Baseball may be America’s past time, but there was a nation-wide excitement for the return of NFL Sunday’s this past week. And I know that Opening Day in baseball is huge, but there really is nothing like the first Sunday of NFL football every year.
Week 1 means so much to the psyche of every single team yet it so often means absolutely nothing for how each team’s season will work. There have been some really good teams in years past who lost their week 1 matchup; this is the same for this year as well.
Some of the top teams who were favored to contend for a Super Bowl title this year came up short in their first game this past Sunday, including the Falcons, Packers, Giants, and the defending champion Ravens (who lost the NFL opener on Thursday).
