The official 2022 NFL schedule will be unveiled three weeks from tonight. Bengals wide receiver Ja'Marr Chase is already looking forward to one game in particular.

Every NFL team already knows its list of opponents for this fall, and Cincinnati is scheduled to play the New Orleans Saints on the road. There have been some rumors that the game will be earmarked for the Saints' scheduled trip to London, but Chase is hoping that's no the case.

The Louisiana native and former LSU star made it clear on Twitter tonight that he wants to face the Saints down on the bayou.

Chase might just get his wish. As of earlier today, a new report from NOLA.com's Jeff Duncan indicates the Saints will be playing the Minnesota Vikings overseas, not Cincinnati.

Wherever the game is, Chase will use it as a chance to accomplish his ultimate personal goal for this season: winning the receiving triple crown (receptions, yards, touchdowns).

“I write goals a lot, especially for football,” Chase said recently on the "I Am Athlete" podcast. “My biggest goal this year–not just this year, but going forward–will probably be the triple crown.”

Chase actually did finish third in the NFL in receiving touchdowns and fourth in receiving yards as a rookie, but only tied for 20th in receptions with 81.
