Your 2022 Bucs Opponents Revealed

December 26th, 2021

Bucs coach Bucco Bruce Arians.

With the Bucs clinching first place tonight, we know who the Bucs will play next season. Now we just have to wait until April to find out when.

Scott Smith of dug up the research and he has the Bucs’ 2022 opponents. Of course, the Bucs play their subservient division foes both at home and away, as well as the NFC division winners. It is a pretty formidable schedule as the Bucs also play the NFC West and the AFC North.

Tampa Bay also gets an extra home game in the 17-game schedule after having a bonus road game this season — at Indianapolis.

2022 Bucs’ Opponents

Atlanta Falcons
Baltimore Ravens
Carolina Panthers
Cincinnati Bengals
Green Bay Packers
Kansas City Chiefs
Los Angeles Rams
New Orleans Saints
Seattle Seahawks

Arizona Cardinals
Atlanta Falcons
Carolina Panthers
Cleveland Browns
Dallas Cowboys
New Orleans Saints
Pittsburgh Steelers
San Francisco 49ers

So have fun with this while you are draining your final Bromosa before calling it a night. Or if you have this week off, keep drinking more Big Storm Brewing beer!

    We’re screwed

  3. Colonel Angus Says:

    Dizzam! Right now that’s one hell of a schedule. Hope TB stays on for one more go at it.

  4. Adrnagy Says:

    Licht start dialing up the best ever draft. Ready now players.

  5. DBS Says:

    Teams will gain and lose players. So you really can’t be sure what anyone will be like for sure. Or their injury status just like ours. Will Brady be here? To early to say if is good or bad.

  6. Carlos Alvarez Says:

    9-8 or 10-7 at best this is a murder schedule .

  7. Colonel Angus Says:

    If Brady leaves after this season, that’s a perfect schedule for an unintentional tanking.

  8. Doctor Stroud Says:

    The good news at least is that we face the Stinkin’ Panthers twice! They really stink!

    AFC Central? What year are you in Joe? Lol

    AFC Central? What year are you in Joe? Lol


  12. Buczilla Says:

    If Brady stays another year or Trask does well as a first year starter, those games are going to be fun as all hell to watch. If not, we’ll probably be picking in the top ten in 2023.

  13. NeverGIVEup Says:

    Matching up Brady with all the games top QBs. Swan Song anyone? Or motivation for Brady to destroy them all one last time?

  14. Tampabuscsbro Says:

    Good lord Joe I’m going to need to down my entire stock of big storm beer after seeing that schedule. We get an easy schedule one year and then…..

  15. Anonymous Says:

    This schedule is going to look so different come September cause I’m very sure 4-5 of the QB’s on these teams will not be on the teams anymore. So I am not concerned in the slightest. I see 12-13 wins next season as well.

  16. Anonymous Says:


    You do realize Steelers, 49ers, Seahawks, and Packers at the very least will all have different QB’s next year right?

    Mahomes, Murray, Stafford, and Burrow will probably be the best QB’s the Bucs face next season.

  17. bucschamp Says:

    Brady retires, bucs sign Rodgers?

  18. View from 132 Says:

    Great schedule for Kyle Trask to go 3-14 and land a top 5 pick.

    OR… in the spotlight with Brady almost every week for one last year en route to 11-6 or so.

  19. Anonymous Says:

    I see 12 or 13 wins. I’d love to know which games are the hard ones.

  20. Joe Says:

    Brady retires, bucs sign Rodgers?

    Hope not.

  21. Darin Says:

    Love that schedule. What a bunch of pansies half you are. Already predicting a record not even knowing who the players on the teams will be.

  22. Rod Munch Says:

    That is a tough schedule, wow.

    How do you want, Gabbert? Maybe finally we can get Bridgewater like you lobbied for in 2020….

    If Brady retired, then getting Rodgers would be insane. I don’t care how much of a dramaqueen he is.

    However it’s much more likely the team goes into the long darkness once again. That’s why everyone should hope and pray Brady plays until he’s 50, because once he’s gone, the deal with devil will come do…

  24. Joe Says:

    Joe never lobbied for Bridgewater (at least “this Joe” didn’t.)

    Go look at Aaron Rodgers’ record and stats in warm weather games and then get back to Joe.

  25. adam from ny Says:

    holy jezus…this is the illest schedule i’ve ever seen…

    if brady bolts and takes gronky with him to tulum i will understand

  26. David Says:


    A big efffff no.

    First, Brady is playing another year
    Second, No way, no how do I want Aaron Rodgers. Great athletic quarterback but he is not a leader, he throws players under the bus, nothing is ever his fault, he’s arrogant as hell… He’s basically a POS. No thank you.
    And those are things I’m making up, those are things that have been said by former teammates and coaches throughout the years.

  27. David Says:

    Hardest games on the schedule Chiefs, Rams, Bengals… Are all at home. 2-1
    The tough away games- Cleveland, Dallas, and to a lesser extent San Fran 2-1

    Packers probably will not have Rodgers. 1-0
    Seattle- 1-0
    Pitt- 1-0
    Baltimore & Arizona 1-1
    Carolina 2-0
    ATL 2-0
    NO 1-1

    That’s 13-4
    Just for good measure, throw in another loss in those top 6 games I mentioned and they are still 12-5 winning the division fighting for home-field.

    It is a tough schedule but Seattle and Pitt aren’t that good, Packers change QBs, Baltimore & SF are all about stopping the run and Arizona’s got some old people on defense.

    It’s all about the Buccaneers staying healthy

  28. CalBucsFan Says:

    Minimum 10, hopefully 12. Let’s get B2B SB’s first.

    Well, fair enough, there are two Joes.

    Rodgers record in RayJay isn’t very good, but I’d take my chances.

    But I was responding to **IF** Brady retired, obviously Brady being back is what most sane people want. But if he’s not back, Rodgers would be a great fit. Of course because he wants full market value the Bucs would have to jump through a lot of hoops to land him, but if I’m the Bucs, and if Brady leaves us, that’s your route to staying relevant.

    Of course if Brady did leave us and I’m running the team, the call is easy, I just resign Winston. That lets you keep the team mostly intact, and this time you tell Winston that it’s no longer ‘no-risk it’ time. As he showed with the Saints, if you tell Winston to just be a game manager, he can be a good one.

  30. VA Tom Says:

    Reading that I’d wager Brady retires and most dudes seeking a pay day cash in. That’s a 11-6 schedule for a really good team. Be a miracle to make a high seed in the playoffs fighting those headwinds.

  31. Sumosam Says:

    Really tough schedule. Glad it wasn’t this season. Good teams usually don’t get bad in a year so I suspect most of those teams will still be good next year.

  32. Georger Says:

    Do you all understand we play in the south. All we have to do is win our division.

    Everyone of those teams will have QB issues.

    Atlanta – Ryan gone
    Carolina – ?
    Saints – Hill / Injured Wintson

  33. allbuccedup Says:

    Looks like Lefty to the Jags, Bowles to the Raiders and BA retires with this schedule.

  34. rrsrq Says:

    If Brady retires, trade for Russell Wilson for some drama for the Seattle game.

  35. Onetrickpony Says:

    In Brady I trust

  36. Listnfrmafar Says:

    Wow, that’s as bad as it gets. You think team was beat up this season. Doubtful Brady plays out his contract, especially after he sees this schedule.

  37. Danr Says:

    I called for Rodgers the day they drafted his replacement.

    I’ll take russ instead.

  38. Listnfrmafar Says:

    Be realistic, go for Tyler Huntley, back up in Baltimore. He’s really good and won’t break the bank.

  39. Colonel Angus Says:

    I don’t worry about those AFC matchups, 7-1(8-1 counting Super Bowl) last season and this season vs AFC opponents. Brady owns the AFC. Hopefully he stays.

  40. orlbucfan Says:

    So, there are a few possible cupcakes on that schedule, but seriously, how often have the Bucs caught breaks with the schedulers? Very seldom. No Rodgers please. I’m more curious about BA retiring. Then what?

  41. RustyRhinos Says:

    To be “THE MAN” you gotta beat the MAN”
    Who cares who we go up against? Bring it. All this steel sharpens steel talk, and the first few post fans are shaking in their Bro…. IPA soaked socks and skivies….chicken shats….
