Don’t miss a potential Super Bowl preview this Thursday as the Los Angeles Rams take on the Buffalo Bills
The 2022 NFL preseason has seen some chaos with a fair amount of star quarterbacks and receivers landing with new teams. With the preseason now in the books, the NFL’s second ever 18-week regular season is set to kick off in a little over 24 hours.
Week 1 is featuring very exciting matchups, especially the first one. The official football season will begin in Los Angeles, where the Rams captured their Super Bowl last season, hosting the Buffalo Bills in Thursday Night Football.
While the season starts with a potential Super Bowl preview, Week 1 concludes with another highly anticipated matchup in the Pacific Northwest.
Here’s the full schedule for Week 1:

Thursday Night Football preview:
While the Rams will be attempting to prove they’re starting the season where they left off, the Bills are actually favorites to win it all this year.
Not to mention that the Bills own the all-time series lead against the Southern California team, going 8-5 in their 13 meetings since 1970. Most recently in 2020, the Rams lost the last two meetings with the Bills.
The Rams have only faced Buffalo twice since they moved back to LA, but allowed at least 30 points in each of those two matchups. This will not be a walk in the park for the Rams, and it will be great to see just how prepared the Super Bowl champions are.
