The regular season will kick off Thursday, Sept. 8, with the Super Bowl champion Los Angeles Rams hosting the Buffalo Bills.

Fans won't have to wait long to see Russell Wilson face off against his old club. The Seattle Seahawks host the Denver Broncos on Monday Night Football to close out Week 1.

The 2022 International Series includes five games, including the Seahawks facing the Tampa Bay Buccaneers at 9:30 a.m. ET on Nov. 13 at Allianz Arena, home of Bayern Munich. It'll be the first-ever NFL regular-season game in Germany.

The Thanksgiving Day tripleheader begins with the Detroit Lions hosting the Bills, followed by the New York Giants travelling to the Dallas Cowboys. The holiday action concludes with the Minnesota Vikings hosting the New England Patriots.

The majority of Week 16 games will be played on Christmas Eve, a Saturday, before the NFL's first-ever Christmas Day tripleheader. The holiday fun will begin with the Miami Dolphins hosting the Green Bay Packers. The Broncos will hop in their sleigh to visit the Rams in the second game. The Arizona Cardinals will try to ruin Tom Brady's holiday cheer when the Bucs travel to the desert for the nightcap.

A staggering 12 teams tied for the maximum of five prime-time fixtures:

  • Bills
  • Cowboys
  • Packers
  • Chiefs
  • Rams
  • Broncos
  • Buccaneers
  • Chargers
  • Bengals
  • Patriots
  • Eagles
  • 49ers

The Lions are the only club without a primetime game.

The Rams will play the most difficult schedule in the league based on their opponents' combined 2021 win percentage. Their Super Bowl LVI opponents, the Cincinnati Bengals, also have a top-three most difficult strength of schedule. The four NFC East teams occupy the four spots at the other end of the strength of schedule rankings.
