The opponents confirmed to date for the 2023 regular season have been determined by the NFL.

Under the NFL scheduling formula, each team plays 17 games as follows:

  • Home and away against its three division opponents (six games).
  • The four teams from another division within its conference on a rotating, three-year cycle (four games).
     
  • The four teams from a division in the other conference on a rotating, four-year cycle (four games).
     
  • Two intraconference games based on the prior year’s standings (two games). These games match a first-place team against the first-place teams in the two same-conference divisions the team is not scheduled to play that season. The second-place, third-place and fourth-place teams in a conference are matched in the same way each year.
     
  • One interconference game based on the prior year’s standings on a rotating four-year cycle (one game). These games match a first-place team from one division against a first-place team in an opposite-conference division that the team is not scheduled to play that season. The second-place, third-place and fourth-place teams in each division are matched in the same way each year. The home conference for this game will rotate each season, with the AFC teams hosting the game in 2023.

    The scheduling formula implemented in 2002 with realignment guarantees that all teams play each other on a regular, rotating basis.

    The 2023 schedule, with playing dates and times, will be announced in the spring.

    Following are the 2023 scheduling rotation and team-by-team opponents.
