- At Home
Whether you enjoy football season, or are forced to watch by your husband and kids, the NFL is kicking off Wednesday, and this season has a lot of things to look forward to.
We are a big football family, and love to get to get together with family and friends to watch the games. Football is not always about touchdowns, plays, and rules that some may not understand. There is always some drama off the field that makes it interesting to watch.
It's kind of like your favorite television show that you can’t stop watching! Here are some things that might make it fun for you to watch this season:
This season there are four STARTING rookie quarterbacks coming into the NFL. They are all hoping to make a big impact on their first season wearing a NFL uniform.
The more experienced quarterbacks in the NFL are also trying to prove something this season; that they've still got it!
The biggest off-season drama this year was the “Bounty Scandal” or “Bountygate." The New Orleans Saints Defensive coordinator Greg Williams was offering money to players who made tackles or big hits that took other players out of the game, and injured them. As a result of the scandal, Williams was let go, and the head coach Sean Peyton was suspended from coaching this season. We'll see what happens with Drew Brees and the New Orleans Saints this season without their head coach.
The 2012-2013 NFL Season kicks off Wednesday September 5th on NBC with last year’s Super Bowl Champions, the New York Giants vs. divisional rivals Dallas Cowboys. (Extra fun - No Doubt and Mariah Carey will help open up the season.)
