The NFL announced the complete 2022 schedule on Thursday, and the Buffalo Bills are officially set to kick off their 2022 season at the Los Angeles Rams in the season opener on Thursday, Sep. 8 at 8:20 p.m. ET on NBC. Their first divisional game will be in Week 3 against the Miami Dolphins on the road.

The Buffalo Bills went 11-6 in 2021 and won the AFC East. In the first round of the playoffs, they took down the New England Patriots but fell to the Kansas City Chiefs in overtime in the divisional round. Their biggest free-agent signing was a huge six-year, $120 million deal to outside linebacker Von Miller. Buffalo’s big draft picks were taking cornerback Kaiir Elam in the first round and following that up with running back James Cook in the second.

All times listed are Eastern.
