Bills-Rams kicks off regular season; complete Week 1 schedule; all 32 home openers

Roughly six months after a Super Bowl champion was crowned at SoFi Stadium, the quest to crown the next Super Bowl winner will begin in the same venue.

Stars and Super Bowl contenders will collide as Matthew Stafford and the Super Bowl-champion Los Angeles Rams host Josh Allen and the Buffalo Bills at 8:20 p.m. ET on Thursday night, Sept. 8 at SoFi Stadium in the 2022 NFL Kickoff Game on NBC.

Buffalo, winner of the last two AFC East titles, is a Super Bowl favorite in the eyes of many and will look to start its campaign with a resounding statement against the reigning champions, who have Stafford and much of their title-winning cast back, along with some high-profile additions such as wide receiver Allen Robinson and linebacker Bobby Wagner.

In addition to the Bills-Rams kickoff showdown, the league announced each team’s home openers.

There is no shortage of highly anticipated prime-time tilts to get the season started.

Dak Prescott and the Dallas Cowboys will open up the Sunday Night Football slate against Tom Brady and the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in a rematch of last season’s NFL Kickoff Game.

The first Monday Night Football game of the year will be a homecoming for the ages as Russell Wilson and the Denver Broncos head to the Pacific Northwest to play Wilson’s old squad, the Seattle Seahawks.

A week later, a Week 2 Monday night doubleheader will see the Bills and Philadelphia Eagles open up their home schedules.

The first Prime Video game of the season — in Week 2 — will also serve as the Kansas City Chiefs’ home opener, as they welcome the rival Los Angeles Chargers.

Take a look at each NFL team’s home openers below, and check out the complete regular-season schedule.
