The 2022 NFL season is weeks away, and teams are wrapping up their preparations.
With only one week of preseason left, coaches will proceed with the difficult decision of cutting down their rosters to 53 men.
Their performance in their final tune-up games could still sway their decision of whether to keep or dump a player.
But as the regular season draws near, the NFL is already hyping up football fans with the help of Seattle Seahawks wide receiver DK Metcalf.

The league’s official Twitter account reads, “What’[email protected] got everyone so hyped for? Get fired up for #Kickoff2022 on 9.8.22.”
Metcalf is hyping up the crowd by screaming and catching a football.
The video is set to Dr. Dre’s “Still D.R.E” and the second to the last frame reads “It Feels Good To Football.”
The 2022 NFL season will start on September 8 when the Buffalo Bills face the Los Angeles Rams in what could be a preview for Super Bowl LVII.
Meanwhile, opening weekend is set on September 11 to 12, and there’s drama involved in the Seahawks’ Week 1 game.
Metcalf and company will play on Monday Night Football against the Denver Broncos, the team that traded for longtime Seattle quarterback Russell Wilson this offseason.
The former Ole Miss standout has a lot to prove this season after agreeing to a three-year, $72 million contract extension this offseason.
Other Notable Week 1 Games
Aside from Rams versus Bills and Seahawks versus Broncos, Baker Mayfield and the Carolina Panthers will also face the Cleveland Browns.
Meanwhile, New York Jets quarterback Joe Flacco might face his former team, the Baltimore Ravens.
The Kansas City Chiefs will face the Arizona Cardinals, while the Tampa Bay Buccaneers compete with the Dallas Cowboys.
The Los Angeles Chargers will also clash with the Las Vegas Raiders in an AFC West showdown.
