Bills-Rams season opener among highlights of 2022 NFL schedule

The defending Super Bowl champion Los Angeles Rams will open the 2022 NFL season at home against a leading contender in the AFC, the Buffalo Bills.

That was one of many missing pieces finalized Thursday when the NFL revealed the complete 272-game regular-season schedule. For the second straight season, the slate covers 18 weeks.

Teams have known the 17 opponents they will face since the end of the 2021 season, but the schedule reveal, complete with bye weeks and primetime broadcast assignments, has become a made-for-TV offseason event for the league.

The league announced a series of select games in the week-plus leading up to Thursday, including five international games to be played across London, Munich and Mexico City, and the Rams’ game against the Denver Broncos as part of the first-ever Christmas Day tripleheader.

Among other Week 1 fixtures, the unretired Tom Brady and his Tampa Bay Buccaneers will hit the road to play the Dallas Cowboys for the first “Sunday Night Football” game of the year, and the Broncos will visit the Seattle Seahawks on “Monday Night Football,” making quarterback Russell Wilson’s first game with the Broncos coincide with his return to Seattle after 10 seasons.

The Kansas City Chiefs will host the Bills in Week 8 in a rematch of the 2020 AFC Championship Game and a 2021 AFC Divisional Round playoff game, both of which were high-scoring instant classics. The Chiefs won both meetings, the latter in overtime.

The Chiefs will also get another swipe at the Buccaneers when they play at Tampa Bay in Week 4 on “Sunday Night Football” in a rematch of Super Bowl LV, in which Brady’s Bucs defeated Patrick Mahomes’ Chiefs.

The rest of the Christmas tripleheader will contain the Green Bay Packers at the Miami Dolphins and the Buccaneers at the Arizona Cardinals. Broncos-Rams will be the second game of the three.

The full Week 1 schedule is below (all times ET):

Sept. 8
Buffalo at L.A. Rams, 8:20 p.m.

Sept. 11
New Orleans at Atlanta, 1 p.m.
Cleveland at Carolina, 1 p.m.
San Francisco at Chicago, 1 p.m.
Pittsburgh at Cincinnati, 1 p.m.
Philadelphia at Detroit, 1 p.m.
Indianapolis at Houston, 1 p.m.
New England at Miami, 1 p.m.
Baltimore at N.Y. Jets, 1 p.m.
Jacksonville at Washington, 1 p.m.
N.Y. Giants at Tennessee, 4:25 p.m.
Kansas City at Arizona, 4:25 p.m.
Las Vegas at L.A. Chargers, 4:25 p.m.
Green Bay at Minnesota, 4:25 p.m.
Tampa Bay at Dallas, 8:20 p.m.

Sept. 12
Denver at Seattle, 8:15 p.m.

Ten most intriguing NFL games of 2022

Bit by bit, the National Football League has been teasing its 2022 schedule. But what had been a trickle of information turned into a flood Thursday night.

In the latest line of non-events that the NFL has manufactured into a made-for-television production, the league released its complete 18-week regular-season schedule.

We have known the opponents each team will face since the end of last season. The league also previously announced its five International Series games, which should all be yawners.

The league even gave us a peak into its Christmas Day lineup by announcing earlier this week that the Denver Broncos will face the Super Bowl champion Los Angeles Rams.

Now that every date is set, let’s take a look at the 10 most intriguing games on the 2022 schedule:

10. Broncos at Rams, Dec. 25 (CBS/Nickelodeon)

This game is getting a lot of hype because the Rams are the champions and quarterback Russell Wilson joined the Broncos in the biggest move of the offseason. But let’s see how important this game is by December. A lot of people are assuming Wilson will come in and win a Super Bowl like Peyton Manning did. Guess what? Wilson is not Manning.

9. Patriots at Raiders, Dec. 18 (NBC)

This game takes on special meaning not due to “Sunday Night Football” but because it matches Las Vegas coach Josh McDaniels against his mentor, Bill Belichick. McDaniels was a shooting star on Belichick’s staff before getting a chance to be a head coach in Denver. After another stint under Belichick, McDaniels might approach things differently.

8. Broncos at Seahawks, Sept. 12 (ESPN)

Just like the Christmas Day game, this contest will receive too much hype. That’s all because of Wilson, and it happens Week 1. He spent 10 seasons in Seattle before forcing the Seahawks to trade him in the offseason. That has made him an unpopular figure in Seattle, but it’s hard to imagine fans falling in love with Drew Lock or Geno Smith.

7. Bengals at Browns, Oct. 31 (ESPN)

Admit it, you thought you never would see this matchup on a top 10 list. But it is. That’s because Joe Burrow is the “in” thing in Cincinnati, Baker Mayfield is on the verge of being out in Cleveland and Deshaun Watson will be trying to resurrect his career and make the Browns into a playoff contender.

6. Bengals at Ravens, Oct. 9 (NBC)

Burrow is the big story in the AFC North, and he should be after leading the Bengals to the Super Bowl. But let’s not forget about Baltimore quarterback Lamar Jackson. He still is one of the most dangerous players in the league.

5. Rams at Buccaneers, Nov. 6 (CBS)

To say the schedule makers had to scramble when Tom Brady announced he was unretiring would be an understatement. This game initially had Sunday at 1 p.m. ET written all over it. But any game in which Brady is on the field is a big game and this is a matchup of the last two Super Bowl champions.

4. Packers at Bills, Oct. 30 (NBC)

This is football the way it was meant to be played — outdoors in late fall, between two teams quite familiar with cold temperatures. Plus, it could mark a passing of the torch. Green Bay’s Aaron Rodgers has won two straight Most Valuable Player awards, but Buffalo’s Josh Allen is in the next generation of great quarterbacks.

3. Chiefs at Buccaneers, Oct. 2 (NBC)

This is a rematch of Super Bowl LV at Raymond James Stadium. In that game, Brady and the Bucs dominated the Chiefs on the way to a 31-9 win. But Brady has to give up his throne at some point (doesn’t he?) and Patrick Mahomes looks like he’s next in line.

2. Bills at Chiefs, Oct. 16 (CBS)

A flip of the coin is really all that separated these two teams in last year’s postseason. That was so controversial that it prompted the NFL to change its postseason overtime rules. There’s a very good chance that whoever wins this game will represent the AFC in the Super Bowl.

1. Bills at Rams, Sept. 8 (NBC)

At least on paper and at the moment, these are the two best teams in the NFL. If that’s true, the first game of the NFL season could serve as a Super Bowl preview. Back-to-back championships with the Rams would make people forget Matthew Stafford was ever with Detroit. Getting the Bills to the Super Bowl, where they haven’t been since the 1993 season, firmly would establish Allen as one of the league’s best quarterbacks.

NFL plans two MNF games Week 2

Tandem “Monday Night Football” games are scheduled for Week 2 of the 2022 NFL season.

The league is taking the long road to announce select games this season before releasing the full 2022 regular season schedule Thursday night.

Unlike the recent trend of back-to-back Monday games for Week 1, the NFL will overlap its primetime Monday offerings Week 2 this season.

The first game on Sept. 19 is the Tennessee Titans visiting the Buffalo Bills at 7:15 p.m. ET, an ESPN broadcast of a rematch of a 34-31 shootout in Week 6 last season.

In the second game, the Philadelphia Eagles host the Minnesota Vikings, an 8:30 p.m. ET kickoff airing on ABC.

NFL to stage first-ever Christmas Day tripleheader

The NFL will hold a tripleheader on Christmas Day for the first time in 2022.

NFL vice president of broadcast planning Mike North told Buffalo’s WGR 550 this week that with Christmas falling on a Sunday this year, the league will expand its footprint on the holiday despite Christmas traditionally being the NBA’s domain.

“We’ll play one game on CBS in the afternoon, one game on Fox in the afternoon and our regular Sunday night game on NBC,” North said. “Christmas, when it falls on an NFL game day, we’ve had a lot of success there, all due respect to our friends at the NBA.”

The NFL will have 11 games on Saturday, Christmas Eve, along with its usual Thursday and Monday night games surrounding the Christmas tripleheader.

The Christmas matchups are expected to be leaked during the week of May 9 before the full schedule is released May 12.

The league scheduled two games on Christmas in 2021, when it fell on a Saturday, and played one Friday evening Christmas game in 2020.

The NBA plays five games back to back every Christmas.

NFL to release full 2022 schedule May 12

The 2022 NFL schedule will be divulged one piece at a time before the full reveal May 12.

The NFL announced Thursday that it will announce Amazon Prime Video’s first “Thursday Night Football” game (Week 2) during the first round of the NFL draft on April 28.

The league will then announce all International Series games May 4 and reveal select games during the week of May 9. Its schedule release show on NFL Network will be May 12 at 8 p.m. ET.

The 32 NFL teams already know which teams they will face next season as a result of the league’s scheduling formula, but the order of games and which ones will be played in primetime slots on national TV will be solidified during the schedule release show.

Five teams already know they will serve as the home team for international games. The Green Bay Packers, New Orleans Saints and Jacksonville Jaguars will participate in games in London. The Arizona Cardinals will play a game in Mexico City, and the Tampa Bay Buccaneers will be designated as the home team in the league’s first game in Germany, to be played at Allianz Arena in Munich.

NFL finalizes 2022 opponents for every team

The NFL on Thursday confirmed the home and away matchups for the 2022 regular season for all 32 teams.

For the second season, teams will play a 17th game — an interconference matchup based on the final 2021 standings. Notable matchups created from this rule include the Tennessee Titans vs. the Green Bay Packers (the two No. 1 seeds in this year’s postseason) and the Kansas City Chiefs vs. the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, a rematch of Super Bowl LV.

The NFC teams will host the 17th game in 2022 after the AFC hosted in 2021, the first year the extra game was in play. This means that all NFC teams will have nine home games next season.

Specific game dates for the 2022 regular-season schedule will be revealed at a later time.

NFL moves kickoff times for two Week 17 games

The NFL on Monday announced time changes for two games in Week 17.

The league flip-flopped the Los Angeles Rams-Baltimore and Carolina-New Orleans games, moving Rams-Ravens to 1 p.m. ET while making Panthers-Saints the 4:25 p.m. ET contest. Both games will remain on FOX.

Both games have playoff implications, with the Ravens (8-7) and Rams (11-4) both fighting to win their respective divisions. The Saints are trying to fight their way into the playoff picture while the Panthers have been eliminated.

The Saints (7-7) play the Miami Dolphins on Monday night in the finale of Week 16.

Cowboys host Raiders, Bills face Saints on Thanksgiving

Dallas draws the Las Vegas Raiders in the mid-afternoon game on Thanksgiving Day.

The Cowboys’ traditional holiday home date is the middle game following the Chicago Bears at Detroit Lions and Buffalo Bills at New Orleans Saints.

The NFL schedule will be released in full on Wednesday night.

Dallas lost 41-16 to the Washington Football Team on Thanksgiving Day in 2020 and enters with a two-game losing streak on Turkey Day. The Bills beat the Cowboys in 2019.

The Bears and Lions are meeting for the third time in four years on Thanksgiving. Chicago won games in Detroit in 2018 and 2019.
