Finally, the long wait has come to an end: New American Football season gets underway on Thursday. The 99th NFL regular season kicks off tonight with the defending Super Bowl champion Philadelphia Eagles squaring off against the Atlanta Falcons. Kickoff Weekend signals the start of a 256-game journey, one that promises hope for each of the league’s 32 teams as they set their eyes on Super Bowl LIII, which will be played on Sunday, 3th of February 2019 at Mercedes-Benz Stadium in Atlanta.
Now the Eagles are the ones being hunted. There are new underdogs to make their way in 2018: New York Giants, New York Jets, San Francisco 49ers, Denver Broncos, Chicago Bears, Tampa Bay Buccaneers, Houston Texans and winless Cleveland Browns.
