What to know for the 2021-2022 NFL season

A new NFL season begins where the Tampa Bay Buccaneers will seek to repeat the championship with the same squad.

For this year, the league and the players’ union agreed to increase the regular season games per team from 16 to 17, which will be held in 18 weeks, giving each team a week off.

For the second year in a row, a 14-team postseason will be played, 7 for each conference. Only the top seed from each conference will receive a week off.

Changes in the numbering system

Starting this season, the numbering system for players changes slightly, which depends on the player’s position. Adopt a system similar to college football. So we will see linebackers with the number 11, receivers using the number 1 among others. The assignment looks like this:

o Quarterbacks and kickers: 1-19;

o Corners and depths: 1-49;

o Running backs, fullbacks, tight ends and wide receivers: 1-49 and 80-89;

o Offensive linemen: 50-79;

o Defensive linemen: 50-79 and 90-99;

o Supporters: 1-59 and 90-99.

Most important movements

This break saw a lot of QB changes:

o Matthew Stafford arrives at the Los Angeles Rams who traded him for Jared Goff.

o Carson Wentz came to the Indianapolis Colts in a trade with the Philadelphia Eagles, who will stay with Jalen Hurts.

o Sam Darnold goes to the Carolina Panthers. while Teddy Bridgewater will continue his career with the Denver Broncos.

Among the most important retreats we have those of Drew Brees, Philip Rivers, Julian Edelman, Mike Pouncey, Demaryius Thomas, Adam Vinatieri, Jason Witten and Tamba Hali.

New coaches

Seven teams changed coaches for this season, highlights the arrival of the legendary Urban Meyer to the Jacksonville Jaguars and who added 17 years as head coach of several college teams and won three national titles.

At 65, David Culley arrives at the Houston Texans, becoming the oldest coach to debut as head coach in the NFL.

Additionally, the Denver Broncos launched a new general manager after the resignation of John Elway, after 10 years in the position and who will continue as president of operations.

Diversity and inclusion

The NFL continues with programs that help strengthen diversity, equality and inclusion to job positions within the league, aimed at developing the careers of many women in American football. Before 2017, only one woman held a full-time position. With the result of these programs in the last 5 years, 186 opportunities were created for women at the collegiate and professional level, 30 of them occupied places in the NFL.

As a result of these programs, in the 2021 break, the Washington Football Team hired Natalia Dorantes as the organization’s program coordinator, a position that reports directly to Ron Rivera. Dorantes is the first Latina to land such a role in the NFL.
