2022 NFL Schedule Release: Dolphins Opponents, Preview, Full List of Teams in Regular Season Schedule

The Miami Dolphins finished 9-8 last season and finished third in the AFC East. They had just one win fewer than second-placed New England Patriots last year and could be in danger of finishing second in the division this year.

It’s hard to imagine them dethroning the Buffalo Bills, who are clearly the best team in their division, but the Dolphins are no easy W for any opponent like they have been in the past.

Below is a full rundown of the teams set to take on Miami this year, along with an overview of their 18-week regular-season schedule (once announced):

Opponents 2022:

Buffalo Bills: Last season, the Dolphins lost both matchups against the Bills, with the first game against Buffalo ending in a blowout. The Bills have the upper hand again this year, but the Dolphins could at least split their two encounters.

New England Patriots: I predict the Patriots and Dolphins will be close in standings next year, so these encounters between the two AFC East teams will be crucial. New England quarterback Mac Jones is entering his sophomore year and will likely show even more composure in the pocket and better pass decision making. However, he will be without offensive coordinator Josh McDaniels, who has taken a head coaching job with the Raiders.

New York Jets: Another rival of the division, but this one is less dangerous. The Jets had a good offseason and their drafting was superior across the board. The addition of corner sauce Gardner, receiver Garrett Wilson, pass rusher Jermaine Johnson II and running back Breece Hall will certainly help keep them from becoming the laughing stock of the AFC.

Cleveland Browns: The Browns offense is now led by quarterback Deshaun Watson, but the team still has quarterback Baker Mayfield on its roster. Teams have been rumored to be interested in acquiring Mayfield, but for now the team still has the QB on the team.

Green Bay packers: After much drama and rumor, quarterback Aaron Rodgers is back. No. 12 will be without Davante Adams this season, who was traded to the Raiders. Wherever Rodgers is, there’s an expectation of making the playoffs, and as his years in the NFL begin to dwindle, the urgency of winning a second championship is greater than ever.

Houston Texans: The Texans are counting on Davis Mills as QB1 this season. The team had a solid draft, including cornerback Derek Stingley Jr., guard Kenyon Green and safety Jalen Pitre in the first two rounds – all of whom could prove to be long-term starters.

Minnesota Vikings: The Vikings’ offensive, with weapons like Dalvin Cook and Justin Jefferson, will be watched this season. The Vikings definitely have potential and will have a new leadership with head coach Kevin O’Connell replacing Mike Zimmer. Last season, the Vikings finished 8-9 and finished second in their division behind the Green Bay Packers.

Pittsburgh Steelers: There has been a lot of quarterback movement in the league this offseason, including for the Steelers. Veteran quarterback Ben Roethlisberger retired, leaving the team’s longtime starter unknown. Pittsburgh has Mitchell Trubisky and Mason Rudolph and drafted Kenny Pickett from Pitt in the first round.

Baltimore Ravens: The Ravens went 8-9 last season and were bottom of their division. When they played the Dolphins in 2021, they lost 22-10. Injuries plagued the team last year, but if they stay healthy, Lamar Jackson can once again top the NFL quarterbacks list.

Chicago Bears: Quarterback Justin Fields definitely showed potential last season, but all the pieces to the team’s success weren’t in place and it was obvious that Fields is a young QB. A year under his belt and a new head coach in Matt Eberflus could make a difference this year. I still expect the Bears to struggle, but I think Fields will benefit from a better supporting cast.

Cincinnati Bengal: The Bengals are the defending champions of the AFC and will once again pose a threat in the conference. Quarterback Joe Burrow is expected to only get better and more confident with the added experience from the playoffs.

Detroit Lions: The Lions took out Aidan Hutchinson for a second overall pick. The team went 3-13-1 last season, but with Hutchinson, linebacker Malcolm Rodriguez and edge Josh Paschal, the team could be resolute this season.

Chargers from Los Angeles: Justin Herbert is a solid leader for the roster and he will look to take another step forward in Year 3. The Chargers received a C for their draft from CBS Sports, but their top pick was first-round offensive lineman Zion Johnson.

San Francisco 49ers: The 49ers came close to making an appearance in the Super Bowl last year but lost to the Los Angeles Rams in the NFC Championship. The team has quarterbacks Jimmy Garoppolo and Trey Lance both on its roster. The big question mark for the team is what will happen to star Deebo Samuel.
