Depending on what happens with Aaron Rodgers’ future, the NFC North could be one of the weaker divisions in the NFL in 2022.
Packers (Home) – Will Rodgers stay? What was once a strained relationship has apparently begun to mend, but it is no guarantee that the likely-MVP will be back in Green Bay in 2022. But if he does return, then DeVante Adams likely will as well, which would make this game against the Packers the most difficult one on the Dolphins’ schedule.
Vikings (Home) – The Vikings are one of those teams that could beat any team but can also lose to bottom-feeders. The Dolphins will get to avoid a loud Minneapolis crowd as the game will be played in Miami, but it will be the Vikings wide receivers who the home team will be most worried about.
Lions – Detroit was one of the league’s worst teams in 2021, but there is a lot of hope about head coach Dan Campbell. They could add some pieces to make them a respectable team again, but this is the Lions, after all.
Bears – Games against the AFC North in the winter months can be brutal, and would be for the Dolphins if their game against the Bears is scheduled in December or January. The immediate future of Chicago’s franchise is in limbo, and it remains to be seen if this will be a winnable game for Miami.
