NFL Drops Its 2022-2023 Schedule Like It’s Hot – Opinion

Here at the sports desk located somewhere below decks of the Good Pirate Ship RedState, we’ve been keeping tabs on all the various goings-on across the land. NBA and NHL playoffs are rolling along, MLB is settling into a groove, and since it’s May, what better time to talk about … uh, the NFL.

It is a hugely anticipated event that the NFL schedule releases are released each year, for unknown reasons. This transpires despite the list of who plays who and where being announced the same day as the regular season’s end. Only the above-mentioned who and where events will be accomplished by schedule release day. But hey, we’ll play along.

This season will begin on Thursday September 8th when the Buffalo Bills move west to play the Los Angeles Rams. This match will be interesting considering that the Bills currently hold the AFC title. They hoped that the schedule would give them an excuse to travel from Buffalo to Southern California, perhaps in late December or earlyJanuary. With a matchup between the Seattle Seahawks and Denver Broncos on Monday, the first week ends. I wonder if Russell Wilson is going to be more focused.

Week Two’s highlight is the Thursday night matchup with the Los Angeles Squatters … er, Chargers visiting the Kansas City Chiefs. Expect lots of Justin Herbert versus Patrick Mahomes chat, provided by Jake from State Farm.

Week Three has many divisional games, leading off with the Pittsburgh Steelers (and whoever winds up being their quarterback this season) visiting the Cleveland Browns, where Baker Mayfield probably won’t be the quarterback.

The legendary Washington Commanders-Dallas Cowboys rivalry is back in Week 4. This week’s slate includes the Seahawks versus the Lions, the Jaguars versus the Eagles, and the Cardinals versus the Packers. Sylvester and Tweety bird will host the site betting action. lit.

Week five features some interesting matchups with the Cowboys hosting the Rams and Cincinnati Bengals travelling to Baltimore to face the Ravens.

Week Six isn’t quite as interesting. Can’t win ’em all.

Week Seven, let’s see here … Kansas City comes out west to play the San Francisco 49ers. Red is expected to be worn by many people at the event.

Week 8 sees Baltimore travel to Tampa Bay with Tom Brady, the Buccaneers and Baltimore, while the 49ers will be traveling down I-5 to face the Rams and the Bengals are visiting the Browns Halloween night. There will be lots of jokes about trick-or treating.

Week Nine showcases a rematch of last year’s Rams — Buccaneers playoff tilt.

In Week Ten, the Dallas Cowboys visit the frozen tundra at Lambeau Field in order to battle Aaron Rodgers of the Green Bay Packers. Except it’ll be in the middle of November, so the tundra shouldn’t be all that frozen.

Week Eleven includes some notable division matchups: Raiders at Broncos and Chiefs at Chargers. Bengals at Steelers.

The Thanksgiving triple-header kicks off Week 12. The following Sunday’s slate features the Rams visiting the Chiefs.

Week Thirteen Buffalo at New England. Kansas City, Cincinnati. Good.

Week Fourteen Las Vegas Raiders at Rams Oh, that won’t be crazy in the stands or anything. While the 49ers are more crazy from the stands, the Buccaneers on the field will likely be more exciting.

Week 15 features a matchup between Green Bay’s Rams and Packers on Monday, both sides petitioning Los Angeles to host the game.

Because Christmas is on a Sunday this holiday year, Week Sixteen has to be creative in scheduling. Last-minute shoppers will have a great excuse to delay Christmas shopping by having 11 games on Christmas Eve. Christmas Day will mirror Thanksgiving in that it will feature a triple-header, starting with the Packers at the Dolphins to their relief. Then, the Broncos at the Rams to their relief. Finally, the Buccaneers at the Cardinals to finish with them to their complete indifference weather-wise.

All will not be quiet on New Year’s Day for Week Seventeen, especially in Las Vegas with the 49ers facing off against the Raiders. Allegiant Stadium security personnel are our sincere condolences.

As all of the games take place on Sundays, Week Eighteen will conclude the regular season. Let’s party like it’s 1969.

Our springtime sport watching is now back in full swing.
