One of the first things that any NFL fan checks out when taking a look at the NFL Football schedule is when their team will have a bye week. We have published the 2016 NFL bye weeks below for fans to use to help plan out their respective team’s path to the 2017 Super Bowl. The NFL regular season schedule is 17 weeks in length, and each team plays during 16 of the 17 weeks with the “Bye Week” being planned by the NFL to occur sometime between week 4 and week 13 of the regular season. Historically, the bye week provides teams with the chance to rest their players, give them some days off during the grueling season, and get ramped up for the remainder of the games on the schedule on what fans hope is a path to the NFL Playoffs. If you would like to check out the schedule of your favorite team, we have them all posted here to include those of the defending Super Bowl Champion, Denver Broncos, and the Carolina Panthers. Let’s play some football!
