2022 NFL schedule released: Cowboys opponents, previews, full list of regular season schedule teams


The Dallas Cowboys head into another season with high expectations, looking to become the first team to repeat as NFC East champions since the Philadelphia Eagles accomplished the feat from 2001-04. La’El Collins in free agency, making the road to repeat much harder than expected.

Dallas still has Dak Prescott at quarterback and CeeDee Lamb and Michael Gallup at wide receiver. Ezekiel Elliott returns to running back in his quest for a rebounding season (his yards per game have fallen in every season since entering the league), while Tony Pollard should provide even more explosive plays for the offense n #1 in points scored and total yards last season.

Dan Quinn will return to lead the defense in Year Two, led by the reigning Defensive Rookie of the Year in Micah Parsons and the league’s interceptions leader in Trevon Diggs. The Cowboys will have to work through their playoff issues to be Super Bowl contenders, even if they have a roster talented enough to make it happen.

The Cowboys’ 2002 season will be another exciting season as Dallas continues to compete for NFC supremacy. Below, you’ll find a full rundown of the teams that will face the Cowboys this year, as well as a look at their 18-week regular season schedule (once announced).

The full 2022 NFL schedule will be released Thursday, May 12 at 8:00 p.m. ET on NFL Network, NFL.com and the NFL App. NFL GameDay View: Schedule Release airs that night at 8 p.m. ET on Paramount+NFL.com, the NFL App, YouTube and the NFL Channel.

2022 opponents

Eagles (home, away): Philadelphia should be Dallas’ biggest challenger in the NFC East as the Cowboys secondary will be tested with AJ Brown and DeVonta Smith. Dallas swept Philadelphia last season as one of the matchups has played out in prime time every year since 2003.

Commanders (home, away): Dallas will see Carson Wentz twice a year as Wentz returns to the NFC East with Washington. Dallas swept Washington in 2021 and won five of its last seven games against the Commanders.

Giants (home, away): The Cowboys will face a familiar foe in Daniel Jones, but they will have a new head coach in Brian Daboll. Dallas swept New York last year and the Cowboys have won nine of their last 10 against the Giants.

Bear (house): Dallas will see Justin Fields for the first time, as the Cowboys haven’t faced the Bears at home since 2016. Like the rest of the NFC East, the Cowboys will be targeting a rebuilding Bears team.

Lions (home): The Lions haven’t beaten Dallas since the 2013 season, with the Cowboys winning four straight against them. The traditional hosts of the Thanksgiving Games will face off for the first time since 2019.

Texans (home): The Texas rivalry resumes between the Cowboys and Texans, this time at AT&T Stadium — where the Texans fell in their only appearance (2014). Houston has never beaten Dallas on the road.

Foals (home): The Cowboys will see Matt Ryan in a different uniform as this game will be one of the toughest home games on the schedule. Indianapolis hasn’t beaten Dallas on the road since 1984 – the Colts’ first year in Indianapolis.

Buccaneers (house): Tom Brady comes to AT&T Stadium for the first time as a member of the Buccaneers, a rematch of last year’s season-opening thriller in Tampa Bay. Brady last played for Dallas in 2015.

Bengals (home): The Cowboys will be seeing Joe Burrow for the first time as the game against defending champions AFC will be a hot ticket. Cincinnati hasn’t beaten Dallas in Dallas since 1988.

Packers (outside): The Cowboys head to Lambeau Field to take on Aaron Rodgers and the Packers in a battle for NFC supremacy. Dallas has lost three in a row to Green Bay, with the last victory dating back to 2016.

Jaguars (away): The Cowboys have their first look at Trevor Lawrence, but face an old enemy in Jaguars coach Doug Pederson – coached the Eagles from 2016-2020. Dallas is making his first Jacksonville appearance since 2014.

Titans (away): Cowboys fans are sure to have a party in Nashville as Dallas takes on defending champions AFC South. Dallas hasn’t lost to Nashville since Christmas Day 2000, but Derrick Henry will be a tough task.

Vikings (outside): Another clash between the Cowboys and the Vikings, who are meeting for the fourth straight year – the third straight in Minnesota. The Cowboys won both games.

Rams (outside): The Cowboys face the defending NFC champions on their third straight trip to SoFi Stadium (the Chargers played there last season and the Rams in 2020). Dallas hasn’t beaten the Los Angeles Rams since 1990.
