All 272 games for the 2022 NFL schedule will be released on Thursday, May 12. As is custom, though, there will be leaks — and official announcements — leading up to the release this Thursday.
So far, the league has announced its international slate of games, which is rather expansive: Three of the five international games will be played in London, another in Mexico City and one all the way out in Germany. (Sprechen sie football?)
