Here is why I don't think Steelers vs Patriots will be the first game. The possible looming suspension of LeVeon Bell: 2 games. You know damn well the NFL Wants both of those teams to be at their best.
That being said, that is why I think the Eagles or the Bills will get the nod.
Denver will suck, San Diego is taking over the west.
Bold prediction, LeVeon Bell will break Eric Dickerson's single season rushing record. I think NE will lose Revis to a team that offers him a boatload of money. Also because I think NE's punishment will involve a hit to the cap.
