Best Answer

A season in the NFL comprises a five-week period of preseason games, a regular season encompassing 17 weeks (16 games plus one bye week per team), and four weeks of playoffs. An NFL regular season of four months is shorter than Major League Baseball (six months) and the National Hockey League (22 weeks).
