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

The great waves of free choice are over. The draft is ready. Now all eyes are on the upcoming NFL season. One of the teams with the most remaining question marks is the Falcons. After swinging and missing Deshaun Watson and then handing Matt Ryan to the Colts, Atlanta is seemingly back at number one in a rebuild, with Marcus Mariota and rookie Desmond Ridder in tow down center. Is it possible they could play spoilers from the NFC South?

First, they must make it through their 2022 opponents. Below is a full rundown of the teams set to face the Falcons this year, as well as an overview of their 18-week regular-season schedule (once announced):

Opponent 2022

bears: After a 6-11 season, Chicago is still in rebuild mode, with new coach Matt Eberflus trying to keep young QB Justin Fields and a trimmed roster afloat. Other than an MVP level breakout from Fields, they don’t look too threatening.

Bengal: The reigning AFC champion should be impressive as long as Joe Burrow stands tall. An improved offensive line also bodes well for her explosive offense. Don’t rule out another deep post-season run from this young squad.

Brown: On paper, they have one of the best rosters in the NFL. The question is who is under the middle? Deshaun Watson may be out for an extended suspension. Still, they have the ground game and veteran defense to be a contender.

privateer: As long as Tom Brady is below center, they are dangerous. His weapons should still be elite even as Chris Godwin recovers from an injury. How does taking Todd Bowles on the sidelines affect them, if at all?

cardinals: Is Kyler Murray under middle (and happy)? In that case, Arizona should still be a threat offensively, even with DeAndre Hopkins suspended earlier in the year. They may not be real contenders, but they have the talent to make another playoff run.

Charger: Justin Herbert alone makes them a formidable opponent, but now they’ve stocked up around him too. The defense in particular should be awkward with the addition of big names like Khalil Mack and JC Jackson.

Commanders: They were scrappy at times, and Carson Wentz and Jahan Dotson should give them more offensive advantages. Still, this is a volatile organization with question marks at key points. They’re not meant to be weaklings, but they look beatable, too.

49ers: They’ve been either totally in or out of the mix under Kyle Shanahan, largely dependent on the health of the squad. If Deebo Samuel leaves, their offensive could look very different. And who knows what Trey Lance will bring to QB?

Panthers: On paper they’ve improved, adding a top left tackle (Ikem Ekwonu) to an offense that was in dire need of some help up front. A healthy Christian McCaffrey and DJ Moore give them guns but the QB situation remains a big question mark.

Aries: The reigning Super Bowl champions did reasonably well this offseason, retaining some core values ​​while showing off others (Allen Robinson) to keep Matthew Stafford happy. Sean McVay’s side still looks like an attacking juggernaut.

Ravens: Lamar Jackson’s long-term future here is cloudy at the moment, but he is set for a rebound along with the rest of a healthier cast. Even without “Hollywood” Brown, they have power when fully sane, especially on a reissued “D”.

saints: They have a new coach (sort of) in Dennis Allen, but the plays are generally there to make them competitive again. Can Jameis Winston stay sane and upright? That’s the biggest X factor.

Seahawks: Who is playing QB? If Pete Carroll is really rolling with Geno Smith or Drew Lock, their upper limit is limited. But if they double down on run-first attack, they could still be a tough game, especially when Charles Cross comes in on the left tackle and a defense can’t be much worse than last year.

Steeler: No matter what, there will be hiccups in the QB, which is where rookie Kenny Pickett could start. But Mike Tomlin always makes them competitive, and the defense, featuring both fresh and established talent, should remain one of the NFL’s best.
