Week 1 of the NFL season was full of excitement from the start with the Dallas Cowboys defeating the defending Super Bowl Champion New York Giants on Wednesday, September 5. The excitement continued with the Philadelphia Eagles coming from behind late in the fourth quarter to defeat the Cleveland Browns.
Robert Griffin III led his Washington Redskins to a win over the New Orleans Saints and the San Francisco 49ers knocked off the Green Bay Packers. It was an exciting week to say the least.
This week the excitement continues as the Chicago Bears take on the Green Bay Packers to start the week on Thursday September 13. Games of interest on Sunday include the Dallas Cowboys at Seattle Seahawks, New York Jets at Pittsburgh Steelers, and Detroit Lions at San Francisco 49ers.
The week will wrap up on Monday, September 17 with the Denver Broncos at Atlanta Falcons. Surely this week will provide as many surprises and excitement as last.
