The 2022 AFL season provided us with multitudinous memorable contests, throughout both the home-and-away season and the finals series.
Thrilling, edge-of-the-seat blockbusters were the norm, with one of the stories of the season being Collingwood's consistent nerves of steel in clutch time.
So, we've accepted the challenge of identifying the very best of those noteworthy games, selecting and ranking what we believe were the top 10 games of season 2022.

10. Adelaide Crows vs. Fremantle -- Adelaide Oval, Round 1
In these two teams' opening game of the 2022 season, it was Heath Chapman's game-winning spoil, dubbed "the hand of God" by some, that sealed Fremantle's maiden victory of the campaign in dramatic and heroic fashion.
Chapman, who, to that point, had played just seven league matches, prevented Crows midfielder Ben Keays' goalward strike from registering a score, with the final siren sounding just 15 seconds later to cement the Dockers' one-point triumph.

The narrow win arguably set the tone for Fremantle's season, as the purple haze would go on to stage an unexpected finals assault and progress to a semi-final berth in coach Justin Longmuir's third season at the helm.
