the regular-season record of the teams in the second-half of the regular schedule, which will determine the order of the first-half games.
That means there will be an extra chance to see the best teams in a game that is already being televised.
The first-quarter schedule will also change.
Teams will play one regular-round game in each of their first two home games, but the final game will not be on the same day as the previous game.
For example, if the Packers play the Browns in Week 2, they will play the Vikings in Week 3 and the Patriots in Week 4.
In 2018, the NFL announced that teams will play four regular-seasons per year, and there will also be an expanded postseason schedule, with six teams competing in the Super Bowl and the NFL Championship Game.
