NFL preseason schedule 2022: Dates, times, TV channels for every game, week by week

The 2022 NFL schedule has been released. Now, fans are going to turn their attention to when next they will see their teams on the field.

This will be the second season in which teams have only three preseason games — with the lone exceptions being those two teams that play in the Hall of Fame Game to kick off the year. 

NFL viewers certainly won't mind the shortened preseason. After all, that means one extra game in the regular season and one week closer to the start of the regular season, which starts on Sept. 8 in a Thursday matchup between the Rams and Bills.
