The 2023 NFL schedule is officially out. Here are the 10 best games for fans to look forward to when the new season kicks off in September.

There are milestones in the long NFL offseason. The league has smartly spread them out to ensure they are relevant throughout the calendar year, including a recent decision to push the release of the NFL schedule from April until mid-May.

The official schedule release has arrived, allowing fans to plan road trips to visit NFL cities and see when the top Super Bowl contenders are coming to town. Most of the league’s 272 regular season games over the 18-week season have intrigue but these 10 are most worth circling on the calendar.

10. Best Games On The 2023 NFL Schedule — San Francisco 49ers at Seattle Seahawks in Week 12

One of the NFL’s best rivalries of the 2010s was San Francisco and Seattle, which famously went toe-to-toe for NFC supremacy in the early part of the decades. The rivalry gained new life last season as both teams made the playoffs and played a Wild Card game that San Francisco ran away with on their way to the NFC Championship Game.

The two teams seem to take the intensity up a level when they play in Seattle in front of the 12th Man at Lumen Field, one of the league’s most rowdy fan bases. Seattle is a very difficult place to play and seeing how the Seahawks look to get revenge for their playoff exit will be must-see TV in the fall.
