2024 NFL schedule: Biggest revenge games on slate, including Russ Wilson vs. Sean Payton, Super Bowl rematch

The 2024 NFL schedule was finally released on May 15, the latest date it’s been dropped in recent memory. And just like last year, I’m here to give you the best revenge games on the upcoming regular-season slate. 

If you’re one of those clowns (like Pete Prisco) who claim revenge games aren’t real, get a clue, man. Not only will I prove it to you in the list of 10 games, but we have a current superstar wide receiver who has gone on record saying revenge games are absolutely a thing.

He quickly inked with the Vikings and should be out to crush his old team, Full Favre Style in Week 4 of the season.
