NFL: regular season goes to 17 team games
In addition to the 17 games in the championship, each team will play three regular preseason games for the first time, which constitutes a change for a competition whose schedule had not been changed since 1978. This expected decision follows the agreements reached on the 18th March on television rights and streaming, for a record amount estimated at over $ 100 billion over eleven seasons. In particular, a prize was awarded to Amazon Prime Video for the broadcasting of the traditional Thursday night game.

The agreements reached on these rights and those on the collective agreement with the players will allow us to improve the quality of the NFL experience for our fans.« , welcomed the boss of the league Roger Goodell. And to add that »one of the advantages of moving to 17 team matches will be (for the league) the possibility of continuing to develop our sport all over the world« .
