How to watch the NFL season kick-off game on NBC

0 Comments

Tom Brady and the New England Patriots host Tyreek Hill and the Kansas City Chiefs to kick off the 2017 NFL season.

On the heels of a miraculous Super Bowl victory, the Patriots start off their championship defense with a few new weapons at their disposal. The additions of Brandin Cooks, Mike Gillislee and Rex Burkhead in the offseason, to go along with a healthy Rob Gronkowski will certainly lessen the blow of losing Julian Edelman for the season with a torn ACL.

The Chiefs will rely on their strong defense led by CB Marcus Peters and LB Justin Houston, but they will have their hands full. QB Alex Smith looks to methodically move the ball on offense by relying on TE Travis Kelce and Hill, who is one of the most electrifying players in the league and a threat to score every time he has the ball in his hands.
