NFL Week 1 is Here!

Posted by Ryan on September 9, 2007

Finally!  It’s been over seven months since the Colts beat the Bears in Super Bowl XLI and my pro-football withdrawal is coming to an end!  In the first game, the Colts beat up the Saints 41-10 last Thursday, though it was a good first half.  The NFL’s Week 1 Schedule has many division rivalry games worth checking out:  Patriots v. Jets, Ravens v. Bengals (Monday Night), Giants v. Cowboys, Steelers v. Browns, Titans v. Jaguars, etc.  Also, the Chicago Bears play the San Diego Chargers in what many pundits are billing as a Super Bowl preview.  I’m not ready to predict who’s going to be in the Super Bowl just yet– the AFC has many strong teams and the NFC (or the JV squad) is unpredictable, with many 8-8 teams making the playoffs more often than not.  Plus, we always get surprises; that’s why they play the games isn’t it?  I hope your home team does well (unless you’re a Jets fan this week), but if not I hope fantasy team does better.  The Fall has arrived!
