EveryNFLteam gets one bye week a season -- a week where they don't play in a game, allowing time for players and coaches to regroup. Coaches typically use the time to reassess the game plan, while players use the time to rest and prepare for the next stretch of the season.

In 2023, the NFL bye weeks will occur from Week 5 to Week 14. There are no byes during Week 8 or 12. The number of teams on a bye during a given week will span from two teams (Week 6 and Week 14) to as many as six teams (Week 7 and Week 13) this season.

Whether you are curious about your favorite team's week off or need to know for planning for fantasy leagues, here is the 2023 bye week schedule:
