The NFL season kicks of next week with a matchup between the Super Bowl champion New England Patriots and the Pittsburgh Steelers. The Patriots will host the Steelers in this Thursday night opener. Under center for the Patriots will be Quarterback Tom Brady. Brady had received a four game suspension for the “deflategate” scandal, but a judge today nullified that suspension. Eastern Illinois University standout Jimmy Garoppolo had been set to make the start.
