The NFL kicked off the 2022 season on Thursday night with an exciting game between the defending Super Bowl Champion Los Angeles Rams and Buffalo Bills. Even though the Bills were playing much better than the Rams in the first half, they were tied 10-10 at halftime. In the second half, the Bills took over, winning the game 31-10 in convincing fashion.
The majority of the league's fans will see their team play on Sunday, which also features a few intriguing matchups. The headliner locally is, of course, the hometown Detroit Lions hosting the Philadelphia Eagles which should have your full attention at 1 p.m. ET. Then, in the second set of games, keep an eye on the Chiefs at Cardinals, and finally the Buccaneers at Cowboys on “Sunday Night Football”. Additionally, “Monday Night Football” also offers an intriguing storyline, as Russell Wilson and the Denver Broncos return to Seattle to take on his former team, the Seahawks.
