Predicting what an 18-game schedule could look like for the NFL, Redskins

The 2019 NFL season continues to churn along and as it progresses deeper into the schedule, we will have cooler weather with more touchdowns, interceptions, field goals, impressive catches, turnovers, and bone-crushing tackles. Teams will win. Teams will lose. After winter arrives, a new Super Bowl champion will be crowned and the league will be closer to a brand new CBA.

Fans tend to dread the negotiations between owners and players for one simple reason – a work stoppage may occur and a Fall without pro football is simply excruciating. The owners and players have plenty to focus on in the new CBA, but the biggest bargaining chip of all is the possibility of going to an 18-game schedule.
