Smell that? It's the smell of summer fading away into the wintry abyss. It's also the smell of football returning. Tonight marks the beginning of the 4 weeks of pre-season football before the regular season begins, and it starts with a 6 game slate which features:
- Atlanta vs Washington (Kick off 6 pm CT)
- Tampa Bay vs Philadelphia (Kick off 6 pm CT)

- New Orleans vs New England (Kick off 6:30pm CT)

Things To Watch For:
Second overall pick from the 2016 NFL Draft Carson Wentz will make his debut for the Eagles tonight.
- Denver's QB battle between their own rookie, Paxton Lynch, and Trevor Siemian and Mark Sanchez continues on from camp as they take on the Bears.
- Jimmy Garoppolo makes the start at QB for the Patriots as he begins his stretch as Patriots QB until Tom Brady returns from suspension.
So sit back, grab a beverage of your choosing, and spend your evening here in the comments with BRB.
P.S. For those of you not interested in watching pre-season football, The Perseid meteor shower is passing overhead tonight and is well worth it if you can find a piece of sky that's not covered in cloud or light polluted.
