NFL100 Game of the Week schedule announced

By Kevin Kelley -

The NFL has announced the NFL100 Game of the Week schedule, which features one game each week of the 2019 season.

The 2019 season marks the 100th in NFL history, and the league plans to celebrate NFL100 throughout the entire season.

As part of the celebration, the NFL has selected one game to feature as part of NFL100. These contests “…will be a nod to a momentous game played, a fierce rivalry that spans decades, a matchup of original teams and/or a game in which history was made.”
