The NFL Schedule is built around excitement, matchups, and eye-popping headlines. Week one of the schedule features some incredible games that you won’t want to miss. Here are the best three games we’ll see to start the NFL REGULAR season.
3. Cleveland Browns at Pittsburgh Steelers (Sunday, Sept. 7, 1 p.m., CBS)
This game might not have looked like a must-watch a few months ago, but who wouldn’t want to be glued to be TV for this one?
You’ll want to see how Brian Hoyer does. There’s controversy, there’s intrigue, and there are consequences. You likely won’t see Johnny Manziel, but why not watch just in case.
There are other storylines here. Dri Archer makes his NFL debut, Mike Pettine makes his first appearance as the coach of the Browns, and Ben Roethlisberger is looking to rebound from a brutal game three (preseason).
2. Indianapolis Colts vs. Denver Broncos (Sunday, Sept. 7th, 8:30 p.m., ESPN)
What’s not to love about this one?
Peyton gets his chance to begin his quest for a Super Bowl ring with a brutal home matchup against Andrew Luck and the Colts.
Indianapolis looks to have a very strong 2014 campaign with several new faces on offense and defense. Chuck Pagano has his team right where he wants them, and with the ability to score 30+ points, they could start the Broncos’ season with a big “L” in week one.
1. Green Bay Packers vs. Seattle Seahawks (Thursday, Sept. 4th, 8:30 p.m., NBC)
The defending champs are back and ready to battle against the NFC team that might have the best chance to knock them out of the playoffs this season.
We all know what the Seahawks are all about - it’s guys like Eddie Lacy that have the NFC North abuzz. The offense in Green Bay is healthy and looks more prepared than ever. The ability to score 40 points? Easy. Against the Seahawks defense? Yeah…think again.
