2024 NFL schedule: How to see multiple games on one road trip this season

The east end zone bleachers at Cleveland Browns Stadium is known as the "Dawg Pound."

The 2024 NFL schedule is here! And with that, we can begin scouring it for potential multiple-game road trip opportunities this season.

Of the four major sports leagues, the NFL is the hardest in which to complete a stadium circuit due to the fact it has so few games each season relative to its peers. However, its relatively rigid schedule structure makes it very much possible to plan out multi-city road trips.

Of course, the easiest way to do that while saving time (and, thus, money) is to rely on the Sunday-Monday schedule, or Thursday-Sunday if you have more time on your hands.

So as we do every year, we’re going through the 2024 NFL schedule to pinpoint those chances to see multiple games in a week. We impose one limitation on these itineraries: They have to involve cities that are within a reasonable one-day driving distance of each other (maximum of 500 miles).

Here’s why: Of course you can go to just about any game you want on Sunday and then fly to the Monday-night home city, for example. But convenience is often a major factor in fans going on road trips to begin with, and limiting travel distance helps save time and money.

Whether you’re looking to check stadiums off your list or you just want travel to check out some of the best NFL games live, I hope this schedule breakdown will inspire you to hit the road in 2024! Keep reading to see all of our NFL itinerary ideas.

Week 1: Two season-opening ideas

Thursday, Sept. 5: Ravens at Chiefs, 8:20 p.m. ET
Sunday, Sept. 8: Titans at Bears, 1 p.m. ET


Sunday, Sept. 8: Raiders at Chargers, 4:05 p.m. ET
Monday, Sept. 9: Jets at 49ers, 8:20 p.m. ET

Right off the bat, a pair of cool road trip ideas present themselves on the 2024 NFL schedule. And every game involves an intriguing storyline.

Want to be there as the Chiefs celebrate their back-to-back Super Bowl titles at Arrowhead Stadium? You can attend the NFL’s traditional Thursday night opener, then take a couple days to travel to Chicago and catch No. 1 overall draft pick Caleb Williams’ debut at Soldier Field.

Or, hang out on the West Coast and watch Jim Harbaugh’s return to the pro ranks with the Chargers at SoFi Stadium, before heading to NorCal to see Aaron Rodgers redo his Jets debut as they take on the 49ers at Levi’s Stadium.

Distance between stadiums: 501 miles (KC to CHI); 351 miles (LA to SF)

Week 2: Pair of East Coast ideas

Thursday, Sept. 12: Bills at Dolphins, 8:15 p.m. ET
Sunday, Sept. 15: Browns at Jaguars, 1 p.m. ET


Sunday, Sept. 15: Giants at Commanders, 1 p.m. ET
Monday, Sept. 16: Falcons at Eagles, 8:15 p.m. ET

Another Thursday-Sunday idea keeps you in Florida during Week 2, or you can hang out on the Eastern Seaboard for a Sunday-Monday road trip.

The Dolphins are hosting the Thursday Night Football opener against the division rival Bills at Hard Rock Stadium, so you could start there and then make the trek up I-95 to Jacksonville and catch Jaguars-Browns at EverBank Stadium. Alternatively, you can see an NFC East tilt between the Commanders and Giants at Commanders Field before heading up to Philly to see the Eagles and Falcons at Lincoln Financial Field.

Distance between stadiums: 332 miles (MIA to JAX); 135 miles (WAS to PHI)

Week 3: An AFC tripleheader

Thursday, Sept. 19: Patriots at Jets, 8:15 pm. ET
Sunday, Sept. 22: Chargers at Steelers, 1 p.m. ET
Monday, Sept. 23: Jaguars at Bills, 7:30 p.m. ET

The 2024 NFL schedule presents its first road trip tripleheader opportunity in Week 3, all involving AFC teams.

The Thursday-nighter is Patriots-Jets at MetLife Stadium. From there, you can make your way to Pittsburgh to catch the Steelers and Chargers at Acrisure Stadium, before finishing up in Buffalo with the Bills and Jaguars at Highmark Stadium.

(Note that there are two Monday night games in Week 3, and if you preferred, you could also see Commanders-Bengals at Cincinnati’s Paycor Stadium — also within respectable driving distance of Pittsburgh.)

Distance between stadiums: 370 miles (NYC to PIT); 208 miles (PIT to BUF)

Week 4: Another two-option week

Sunday, Sept. 29: Eagles at Buccaneers, 1 p.m. ET
Monday, Sept. 30: Titans at Dolphins, 7:30 p.m. ET


Sunday, Sept. 29: Rams at Bears, 1 p.m. ET
Monday, Sept. 30: Seahawks at Lions, 8:15 p.m. ET

For the second straight week, there are two Monday night games — meaning there are two opportunities for multi-game road trips. You can either check out two Florida NFL stadiums in Tampa Bay’s Raymond James Stadium and Miami’s Hard Rock Stadium, or you can explore the NFC North with stops at Chicago’s Soldier Field and Detroit’s Ford Field.

Distance between stadiums: 271 miles (TB to MIA); 282 miles (CHI to DET)

Paycor Stadium, home of the Cincinnati Bengals

Week 5: An I-75 road trip

Thursday, Oct. 3: Buccaneers at Falcons, 8:15 p.m. ET
Sunday, Oct. 6: Ravens at Bengals, 1 p.m. ET

Atlanta and Cincinnati might not seem like they’re that close, but with two days in between games, it’s a fairly straightforward road trip. The Falcons host the Thursday night game, against the division rival Buccaneers at Mercedes-Benz Stadium, and the Bengals also play a divisional tilt against the Ravens on Sunday at Paycor Stadium.

Distance between stadiums: 459 miles

Week 6: Eastern smorgasbord

Sunday, Oct. 13: Texans at Patriots, 1 p.m. ET
Monday, Oct. 14: Bills at Jets, 8:15 p.m. ET

In this particular week on the 2024 NFL schedule, the road trip options are actually plentiful — you could see games in Philly and Baltimore on Sunday, or do a MetLife Stadium doubleheader with the Giants also hosting.

But for this exercise, we’re picking Texans-Patriots at Gillette Stadium, as you can see a showdown of two young QBs in C.J. Stroud and (presumably) Drake Maye, before going back to East Rutherford for a Bills-Jets AFC East showdown.

Distance between stadiums: 207 miles 

Week 7: Southeast or Southwest?

Sunday, Oct. 20: Seahawks at Falcons, 1 p.m. ET
Monday, Oct. 21: Ravens at Buccaneers, 8:15 p.m. ET


Sunday, Oct. 20: Raiders at Rams, 4:05 p.m. ET
Monday, Oct. 21: Chargers at Cardinals, 9 p.m. ET

Why are there so many Sunday-Monday options on the NFL schedule in 2024? Because there are four Monday night doubleheaders, including one in Week 7.

So you could choose the Southeast double, with games at Atlanta’s Mercedes-Benz Stadium and Tampa Bay’s Raymond James Stadium. Or, hang out in the Southwest, watching a Sunday game at L.A.’s SoFi Stadium and a Monday-nighter at Arizona’s State Farm Stadium.

Distance between stadiums: 460 miles (ATL to TB); 378 miles (LA to ARI)

Week 8: Another intriguing pair

Thursday, Oct. 24: Vikings at Rams, 8:15 p.m. ET
Sunday, Oct. 27: Chiefs at Raiders, 4:25 p.m. ET


Sunday, Oct. 27: Ravens at Browns, 1 p.m. ET
Monday, Oct. 28: Giants at Steelers, 8:15 p.m. ET

Once again, two tantalizing options for multi-game trips. You could do the L.A.-to-Vegas double, seeing the Rams at SoFi Stadium on Thursday before heading to Sin City for a Chiefs-Raiders showdown at Allegiant Stadium. Or, see the AFC North in action with the Ravens and Browns squaring off at Cleveland Browns Stadium and the Steelers welcoming the Giants to Acrisure Stadium.

Distance between stadiums: 210 miles (LA to LV); 137 miles (CLE to PIT)

Week 9: A prime-time duo

Thursday, Oct. 31: Texans at Jets, 8:15 p.m. ET
Sunday, Nov. 3: Jaguars at Eagles, 8:20 p.m. ET

Check out this Philly-New York double that begins at MetLife Stadium, where the Jets host the Texans in the Thursday night matchup. Then in the Sunday night matchup, the Eagles take on the Jaguars at Lincoln Financial Field.

Distance between stadiums: 96 miles

Week 10: Which coast is best for you?

Thursday, Nov. 7: Bengals at Ravens, 8:15 p.m. ET
Sunday, Nov. 10: Steelers at Commanders, 1 p.m. ET


Sunday, Nov. 10: Jets at Cardinals, 4:25 p.m. ET
Monday, Nov. 11: Dolphins at Rams, 8:15 p.m. ET

Does the Beltway or the desert suit your fancy more? Either way, Week 10 of the 2024 NFL schedule presents another pair of road trip opportunities.

The Thursday-Sunday option involves games at Baltimore’s M&T Bank Stadium and Washington’s Commanders Field, or you can do a Sunday-Monday trip starting at State Farm Stadium in Arizona and finishing at SoFi Stadium in Southern California.

Distance between stadiums: 33 miles (BAL to WAS); 378 miles (ARI to LA)

Week 11: A Pennsylvania two-step

Thursday, Nov. 14: Commanders at Eagles, 8:15 p.m. ET
Sunday, Nov. 17: Ravens at Steelers, 1 p.m. ET

Want to check off both of Pennsylvania’s NFL stadiums in one shot? Here’s your chance, starting with the Thursday night game at Philly’s Lincoln Financial Field. From there, head across the state on the turnpike for a Sunday afternoon showdown between the Steelers and archrival Ravens at Acrisure Stadium.

(Note: Pittsburgh isn’t your only option for the Sunday game, as the Patriots and Jets are also playing home games that day. We just don’t see the Pennsylvania double come up too often.)

Distance between stadiums: 310 miles

Week 12: Vegas and L.A., again

Sunday, Nov. 24: Broncos at Raiders, 4:05 p.m. ET
Monday, Nov. 25: Ravens at Chargers, 8:15 p.m. ET

The well-worn path on I-15 between Las Vegas and Los Angeles is one that’s more frequented by NFL fans these days, and Week 12 presents another chance to visit both Allegiant Stadium and SoFi Stadium on the same weekend. Plus, you’ll get to see two pretty big showdowns in the AFC.

Distance between stadiums: 277 miles

The Minnesota Vikings enter the field at U.S. Bank Stadium

Week 13: Thanksgiving weekend bonanza

Thursday, Nov. 28: Dolphins at Packers, 8:20 p.m. ET
Sunday, Dec. 1: Cardinals at Vikings, 1 p.m. ET


Friday, Nov. 29: Raiders at Chiefs, 3 p.m. ET
Monday, Dec. 2: Browns at Broncos, 8:15 p.m. ET

Thanksgiving is late on the calendar in 2024, and thus the holiday arrives on Week 13 of the NFL schedule this year. Nonetheless, you can take advantage of it on one of two road-trip ideas for the week.

You could spend Thursday night at Green Bay’s historic Lambeau Field before trekking to Minneapolis to see the Vikings at U.S. Bank Stadium on Sunday. Or, check out the Black Friday game between the Chiefs and Raiders at Arrowhead Stadium and then head across the Plains to see Broncos-Browns at Empower Field on Monday night. Yes, the latter journey is pretty long for a road trip, but at least you have an extra day to make it.

Distance between stadiums: 276 miles (GB to MIN); 610 miles (KC to DEN)

Week 14: A Midwest double

Thursday, Dec. 5: Packers at Lions, 8:15 p.m. ET
Sunday, Dec. 8: Browns at Steelers, 1 p.m. ET

Is Pittsburgh part of the Midwest? You can spend time debating it as you travel between cities for these two games, which could have playoff implications late in the season. The Lions welcome the rival Packers to Ford Field for the Thursday night game, and then the Steelers take on the Browns in an AFC North battle at Acrisure Stadium on Sunday.

Distance between stadiums: 285 miles 

Week 15: West Coast three-step

Thursday, Dec. 12: Rams at 49ers, 8:15 p.m. ET
Sunday, Dec. 15: Buccaneers at Chargers, 1:25 p.m. ET
Monday, Dec. 16: Falcons at Raiders, 8:30 p.m. ET

Here’s a chance to see three NFL games on the West Coast in one shot, starting with a Rams-49ers clash at Levi’s Stadium on Thursday night. Then check out two interconference games: Bucs vs. Chargers at SoFi Stadium on Sunday, followed by Falcons vs. Raiders at Allegiant Stadium on Monday. (And yes, there’s another Monday night doubleheader this week.)

Distance between stadiums: 351 miles (SF-LA); 278 miles (LA-LV)

Week 16: Pre-Christmas party

Thursday, Dec. 19: Browns at Bengals, 8:15 p.m. ET
Sunday, Dec. 22: Lions at Bears, 1 p.m. ET
Monday, Dec. 23: Saints at Packers, 8:15 p.m. ET

Ready for the holidays? You can load up on NFL action in this three-game trip that begins at Cincinnati’s Paycor Stadium on Thursday night and winds its way north, with stops at Chicago’s Soldier Field and Green Bay’s Lambeau Field. Hopefully the weather isn’t too snowy at this time of year!

Distance between stadiums: 293 miles (CIN-CHI); 211 miles (CHI-GB)

Week 17: Post-holiday hangover

Thursday, Dec. 26: Seahawks at Bears, 8:15 p.m. ET
Sunday, Dec. 29: Dolphins at Browns, 8:20 p.m. ET

With 2024 and the season’s NFL schedule winding down, you can explore two games starting at Soldier Field in Chicago, where the Bears will host the Seahawks in the Thursday night contest. Then head to Cleveland, where the Browns face the Dolphins at Cleveland Browns Stadium.

(Potential bonus: Broncos vs. Bengals at Cincinnati’s Paycor Stadium is a candidate to be moved to Saturday, Dec. 28. If that happens, it’s a third game that can be added to the trip. Schedule changes are typically announced by the NFL about one month beforehand.)

Distance between stadiums: 346 miles (CHI to CLE)
