With the regular season around the corner, are there any NFL games today? The first full weekend of the preseason has wrapped up. But is there a Monday Night Football game tonight?
NFL games today: Is there Monday Night Football?
The first full week of the 2022 NFL preseason was split up between four days. The final game of the week took place yesterday. There is no Monday Night Football this week. However, there will be a Monday Night Football game in Week 2 of the preseason next week, as the New York Jets will host the Atlanta Falcons on Aug. 22.
Full NFL preseason Week 1 results
Atlanta Falcons at Detroit Lions
Falcons rookie QB Desmond Ridder made his NFL (preseason) debut, passing for 103 yards and two touchdowns. He also ran six times for 59 yards and led a late fourth-quarter touchdown drive for the win.
Result: Falcons 27, Lions 23
Cleveland Browns at Jacksonville Jaguars
Deshaun Watson played in an NFL game for the first time since 2020, completing just one of his five pass attempts. Trevor Lawrence, meanwhile, passed for 95 yards and a touchdown.
Result: Browns 24, Jaguars 13
Arizona Cardinals at Cincinnati Bengals
Arizona posted the highest point total of the entire week, led by quarterbacks Trace McSorley and Jarrett Guarantano. The two Cardinals QBs tallied 217 yards passing and two touchdowns.
Result: Cardinals 36, Bengals 23
New York Jets at Philadelphia Eagles
Result: Jets 24, Eagles 21
Green Bay Packers at San Francisco 49ers
Packers QB Jordan Love had a rough start to his 2022 preseason, throwing three interceptions on 24 pass attempts. Trey Lance, on the other hand, had a terrific start to his preseason. Lance completed 4 of 5 passes for 92 yards and a touchdown on the evening.
Result: 49ers 28, Packers 21
New York Giants at New England Patriots
While most eyes were on Giants QB Daniel Jones in his first game with new head coach Brian Daboll, it was backup RB Antonio Williams who shined. He rushed for 61 yards on nine carries, including a 2-yard touchdown run.
Result: Giants 22, Patriots 21
Tennessee Titans at Baltimore Ravens
Titans rookie QB Malik Willis made his preseason debut, passing for 107 yards while rushing for 38 yards and a touchdown. He made a few electric throws along the way. But he was outdone by his counterpart in Baltimore. QB Tyler Huntley looked terrific, completing 16 of 18 passes for 109 yards and a touchdown, ensuring that the Ravens kept their impressive preseason win streak intact.
Result: Ravens 23, Titans 10
Kansas City Chiefs at Chicago Bears
Patrick Mahomes looked to be in regular season form, leading the Chiefs on an 11-play, 72-yard touchdown drive on their first possession. Mahomes finished 6 of 7 for 60 yards and a touchdown. Justin Fields, on the other hand, was not as sharp. Fields ended his day 4 of 7 for 48 yards.
Result: Bears 19, Chiefs 14
Carolina Panthers at Washington Commanders
A couple of veteran quarterbacks made their debuts with new teams in this game. Baker Mayfield made his first appearance as a Panther, completing four of his seven pass attempts for 45 yards. On the other sideline, Carso Wentz debuted as a member of the Commanders. Wentz was an efficient 10 of 13 for 74 yards.
Result: Panthers 23, Commanders 21
Indianapolis Colts at Buffalo Bills
Matt Ryan got his first action as the quarterback of the Colts, completing 6 of 10 passes for 58 yards. Buffalo did not play their starting QB, Josh Allen, and the result was a combined 60.6 passer rating from Matt Barkley and Case Keenum.
Result: Bills 27, Colts 24
Seattle Seahawks at Pittsburgh Steelers
Rookie Kenny Pickett debuted for the Steelers and had the hometown fans in a frenzy by the time it was over. Pickett completed 13 of 15 passes for 95 yards and two touchdowns in a highly efficient performance. For Seattle, the QB competition appears to be in a dead heat. Drew Lock was 11 of 15 for 102 yards and two touchdowns. Meanwhile, Geno Smith was 10 of 15 for 101 yards and one touchdown.
Result: Steelers 32, Seahawks 25
Miami Dolphins at Tampa Bay Buccaneers
Dolphins rookie QB Skyler Thompson started the game and went the distance, impressing in the process. The Kansas State product completed 20 of 28 attempts for 218 yards and a touchdown. For Tampa, with Tom Brady missing the game — and some practice time both last week and this upcoming week — Kyle Trask had an opportunity to shine. He didn’t waste it, passing for 258 yards and compiling a 95.3 passer rating.
Result: Dolphins 26, Buccaneers 24
New Orleans Saints at Houston Texans
With Jameis Winston nursing a foot injury, Andy Dalton got the start for New Orleans. He looked like his usual, efficient, if unspectacular self. Dalton finished with 51 yards passing and a touchdown while completing all five of his pass attempts. On the other sideline, the story of the night was rookie RB Dameon Pierce. The fourth-round pick out of Florida ran for 49 yards on just five carries.
Result: Texans 17, Saints 13
Dallas Cowboys at Denver Broncos
With Denver sitting Russell Wilson, Josh Johnson got the start at QB. And he took advantage of the opportunity, completing 16 of 23 attempts for 172 yards and two touchdowns. For Dallas, the story of the night was penalties. The Cowboys were penalized 17 times, which is obviously a concern considering Dallas was the most penalized team in the NFL in 2021.
Result: Broncos 17, Cowboys 7
Los Angeles Rams at Los Angeles Chargers
In the battle of LA, it was Rams QB Bryce Perkins who was the story of the night. The second-year QB from Virginia played the entire game, throwing for 133 yards and two touchdowns while also rushing for 39 yards and a score. For the Chargers, the storyline of the evening was the battle to be the RB2 behind Austin Ekeler. Rookie Isaiah Spiller rushed for 34 yards on 10 carries, while veteran Joshua Kelley tallied 16 yards on just three carries.
Result: Rams 29, Chargers 22
Minnesota Vikings at Las Vegas Raiders
Week 1 of the preseason concluded on Sunday in Las Vegas. With Kirk Cousins out with COVID, the battle to be the QB2 in Minnesota took center stage. Kellen Mond had the more impressive outing, passing for 119 yards and two touchdowns. Sean Mannion wasn’t bad, either, completing 8 of 12 passes for 79 yards.
Result: Raiders 26, Vikings 20
