The 2023 NFL preseason kicks off with the prestigious Hall of Fame Game on Friday, August 4. The New York Jets and the Cleveland Browns will be the first teams to hit the field this year, setting the stage for a season of hard-hitting action. This opening game will be a special one as it honors Browns left tackle Joe Thomas and Jets Joe Klecko and Darrelle Revis, who are among the nine inductees headed into the Hall of Fame this year. The Hall of Fame Game is not just the start of preseason, it’s a celebration of the NFL’s rich history and its most legendary players.

The excitement continues as the regular season officially begins on Thursday, September 7. As per tradition, the reigning Super Bowl champions will host the opening game. This game is more than just a season opener – it’s a showcase of the NFL’s competitive spirit and a reminder of the high-stakes journey every team will embark upon in the quest for the Lombardi Trophy.

The 2023-2024 NFL season spans five intense months, culminating in the grandest spectacle of them all, Super Bowl 58, which will take place on February 11, 2024.

NFL Week 1 2023

The anticipation for the 2023 NFL season is palpable, with teams and fans alike eagerly waiting for the first kickoff on September 7. The opening week’s schedule is packed with exciting matchups and storylines, setting the stage for what promises to be another thrilling season of football.

Kicking off Week 1 is a clash between the Detroit Lions and the reigning Super Bowl LVII champions, the Kansas City Chiefs. The Chiefs, favorites for Super Bowl LVIII, will be looking to start their campaign with a strong performance on their home turf​.

Among the high-profile matchups in Week 1, the Cincinnati Bengals will be playing against their Ohio rivals, the Cleveland Browns, and the Dallas Cowboys will be taking on the New York Giants in a classic NFC East showdown. The week culminates with a Monday night contest between the Buffalo Bills and the New York Jets.

This year brings some fresh elements to the season. For the first time, there will be a game on Black Friday, and teams will play in London and Munich as part of the league’s annual international series​.

As for season predictions, analysts are pointing to the San Francisco 49ers and the Cincinnati Bengals as strong contenders for the Super Bowl LVIII. The Bengals, led by their franchise QB Joe Burrow, are expected to make a significant impact this season. Burrow, after leading his team to eight straight wins in the previous season, is a strong contender for the MVP title if he starts the season fully healthy​.

Another player to watch is Justin Herbert, the quarterback for the Los Angeles Chargers. Herbert had a stellar performance last season, finishing with the second most passing yards in the NFL. With a new offensive system under coordinator Kellen Moore, Herbert is expected to elevate his game even further in the 2023 season​.

Whether you’re a fan of the Chiefs, 49ers, Bengals, or any of the other teams taking the field in Week 1, it’s clear that the 2023 NFL season promises to be full of action, drama, and excitement.
