NFL Week 1 preview: Chiefs and Texans kick things off to start the season

A brief look at the games during Week 1 of the NFL season

Each of the NFL’s 32 teams will be in action during the first week of the season.

The first matchup features the Kansas City Chiefs and the Houston Texans in a rematch of their divisional round playoff game from last season's playoffs. The Texans blew a giant lead to the Chiefs and allowed Kansas City to win the game, 51-31.

Sunday’s marquee game is the Tampa Bay Buccaneers debut of Tom Brady who is facing Drew Brees and the New Orleans Saints. It’s a battle of two of the best quarterbacks in NFL history and will surely be one of the best matchups to watch.

Monday night features two games: the New York Giants vs. the Pittsburgh Steelers and the Denver Broncos vs. the Tennessee Titans.

The Chiefs and the Texans will square off in the first game of the 2020 season. The Chiefs are coming off of a Super Bowl victory while the Texans will look for revenge on the team that cost them a spot in the AFC title game earlier this year. Houston blew a tremendous lead against Kansas City in that game. Locking down Patrick Mahomes will obviously be a huge factor in this matchup.

The overachieving Ravens and the underachieving Browns square off in Week 1. Baltimore was the best team in the AFC last season only to lose in the AFC playoffs. Cleveland had a lot of talk coming into 2019 but didn’t live up to the hype. This matchup should be a lot closer than it has been in the past.
