The National Football League’s Kickoff Weekend marks the official start of the season. This year, Kickoff Weekend will commence on Thursday, September 7. It will feature a match between the Kansas City Chiefs and Detroit Lions.
The match is one of the most anticipated in the NFL, as it gives the defending Super Bowl champion the opportunity to get their title defense off to a good start. It also lets the league showcase its talent and give viewers a glimpse of the fun that’s to come.
