It's back! There were over 200 days between the Super Bowl and Thursday night's kick-off spectacular, and the Seattle Seahawks started the season as they'd finished the previous one as they took care of the Green Bay Packers. Tonight our games kick off with a pair of AFC East rivals; perennial contenders the New England Patriots travel down the coast to the Miami Dolphins (18:00 Sun - Sky Sports) - the Pats are favourites but this matchup does have a strong sense of an upset about it. Up next, the San Francisco 49ers, with their depleted defence, are hosted by the Dallas Cowboys, who may just have the worst defence in the NFL this season (21:25 Sun - Sky Sports) - this one screams shootout! The late game pitches the Denver Broncos' Peyton Manning against his former team the Indianapolis Colts (01:30 Mon - C4) which could also be a high scoring track meet!
