The 2023 NFL season was the 104th season of the National Football League (NFL). The regular season began on September 7, 2023, with defending Super Bowl LVII champion Kansas City losing to Detroit in the NFL Kickoff Game, and ended on January 7, 2024.

The playoffs started on January 13 and concluded with Super Bowl LVIII, the league's championship game, at Allegiant Stadium in Paradise, Nevada, on February 11. Kansas City defeated San Francisco to become the first team since the 2004 New England Patriots to repeat as Super Bowl champions.

This was the first season since 1935 in which every team in a division (in this case the AFC North) finished with a winning record.

Player movement

The 2023 NFL league year and trading period began on March 15. On March 13, teams were allowed to exercise options for 2023 on players with option clauses in their contracts, submit qualifying offers to their pending restricted free agents, and submit a Minimum Salary Tender to retain exclusive negotiating rights to their players with expiring 2022 contracts and fewer than three accrued seasons of free agent credit. Teams were required to be under the salary cap using the "top 51" definition (in which the 51 highest paid-players on the team's payroll must have a combined salary cap). On March 15, clubs were allowed to contact and begin contract negotiations with players whose contracts had expired and thus became unrestricted free agents.

The following rule changes for the 2023 season were approved at the NFL Owners' Meeting on March 28:[79][80][81]

During the May Owners Meeting, the following bylaw and rule changes was made:[82]

Preseason

The majority of training camps opened on July 26. The preseason began on August 3 with the Pro Football Hall of Fame Game, in which Cleveland (represented in the Hall of Fame Class of 2023 by Joe Thomas) defeated the New York Jets (represented by Joe Klecko and Darrelle Revis).[83]

Regular season

The season was played over an 18-week schedule beginning on September 7. Each of the league's 32 teams played 17 games, with one bye week for each team. The regular season ended on January 7, 2024; all games during the final weekend were intra-division games, as it has been since 2010.

Each team played the other three teams in its own division twice, one game against each of the four teams from a division in its own conference, one game against each of the four teams from a division in the other conference, one game against each of the remaining two teams in its conference that finished in the same position in their respective divisions the previous season (e.g., the team that finished fourth in its division would play all three other teams in its conference that also finished fourth in their divisions), and one game against a team in another division in the other conference that also finished in the same position in their respective division the previous season.[84]

The division pairings for 2023 were as follows:[84]

Four intra-conference games
AFC East vs AFC West
AFC North vs AFC South
NFC East vs NFC West
NFC North vs NFC South

Four interconference games
AFC East vs. NFC East
AFC North vs. NFC West
AFC South vs. NFC South
AFC West vs. NFC North

Changes to flexible scheduling rules

As part of new media agreements that were signed by the networks in 2021, the league's flexible scheduling system expanded this season to include Monday Night Football games, and increased the amount of cross-flexing (switching) of Sunday afternoon games between CBS and Fox.[102][103][104][105] In May 2023, league owners passed flex scheduling rules for Thursday Night Football as well, only as a trial basis for this season. However, with no games being flexed in 2023, this rule will carry over to 2024.[106]

In 2023, any Monday Night Football game was allowed to be flexed between weeks 12 and 17, provided that the league announced its rescheduling no later than 12 days before the contests. For Sunday Night Football, no more than three games could be flexed between weeks 5 and 14, while any game between weeks 15 to 17 could be flexed; the league was required to give weeks 5 to 13 SNF games a 12-day notice, and weeks 14 to 17 a 6-day notice.[107][108] For Thursday Night Football, only two games could be flexed between weeks 13 and 17, teams were not allowed play two away TNF games during season, the same team could not be flexed into TNF both times, and the league was required to give a 28-day notice.[106]

CBS and Fox were still able to protect games from being moved, whether from a change to another network or a change of the Sunday afternoon time slot. When the initial season schedule was created, the two networks selected a limited amount of games involving a specific number of teams from their respective conference. Otherwise every game can be initially scheduled on any network regardless of conference.[103][109] After the season started, the two networks were allowed to protect one game each week from getting flexed.[104]

Notable events

Sale of the Washington Commanders

Josh Harris led a group that bought the Washington Commanders from Daniel Snyder for $6.05 billion.

After mounting pressure from other league owners to sell the franchise, Daniel Snyder hired BofA Securities in November 2022 to explore possible transactions.[211][212][213] He reached an agreement in May 2023 to sell the Commanders to a group headed by Josh Harris, owner of the NBA's Philadelphia 76ers and the NHL's New Jersey Devils, for $6.05 billion.[214] The group has 20 limited partners worth a combined $100 billion, including Mitchell Rales and Magic Johnson.[215][216] The sale was the highest price ever paid for a sports team and was unanimously approved by the NFL on July 20, 2023.[217][218]

Gambling suspensions

On April 21, the NFL suspended three players indefinitely (Detroit wide receiver Quintez Cephus and safety C. J. Moore, and Washington defensive end Shaka Toney), and two players for six games (Detroit wide receivers Jameson Williams and Stanley Berryhill) for violations of the league's gambling policy. Detroit later released Cephus and Moore.[219]

On June 29, the NFL suspended three additional players indefinitely (Indianapolis cornerback Isaiah Rodgers and linebacker Rashod Berry, and free agent defensive lineman Demetrius Taylor) for betting on league games in 2022. The league also suspended Tennessee offensive lineman Nicholas Petit-Frere for six games for violating the league's gambling policy by betting on non-NFL sports while at team facilities.[220] On July 24, Denver defensive lineman Eyioma Uwazurike was suspended indefinitely for violating the policy.[221]

On September 29, the NFL revised the gambling policy. Betting on NFL games will incur a minimum ban of one year, providing inside information will incur an indefinite ban with a one-year minimum, and match fixing or attempted match fixing will result in a lifetime ban. The penalties for betting on other sports at NFL facilities were reduced to a two-game ban for first-time offenders, a six-game ban for second-time offenders, and a minimum one-year ban for further infractions. This resulted in Williams and Petit-Frere being immediately reinstated.[222]

All players suspended indefinitely are allowed to apply for reinstatement after the 2023 season.

New media contracts

This is the first season under 11-year U.S. media rights agreements with CBS, Fox, NBC, and ESPN/ABC, renewing their existing regular season AFC, NFC, Sunday Night Football, and Monday Night Football packages, respectively, through the 2033 season. The contracts keep CBS, NBC, and ESPN's digital rights to stream their respective live games on their respective paid over-the-top subscription streaming platforms, Paramount+, Peacock, and ESPN+ (Fox does not have a dedicated paid streaming platform). Fox, NBC, and ESPN may continue to offer Spanish-language versions of their games on their respective Spanish-language outlets Fox Deportes, Telemundo Deportes, and ESPN Deportes (CBS does not have a specific platform for Spanish-language sports content, although it may continue to sub-license Spanish-language rights of its Super Bowl coverage).[303] Changes beginning this regular season include the following:[304][102][305][306]

Other media rights

Linear television

NFL Network continued to televise select regular season games, including four International Series games[90][311] and four late-season games.[312][313]

The 2023 season was the second season of scheduling three games on Christmas Day, consisting of an afternoon doubleheader split between CBS and Fox, and that week's Monday Night Football contest, which exclusively aired on ABC due to ESPN's coverage of NBA Christmas games;[101][314] with 27.2 million viewers, it was the second-highest rated Monday Night Football regular season broadcast since 1996.[315] CBS' game also featured a youth-oriented broadcast on sister network Nickelodeon for the second consecutive year. With New Year's Day falling on a Monday this season, the Monday Night Football game that weekend was played on Saturday, December 30, in deference to the New Year's Day college football bowl games.[101][314]

Originally, ABC was scheduled to air nine total games during the 2023 season, including 3 ESPN/ABC MNF simulcasts, the 3 total exclusive games during those weeks featuring MNF contests split between ABC and ESPN, the aforementioned Christmas night game, and the Week 18 doubleheader ESPN/ABC simulcast. On September 18, as part of schedule changes relating to the then-ongoing 2023 Hollywood labor disputes, ESPN announced that 10 MNF games that were originally going to be exclusive to ESPN would also be simulcast by ABC. This marked the first time since 2005 that ABC aired a full season of MNF.[316]

Streaming

This is the second season of a 12-year deal with Amazon Prime Video and Twitch to exclusively stream Thursday Night Football.[312][317][318] For 2023, flex scheduling has also been expanded to Thursday Night Football on a one-year trial.[106] In addition, Thursday Night Football added a late-afternoon game on the Friday after Thanksgiving; unlike the other TNF games, whose free broadcasts are exclusive to sister live streaming platform Twitch, this game was also carried for free within the main Amazon Prime Video platform. The games were also available to business establishments via DirecTV.[91][319][320][321]

This was the second season of a 12-year deal that ESPN+ exclusively streamed one game. The game was also available to business establishments on the ESPN+ for Business pacakge on DirecTV.[322][323][324] The game featured a youth-oriented alternate broadcast on ESPN+ and Disney+, using the league's player tracking data to render a live animated version of the game portrayed by characters from the Toy Story franchise.[325]

The league's streaming service NFL+ adds live access to NFL Network on its base tier and NFL RedZone on its premium tier. The service continued to live stream in-market regular season and postseason games on mobile devices only, radio broadcasts for all games, and most out-of-market preseason games on its base tier; and replays of all games and coaches film on its premium tier.[326][327]

Postseason

Three of the Wild Card games were aired by NBC, holding rights to the Saturday afternoon game under its annual rotation with CBS and Fox since 2020, the Sunday night game under the third year of a separate seven-year deal, and the Saturday night game—which will be streamed exclusively by Peacock under a one-year, $110 million deal. Peacock's game was sold on a stand-alone basis, as the league separated it from the broader TV rights deals.[328][329][330] This marked the first time that an NFL playoff game is exclusively carried nationally by a streaming platform.[331][332][333] ESPN/ABC entered its third year of their five-year deal for the Monday night Wild Card game,[305][306][334] and the remaining two Sunday afternoon games were carried by CBS and Fox.[305][306][309][335]

The four broadcast television partners will now each air one divisional playoff game per season. ESPN/ABC takes over the slot that was previously rotated between CBS and Fox.[305][336]

CBS will televise Super Bowl LVIII; in the annual rotation of Super Bowl broadcasters, they will be followed by Fox, NBC, and ESPN/ABC—who returns to the Super Bowl rotation for the first time since Super Bowl XL.[305][303] In May 2023, CBS announced that it had sub-licensed the Spanish-language rights for Super Bowl LVIII to TelevisaUnivision, replacing ESPN Deportes, who held the agreement for the three previous Super Bowl games aired by CBS.[303] For the first time, an alternate broadcast will also be produced for the Super Bowl, with CBS planning to produce a youth-oriented broadcast for Nickelodeon.[337]

NFL Sunday Ticket

For residential customers in the United States, this is the first season out of a seven-year deal that the NFL Sunday Ticket out-of-market sports package will exclusively be on YouTube TV, as well as on YouTube's Primetime Channels service as a standalone subscription option.[338] DirecTV declined to renew its exclusive rights to NFL Sunday Ticket, which it held since the package's debut in 1994.[339][340] YouTube TV will stream NFL RedZone instead of producing a separate version like DirectTV did.[341]

On March 28, 2023, the NFL announced that the commercial rights to Sunday Ticket would be held by EverPass Media, a new company funded by RedBird Capital and the NFL's venture capital arm 32 Equity. EverPass distributes NFL Sunday Ticket to bars, restaurants, and other commercial venues via non-exclusive agreements with existing cable and satellite providers.[342] EverPass reached its first agreement with DirecTV on May 25, 2023.[343]

Radio

This is the second season of the NFL's current radio contract with Westwood One, including rights to all primetime, marquee, and playoff games, along with audio coverage of other events such as the NFL draft and NFL Honors.[344]

Compass Media, ESPN Radio, and Sports USA continued to broadcast select Sunday afternoon games nationally on radio.

Personnel changes

Greg Gumbel retired from working NFL games on CBS after the 2022 season.[345] CBS replaced Gumbel on its roster of announcing teams with Chris Lewis, who was assigned to the number 7 broadcasting team with Jason McCourty and Ross Tucker. Other changes include Andrew Catalon being promoted to the number 4 team to replace Gumbel, joined by Atlanta Falcons legend Matt Ryan and Tiki Barber, Spero Dedes reuniting with Adam Archuleta on the number 5 team, and Tom McCarthy moving to the number 6 team with James Lofton and Jay Feely. Recently retired defensive end J. J. Watt joined The NFL Today studio team for select appearances.[346]

ESPN replaced Steve Levy with Chris Fowler on the number 2 team with Dan Orlovsky, Louis Riddick and Laura Rutledge during Monday Night Football doubleheaders and ESPN+ exclusive international games.[347] Scott Van Pelt replaced Suzy Kolber as host of Monday Night Countdown, where Steve Young and Booger McFarland were replaced by NFL Live's Marcus Spears and Ryan Clark.[348]

Al Michaels was replaced by Noah Eagle as the secondary play-by-play man for Sunday Night Football. 2023 marks the first time that Michaels did not call a single NFL game for NBC since it picked up the SNF package in 2006.[349]

In the United Kingdom, Sky Sports continued to broadcast two selected non-national games live every Sunday, one early and one late window game respectively. The Sky Sports Mix channel continued to air a live simulcast of NFL Network's NFL RedZone whip-around show.
