The NFL Season Is Now Officially 17 Games

Videos by OutKick

The NFL is now officially locked in for a 17-game regular season, and we don’t know how to feel about it.

On one hand, we have more football, which is always a good thing, but what are the unintended consequences? Some would argue another football game means more money, and it does, which is why they are doing it. However, a longer season also means injuries will pile up, which should probably worry fans.

How could injuries not increase? The average football career lasts just four seasons, and that number will likely be affected by today’s changes.

Now the Jags can go 0-17 with Trevor Lawrence and unfortunately some poor fanbase (likely the Jets) can watch an extra football game with Sam Darnold in it. Good grief.
