The 2021 NFL schedule is finally out, and so begins the bickering over which team deserves more/less primetime games than they got.

The schedule for the NFL’s first-ever 17-game regular season released yesterday. The season kicks off with the Cowboys traveling to Tampa to take of the defending champs, the Buccaneers.

2021’s season opener, as always, also marks the first of the year’s highly desired primetime games. Of course, each team gets the opportunity to play at least once in the primetime slot, but that’s where the parity ends.

Which Team Has the Most Prime-time Games in 2021?

Prime-time games are scarce (usually just 3 every week) and so must be allocated carefully. Usually the league does this primarily on the basis on the expected strength of the team and the size of the market.

Expectedly, this trend can be observed in this year’s schedule. The most primetime games any team received was 5. 10 teams- the Packers, Saints, Cowboys, Seahawks, Steelers, Ravens, Rams, 49ers, Chiefs and Bucs-will each have 5 night time games.

Moreover, the Saints and Cowboys will be playing on Thanksgiving and the Packers will take the field on Christmas. Trailing these teams, 5 franchises will play 4 primetime games.

Here is the complete order:
