The 2018 NFL season is set to kick off tonight with the Atlanta Falcons traveling to Philadelphia to take on the Super Bowl champion Eagles on Thursday Night Football. Both teams are expected to contend in the NFC this season, although the Eagles are widely considered to be the better football team.
First and foremost, fans will want to make sure to tune into the game at 8:20 p.m. ET. The game will be played at Lincoln Financial Field in Philadelphia.
Carson Wentz will be unable to play for the Eagles as he is still recovering from a torn ACL that ended his season last year. Nick Foles will start under center for the Eagles. He was able to go on an incredible run last year after Wentz went down with injury to lead Philadelphia to a Super Bowl win and a Super Bowl MVP Award for himself.
Atlanta is hoping to get back on track offensively after a rough first year with offensive coordinator Steve Sarkisian last season. Sarkisian has Matt Ryan on his side, which should make his job easy. The Falcons would also like to get star wide receiver Julio Jones back on track in 2018.
At this point in time, the Eagles are favored to win the game, although the Falcons are not going to go down without a fight.
