Biggest Winners and Losers of the 2022 NFL Full Schedule Release

The NFL calendar keeps on bringing significant events, even though we’re in the middle of the offseason. After the 2022 NFL draft wrapped up, the full schedule release was the next big thing for fans to expect. Regardless of whether we realized who might play one another, we presently know the logistical details for each team.

The difference between playing two competitors in a row across the country contrasted with two bottom-feeders in a row at home is gigantic. The league is likewise pretty much as deep as it has at any point been, so the margin for error in a few divisions is little. Losing one or two unexpected games can totally change the playoff picture.

We’re jumping into the 2022 NFL schedule release to track down the two biggest winners and two biggest losers. The winners should in any case change over on their chance the losers actually can defeat their first obstacle. A Super Bowl journey isn’t finished without a little luck.

Winner: Indianapolis Colts

The Colts are coming off an excellent offseason when they added a veteran quarterback in Matt Ryan, a star cornerback in Stephon Gilmore, and a high-upside pass-rusher in Yannick Ngakoue. This was the ideal opportunity for Chris Ballard to push his chips in on a quality roster and he executed well.

The Colts are now looking favorable so far in 2022 after evaluating their schedule. They have the most straightforward schedule, as per DraftKings’ team win projections. Their intrinsic benefit starts with AFC South bottom feeders in Houston and Jacksonville.

Indianapolis likewise plays the NFC East. Both Dallas and Philadelphia are quality teams, however, neither is head-and-shoulders better compared to the Colts. As a division, the NFC East has just a single team projected to win more games than lose.

Getting the Los Angeles Chargers and Kansas City Chiefs at home are additionally remarkable benefits. Ryan will be depended upon to be the difference in these games. Carson Wentz couldn’t be confided in the most basic games of the year and was the primary factor in collapsing down the stretch of 2021.

There’s as yet a tough patch for the Colts to manage. Going making progress toward facing Denver, Dallas, New England, and Minnesota is outstanding. Altogether, they face nine teams with 8.5 or more projected wins.

Unfortunately, this schedule release might have been a lot more regrettable for the Colts’ playoff hopes. Opening at Houston and Jacksonville ought to prompt basically a 2-1 start. They finish the year at the New York Giants and home against the Texans.

They’ll likewise have four prime-time games.

Loser: Kansas City Chiefs

No team has a more challenging schedule in terms of oddsmakers’ win totals than the Chiefs. The arms race in the AFC West influenced this formula, as every one of the team’s six games against the Chargers, Raiders, and Broncos will be a fight. Also, the Chiefs drew the first-place schedule since they won the division last year.

The bad news is the Chiefs likewise need to manage the stacked NFC West. Three teams in the NFC West will win 8.5 or more matches. The Chiefs will depend on youngsters Trent McDuffie, George Karlaftis, and Skyy Moore a lot, so the focus will be on youthful players to step in immediately.

The Chiefs likewise play Cincinnati, Tampa Bay, Buffalo, Tennessee, and Indianapolis. They’re completely projected to win 9.5 games. The only positive is they have home games against Tennessee, Los Angeles, and Buffalo.

The three potential simple games are Houston, Seattle, and Jacksonville. Andy Reid and Patrick Mahomes will deserve it on the off chance that they can win the AFC West.

Winner: Philadelphia Eagles

In the wake of working on their program by adding star receiver A.J. Brown, pass-rusher Haason Reddick, and a draft pull featured by mammoth nose tackle Jordan Davis, the Eagles have only one question mark at quarterback. Assuming Jalen Hurts is prepared to be a franchise passer, the Eagles are a major sleeper in the NFC race. Their favorable schedule will likewise assist Hurts with arriving at his ceiling.

Getting the second-easiest schedule per win totals will ease the pressure off Philadelphia from being required to go hard and fast the entire season. Away games against Chicago, Detroit, and Houston ought to win on paper. Then, at that point, factor in divisional games against Washington and New York, and it’s not hard to see a pathway to double-digit wins.

The hard games incorporate home games against Green Bay, Minnesota, Pittsburgh, and Tennessee. Notwithstanding, just Green Bay can say it has a preferable overall roster than Philadelphia right now.

The three-week stretch from Nov. 20 through Dec. 4 includes a trip to Indianapolis and the home games against the Packers and Titans. In any case, it’ll be difficult for the Eagles to grumble when their rivals’ 2021 win percentage was .464, 30th of all teams.

Loser: Green Bay Packers

Teams that are given the feared London trip generally get an extreme draw. Rather than getting a bye after making a trip to London against the New York Giants in Week 5, the Packers host the New York Jets the next Sunday. Week 7 features a road game at Washington after the Commanders partake in a home game.

The next five weeks have a few troublesome fights also. After Washington, Green Bay goes to Buffalo and afterward Detroit. That is followed by a midafternoon home game against Dallas on Nov. 13 followed by hosting Tennessee on Thursday Night Football four nights later.

Their reward after Tennessee is a Sunday Night Football match-up at Philadelphia to finish off November.

The Packers are traveling a crazy amount without much rest. Getting the London game so early and afterward holding on until Week 14 for their bye week is unpleasant. Green Bay is a highly talented team yet will go through the gauntlet.
