The NFL is likely to expand its regular season schedule to 17 games per team next season, a move that would push Super Bowl 56 back a week to February 13, according to NBC Sports‘ Football Morning in America.
The February 13 date would be the latest yet for the Super Bowl. There had been considerable speculation that this past year‘s game would be pushed back due to COVID-19 concerns, but the entire NFL postseason was played as scheduled with no delays.
Daytona International Speedway already announced the 2021 Daytona 500 will be February 20. Pushing the Super Bowl back to February 13 would nearly insure that Daytona will again used a condensed Speedweeks schedule similar to this year.
