NFL 2022 International Games: Five Games in London, Munich, and Mexico City on Tap

Every year, the NFL seems to expand its international offering of games as it hopes to grow the game’s global reach. This year, there are three games in London, UK, one game in Munich, Germany, and one game in Mexico City, Mexico. Five games are the most the NFL International Series has had in one season, and this is also the first time we have a game in Germany. This article breaks down the international NFL games in the 2022 season.

Week 4: Minnesota Vikings at New Orleans Saints

Where: Tottenham Hotspur Stadium – London, UK

When: 9:30 AM EST on October 2, 2022

The first game in the international series could end up being the best between these two potential playoff teams. Neither the Vikings nor Saints are favored to win their respective divisions, but they are both expected to be in the Wild Card hunt this year. New Orleans will have Jameis Winston back healthy after leading the team to a 5-2 record in his seven starts last year. The Vikings will be hoping new head coach Kevin O’Connel can continue to unlock the offense featured by Kirk Cousins, Justin Jefferson, Adam Thielen, and Dalvin Cook. Both the Saints and Vikings have a 2-0 record in international games.

Week 5: New York Giants at Green Bay Packers

Where: Tottenham Hotspur Stadium – London, UK

When: 9:30 AM EST on October 9, 2022

The Packers lead their all-time series against the Giants 34-26-2 including three straight wins. That series has never taken place overseas, however. Green Bay is the only team to never appear in an international game, and fans in the United Kingdom will be excited to watch two-time reigning MVP Aaron Rodgers play. Meanwhile, the Giants have a 2-0 record in their two international games, most recently beating the Rams in London in 2016. Daniel Jones is entering a make-or-break year with new head coach Brian Daboll, and the much-improved Packers defense could present a serious challenge.

Week 8: Denver Broncos at Jacksonville Jaguars

Where: Wembley Stadium – London, UK

When: 9:30 AM EST on October 30, 2022

The Broncos have appeared in an international game once before in 2010 when they lost to the 49ers. The Jaguars, meanwhile, have become a staple of the London Games with eight total games in the United Kingdom. They have a 4-4 record in those games, most recently beating the Dolphins last season. Russell Wilson’s trade to the Broncos was one of the headline moves of the offseason while Trevor Lawrence will be hoping for much more success in the second season of his career. The Broncos have won three of their last four games against the Jaguars.

Week 10: Seattle Seahawks at Tampa Bay Buccaneers

Where: Allianz Arena – Munich, Germany

When: 9:30 AM EST on November 13, 2022

What better way to kick off the Germany Games for the NFL than with the best player in league history Tom Brady? Somewhat ironically, Brady and his Patriots faced the Buccaneers in his first international appearance. The Patriots won 35-7 that day in London as Brady threw three touchdowns. The Buccaneers have an 0-3 international record while the Seahawks won their first and only international game. Those records will be expected to reverse as the Bucs will likely be heavily favored in this game whether it’s Drew Lock or Geno Smith under center for Seattle.

Week 11: San Francisco 49ers at Arizona Cardinals

Where: Estadio Azteca – Mexico City, Mexico

When: 8:15 PM EST on November 21, 2022

The Mexico Games have produced some very memorable contests in recent years. The Rams defeated the Chiefs 54-51 in 2018 in the third-highest-scoring game of all time. Three of the four games in Mexico have been decided by one score. This game figures to be close as well between two heated divisional rivals who will be fighting for playoff positioning late in the season. The 49ers are expected to start second-year quarterback Trey Lance this year while Kyler Murray will hope to replicate his performance from last year as one of the best quarterbacks in the NFL.
