Bigger and better than ever (maybe), it's the 2021 NFL schedule.

Thanks to an extra week installed in this year's schedule, there are now 272 regular-season games coming your way beginning in September. 

With games heading back to London, there are also a number of long, long football Sundays coming your way: For example, the Jets and Falcons will be in London in Week 5 for a 9:30 a.m. ET kickoff, meaning that, from start to finish, there could be 13 hours of football. Get yourself a comfortable couch.

Week 15 features five games that are not yet scheduled, and games could be flexed into late-season Monday night matchups thanks to a scheduling quirk the NFL is implementing this year.

All 272 games, with kickoff times and TV channels (where applicable), are below.

In the U.S., national and regional games can also be streamed on fuboTV (free trial). In Canada, all games can be streamed on DAZN (free trial).
