NFL announces finalized schedule for Week 18

By Kevin Kelley -

The NFL has announced the finalized Week 18 schedule for the 2022 season, which includes two Saturday contests.

15 of the 16 games for the final week of the regular-season were previously announced by the NFL on Monday. The lone exception was the Baltimore Ravens at Cincinnati Bengals game, which was announced as either a 1:00pm ET or 4:25pm ET kickoff.

The Ravens-Bengals game is now finalized and will kickoff at 1:00pm ET with television coverage on CBS.

Week 18 will feature a Saturday Doubleheader beginning at 4:30pm ET with the Kansas City Chiefs visiting the Las Vegas Raiders. That will be followed by the Jacksonville Jaguars hosting the Tennessee Titans at 8:15pm ET.

Both Week 18 Saturday games will be broadcast nationally on ESPN with a simulcast on ABC and streaming coverage on ESPN+.

The Sunday Night Football Game in Week 18 will feature the Green Bay Packers hosting the Detroit Lions at 8:20pm ET on NBC.

The NFL has yet to announce a decision on the Week 17 Bills-Bengals contest that was postponed after Bills safety Damar Hamlin suffered a cardiac arrest following a play on Monday night. CPR was administered to Hamlin on the field before he was transported to University of Cincinnati Medical Center where he remains listed in critical condition.
