2022 NFL Schedule Release: Commanders Opponents, Previews, Full List of Teams in Regular Season Schedule

It’s truly a new era for the Washington Commanders as they have a new name, new uniforms and new quarterback in Carson Wentz. It remains to be seen if he’s a patch or a player with franchise quarterback potential, but Ron Rivera and company rank him higher than any other team in the NFL.

There’s reason to believe Washington could be on the mend in 2022 as Curtis Samuel is expected to finally be healthy. Washington also added a new wide receiver in Jahan Dotson and some defensive playmakers.

Below we give a full rundown of the teams set to play Washington this year while we await the release of the official schedule on May 12th. This article will be updated once the schedule is official.

Opponent 2022


Dallas Cowboys: Washington’s archrival and reigning champion of the NFC East. These are the first two editions of the renamed Cowboys vs. Commanders rivalry. Dallas won both games last season and December 26th in Dallas was tough as the Cowboys defeated the football team 56-14 outright.

New York Giants: Washington won both games against New York last year, but the Giants have a new front office and head coach. They also had a great draft, picking arguably the top two players in the class in pass rusher Kayvon Thibodeaux and offensive lineman Evan Neal. It could be difficult for Commanders to sweep the season streak again.

Philly Eagles: The Eagles made it into the playoffs as a wildcard last year, and after the offseason they had, Philly could be back in the postseason. Howie Roseman drafted two of the best players from arguably the best defense in college football history and traded for star wideout AJ Brown.

Minnesota Vikings: It’s a reunion with Kevin O’Connell! The former Washington offensive coordinator was in the running to be hired as the new head coach a few years ago and now he’s making his own appearance with the Vikings. Minnesota has two dominant guns in Dalvin Cook and Justin Jefferson, so it will be interesting to see how different this offense looks.

Green Bay packers: Washington lost to Green Bay last year by 14 points. Aaron Rodgers lost Davante Adams, but you can’t rule that team out. Green Bay has won 13 games in three straight seasons.

Tennessee Titans: The Titans have won the AFC South back-to-back seasons, but will anything change? They sold AJ Brown this offseason, and now Ryan Tannehill has a younger quarterback breathing down his neck. Still, Derrick Henry is a force to be reckoned with.

Jacksonville Jaguars: The Jaguars will be an interesting team this season with Doug Pederson in charge now. Will Trevor Lawrence make a big leap forward in Year 2, or will this team remain in the NFL’s basement?

Cleveland Browns: For the Browns, we’re awaiting the NFL’s decision on Deshaun Watson. Will he be suspended or not? Perhaps Washington will get Cleveland early in the season and avoid facing Watson.

Atlanta Falcons: The Falcons have an amazing team this year. They have a new quarterback who will be either Marcus Mariota or Desmond Ridder, a rising star at the tight end in Kyle Pitts and a new receiver in Drake London. However, it remains to be seen whether this defense has improved.

Chicago Bears: The Bears are another team with a young quarterback and a brand new lead. Justin Fields showed some highlights in his rookie season, but does he have the weapons to do something special in 2022?

Detroit Lions: The Lions are unlikely to be fighting for a Lombardi Trophy in 2022, but this squad plays a big part for Dan Campbell. If you don’t show up on Sunday, the lions may surprise you. Detroit picked two Impact players in the first round of the 2022 NFL Draft in pass rusher Aidan Hutchinson and wide receiver Jameson Williams.

Houston Texans: Davis Mills will be Houston’s quarterback in 2022, and he’s shown some good things in his rookie season — particularly in the red zone. The Texans also picked up some potential Impact players in the draft. Among them are cornerback Derek Stingley Jr., offensive lineman Kenyon Green, safety Jalen Pitre and wide receiver John Metchie III.

Indianapolis Colts: Another year, another quarterback for the Colts. Matt Ryan said CBS Sports however, he’s rejuvenated by this change of scenery, and this team can certainly make the playoffs. They’re potentially a lot better than the 9-8 team they were in 2021.

San Francisco 49ers: This team could be either a Super Bowl sleeper or a disappointing flop in 2022. Trey Lance is the new quarterback, and then we don’t know what the future holds for Deebo Samuel.
