Every NFL season’s schedule comes with some unexpected quirks. The 2022 NFL schedule is no different as several teams will experience some crazy match-ups or scheduling throughout the campaign.

Multiple teams will experience quirks this season when it comes to their NFL schedule. The NFL’s teams are moving toward training camp which will open later this summer. Here is a look at some of the teams’ scheduling oddities before the campaign gets underway.

Chicago Bears

Chicago won’t play a road game in December 2022. The Bears will spend the entire month playing at Soldier Field in Chicago with games against the Green Bay Packers, Philadelphia Eagles, and Buffalo Bills. The Bears will have a bye week between their games with the Packers and Eagles. Chicago have zero away games in December is the first time this has happened since the 1964 NFL season.

Kansas City Chiefs

If the Kansas City Chiefs do not make the NFL playoffs, there will be a good reason for it. KC will start the 2022 season playing eight straight opponents who finished last season with records above .500. The Chiefs begin the season with the Arizona Cardinals and the difficult run ends in Week 9 with the Tennessee Titans. The Chiefs are the first team in the NFL’s history to have such a difficult opening schedule.

NY Jets and Baltimore Ravens

The New York Jets will start the season by playing every team in the AFC North in the opening four weeks of the term. That is quite bizarre, but the Baltimore Ravens will face off against every team in the AFC East in the first four games of the 2022 season. The last time a team played the four teams from a rival divisional in consecutive weeks to open the season was in 2004 when the New Orleans Saints did it.

Washington Commanders

The Washington Commanders will play back-to-back games against the New York Giants in Week 13 and Week 15. It is back-to-back games for the Commanders as they will have a bye in Week 14. Washington is just the second team since 1991 to play an opposing team in back-to-back games.

Green Bay Packers, Miami Dolphins, Philadelphia Eagles, and KC Chiefs

The Packers, Dolphins, Eagles, and Chiefs all have a long road trip in 2022. All four teams will play three consecutive games on the road. It isn’t an idea feature to have on your schedule. However, since 2018, teams that have played a three-game away trip are 22-11 in those games.

The 2022 NFL schedule has thrown up some obstacles and benefits to some of the league’s teams. It will be some time before we find out how significant these quirks of the schedule are to the teams.
