Season opener: Buffalo Bills-Thursday Night Football, September 8

The Rams will be challenged right out of the gate, as they will host the Buffalo Bills in the season opener for both teams. The Bills won the AFC East last season and will be odds-on favorites to do it again in 2022. In fact, early predictions believe that this game could ultimately be a preview for the two teams who will face off in Super Bowl LVII.

Buffalo has one of the best young quarterbacks with Josh Allen directing the offense. They also weren’t shy in free agency when they went out and signed veteran and former Rams outside linebacker Von Miller to bolster an already solid defense.

Shuffling off to Buffalo

Miller isn’t the only player with ties to the Rams. Case Keenum, who was the starting QB for LA until drafting Jared Goff, is a very capable backup. As an NFL journeyman who has seen time with six teams, he is a name that fans in Southern California will easily recognize.

While the LA Rams are a team who will be a betting favorite to get back to the Super Bowl, the Bills are a team who have solid credentials to win a Lombardi Trophy of their own. Ending a drought for a charter member of the AFL who lost four opportunities in their long storied history to bring an NFL Championship to Buffalo.

As for prime-time games, this may be one of the best openers you’ll ever see. It will also set the table for two teams with big-time aspirations in 2022.
