With the 2021 NFL Draft behind us, the next major event of the offseason is the NFL schedule release.

When Does the NFL Schedule Come Out?

The NFL schedule for the 2021 season is set to be released on Wednesday, May 12 at 8 p.m. EST. The official release show will be broadcast on NFL Network.

Of course, if you're hungry to get the info early, be sure to keep an eye on Twitter on May 12. Every year plenty of pieces of the upcoming schedule end up being leaked early.

This year's schedule release will be particularly exciting, as it will be the first release to include a 17-game regular season for each team.

When Does the 2021 NFL Season Start?

Even without the schedule being officially released, we know the first game of the season is expected to take place on Thursday, September 9.
