NFL to Revisit 18-Game Season in 2013?


According to Peter King of Sports Illustrated, the players won’t be happy to know that they might be forced into considering something they truly don’t want — the 18-game regular-season schedule — come 2013.

Pro Football Talk’s Mike Florio reported Sunday that the league could unilaterally cut the preseason schedule from four games to two in ’13 or any subsequent year of the agreement. The players would have the option to either play 16 regular-season games and two preseason games, or increase the regular season to 18 games per team. The upshot: Players would lose money if they stayed at 16 plus two.
