All good things must come to an end.

The same is true when it comes to another National Football League season, and it begins the long offseason during which we often count down the number of days until we will see a meaningful football game once again.

So when will the 2023 NFL season end? It kinda/sorta depends on your definition of "end"—and perhaps that also comes down to which team you are rooting for.

The NFL regular season typically ends in late December or early January, depending on the specific schedule for each year. The exact date varies from season to season due to factors such as the number of teams, the scheduling of games, and any adjustments made by the league. For example, some seasons are affected by COVID or the Damar Hamlin injury and force the league to make scheduling concessions.

Following the regular season, the NFL playoffs begin, culminating in the Super Bowl, which was usually held on the first Sunday in February. This year, however, Super Bowl LVIII will be held on Sunday, February 11 at Allegiant Stadium in Las Vegas, Nevada—home of the Raiders. This will be the first championship in Sin City.

The specific dates for the end of the regular season and the Super Bowl can be found in the official NFL schedule for each year.
