Months of agony are over as we finally get to watch some NFL football. The wait was excruciating, but week one of the 2023 NFL season will kick off in a few short days. Fans across the world, yes, the world, are gearing up to watch some of the greats take the field. For the first time in forever, the NFL will not have Tom Brady as the driving force. Instead, we have Aaron Rodgers, an old face in a new place with more hype than L.A. Knight. Yeah!

Patrick Mahomes is looking to repeat, with Joe Burrow and Josh Allen trying to chase him down. Lamar Jackson has a chip on his shoulder. With his new weapons, expectations are higher than Snoop Dogg at a Wiz Khalifa concert. Deshaun Watson is looking to press the restart button and erase last season. Mac Jones and Jimmy Garoppolo are two guys with a lot to prove they aren’t the only signal-callers bearing that weight.
