Buffalo, winner of the last two AFC East titles, is a Super Bowl favorite in the eyes of many and will look to start its campaign with a resounding statement against the reigning champions, who have Stafford and much of their title-winning cast back, along with some high-profile additions such as wide receiver Allen Robinson and linebacker Bobby Wagner.

In addition to the Bills-Rams kickoff showdown, the league announced each team’s home openers.

There is no shortage of highly anticipated prime-time tilts to get the season started.

Dak Prescott and the Dallas Cowboys will open up the Sunday Night Football slate against Tom Brady and the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in a rematch of last season’s NFL Kickoff Game.

The first Monday Night Football game of the year will be a homecoming for the ages as Russell Wilson and the Denver Broncos head to the Pacific Northwest to play Wilson’s old squad, the Seattle Seahawks.

A week later, a Week 2 Monday night doubleheader will see the Bills and Philadelphia Eagles open up their home schedules.

The first Prime Video game of the season — in Week 2 — will also serve as the Kansas City Chiefs’ home opener, as they welcome the rival Los Angeles Chargers.

Take a look at each NFL team’s home openers below, and the complete regular-season schedule will be revealed tonight at 8 ET on NFL Network and NFL.com.

Week 1

Buffalo Bills
Buffalo Bills

Los Angeles Rams
Los Angeles Rams
  • Where: SoFi Stadium | Inglewood, Calif.
  • When: 8:20 pm ET on Thursday, Sept. eight
  • How to watch: NBC

Bills quarterback Josh Allen and Rams QB Matthew Stafford combined for 77 touchdowns last season. In other words, this has all the makings of a shootout — though the game does feature LA defensive lineman Aaron Donald, arguably the best defensive player in the world. Another pass rusher of note in this one is Von Miller, who helped the Rams win the Super Bowl last season before departing for Buffalo and a lucrative contract in the offseason.

New Orleans Saints

Atlanta Falcons
Atlanta Falcons
  • Where: Mercedes-Benz Stadium | Atlanta
  • When: 1 pm ET on Sunday, Sept. eleven
  • How to watch: Fox

Dennis Allen will debut as Saints head coach against the team’s archrival, but the game should also showcase an interesting QB matchup. Atlanta, which has lost its last four at home versus New Orleans, is poised to start Marcus Mariota, while the Saints are planning to have Jameis Winston back in the starting lineup after he tore his ACL last year. The matchup would pit the no. 2 selection of the 2015 NFL Draft, Mariota (Tennessee Titans), versus the No. 1 overall pick in 2015, Winston (Tampa Bay Buccaneers).

Cleveland Browns

Carolina Panthers
Carolina Panthers
  • Where: Bank of America Stadium | Charlotte, NC
  • When: 1 pm ET on Sunday, Sept. eleven
  • How to watch: CBS

Two squads linked by trade talks all offseason will kick off the season in Charlotte. While much of the conversation will be about who’s starting at QB for each squad Week 1, this matchup will also feature two of the top pass rushers in the NFL. The Browns’ Myles Garrett and the Panthers’ Brian Burns are each coming off Pro Bowl campaigns in which they registered 16 and nine sacks, respectively. This will also mark the return to the field of Panthers running back Christian McCaffrey after his 2021 season was cut short due to injury.

Chicago Bears
Chicago Bears
  • Where: Soldier Field | Chicago
  • When: 1 pm ET on Sunday, Sept. eleven
  • How to watch: Fox

Matt Eberflus’ first game as Bears head coach will provide a staunch test, as Chicago hosts a San Francisco squad that marched to the NFC Championship Game a season ago. Atop the marquee will be 2021 NFL Draft first-round quarterbacks Trey Lance and Justin Fields, who are projected to lead their respective squads into this season-opening clash.

Pittsburgh Steelers

Cincinnati Bengals
Cincinnati Bengals
  • Where: Paul Brown Stadium | Cincinnati
  • When: 1 pm ET on Sunday, Sept. eleven
  • How to watch: CBS

Joe Burrow and the Bengals are back after their Super Bowl run, leading off their 2022 season with a home game. After their memorable 2021 campaign, the Bengals will play in front of their home crowd for the first time since an AFC wild-card win over the Raiders. They’ll face the rival Steelers, who will head into a season opener without Ben Roethlisberger starting for the first time since 2010.

Philadelphia Eagles
Philadelphia Eagles

Detroit Lions
Detroit Lions
  • Where: Ford Field | Detroit
  • When: 1 pm ET on Sunday, Sept. eleven
  • How to watch: Fox

The NFL debut of 2022 NFL Draft No. 2 overall pick and Michigan product Aidan Hutchinson will come in front of the Ford Field faithful. Hutchinson is likely to have a high-profile matchup against Eagles standout left tackle Jordan Mailata and will need to get his motor running to track down fleet-footed Philly QB Jalen Hurts.

Indianapolis Colts
Indianapolis Colts

Houston-Texans
Houston-Texans
  • Where: NRG Stadium | Houston
  • When: 1 pm ET on Sunday, Sept. eleven
  • How to watch: CBS

The Lovie Smith era in Houston kicks off with quarterback Davis Mills’ first Week 1 start. Opposing the Texans will be the AFC South-rival Colts, who will have quarterback Matt Ryan making his horseshoe debut and the NFL’s most dynamic running back in Jonathan Taylor ready to follow up his astounding 2021 campaign.

New England Patriots

Miami Dolphins
Miami Dolphins
  • Where: Hard Rock Stadium | Miami Gardens, Fla.
  • When: 1 pm ET on Sunday, Sept. eleven

Mike McDaniel will make his head coaching debut opposite perhaps the greatest coach of all time, Bill Belichick. Miami is overflowing with new talent such as Tyreek Hill, Terron Armstead and Chase Edmonds, who will all make their first South Beach impressions against a consistently staunch Patriots defense.

Baltimore Ravens
Baltimore Ravens

New York Jets
New York Jets
  • Where: MetLife Stadium | East Rutherford, NJ
  • When: 1 pm ET on Sunday, Sept. eleven
  • How to watch: CBS

One of the most heralded draft classes in recent memory will make its professional debut at MetLife against one of the AFC’s consistently successful clubs. Sauce Gardner, Garrett Wilson, Jermaine Johnson II and Breece Hall — first three-rounders and the top running back of the draft — will make their much-anticipated first impressions for Gang Green.

Jacksonville Jaguars
Jacksonville Jaguars

Washington Commanders
Washington Commanders
  • Where: FedEx Field | Landover, Md.
  • When: 1 pm ET on Sunday, Sept. eleven
  • How to watch: Fox

The Carson Wentz experience begins in the nation’s capital as the Washington franchise plays its first game as the Commanders. They’ll see a familiar face across from them, though, as Doug Pederson makes his coaching debut with the Jaguars after previously coaching the Eagles for five seasons.
