  • NFL Schedule 2022-2023

    Super Bowl LVI was the pinnacle of the 2021 NFL schedule, determining the outright winner of the 2021 NFL season. The Los Angeles Rams eventually came out on top against AFC champions Cincinnati Bengals 23-20.

    When does the 2022-2023 NFL season start?

    The 2022-23 NFL season is slated to start on Thursday, September 8, 2022. Historically, the season opener is staged by the Super Bowl winners of the previous season. In which case, the Los Angeles Rams will be the hosts of the 2022 NFL season opener. It will be the second season running where the NFL season begins where the last season ended.

    The 2022 NFL pre-season schedule is yet to be formally announced. However, if previous seasons are anything to go by, it’s likely to kick off on the first or second weekend of August. Although there used to be four games per team in the NFL pre-season schedule, this figure was cut to three games in 2021.

    How do they make the NFL schedule?

    There are 32 teams in the NFL. There are two conferences – the American Football Conference (AFC) and the National Football Conference (NFC). Each conference has 16 teams. These conferences are then split into four-team regional divisions – East, West, North, and South.

    In terms of the full breakdown of the 17-game 2022 NFL season, six games will be played against divisional rivals. Four games will be played against teams in the same conference. Four games will be played against teams in the other conference and two games will be played against teams within the two remaining divisions in their own conference.

    As of the 2021 NFL season, the addition of a 17th regular season game sees teams play against opponents in the other conference within a division they were not scheduled to play.

    What will be the 2022 NFL schedule for opponents?

    Although we’re yet to receive the full 2022 NFL schedule, detailing when teams play each other, we do know which teams are playing each other ahead of the 2022 NFL campaign.

    There is a system in place which determines which teams match up every NFL season. Teams must play six games against divisional rivals regardless – with one home game and one road game per rival. Teams also play four games from another division within their conference – the division rotates on a four-year cycle. Teams also play sides in the opposite conference based on their standings from last season and a side in the same conference based on the previous season’s standings – on a rotating cycle.
