The NFL Schedule gets released this Thursday, May 11th. We already know the teams that will be facing each other in 2023. The league will let all of us know the date and times for the 272 games that make up the NFL regular season. If you want to check out who your team is playin, just click here. I wanted to take a look at each NFL teams biggest opponent in 2023. Some of the intriguing divisional match-ups are the AFC East vs the AFC West. AFC East vs the NFL East, and the AFC West vs the NFL North. The AFC North looks to have one of the easier crossover opponents going up against the NFC West and AFC South. First place teams from last year play the first place teams from the other divisions in the conference.
The league announced last week that the Patriots and Chiefs will host games in Germany, although their opponents have not been announced. Expect the Chiefs to open up the season on Thursday, September 7th. Their home opponents are fantastic, and give the NFL options for their opening game. In addition to the 3 AFC West opponents, Kansas City will host Buffalo, Miami, Chicago, Detroit, Cincinnati, and Philadelphia. My thoughts are the Bengals make perfect sense for a ton of reasons. A rematch of the AFC Championship Game brings eyeballs to the screen. And Burrow vs. Mahomes is starting to feel like Brady vs Manning in the early 2000’s. Here is each NFL teams biggest opponent in 2023.
