The NFL is back! The kickoff officially came Thursday night, when the Kansas City Chiefs surprisingly embarrassed the New England Patriots in Foxboro, but this is the first real NFL Sunday of the year: actual, honest-to-goodness, day-long, professional, competitive football. Nice!
For Tampa Bay Buccaneers and Miami Dolphins fans (and everyone involved with those teams) it’s a little less nice: there’s no game today or at all this week, because of Hurricane Irma. Obviously, the hurricane’s effects are a lot more important than the loss of an NFL game. Hopefully everyone manages to stay safe.
Meanwhile, though, the rest of the NFL will continue with a full slate of games. Twelve to be precise, ending with the New York Giants and Dallas Cowboys facing off on the first Sunday night of football of the regular season. The action continues on Monday, of course, with one of those rare, late-night double-headers that finish up well after midnight ET.
