The 2018 NFL season has arrived, as Thursday Night Football will feature the reigning Super Bowl champion Philadelphia Eagles and the Atlanta Falcons in a rematch of a NFC Divisional game.
Week 1 of the regular season is finally here, and the first game of 2018 will occur this Thursday night in Philadelphia with the Atlanta Falcons facing the host Philadelphia Eagles at Lincoln Financial Field where the Eagles will raise their Super Bowl champion banner on Thursday Night Football.
The start of the defense of their championship isn’t easy with a rematch of an NFC Divisional game right out of the gate as it will be Matt Ryan, Julio Jones, Vic Beasley and the rest of the Falcons looking to avenge their playoff loss this past January.
