Within the NFL, it has become a never-ending news domination. From the actual season to the combine, to the draft, minicamp, etc., the NFL leads every other sporting league by a far margin. One fun part of the NFL offseason is the lead up to the schedule release. This is a time where fans get to speculate and see when their favorite teams will be playing. Before the schedule comes out, we know who each team will be playing so before the actual release of the schedule, here are some of the better games planned for the 2022 season:
Buffalo Bills @ Kansas City Chiefs
-This has to be one of, if not the biggest game on the schedule, right? It’s a rematch of two teams who have met in the postseason two straight seasons including this past year’s thriller. The Bills thought they had finally vanquished the Chiefs, only for Patrick Mahomes to tie the game in 13 seconds. It was one of the most exciting finishes to a game in recent memory and the two teams have a matchup set for this season back at the scene of the crime.
Denver Broncos @ Seattle Seahawks
-It’s the return of Russell Wilson to Seattle and surely, he is going to want to put on a show. He asked for a trade from the team over the offseason and now gets to return to play the Seahawks. This has the potential to be a true revenge game with Wilson getting to cook against the team that drafted him.
Cincinnati Bengals @ New Orleans Saints
-It’s the return of Joe Burrow and Ja’Marr Chase to the Bayou and this game has all the feels of a primetime matchup. The former LSU duo will most likely receive a warm welcome from the Saints faithful for bringing a national title to LSU back in 2019. However, once the game kicks off, it’s all business between the Bengals and Saints.
Green Bay Packers @ Buffalo Bills
-Aaron Rodgers against Josh Allen in Buffalo? That’s an awesome game without the rest of the teams even taking the field. This is destined for primetime and hopefully later in the season when we could possibly see some colder temperatures make way to Buffalo.
Los Angeles Rams @ Tampa Bay Buccaneers
-Many really thought that the last time these two teams played would be the final time Tom Brady stepped onto a NFL field. However, he decided to come back and gets another shot at the defending champion Rams. This has all the makings of a classic game.
