Full screen: Buccaneers Front and Center in 2022 NFL schedule

The Buccaneers have eight games scheduled against playoff teams starting in 2021, including all four conference championship games. Not included in that are 2022 opponents Baltimore, Cleveland, Seattle and New Orleans, all of which were in the playoffs in 2020 and could reasonably be considered strong playoff contenders this year.

The NFL has introduced an improved schedule in 2021 that covers 17 games per team over 18 weeks, this year ending Jan. 8. The Buccaneers get their bye in the second half of this schedule, in Week 11, with 10 games before and seven after. The added game is a fifth interconference game, with the Buccaneers drawing the Chiefs for a Super Bowl LV rematch.

As previously announced, Tampa Bay’s 2022 schedule also notably includes the first game ever played in Germany. The Buccaneers were the designated team for this competition, which will take place at the Allianz Arena in Munich, and will face the Seattle Seahawks. This game will replace the normal NFC home ninth game.

Below is the Buccaneers game schedule for 2022, including the list of three preseason games still awaiting specific dates and times, followed by more notes (all times Eastern):
