Both are big holidays, they're called the High Holy Days for a reason.

But it's not just about the athletes; fans, TV, ownership, and more. The NFL isn't going to open their season on a major religious holiday (they already are, but the start of Rosh Hashanah is more important than the start of the 2nd day of it).
