by Angela Davis |@jerseygirlsport Who's ready for some football? WE ARE! Football fans are on standby, ready for what's sure to be another exciting NFL season. Today the NFL released the 2017-18 schedule and true to form it took over social media. Fans were highlighting their favorite matchups and we couldn't help but jump in. While the Chiefs will travel to Foxborough to face the champs to start the season on September 7th, they aren't our favorite matchup. Here are our favorite matchups for the first 8 weeks of the 2017-18 season:
  1. Week 1 Sunday, 9/10 , 8:30PM: It's the NY Giants at the Dallas Cowboys. This will be epic! The Giants have been kryptonite to the Cowboys and there's no love lost between these two teams. Even those who aren't fans of these teams will be watching this matchup. Dak Prescott will be back to claim his greatness in the NFC East and the NY Giants must start their season off right after that dismal last season. This will be the game to watch Week 1.
  2. Week 2 Sunday 9/17, 8:30pm: It's an NFC battle between the Packers and the Falcons. The Falcons have soooo much to prove after their devastating loss in the Super Bowl. The Packers still feel like they should have been in Houston. Either way, it's a game worth watching.
  3. Week 3, Sunday 9/24,  1:00PM: The Houston Texans are back to face the Patriots. This is an AFC showdown that you won't want to miss.
  4. Week 4, Sunday 10/1, 1:00PM: The bitter rival of the Pittsburgh Steelers meets up in Baltimore with the Ravens. These two rivals also have no love lost between them and with the retirement of Roethlisberger looming, every game for Steelers fans is one to watch.
  5. Week 5, Sunday 10/8, 4:25PM: Oooo-weee! The Dallas Cowboys have a score to settle with the Green Bay Packers. I cannot WAIT for this game! I think the Cowboys might take'm.
  6. Week 6, Sundays 10/15, 1:00PM: The Vikings and the Packers are a rivalry in the NFC that you must see!
  7. Week 7, Sunday 10/22, 8:30PM: It's the Super Bowl rematch we've all been waiting for. This should have been the game to kick-off the season. If the Atlanta Falcons win any games this season, it must be this one.
  8. Week 8, Sunday 10/29, 4:25PM: The Dallas Cowboys have no love the Washington Redskins. However, on week 8, they'll face'em in a game you won't want to miss.
We cannot wait for the upcoming NFL season. These matchups are sure to be exciting and fun. Who's ready for some football?!
