The term "bye week" exists in American football. In both Canadian and American professional football leagues, the term "bye week" refers to any week during the regular season in which a team does not play a game. Each NFL team will have one "bye week" during a normal season; this is placed on the schedule between Week 3 and Week 10. The NFL has used the bye week since 1990 so as to extend the regular season schedule to 17 weeks. Between 1999 and 2002 byes had to be scheduled every week because the league had 31 teams. Traditionally, the CFL and Arena Football have scheduled byes only in seasons when they have had an odd number of teams in their leagues. However, the CFL introduced a scheduled bye week for its eight teams for the 2007 season.
