2010 NFL Schedule to be Released April 20th

The NFL will officially announce its 2010 schedule Tuesday April 20th the league said Wednesday.

The schedule release, which increasingly has become treated like a national holiday, will take place at 7 p.m. ET.

The release of this year’s schedule was delayed as the NFL considered whether to put more divisional games toward the end of the season.

Commissioner Roger Goodell has been concerned about teams that already have clinched division titles tanking games at the end of the season to rest their players for the playoffs. He wants all 17 weeks of the season to have competitive games.

The result of that effort will be revealed Tuesday, two days before the start of the NFL draft in New York.

ESPN will cover the schedule release live with a “SportsCenter Special,” beginning at 7 p.m. ET Tuesday on ESPN2. Coverage moves to ESPN at 9 p.m. ET.
