With the regular season around the corner, are there any NFL games today? The first full weekend of the pre-season is over. But is there a Monday Night Football game tonight?
The first full week of the 2022 NFL preseason was split between four days. Yesterday was the last match of the week. 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 host the Atlanta Falcons on August 22nd.
Complete results from Week 1 of the NFL preseason
Atlanta Falcons at Detroit Lions
Falcons rookie QB Desmond Reeder made his NFL debut (preseason) passing for 103 yards and two touchdowns. He also ran six times for 59 yards and a touchdown late in the fourth quarter for the win.
Score: 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.
Score: Browns 24, Jaguars 13
Arizona Cardinals at Cincinnati Bengals
Arizona recorded the highest scoring total of the week, led by quarterbacks Trace McSorley and Jarrett Guarantano. The two Cardinals QBs accounted for 217 yards passing and two touchdowns.
Score: Cardinals 36, Bengals 23
New York Jets at Philadelphia Eagles
Eagles QB Jalen Hurts was perfect on the night, completing all six of his passes for 80 yards and a touchdown. The story of the night, however, was the injury to Jets QB Zach Wilson.
Score: Jets 24, Eagles 21
Green Bay Packers at San Francisco 49ers
Packers QB Jordan Love has had a rough start to his 2022 preseason, throwing three interceptions on 24 pass attempts. Trey Lance, on the other hand, has had a great start to his preseason. Lance completed 4 of 5 passes for 92 yards and a touchdown on the night.
Score: 49ers 28, Packers 21
New York Giants at New England Patriots
While most eyes were on Giants QB Daniel Jones in his first game under new head coach Brian Daboll, backup RB Antonio Williams shined. He rushed for 61 yards on nine carries, including a 2-yard touchdown.
Score: 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 several 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 the Ravens kept their impressive preseason winning streak intact.
Score: Ravens 23, Titans 10
Kansas City Chiefs at Chicago Bears
Patrick Mahomes looked 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, wasn’t quite as sharp. Fields finished the day 4 of 7 for 48 yards.
Score: Bears 19, Chiefs 14
Carolina Panthers at Washington Commanders
Several 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 side, Carso Wentz made his debut as a member of the Commanders. Wentz was an efficient 10 of 13 for 74 yards.
Score: Panthers 23, Commanders 21
Indianapolis Colts at Buffalo Bills
Matt Ryan got his first action as the Colts’ quarterback, completing 6 of 10 passes for 58 yards. Buffalo did not play its starting QB, Josh Allen, and the result was a combined 60.6 passer rating from Matt Barkley and Case Keenum.
Score: Bills 27, Colts 24
Seattle Seahawks at Pittsburgh Steelers
Rookie Kenny Pickett made his debut for the Steelers and had the hometown fans going wild until 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 deadlocked. Drew Lock was 11 of 15 for 102 yards and two touchdowns. Geno Smith, meanwhile, was 10 of 15 for 101 yards and one touchdown.
Score: 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 last week and this coming week — Kyle Trask had an opportunity to shine. He didn’t waste it, passing for 258 yards and compiling a 95.3 passer rating.
Score: Dolphins 26, Pirates 24
New Orleans Saints at Houston Texas
With Jameis Winston nursing a foot injury, Andy Dalton got the starting job for New Orleans. He looked his usual self, efficient if nondescript. Dalton finished with 51 yards passing and a touchdown while completing all five of his pass attempts. On the other side, the story of the night was rookie RB Dameon Pierce. Florida’s fourth-round pick rushed for 49 yards on just five carries.
Score: Texans 17, Saints 13
Dallas Cowboys at Denver Broncos
With Russell Wilson in Denver, Josh Johnson started 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 the penalties. The Cowboys were penalized 17 times, which is obviously a cause for concern considering Dallas was the most penalized team in the NFL in 2021.
Score: Broncos 17, Cowboys 7
Los Angeles Rams at Los Angeles Chargers
At tackle for the LA Rams, QB Bryce Perkins 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 story line of the night was the battle to be the RB2 behind Austin Ekeler. Rookie Isaiah Spiller rushed for 34 yards on 10 carries, while veteran Joshua Kelly accounted for 16 yards on just three carries.
Score: Rams 29, Chargers 22
Minnesota Vikings at Las Vegas Raiders
Week 1 of the preseason wrapped up Sunday in Las Vegas. With Kirk Cousins out of COVID, the battle to be Minnesota’s QB2 takes 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.
Score: Raiders 26, Vikings 20
