The NFL preseason has officially come to an end and teams have decided on their 53-player rosters. There have been resignations, some players who were cut have signed with new teams, and now, we wait. With all of that being said, are there any NFL games being played today, and if not, when does the 2022 NFL season actually start?
There are no NFL games today. Week 3 of the preseason concluded with the Pittsburgh Steelers defeating the Detroit Lions 19-9. It was a disappointing ending for the Lions, who have been the offseason favorites thanks to their appearance in this year’s Hard Knocks series.
Yes, the preseason is over, but don’t panic! The regular season is just five days away and will kick off on Thursday, September 8. The Buffalo Bills and Los Angeles Rams will kick off the 2022 NFL season in Los Angeles, where Matthew Stafford and the Rams won the Super Bowl just a few months ago. .
It should be an interesting matchup since Josh Allen and the Bills are entering the season as the Super Bowl favorites. A win over the defending Super Bowl champions could be a good way to plant their flag and show that the hype surrounding them is legitimate.
Meanwhile, the Rams are basically getting their entire roster back from last season, and they’ve also made some improvements, including adding WR Allen Robinson.
After the football game on Thursday night, the usual list of Sunday games will take place. The action begins at 1 pm ET and continues through Sunday Night Football at 8:15 pm ET.
Some interesting stories to watch on Sunday include Baker Mayfield’s return to Cleveland, an AFC East clash between the Dolphins and Patriots, and a prime-time matchup between two NFC powerhouses in Dallas and Tampa Bay.
Week 1 concludes on Monday Night Football when the Seattle Seahawks take on the Denver Broncos. It will be the first time we’ve seen Russell Wilson in a different jersey after he was traded to Denver in the offseason.
