NFL fans and fantasy football fanatics alike received some exciting news this Tuesday morning, as we're now officially less than 36 hours away from learning each NFL team's 2019 regular-season schedule.

When Will the NFL Announce the 2019 Schedule?

The 2019 NFL regular-season schedule will reportedly be released live on NFL Network starting at 8 p.m. EST on Wednesday, April 17.

Back on March 25, the NFL announced Aaron Rodgers and the Green Bay Packers are traveling to Soldier Field to take on the Chicago Bears in the 2019 NFL season opener on Thursday, Sept. 5. The Bears opened as 4-point home favorites, according to FanDuel Sportsbook, but Chicago has since fallen to a 3.5-point favorite as of April 16.

March has become the NFL season's free-agency frenzy, while the month of April truly marks the early beginnings of the upcoming season, especially since the league moved the NFL Draft back into the last week of April following a one-year stint in early May back in 2014.

Regardless of which NFL team you root for, every NFL fan will know significantly more about his/her favorite team's future by the end of April.
