The NFL announced the complete 2022 schedule on Thursday, and the New England Patriots are officially set to kick off their 2022 season at the Miami Dolphins at 1 p.m. ET on CBS. This, of course, is a divisional game and their next one will come in Week 8 at the New York Jets.

New England had a 10-7 record in 2021 and finished second in the AFC East. They made the playoffs but lost in the wildcard round to the Buffalo Bills. In separate deals, the Pats traded for wide receiver DeVante Parker and linebacker Mack Wilson. In typical Bill Belichick fashion, New England took an unknown offensive guard with their first draft pick. They also drafted Baylor WR Tyquan Thornton in the second round to try and give quarterback Mac Jones more weapons.

All times listed are Eastern.
