NFL schedule release 2021: Questions yet to be answered (and some that have been)

With the addition of a 17th game, the regular season ends well after the New Year started with a double header on Saturday January 8th, 13 games a day on Sunday January 9th, and a night game on that day above. King reports that the teams involved in the Saturday and Sunday evening games are not notified of their participation until the week before in order to select the most important matchups for those time slots. When the schedule is posted on Wednesday there will be a list of games for week 18 but no dates or times.
