Each NFL team is scheduled to play two home games and two road games in the season's first four weeks. The schedule lends itself, in that way, to being adjusted if needed.— MarkMaske (@MarkMaske) May 8, 2020
More flexibility? No divisional games in Weeks 3 and 4. Each team plays one home game and one road game in Weeks 1 and 2. If a 14-game season is needed, keep Weeks 1 and 2 and cut Weeks 3 and 4? That keeps divisional games intact, gives each team seven home and seven road games.— MarkMaske (@MarkMaske) May 8, 2020
With that structure, the first four weeks of the season could be canceled if needed and each team would have a 12-game season with six home and six road games. Or the first four weeks could be put at the end of the season if needed, making for a delayed but full 16-game season.— MarkMaske (@MarkMaske) May 8, 2020
NFL's Troy Vincent to NFL Network: “The plan is to move forward as normal to play a full season, a full schedule, until the medical community tells us otherwise. And that’s been our approach from Day 1 is… let’s just make sure we’re responsible..." (cont'd)— MarkMaske (@MarkMaske) May 8, 2020
(more Troy Vincent to NFL Network): "... We’re doing proper planning.… Any guidelines as it pertains to what the governors’ orders are for the stay-at-home policies, let’s just make sure that we’re aligned [and] we’re following those guidelines.”— MarkMaske (@MarkMaske) May 8, 2020
The Vikings-Saints game on Christmas Day gives the NFL a rare Friday game. It's the NFL's first Friday game since Christmas 2009, according to the league.— MarkMaske (@MarkMaske) May 8, 2020
Discussion among NFL teams on clustering inter-conference games, backloading division games didn't come to pass. There are collapsible elements to the schedule (all teams share a bye with their Week 2 opponents).— Albert Breer (@AlbertBreer) May 8, 2020
All shows this a preference: moving back things over shortening.
Easiest schedules in 2020:— Gil Brandt (@Gil_Brandt) May 7, 2020

5. Redskins (.465)
Brady Effect: Buccaneers have a franchise-record five primetime games in 2020, tied with seven other teams for most this season. Bucs went 7-9 last year, while none of the other seven teams had losing records in 2019. Tampa Bay had a league-low 17 primetime games from 2005-‘19.— Adam Schefter (@AdamSchefter) May 8, 2020
Before assessing 2020 strength of schedule based on 2019 records, go back and compare 2019 records to 2018 records.— ProFootballTalk (@ProFootballTalk) May 7, 2020
Chase Young says his mentality is different since getting drafted.— Kyle Stackpole (@kylefstackpole) May 8, 2020
"Every situation that comes to me now is just, 'go and be different,' knowing the job I have to do."
Chase Young responds: "He probably didn't like my style of dancing." https://t.co/lrTGHKU6iF— Kyle Stackpole (@kylefstackpole) May 8, 2020
Of all of the past Ohio State pass-rushers, Meyer said Chase Young might have the best "God-given skills."— Kyle Stackpole (@kylefstackpole) May 8, 2020
Peterson said he's given his number to all of the other #Redskins running backs and said to call/text him anytime.— Kyle Stackpole (@kylefstackpole) May 8, 2020
Said he's "still waiting on young Guice" to come to Houston to work out.
Asked around about this ... an NFL team reporting to camp requires, bare bones (coaches, players, docs, trainers, cafeteria personnel) 150 people. Will every state allow gatherings of that size by late July? Stay tuned. https://t.co/R2urP82MHB— Albert Breer (@AlbertBreer) May 8, 2020

Despite speculation, I'm told people inside #Redskins park don't expect another reshuffle of staff/titles before the start of the 2020 season at least.
Kyle Smith will stay as 'VP of Player Personnel'. For now.

I think this is going to improve once he can practice. He seems like a dedicated person. I think he'll improve once he can practice with NFL coaches.— James FitzGerald (@GMDfitz7765) May 7, 2020
1 out of 16. ♂️— John Keim (@john_keim) May 7, 2020

I think the correct answer is 2 of 17 amiright?— Morgan Felty (@MorganFelty) May 7, 2020
1. Love this in general.— Nick Korte (@nickkorte) May 7, 2020
Only quibble is with the precise number of 224.
It could be a typo of sorts, in assuming 7 rounds of 32 teams = 224 picks. But there's actually 8 rounds, with 1 dispersed as compensatory picks into the other 7, for a total of 256 (less forfeited picks). https://t.co/el11FsePwi
The National Labor Relations Board has dismissed Russell Okung’s charge against the NFL Players Association, according to a letter obtained by NFL Network.— Tom Pelissero (@TomPelissero) May 7, 2020
Okung has until May 20 to appeal, and a source close to him said an appeal is likely.
NFL Competition Committee Chairman Rich McKay confirms to @SiriusXMNFL that pass interference penalties will NOT be reviewable again in 2020. “We’re not going to vote on - because nobody is putting forward - the OPI/DPI review again."— Field Yates (@FieldYates) May 7, 2020
