Clear your schedules now, NFL fans: The Philadelphia Eagles and Atlanta Falcons will open the 2018 NFL regular season on Sept. 6 at Lincoln Financial Field as the reigning Super Bowl champions prepare to raise their first championship banner fresh off a dramatic authentic nfl jerseys cheap Super Bowl 52 win over the New England Patriots.
And that’s just the start.
Following Thursday’s schedule release, all 256 games are now set in stone as the league’s 32 teams prepare for a fresh slate of football.
Below, you’ll find links to each club’s schedule as well as a preview of a few storylines to watch for when the 2018 campaign kicks off.
The AFC South has gained a reputation as the least compelling division in football, but the 2018 season could help reverse that narrative. nfl jerseys for cheap
For starters, the Jacksonville Jaguars are coming off a revelatory 10-6 finish in 2017 that paved the way for the franchise’s third AFC Championship Game appearance.
Needless to say, they’ll be the favorites to take home the division crown again. They wield the NFL’s nastiest defense—one that allowed a paltry 16.8 points per game last season—and the offense appears primed for a boost following the arrivals of pass-catchers Donte Moncrief and Austin Seferian-Jenkins.nfl jersey cheap
However, the Jaguars won’t be in for a cakewalk.
The Houston Texans—who were ravaged by injuries last season—have a chance to reclaim their throne atop the AFC South with quarterback Deshaun Watson and edge-rushers J.J. Watt and Whitney Mercilus all on the mend following abbreviated 2017 campaigns.
Speaking of big free-agent signings, the Tennessee Titans could make some serious noise if their flurry of offseason activity pays off. cheap nfl jersey
The 2017 AFC wild-card qualifiers started by firing Mike Mularkey and replacing him with Mike Vrabel—who figures to implement a more dynamic, less predictable offense after hiring former Los Angeles Rams offensive coordinator Matt LaFleur to oversee play-calling duties.
To help LaFleur, the Titans brought former New England Patriots running back Dion Lewis aboard to cheap nfl authentic jerseys serve in a thunder-and-lightning timeshare with bruiser Derrick Henry.
“Derrick can get it downhill, press the hole, hit the hole, and really turn it over and outrun people,” general manager Jon Robinson said, per Jim Wyatt of the team’s official website. “He can stick it up there and run over people. Dion can make people miss. He can kind of get lost in the wash up in there and squirt out, and be good out of the backfield.”
The Titans also shored up their secondary by signing Malcolm Butler to a whopping five-year, $61 million deal that includes $30 million guaranteed.
Considering last year’s Titans logged nine wins despite lacking flash, the retooled version has a real chance to propel the franchise back to double-digit wins for the first time since 2008.
