The NFL already shared a glimpse of their 2022 season schedule by sharing their International Series slate.
For the first time, the league will have a regular-season game in Germany and it will be the Tampa Bay Buccaneers facing the Seattle Seahawks.
That game will be on November 13 at the Allianz Arena, the home of FC Bayern Munich.
But this year’s overseas games will start in London, England with Minnesota Vikings going up against the New Orleans Saints on October 2.
A week later, the New York Giants and the Green Bay Packers will compete.
Both games will be played at Tottenham Hotspur Stadium.
The third NFL London game will feature the Denver Broncos and the Jacksonville Jaguars and it will happen on October 30 at Wembley Stadium.
Completing the games abroad will be the November 21 showdown between the San Francisco 49ers and the Arizona Cardinals at Estadio Azteca in Mexico.
However, football fans can’t wait to see the full schedule to determine how their team will fare in 2022.
That said, Pro Football Focus writer Ari Meirov revealed that the league will share the full schedule gradually.
The full NFL schedule will be released on May 12. But the NFL will also slowly trickle out some games throughout the week.
May 9: ESPN will announce some of their games.
May 10: CBS's turn
May 11: FOX's turn
May 12: NBC's turn + all teams will announce their first home game.

Keeping Up The Excitement Regarding The Schedule
Meirov tweeted that the full schedule will be out by May 12.
But before that day, the league’s broadcast partners can announce some of the games they will cover.
ESPN will announce some of their games on May 9 while CBS will follow the day after.
FOX and NBC will have their turn on May 11 and 12.
The 12th will also see teams announce their first home game.
While the full schedule isn’t certain yet, it’s sort of a hint that CBS usually gets AFC games while FOX gets the NFC.
If there’s an inter-conference game, the away team will determine which network will broadcast.
As a clue, each team will have intra-conference games.
The AFC East will compete against AFC North teams, while the AFC West will face AFC South squads.
The same pairings are also set for NFC teams.
