Week 1 begins with the traditional Thursday night opener on NBC and it is a blockbuster. The Kansas City Chiefs will host the Baltimore Ravens in a rematch of the 2023 AFC championship game. Last year, the Chiefs defeated the Ravens 17-10 as 4.5-point road dogs to win their second consecutive Super Bowl and their third since the 2019 season. Of course the Chiefs and Ravens boast two of the biggest quarterback brands in the NFL with Patrick Mahomes and Lamar Jackson.

Mahomes has led the Chiefs to four Super Bowls, winning three, and has redefined the position. Jackson has had phenomenal regular season success but it has not translated in the playoffs. Baltimore has not returned to the Super Bowl since coach John Harbaugh defeated his brother Jim and the San Francisco 49ers 34-31 on February 3, 2013.

Certainly, the Chiefs and Ravens will be a ratings and betting activity bonanza. And it will be a great indicator of where Baltimore and Kansas City stand in regards to the 2024 campaign.

History will be made on Friday, September 6, when the Green Bay Packers and Philadelphia Eagles open their seasons in Sau Paulo, Brazil, with a telecast on Peacock. Brazilian fans will be treated to two of the top young quarterbacks, Jordan Love of the Packers and Jalen Hurts of the Eagles.

Last year, Love led the Packers to the playoffs in his first season as the starter, replacing Aaron Rodgers. Hurts is the more established and credible QB who took the Eagles to a near-win in the 2022-23 Super Bowl. Philadelphia took a step back last year, feeling the loss of its offensive and defensive coordinators. Meanwhile, the Packers will challenge the Detroit Lions for supremacy in the NFC North.

On Sunday afternoon, the Las Vegas Raiders will visit the Los Angeles Chargers and new head coach Jim Harbaugh, who arrives as a touted franchise savior after winning the national championship last year with the Michigan Wolverines. Harbaugh is considered a QB whisperer and will be tasked with getting Justin Herbert’s career back on track.

Speaking of Detroit, the Lions will host the Los Angeles Rams in a rematch of a playoff game last year held in Detroit. The Lions prevailed as QB Jared Goff exacted revenge on his old team and the coach who discarded him, Sean McVay.  The Rams and Lions will play on NBC Sunday Night Football, guaranteeing a massive TV audience and a strong wagering handle.

On ESPN and ABC Monday Night Football, the defending NFC champion San Francisco 49ers will host the New York Jets. New York has returned to its retro look of the 1980s with new uniforms.  Still, there is nothing new about QB Aaron Rodgers, who arrived with great fanfare in 2023 only to be lost for the entire season after an injury in the first series of the opening game.

The 49ers are coming off the heartbreak of an overtime loss to the Chiefs in the Super Bowl. Brock Purdy returns for this third season as the 49ers' quarterback, but some fans and gamblers still doubt that he can finish as a champion. But with an old-school approach of a balanced offense and strong defense, the 49ers are poised to contend yet again for all the marbles.
