When Does the NFL Season Start

We are getting a lot of fans asking us a simple question these past few days, When does the NFL season start? so we figured we would answer them before throwing NFL picks and predictions at them.

NFL Week 1 kicks off with the Thursday night game on Thursday, September 7th, 2017 between the Kansas City Chiefs and defending Super Bowl Champions, the New England Patriots. Also, the first NFL Sunday of this season is Sunday, September 10th, 2017.

Now without further ado, our breakdown of the NFC West going into the NFL 2017-18 regular season.

The NFC West was a one team show last season as the Seattle Seahawks dominated the division and took back the division crown from the Arizona Cardinals, who had a disappointing season. This year, the Cardinals are expected to bounce back and try to reclaim the title from Seattle.
The San Francisco 49ers and Los Angeles Rams on the other hand aren’t expected to be any good this year, but stranger things have happened in the NFL.

Which team will win the NFC West in 2017?

2017 NFL Season Start

Arizona Cardinals
The Cardinals made the NFC Championship game in 2015, but regressed last year and won only seven games. With plenty of talent on both offense and defense, the Cardinals can make a Super Bowl run, but they have to figure out how to win the division first.
The Cardinals are projected to win eight games, but are too talented and should win at least 10 games.

Los Angeles Rams
The Rams teased their fans early in the season last year, and at one point were on top of the NFC West standings. Unfortunately, the team couldn’t maintain the level or performance for the whole season and lost their final seven games of the season.
The Rams are projected to win 5.5 games, but I think that’s too generous considering the teams they have to play. Los Angeles will probably finish with four or five wins this year.

San Francisco 49ers
The New York Jets, Cleveland Browns, and 49ers will be competing for the worst record in the NFL this season, but I think the 49ers will finish with the worst record.
The 49ers don’t have a quarterback, their running back has a history of injuries, and their defense is a shell of what it used to be. The good news for the 49ers and their fans is they will be able to find a franchise quarterback with the top pick in next year’s draft.
San Francisco is projected to win 4.5 games this season but I don’t see them winning more than three.

Seattle Seahawks
After an offseason filled with spats and rumors of infighting, the Seahawks will finally get back to doing what they do best, win football games. Seattle is projected to win 10.5 games this year and with gimmes against the 49ers and Rams, I don’t see why they can’t.
Like the Panthers, the Seahawks have a questionable offensive line. The team tried to address it during the offseason but we won’t know how much it has improved until the season starts. I expect the Seahawks to win the division again this year.
