A wild offseason of quarterback movement has benefitted the 2022 NFL schedule, which features some epic heavyweight clashes among the game’s top passers.
The 2022 NFL schedule might be the most anticipated in the history of the league thanks to a dramatic offseason that featured a ton of movement from star players. The AFC West has become loaded thanks to some big spending sprees in free agency as well as trades that have brought stars like Russell Wilson, Khalil Mack and Davante Adams into the division.
There has also been a huge migration of elite talent to the AFC as well, setting the stage for a strange NFL world where the junior conference is stronger than the more senior NFC, which is top-heavy with a few superteams like the Green Bay Packers, Los Angeles Rams and Tampa Bay Buccaneers.
The good news for NFL fans is that a lot of these top teams are set to square off with each other, which should create plenty of interesting options for us to watch on the NFL schedule. There are a lot of great games to choose from but these 10 contests rate above the rest in terms of intrigue for the 2022 season.

10. Best games on the 2022 NFL Schedule – Cincinnati Bengals at Baltimore Ravens
The AFC North has quietly morphed into the conference’s second-best division after Cincinnati’s stunning run to the Super Bowl last season. The Bengals have a rising star in quarterback Joe Burrow and their matchups with the Baltimore Ravens should make for excellent theater.
The Ravens surprisingly finished in last place in the division after a key late-season injury to Lamar Jackson sank Baltimore’s playoff hopes. Prior to the injury, Baltimore was 8-3 and positioned to make a run at home-field advantage throughout the playoffs, making the Ravens a major threat if Jackson can stay healthy.
There is also a big revenge angle for the Ravens, who were swept by the Bengals in 2021 and embarrassed at home in a 41-17 loss back in October. That beatdown will be fresh in the minds of Baltimore head coach John Harbaugh, who will have his team fired up for revenge in a huge divisional clash.
