Week 1 Analysis

The New England Patriots should easily be able to handle the Chiefs to open the season. The energy within Gillette Stadium should be enough for them, but they’re already going to be hungry and eager to get started.

The biggest threats to take down the Patriots in the AFC, both the Steelers and Raiders open up with wins. Close games should play out between the Ravens and Bengals, and Seahawks and Packers. The Giants should also give the Cowboys a run for their money on the road in Dallas.
