When does the 2022 NFL season begin? Information on the 2022 NFL schedule

The NFL has officially returned!

Last night, the Raiders and Jaguars met in the Hall of Fame Game, meaning we’re nearing the 2022 regular season. The Los Angeles Rams are the reigning Super Bowl champions, but Vegas isn’t expecting a repeat as the Buffalo Bills, Tampa Bay Buccaneers, Kansas City Chiefs and Green Bay Packers are all favorites ahead of Matthew Stafford and company.

We’ve put together the week 1 schedule as well as the full one Thursday night/Sunday night/Monday night football Schedules for the 2022 season (but keep in mind that the NFL uses “flexible schedules” later in the season). When exactly does the new NFL season start? Here’s everything you need to know.
