NFL schedule: Jews won’t be happy about High Holiday start date

Wire and staff report

On Rosh Hashanah, according to the liturgy, our fate is written in the Book of Life.

But Jewish football fans may be spending the holiday thinking about something else: the NFL opening games they are missing.

The 2015 NFL schedule was released on Tuesday, April 21 and the season kickoff for most of the league is on Sunday, Sept. 13, which is the first night of Rosh Hashanah. That includes the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, which opens its season at home at 4:25 p.m. against the Tennessee Titans.

New York area fans may be most disappointed as they prepare to go to synagogue – the Giants play on Sunday night at 8:30, while South Florida Jews may be the most pleased since the Dolphins play an away game against Washington at 1 p.m.

There are also two Monday night games that coincide with the first full day of Rosh Hashanah. The Philadelphia Eagles play the Falcons in Atlanta at 7:10 p.m. and the Minnesota Vikings vs the 49ers kick off in San Francisco at 7:10 p.m., Pacific time.
