With the 100th NFL season set to kick off on Thursday night September 5 between the Green Bay Packers and the Chicago Bears, there will most likely be another fun season ahead of us.
The New England Patriots won Super Bowl LIII against the Los Angeles Rams 13-3. New England hopes to win its seventh Super Bowl title in franchise history this season.
