NFL Considers Adding 17th Game to Regular Season
always seem to want more pro football. Yet it’s the folks abroad who might be
getting an extra taste of the NFL in the future. Although talks are extremely
preliminary, the NFL is investigating adding a 17th regular-season game and
playing it outside the
States. The extra game would take the place
of one in the preseason, allowing every team to play once abroad without
sacrificing a home match.
This year, the Dolphins gave up a home date in
Miami to play the New York Giants at Wembley Stadium in London. Two
years ago, the Arizona Cardinals played a home game in Mexico City
against the San Francisco 49ers.
