Football fans across the upper Midwest will be tuned in to a big NFC North battle today, as the Green Bay Packers and Minnesota Vikings square off in an early divisional game to see who can take an early lead. However, there’s a lot more to the schedule on this NFL Sunday than just this pair of 1-0 teams.
Leading the way in week two is a rematch of last year’s AFC Championship Game between the New England Patriots and Jacksonville Jaguars. The Pats won that game 24-20, coming back from deficits of 14-3 just before halftime and 20-10 early in the fourth quarter.
There’s another battle of AFC teams that made the 2017 playoffs as well, as the Steelers host the Chiefs in the early slate of games. Kansas City lost to the Tennessee Titans in the Wild Card round a year ago after falling at home to the Steelers in the divisional round the year before.
In the NFC, the two 2017 Wild Card teams square off in a divisional clash as the Atlanta Falcons host the Carolina Panthers. Carolina lost to the NFC South champion Saints in the Wild Card round last year, while Atlanta beat the Rams in the Wild Card round before suffering a 15-10 loss to the eventual Super Bowl champions, the Philadelphia Eagles.
