Football fans know the importance of the NFL schedule. Whether you plan on watching each game live on TV or streaming them online, knowing what's coming up is essential for a successful season.

Football is an exhilarating sport that offers drama and athletic prowess. It's no wonder why it has become such a beloved pastime in the United States.

Week 1

The NFL schedule begins on the weekend of September 8th and continues through early January. It consists of 272 games played by all 32 teams, plus three preseason contests.

This year's schedule offers several intriguing interdivisional matchups, such as Patriots-Dolphins, Steelers-Bengals, Raiders-Chargers and Packers-Vikings. Furthermore, Week 1 features three primetime games starting with Bills-Rams on Thursday before concluding with Sunday Night Football.

Sunday's slate features several divisional battles and the league is allowing some teams to "cross-flex" games between CBS and FOX in an effort to bring under-distributed matchups to wider audiences. Some of these matches were announced this morning; others will be decided throughout the course of the season.

Week 2

This week, there are plenty of must-watch games for football fans. Highlighting Thursday Night Football between the Chiefs and Chargers on Amazon Prime, plus Miami Dolphins versus Baltimore Ravens on Sunday afternoon.

On Monday Night Football, there will be two exciting games to watch: Tennessee Titans versus Buffalo Bills at 7:15 p.m. ET on ESPN and Minnesota Vikings versus Philadelphia Eagles at 8:30 p.m. on ABC.

Sunday's early- and late-afternoon schedule offers plenty of action, featuring a 1 p.m. game between the Steelers and Patriots as well as a 4:05 p.m. matchup between Seahawks and 49ers among others.

Week 3

An exciting week lies ahead with several key divisional games and several primetime NFL matches, including a thrilling battle between Tom Brady and Aaron Rodgers.

Pittsburgh Steelers and Cleveland Browns are two of the most intriguing teams in the league right now. Their matchup on Sunday could have major playoff implications if either team comes out victorious.

On Sunday night, it's a crucial AFC North battle between Cleveland and Pittsburgh - who have lost two straight to start the season. Whoever emerges victorious will gain significant momentum in their division race.

The NFC East has been one of the most competitive divisions so far. Both Jacksonville Jaguars and Philadelphia Eagles are 2-0 after starting off with losses, but both teams still have much to prove.

Week 4

The NFL schedule is constantly in flux, but its makers strive to offer fans and broadcast partners the best selection of games each week. One major challenge lies in deciding where teams will have bye weeks, as well as avoiding road trips that give them an unfair edge over their opponent.

The NFL attempts to limit the number of road games teams play each season, emphasizing on the first and last weeks. Furthermore, they strive to avoid placing teams on bye weeks more than once; however, certain circumstances cannot be avoided.

Week 4 features some key matchups, including the 1-2 Kansas City Chiefs visiting Philadelphia and 2-1 Los Angeles Chargers visiting Tampa Bay Buccaneers. Plus, don't miss the potential epic showdown between NFL's only undefeated team - Philadelphia Eagles - and rival Jacksonville Jaguars!

Week 5

Week 5 is upon us and it offers a plethora of divisional matchups. In addition to the classic rivalries between Baltimore and Cincinnati, there are some intriguing matchups as well.

One thing to watch for in this week's games is the NFL's second trip to London. CBS will broadcast nationally in one window, while FOX has a game scheduled in both early and late windows this week.

FOX's early slate includes two first-place showdowns in the NFC South and NFC North. The Buccaneers' game will receive widespread national coverage, and it should be a straightforward victory for them.

Week 6

Week 6 of the 2022 NFL season promises an exciting slate of games, including two prime-time matchups, four divisional showdowns and a pair of teams in need of victory. Here's how to watch every game on the schedule - both TV and live streaming options included!

The New York Jets come into this game with a 4-1 record, including two victories over top-10 opponents. It marks their first matchup against an undefeated team this season and provides them with an opportunity to continue their momentum heading into their bye week.

The Baltimore Ravens are fresh off a win against the Dolphins that has put them back on track after two disappointing second-half collapses in recent weeks. On the other end of the spectrum, the Giants have won three close games to reach this point and will be looking to continue their winning ways against an injured Ravens defense.

Week 7

The NFL talk specifically about 7 is set, and this week we have some fantastic matchups on tap. The big national game between the 49ers and Chiefs promises to be an entertaining spectacle as we get a rare look at two potential Super Bowl contenders.

On Sunday night, the Dolphins and Steelers will square off in a thrilling football battle. Tua Tagovailoa returns for Miami after missing two games with a concussion, so this is your chance to witness him in action and also see how the Steelers are faring.

Another key game in Week 7 is the Colts-Titans matchup, with first place in the AFC South on the line. After their bye week, the Titans have been unstoppable under Mike Vrabel since taking over as head coach. As 2.5-to-3 point home favorites to host the Colts in Week 7, expect plenty of excitement at Nissan Stadium!

Week 8

NFL Week 8 is the eighth week of 2018 and it's packed with plenty of action. There are some surprisingly good games on the schedule, including two Christmas Day matchups.

On Sunday, the Vikings and Cardinals will square off in a matchup that promises to be exciting. Meanwhile, the Titans have just come off an impressive victory over the Colts.

The Bills are well-positioned to win this matchup, as their run defense ranks among the top five for yards allowed on the road. At home, they allow just 130.5 rushing yards per game. Furthermore, Buffalo has shown great poise when throwing the ball away this season, completing 72.4 percent of their passes away from home.

Week 9

On Thursday Night Football in Week Nine of the National Football season, we'll witness Baltimore Ravens and New Orleans Saints battle on Thursday Night Football. Additionally, Cincinnati Bengals fans get to witness their team take on Cleveland Browns in an exciting Monday Night Football game.

The Philadelphia Eagles are on a roll with their 3-1 start, while the Atlanta Falcons have won back-to-back games against Carolina Panthers and Miami Dolphins. But they'll face another daunting test in Week 9 when they travel to Houston Texans who lost their first game of the season last weekend.

The Jets remain in the AFC playoff picture, but lack a starting quarterback to contend for a title. Zach Wilson threw three interceptions and completed less than half of his passes in New England's loss, so he'll need to be at his best against Buffalo, where the Bills are heavily favored.
