2014 NFL Schedule: When is your team's bye week?


With the NFL schedule released Wednesday night, fans now have the opportunity to pick apart when teams square off, who faces an uphill battle, when rivalry games take place and whether or not their favorite team has a favorable stretch to the season.

However, as former offensive lineman and current media personality Ross Tucker pointed out Wednesday, the players actually care very little about the schedule.

Players rarely focus on more than the next game -- they have coaches and scouts to worry about the rest. So, aside from an occasional grudge match, knowing in April who they play in Week 4 is of little concern to the men on the field.

What part of the schedule do they care about?

Bye weeks.

Players -- like most employees -- what to know when they have vacation time.
