The Buffalo Bills will be talked about as a deep playoff contender in 2022 but they have to win the AFC East first and their schedule isn’t exactly a cake walk.

Buffalo will open with two prime games including an opening NFL season Thursday night game against the Super Bowl winning Rams in Los Angeles. They will follow that week up with an early Monday night game a week later against the Titans.

Two big game to start the season before they travel to face the Dolphins in Miami where they will be greeted with sizzling September weather.

The Bills will travel to Baltimore for another big game in the AFC. Three of their first four games are being played against playoff or playoff quality teams and the Dolphins who could make a big jump in 2022 and challenge for a spot as well. Two weeks after the Ravens they face the Chiefs with the Steelers sandwiched inbetween.

The Bills starting schedule is not easy and it will be interesting to see where they will be by week six when they take on the Chiefs in K.C. They could be looking at a .500 record.

Coming back off their bye week in week 7, the Bills face Green Bay in Orchard Park, NY. The rest of their schedule gets much easier after that Green Bay game. They will play the Bengals and Browns which could turn out to be their toughest opponents. They will also face the Patriots twice down the stretch but we are not sure what N.E. will be like this year.

Buffalo will face the Jets, Vikings, Browns, Lions, Patriots, Jets, Dolphins, Bears, Bengals, and Patriots all after their Green Bay game. This is when the Bills could make a big run.
