NFL schedule 2021: Date and time for every game of 2021 NFL season, including Cowboys-Buccaneers opener

News Post || News Now

The 2021 NFL season will be a historic one as we now know each team will play 17 games, it’s the Biggest Season Ever! The season, which will feature 18 weeks and 273 total games, will kick off with a juicy matchup as the defending Super Bowl champion Tampa Bay Buccaneers host the Dallas Cowboys in what will hopefully be Cowboys quarterback Dak Prescott’s return after a devastating injury in 2020. 

After a season of unknowns in 2020 due to COVID-19, the 2021 season will hopefully have fans in the stands at every stadium.

We dissected the schedule from every angle on CBS Sports HQ and CBSSports.com. For now, you can check out the full week-by-week schedule below.
