Football on Field for 2021 NFL Season

The 2022 NFL season has officially started, and things are really ramping up for pro football fans as they get ready for an exciting few months ahead. Find out everything we know about the current season, including the 2022 NFL Schedule, key dates, pro football contests taking place, and more.

2022 NFL Season Schedule


This year, the NFL season will continue to be broken out into 17 games after the switch from 16 games in previous years. Every team will play 17 games with one bye week and host 10 games – either nine regular-season games and one preseason game or eight regular-season games and two preseason games. According to the NFL, each team’s opponents are set based on this criteria for the regular season:

  • 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)
  • One interconference game based on the prior year’s standings on a rotating four-year cycle (one game)

The Big Game

At the end of the season comes the much-anticipated Big Game. Though it’s anyone’s game to play at this point, we are still looking forward to and making plans for the annual championship game of the National Football League Super Bowl LVII which is scheduled to be played on Sunday, February 12 at State Farm Stadium in Glendale, Arizona, home of the Arizona Cardinals.

If you can’t make it to the game itself, the next-best option is heading to Circa Sports for the Big Game Bash, where you can watch the game on the 78M pixel screen at the world’s largest sportsbook. Or, take advantage of the Las Vegas weather in February and lounge poolside at Stadium Swim for the Big Game Viewing Party where you can trade your living room party at home for a cabana party in Vegas.


Circa Sports Million IV & Survivor Pro Football Contests 2022


Circa | Sports Pro Football Contests


As the 2022 NFL season begins, so are the most exciting pro football contests in the game. With 17 weeks of games, Circa Sports is kicking off another year of the popular Circa Million and Circa Survivor football contests to test your sports betting skill this season – all with a combined guaranteed prize pool of $12 million. If you’ve already entered, good luck! It’s going to be an exciting season. If you’ve missed the 2022 football contest registration, you can still follow along with the weekly standings on Twitter, and be sure to prepare for next year’s contests by starting your 2023 football betting strategy early!


Circa Survivor

Can you pick a winner every week and outlast the competition? Those who have entered the exciting Circa Survivor football contest will test their luck for the chance to win big with 32 teams, 20 legs, and $6 million dollars on the line. The contest will last up to 20 weeks starting with Week 1 of the NFL season and include Thanksgiving Day and Christmas as their own contest weeks.

For each leg of the contest, entrants will select one NFL team, and each team can only be selected once per entry during the contest. If a team is selected that loses or ties its NFL game during contest weeks 1-20, the entire entry will be eliminated from the contest.

Circa Survivor continues until a single entry remains. The last remaining entry will win the entire pool with a minimum of $6 million dollars and the potential to win even more with no rake. The winning entry will have the opportunity to continue submitting a pick each week to try for a perfect 20-0 record and the additional $1 million Undefeated Bonus Prize! If more than one entry remains after all 20 legs are complete, or if all remaining entries are eliminated the same week, the pool will be split equally among all entries that submitted a pick that final week.

“I’m pleased to announce that Las Vegas will host the 2022 NFL draft, where we look forward to holding an even bigger and better event than we could have ever imagined this year,” Goodell said in a statement. “Congratulations to Las Vegas, the Las Vegas Convention and Visitors Authority, the Raiders’ organization and Raider Nation.”

“I have no doubt Las Vegas will do it bigger and better than it’s ever been done before,” said Clark County Commissioner Michael Naft to KSNV. Mark your calendars for the most epic NFL draft weekend in Las Vegas – April 28-30, Thursday through Saturday! And it doesn’t hurt to start thinking about where you’ll stay, either.
