We are just one week away from the 2018 NFL Draft and a few months away from the start of the league’s regular season, but on Thursday, April 19 the National Football League gave us a look ahead at what we can expect when the new year kicks off with the release of the NFL schedule. Earlier this month, the NFL released its preseason schedule which kicks off with the Hall of Fame Game between the Chicago Bears and Baltimore Ravens. Thursday night, the schedule for the regular season was dropped live on ESPN and the NFL Network.
This year, the primetime kickoffs will begin earlier than in the past.
Monday Night Football will move up 15 minutes to 8:15 p.m. ET, Sunday Night Football will begin ten minutes earlier at 8:20 p.m. ET, and Thursday Night Football will move back five minutes to 8:25 p.m. ET. The league will also kick off the new year with its traditional Monday Night Football doubleheader.
Four games will be played internationally, with three in London and one in Mexico City.
Teams making the international trips include the Jacksonville Jaguars, Kansas City Chiefs, Los Angeles Chargers, Los Angeles Rams, Oakland Raiders, Philadelphia Eagles, Seattle Seahawks, and Tennessee Titans.
- Seattle Seahawks vs. Oakland Raiders, Tottenham Stadium, Oct. 14 at 1:00 p.m. ET (FOX)
- Tennessee Titans vs. Los Angeles Chargers, Wembley Stadium, Oct. 21 at 9:30 a.m. ET (CBS)
