Football is four months away, and the NFL reminded everyone about the upcoming season by releasing the schedules of all 32 teams Thursday.

To mark the occasion, several NFL teams got their creative juices going in revealing their schedules.

From video games to anime to bad animation and famous faces, here are some of the best schedule reveals from teams across the league:


Arizona Cardinals

The Cardinals are apparently fans of the “Flappy Bird” game and incorporated it into their schedule reveal.

Atlanta Falcons

The Falcons rolled out their schedule with some Easter eggs fans can find.

Carolina Panthers

The Panthers must be big ‘90s fans in how they revealed their schedule.

Cincinnati Bengals

The Bengals used bad animation and hundreds of stock photos to come up with an entertaining schedule reveal.


Dallas Cowboys

The Cowboys asked probably their biggest hater to help out with the schedule reveal.

Detroit Lions

The Lions focused on how they can increase their win-ability for the 2022 season with special training.

Houston Texans

The Texans are Disney Channel fans and got the team to practice their best Mickey Mouse ear drawing when revealing the schedule.

Green Bay Packers

The Packers showed off their putting skills while revealing the schedule.



The Chargers used anime to reveal their schedule.

Chargers will open the 2022 NFL regular season at SoFi Stadium on Sept. 11 against Las Vegas in a rematch of last season’s Week 18 thriller.

Minnesota Vikings

Hall of Famer Johnny Randle got Vikings fan excited in revealing the schedule.

New York Giants

Eli Manning revealed how the Giants got their schedule together.

New York Jets

The Jets decided to reveal their schedule “out of context.”

The Super Bowl LVI champion Rams open the 2022 season hosting the Buffalo Bills, and the rest of the schedule also is difficult for team trying to repeat.
