NFL is building contigencies into its 2020 schedule
The main idea seems to be building in the flexibility to delay the start of the season for a few weeks if necessary, even into October.

Quote:Two weeks of early-season games could be shifted wholesale to the end of the season. A third week would feature teams only playing opponents with the same bye week, so that week could be cut and byes eliminated leaguewide.

These contingency-laden plans also include cutting the weekend between the conference championships and the Super Bowl, where the Pro Bowl is typically played, to allow another week to be lost to delays. Under such a plan, the Pro Bowl would not be played.

Specific conversations have occurred with Tampa hosts about delaying the Super Bowl by one week to Feb. 14, but a source said the last two weeks of February are in play as well.

Sources caution that none of the plans are final, and nothing has been ruled out. All parties are aware that the season is still subject to major variables around the spread of the coronavirus by late summer, local regulations and medical progress against the disease.

FWIW, week 2 is the week in which every team is playing an opponent with the same bye week.

Presumably that means weeks 1 and 3 would become the last two weeks if the start of the season is delayed.
