Buccaneers 2022 Schedule Released: Tampa Bay’s 17 Opponents, Game Dates

Among all of the NFL teams to experience upheaval this offseason, the Buccaneers may have been sent on the wildest rollercoaster ride of them all. 

After getting bounced in the divisional round of the NFC playoffs by the eventual Super Bowl champions, legendary quarterback Tom Brady elected to retire. However, just 40 days later he announced that he was coming back, giving fans in Tampa hope that the team would be competitive once again in 2022. 

But the changes didn’t stop there. Bruce Arians opted to step down as the team’s head coach at the end of March and the Buccaneers promoted defensive coordinator Todd Bowles to take his place. 

All of the offseason changes came after Tampa rolled through the 2022 regular season, posting a 13–4 record and claiming the NFC South division crown. However, Brady and the Bucs ran out of gas in the divisional round of the playoffs, falling to the Rams 30–27. 

Despite last year’s disappointment, Tampa is just a season removed from a victory in Super Bowl LV. With Brady back in the fold alongside a plethora of talented skill players, the Bucs should be in the mix to compete in the NFC once again in 2022. Here’s who they’ll have to take on to get back into the playoffs for the third season in a row:
