NFL, schedule
Kirby Lee-USA TODAY Sports

The 2020 NFL schedule will be released Thursday evening during a three-hour prime-time event on NFL Network.

The league is looking to take advantage of the fact that no real live sports are going on right now outside of the MMA. It did well during the 2020 NFL Draft, which was held last month in an all-virtual format.

One has to wonder if Thursday’s show draws as much appeal from fans starving for sports during the ongoing pandemic.

As for the teams themselves, they are super pumped.
