All major sports and events have been postponed or canceled to help slow the spread of COVID-19. It's not yet clear what effect the virus will have on the NFL's schedule, but it appears that the league is pressing forward with a standard season schedule for now.
The NFL preseason traditionally kicks off with the Hall of Fame Game from Canton during the third week of July, then the regular season starts the second week of September.
The league did already say that international games will be canceled and rescheduled in the U.S.
