Cowboys schedule for 2022 NFL season, full list of matchups, prime time games

The NFL released the Dallas Cowboys schedule on Thursday. We break it down, including a full list of games, prime-time matchups, and strength of schedule.

NFL: NFC Wild Card Playoff-San Francisco 49ers at Dallas Cowboys Kevin Jairaj-USA TODAY Sports

The NFL announced the complete 2022 schedule on Thursday, and the Dallas Cowboys are officially set to kick off their 2022 season at home against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers at 8:20 p.m. ET for Sunday Night Football on NBC. Their first divisional game will be on the road in Week 3 against the New York Giants for Monday Night Football.

Dallas won the NFC East in 2021, going 12-5 and making the playoffs. They were shocked in the first round by the San Francisco 49ers after quarterback Dak Prescott controversially mismanaged the last 13 seconds of the game. They re-signed wide receiver Michael Gallup to a five-year, $62.5 million deal and brought in former Pittsburgh Steeler James Washington on a one-year deal. They went with an offensive tackle in the first round of the draft but South Alabama WR Jalen Tolbert in the third round was likely their biggest selection.

All times listed are Eastern.
