Roger Goodell Touts an 18-Game NFL Season. Getting There Won’t Be Easy

Apr 29, 2024

As hundreds of thousands of NFL fans were descending upon Detroit for the draft last weekend, and millions more were tuning in from their televisions, Roger Goodell casually dropped a huge piece of information Friday afternoon: his most vocal support yet for an 18-game regular season.

The comments, made during the commissioner’s debut appearance on The Pat McAfee Show, created plenty of headlines and had some fans and observers online assuming the expanded schedule was a done deal. “I’m not a fan of the preseason,” Goodell said while touting the benefits of an extra meaningful game each year in exchange for one less exhibition matchup.
