The NFL released the Atlanta Falcons schedule on Thursday. We break it down, including a full list of games, prime-time matchups, and strength of schedule.

The NFL announced the complete 2022 schedule on Thursday, and the Atlanta Falcons are officially set to kick off their 2022 season at home against the New Orleans Saints at 1 p.m. ET on Fox. That, of course, will be their first division game of the season and their next one will take place in Week 5 at the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

The Falcons went 7-10 in the 2021 season and finished third in the NFC South, missing out on the playoffs. Atlanta added quarterback Marcus Mariota in free agency after trading longtime QB Matt Ryan to the Indianapolis Colts. They re-signed running back Cordarelle Patterson to a two-year, $10.5 million deal and cornerback Casey Heyward to a two-year, $11 million contract. They used the eighth overall pick in the 2022 NFL Draft to select USC WR Drake London, addressing a considerable team need.

All times listed are Eastern.
