INDIANAPOLIS (WTHR) - The NFL schedule is set - for now.

The NFL released the schedule for the 2020 season Thursday night, amidst uncertainty as to whether the COVID-19 pandemic will affect plans for a full 16-game season.

The Indianapolis Colts are set to open the season at Jacksonville on Sunday, September 13, three days after the league opens the season with its traditional Thursday night matchup.


The Colts open their home season in Week 2 against Minnesota. Their bye week is scheduled for Week 7 (October 25).

Indianapolis is currently scheduled to play one primetime game. They'll travel to Tennessee to face the Titans on November 12 as part of the Week 10 schedule.

The Colts have three games scheduled to start in the late afternoon and the date and time of their Week 15 home game against Houston is to be determined.

Indianapolis wraps up the slate at home against Jacksonville in Week 17, currently scheduled for January 3.

League spokesman Brian McCarthy told the Associated Press last week that the NFL plans to open the season as scheduled on Sept. 10 and end with the Super Bowl on Feb. 7.

But with the coronavirus potentially disrupting things, the season may have to be pushed back, perhaps leading to a Super Bowl in late winter 2021, according to AP. Games at empty stadiums and neutral sites may also be necessary and bye weeks may need to be eliminated.
