TONIGHT, FOOTBALL IS OFFICIALLY BACK.
The 2017 NFL season finally begins on Thursday night with a game at Gilette Stadium between the New England Patriots and Kansas City Chiefs. It should be a good battle between two of the top teams in the AFC. Not to mention one of the teams is the best league in the league and potentially chasing 19-0 this year.
Tonight’s game holds some interest for Philadelphia Eagles fans, and no, not because you get to complain about how the Birds traded Eric Rowe. The Eagles will get a look ahead to their Week 2 opponent tonight: the Chiefs. Andy Reid’s side will be looking to upset Tom Brady and Bill Belichick on the road.
It’s great to know football is back. It’s also great to know we’re only a few days away from the Eagles’ first game of the 2017 season on Sunday against Washington.
