NFL Week 1 2020: TV Guide & Prediction as the season gets underway

The NFL season is finally upon us.

After what seems like the longest offseason in our history, the NFL season opened up Thursday night with a Kansas City Chiefs’ victory over the Houston Texans. Now, we’re ready for a full Sunday slate of games across the entire league.

As we prepare for week 1, here’s a look at the TV Guide and our predictions (the predicted winners are marked in bold) for each NFL game this weekend.

TV Guide: How we’re watching the NFL this weekend & what to expect

  • Seattle Seahawks at Atlanta Falcons, 1 p.m. (FOX)
  • New York Jets at Buffalo Bills, 1 p.m. (CBS)
  • Chicago Bears at Detroit Lions, 1 p.m. (FOX)
  • Green Bay Packers at Minnesota Vikings, 1 p.m. (FOX)
  • Miami Dolphins at New England Patriots, 1 p.m. (CBS)
  • Philadelphia Eagles at Washington Football Team, 1 p.m. (FOX)
  • Las Vegas Raiders at Carolina Panthers, 1 p.m. (CBS)
  • Indianapolis Colts at Jacksonville Jaguars, 1 p.m. (CBS)
  • Cleveland Browns at Baltimore Ravens, 1 p.m. (CBS)
  • Los Angeles Chargers at Cincinnati Bengals, 4:05 p.m. (CBS)
  • Tampa Bay Buccaneers at New Orleans Saints, 4:25 p.m. (FOX)
  • Arizona Cardinals at San Franciso 49ers, 4:25 p.m. (FOX)
  • Dallas Cowboys at Los Angeles Rams, 8:20 p.m. (NBC)
  • Monday Night Football: Pittsburgh Steelers at New York Giants, 7:15 p.m. (ESPN)
  • Monday Night Football: Tennessee Titans at Denver Broncos, 10:10 p.m. (ESPN)

Obviously the big game that Tampa Bay Buccaneers fans will be watching during the first weekend of the NFL season will be that 4:20 p.m. game against the Saints. The eyes of almost the entire nation will be on that game and it should be a fun match-up.

In addition to watching the Buccaneers this weekend, I’m excited to see a few of these other games like Seattle-Atlanta, Los Angeles-Cincinnati (with Joe Burrow at QB), and of course the Cowboys-Rams Sunday night capper.

Next. Tom Brady is already getting in Sean Payton's head. dark

It should be an absolutely fun weekend with football finally back and make sure you check back here on The Pewter Plank for complete coverage of the Tampa-New Orleans game today.
