Top NFL Games to Watch For:
Atlanta Falcons vs. Philadelphia Eagles: Thursday, September 6th
The opening game of the 2018-2019 NFL Season holds the Atlanta Falcons against the Super Bowl LII Champions the Philadelphia Eagles. The game will be held at the Eagles' home stadium Lincoln Financial Field. The Eagles will open the season as reigning champions, and it will be exciting to see if they can hold up their success for another season. Carson Wentz got injured last season, and backup quarterback Nick Foles performed the impossible and carried his team to a Super Bowl victory. The Super Bowl has never been won by a backup quarterback, and the Eagles made history. With Wentz back at the helm, the Eagles will face the Falcons who lost to the Patriots in another iconic Super Bowl in 2017. The matchup will kick off the entire season and feature two Super-Bowl friendly teams to demonstrate the level of talent in the game this year.
New England Patriots vs. Jacksonville Jaguars: Sunday, September 16th
The New England Patriots, run by quarterback Tom Brady, are always a dominant force in the NFL year after year. Whether it's due to their solid base, extensively talented lineup, or smart coaching, the Patriots are never to be underestimated. The Jacksonville Jaguars were a force last season; their intense, aggressive playing style landed the Jags far into the NFL Playoffs. This will be a redo of the AFC Championship last season. The Pats stole the win to head onto the Super Bowl, but the Jags didn't bow out easily. It'll be exciting for fans to see a rematch early in the new season.
Minnesota Vikings vs. Philadelphia Eagles: Sunday, October 7th
The Super Bowl Champions face a sturdy Minnesota Vikings team in early October. The Vikings are in for change this season, as Kirk Cousins will come in as the starting quarterback for his first full season on the Vikings. Cousins was the Redskins' quarterback for five years before moving to the Vikings for the 2018-2019 season. This will be a major transition for the team, as Cousins is replacing Case Keenum who moved from the Vikings to the Broncos. The new Vikings team vs. the Philadelphia Eagles will be a thrilling test partway into the season.
Kansas City Chiefs vs. New England Patriots: Sunday, October 14th
The Kansas City Chiefs took all of Pats Nation by surprise early last season when they started the Pats' season off 0-1 due to the Chiefs offensive execution and lack of intimidation. Chiefs won 42-27 during the first week of the NFL season, and the New England Patriots remembered that they are not invincible especially with Edelman on the bench with an injury. The Chiefs went on to have an extremely successful season with Alex Smith as their quarterback, though the Chiefs traded Smith to the Redskins during the off-season. The rematch of an early shocker last NFL season will make for great rivalry tides and football at its most excellent.
New England Patriots vs. Pittsburgh Steelers: Sunday, December 16th
A classic NFL matchup and rivalry: the New England Patriots vs. the Pittsburgh Steelers is always a guaranteed blood bath and fight to the finish. Around the same date last season, the Patriots won 27-24 against the Steelers in a close win that demonstrated the impressive status of both franchises. Both the Patriots and Steelers had 11-3 regular season records. The controversy during their last matchup also thjabarows fuel to the fire. Steelers tight end Jesse James seemed to have caught a game-winning touchdown that was overruled after further review, letting the Pats walk off with the win. This will only aid the Steelers who will come back with a point to prove and a chip on their shoulder.
