1. The NFL’s stranglehold on this country will be on full display this week as the league gets ready to release its 2022 schedule on Thursday night.

Of course, the schedule is being leaked out in dribs and drabs in the lead up to the official announcement. Last week the international games were released, and two weeks ago we found out ChargersChiefs will be the first Thursday night game on Amazon Prime.

Early on Monday, ABC/ESPN announced that it will feature a doubleheader in Week 2.

The night will kick off with Titans at Bills at 7:15 on ESPN, followed by the Vikings at the Eagles at 8:30 on ABC.
