The NFL announced the complete 2022 schedule on Thursday, and the Cleveland Browns are officially set to kick off their 2022 season at the Carolina Panthers at 1 p.m. ET on CBS. Their first divisional game will be in Week 3 at home against the Pittsburgh Steelers for Thursday Night Football.

The Browns went 8-9 in 2021, finishing in third place in the AFC North. They were part of probably the biggest trade of the offseason acquiring Deshaun Watson from the Houston Texans. This move caused them to be on the outs with former #1 overall pick Baker Mayfield. Cleveland also brought in wide receiver Amari Cooper via trade. The Browns selected Purdue WR David Bell in the third round and took the first kicker, Cade York, of the draft in the fourth round.

All times listed are Eastern.
