Ah, the NFL regular season is near, and football is finally back to us after a seven-month hiatus.
The draft has come and gone, training camp battles have been fought, and every single NFL fan's favorite team is still undefeated at this point and will undoubtedly win the Super Bowl.
It seems that there are certain franchises in the league this day and age that just produce winners. These teams have star-filled rosters and are always in the talks to win their division.
But no matter what anybody says, each team always has the chance to beat the opposition on any given Sunday. We've all been waiting for the preseason to pass so we can once again bask in the glory that is true NFL football. It gives us something to look forward to at the end of every week (now every Thursday, too).
Week 1 kicks off Wednesday, Sept. 5 followed by 15 other games just days later. No team has a bye.
These are the top three games to look forward to in Week 1 of the 2012 NFL season.
