There are only 50 days until the NFL kicks off the 2020 season.
And 53 until the Eagles open in DC against the team formerly known as the Redskins.
The 2020 NFL season is scheduled to start on Sept. 10, when the Houston Texans visit the Super Bowl champion Kansas City Chiefs at 8:20 p.m. ET on NBC.
With the NFL and NFLPA in agreement that there will be no preseason games played due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the season-opener will be the first NFL game played since the Super Bowl.
With the league and union still discussing the particulars of training camp and how the ramp-up period will work, we still don’t know exactly how many padded practices players will get in before the season starts.
Many questions are left to be answered in the next 50 days, but in just over seven weeks, football will finally be back.
