The very first game of the season will feature the Buccaneers, who brought the entire band back together for quarterback Tom Brady in hopes of winning back-to-back Super Bowl titles. But on the other side of the field will be quarterback Dak Prescott, who is making his return following a devastating ankle injury suffered early last season.
Perhaps the most anticipated game of the week will be a rematch of the 2020 AFC Divisional Round between the Browns and the Chiefs. Cleveland gave Kansas City a fight, and had it not been for a fumble into the end zone for a touchback, the Browns could have advanced to the Conference Championship Game. You can never rule out the Chiefs and their explosive offense behind quarterback Patrick Mahomes, but Cleveland’s stacked defense could present themselves as an early challenge for the former NFL MVP.
Finally, there is the Packers against the Saints. New Orleans will enter its first season without Drew Brees at the helm, as he retired after 20 years in the league. All eyes will be on who wins the starting quarterback competition between Jameis Winston and Taysom Hill. But who will start under center for the Packers — Aaron Rodgers or Jordan Love?
