NFL schedule release videos have become almost as much of a storyline as the releases themselves. Organizations' social media and creative teams now put in hours upon hours creating meticulous productions. Last year alone, we got a hilarious and incredibly well-done anime schedule reveal from the Chargers and a full-on action mini-movie from the Rams. Talk about Hollywood.
What did the teams have in store for us this year? Here's every team's video, in alphabetical order.
wait for it... pic.twitter.com/EUOQiADL3w— Arizona Cardinals (@AZCardinals) May 12, 2023
The Cardinals went simple here with Kyler Murray and Marquise Brown tossing a football back and forth and the caption "wait for it..." -- a likely nod to the fans' wait until Murray returns from a knee injury.

When you have a player as electric as Lamar Jackson -- finally signed to the biggest deal in NFL history -- as narrator, what more do you need?

As the tweet suggests, the Panthers put on a bunch of skits previewing every single opponent of their 2023 season. Even "the new guy," Bryce Young, gets in on the action.

The Bengals' video features a week-by-week reveal with a variety of cell phone apps. The highlight here is easily Cincinnati mayor Aftab Pureval being filmed by new tackle Orlando Brown Jr. and saying he has "nothing else to add" about the matchup with the Chiefs after his trash talk last year backfired.

2023 Schedule Release— Jacksonville Jaguars (@Jaguars) May 12, 2023
You can’t write this stuff... or can you?@Dream_Finders | #DUUUVAL pic.twitter.com/UKDuwtpfBB
The actor featured in the Jaguars video is none other than Asher Grodman from the CBS hit comedy ''Ghosts.'' Grodman has been a Jaguars fan since the team began play in 1995.
Grodman said via SB Nation that the Jags reached out to him once "Ghosts' really hit and later on approached him with the idea of doing the 2023 NFL schedule release video.
"I was down at the Players Championship [golf tournament in Florida] at Sawgrass and some of the people in the office started pitching me this idea of like, we want to do something with the NFL being scripted and it was this idea of rolling around like having the players audition for the new season.''

If you haven't seen this guy before, he looks at a picture and tries to find it on a map. He's incredibly successful. The Jets, though, give him one-tenth of a second to look at only half the image, and it's in black and white. And he still nails it. Now if only he can find Aaron Rodgers' darkness retreat.
