When it comes to NFL news, you have so many options. You can read about a team that is currently on the schedule or you can learn about the team that will be on the schedule in the future. In this article, we will be looking at what you should know about the Miami Dolphins, the Dallas Cowboys, and the Baltimore Ravens.
The Miami Dolphins may not have the most prolific team, but they certainly put together a solid season and will play in the wild-card round for the first time in six years. During their eight-game run, the Dolphins have lost five games, but they have only lost two of the last six, and they have defeated two of the league’s top teams, the New England Patriots and Cincinnati Bengals.
While they’re not expected to win in the regular season, they have to get past the Buffalo Bills in order to earn a spot in the playoffs. That means a potential trip to the Super Bowl.
The Dolphins have made a couple of moves this week to elevate players on the practice squad. Running back La’Mical Perine was elevated from the practice squad to the active roster. He’s been an effective rusher, averaging 3.7 YPC on 72 carries, with two touchdowns. In addition, offensive lineman Lester Cotton has been elevated to the starting lineup.
The Dallas Cowboys are in the thick of a playoff race with the Philadelphia Eagles. Their NFC East division is the best in football through Week 9.
Dallas has won five Super Bowls and tied for the second most in franchise history. It has also had consecutive 12-win seasons. That’s why they’re in the mix for a playoff spot. In fact, they could get as high as No. 24 in the NFL draft in 2022.
They’re currently 4-3 in the NFC and play the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in week one. But they have two key players on the injured reserve list: Jayron Kearse and Dak Prescott.
Prescott is recovering from a broken thumb. He’s scheduled to have stitches removed on Monday. However, the Dallas Cowboys haven’t given any assurance that he’ll be back in time for the Week 7 game against the Detroit Lions.
The Baltimore Ravens made four roster moves on Saturday. They added a wide receiver to the practice squad, upgraded a player on the active roster, and added an offensive lineman to the active roster.
The Ravens were banged up on the field, however, and had to rest several key players. Their offense, however, was able to move the ball, and they scored 37 points.
The Ravens are going to need a full week of practice to prepare for their playoff game against the Cincinnati Bengals. It is possible that they will lean on the ground game, as their offense was a solid 5.2 yards per carry.
The Baltimore Ravens have not been the best defensive team in recent years, but they’ve also been a solid scoring team. In fact, they ranked third in the league in scoring.
Tampa Bay Buccaneers
The Tampa Bay Buccaneers are the reigning NFC South champions and are on track to make the playoffs. They are also one of the most complete teams in the NFL. But the team is still struggling to get the attention of other teams.
One of the major issues facing the Buccaneers is their injury situation. Aside from quarterback Jameis Winston, there are a number of players who are hurt or dealing with suspensions. Another is wide receiver Mike Evans, who was suspended for a game this season.
The Buccaneers have not been very good at home this season. This means that their schedule is going to be very difficult. As of right now, they are averaging just a meager eight points per game at their home field.
NFL 2022 home schedule
The NFL released its schedule for the upcoming 2022 season. It will feature 272 regular season games, one preseason game, five games in Europe, and two games in Mexico. In addition, the league will extend its playoffs to 14 teams for the third straight year.
Aside from the usual suspects, the schedule features some intriguing matchups. The AFC will face off against the NFC in three of the four divisional games. On the other hand, the NFC will play host to nine home games.
Not surprisingly, the league’s most successful team, the Seattle Seahawks, will make its debut in Germany in Week 10. Another notable game is the NFL’s first-ever international game, a rematch between the Buccaneers and the Seattle Seahawks.
