We here at Battle Red Blog have been diligently working to try and figure out when the NFL would release the 2021 regular season schedule. First it was rumored that it would happen after the draft, like last year. Then it was made official, with our inside sources guessing expecting it would be released on Thursday, May 6th. Since then, we have made phone call after phone call, been out to lunch after lunch (always paying the bill), and finally, all the hard work has paid off.

We have learned from our sources that the NFL regular season schedule will in fact be released on the night of Wednesday, May 12th.

We definitely knew this before Adam did. The tweet is here simply for the purpose of this article and our reporting.

On May 12th, tune into the NFL Network. They’ll have a big reveal show. There will be analysis from analysts. What does the seventeenth game mean?!? How much of an effect does an early bye week have?!? The television schedule will be scrutinized. Calendars will be tattooed. Tickets will be bought.

And the Texans will learn they will get one, only one, nationally televised game.

Mark your calendar so you can mark your calendar. The 2021 NFL schedule will be released on Wednesday, May 12th.
