The who and where of the 2022 NFL schedule has been known since January (with the exception of a few international games that were announced last week), but the NFL has a way of grabbing the sports headlines in the offseason.

Today is one of those days.

Despite the "who" and "where" already being determined, it's the "when" that gets football fans excited.

How many primetime games will your favorite team play in?

Will they be in a cold-weather location early in the season before winter strikes? Or late in the season when the elements will be in full effect?

Will your favorite team have to travel far on a short week for a Thursday game? Or do they get to stay at home?

Major advantages and disadvantages come when the "when" question of the schedule is answered.

As is the case every year, the schedule comes out in pieces throughout the day via leaks.
