Regular seasonEdit

A 24-day players' strike reduced the 16-game season to 15. The games that were scheduled for the third week of the season were canceled, but the games for weeks 4-6 were played with replacement players. 85% of the veteran players did not cross picket lines during the strike, putting in question the integrity of the 1987 season results.

The teams fielded by NFL clubs bore little resemblance to those the fans had come to recognize through previous seasons.[2] Fans tagged the replacement player teams with mock names like "Seattle Sea-scabs."[3]
