MILWAUKEE -- Ed Sheeran's scheduled stadium tour this fall had a big impact on NFL scheduling, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter. 

Thinking out loud on Twitter, Schefter pointed out that eight teams who had a Sheeran concert scheduled on a Saturday night, did not have a home game scheduled the next day. It lines up perfectly. 

In total, Sheeran disrupted the Lions in week one, Patriots in week 2, Giants/Jets in week 3, Titans in week 5, Chiefs in week 6, Vikings in week 7, Cowboys in week 8 and Falcons in week 10.

Sheeran also has a Milwaukee show at Miller Park this Fall -- which is during the MLB playoffs.

The 27-year-old singer, songwriter from the United Kingdom was the best-selling global recording artist of 2017 with his hit singles "Shape of You" and "Castle on the Hill" on his third album "Divide."

Divide went multi-platinum in 36 markets and was the best-selling album of the year.
