Schedule's Out: Rams Host Bills in Kickoff Game
NFL Offseason - The NFL has released its 2022 schedule. The season kicks off with the Super Bowl champion Los Angeles Rams hosting the AFC favorite Buffalo Bills on Thursday night, September 8, in a rematch of a wild game from 2020. The last time these two teams played, the Bills went up 28-3, fell behind 32-28, and rallied to win 35-32, all in regulation.
Other notable Week 1 games include the L.A. Chargers hosting the Las Vegas Raiders in a rematch of last year's win-and-in game from Week 18; the Cincinnati Bengals opening defense of their AFC championship at home against the division-rival Pittsburgh Steelers; a shootout in the desert as Patrick Mahomes and Kansas City visit Kyler Murray and Arizona; the Dallas Cowboys at the Tampa Bay Buccaneers on Sunday night; and finally, Russell Wilson leading the Denver Broncos into Seattle to
defeat face the Seahawks on Monday Night Football.
Highlights from later in the season:
- Week 2: The Cowboys, who open against Tampa Bay, must then host Cincinnati. They then travel to L.A. to face the Rams in a brutal start to their schedule.
- Week 3: Green Bay at Tampa Bay. Aaron Rodgers vs. Tom Brady ... for the last time?
- Week 3: Arizona hosts the Rams, hoping to redeem themselves after last year's humiliating playoff defeat.
- Week 6: Kansas City hosts Buffalo in a rematch of last year's all-time classic playoff game.
- Week 8: Denver vs. Jacksonville in London, England.
- Week 10: Tampa Bay vs. Seattle in Munich, Germany.
- Week 12: Thanksgiving tripleheader: Bills at Lions, Giants at Cowboys, Patriots at Vikings.
- Week 13: Cincinnati hosts Kansas City in a rematch of the AFC Championship Game.
- Week 16: Christmas Day tripleheader: Green Bay at Miami, Denver at L.A. Rams, Tampa Bay at Arizona.
- Week 17: Rams "at" Chargers in the battle for Los Angeles (not to be confused with PWG's annual Battle for Los Angeles).
- Week 18: Tampa Bay at Atlanta, and maybe THIS will be Tom Brady's regular-season finale.
UPDATE: We had to include the Chargers' schedule announcement. It's magnificent.
Should we REALLY make our schedule release video an anime?
