After what has seemed like an eternity, we are finally on the doorstep of the NFL regular season.
The 2013 season is set to officially kick off on Thursday night at 8:30 p.m. ET. Roughly three hours after that, the league should have its first winner and loser of the season.
Trying to determine which teams end up on the right side of victory is far from an exact science (unless you’re that one guy in the yearly office pool that no one likes). However, it just wouldn’t feel like the beginning of a new NFL season if we didn't give it a shot.
Because every franchise is currently undefeated, the following predictions are largely based on a combination of each team’s 2012 record, preseason performance, coaching tendencies, offseason roster movement, injuries and suspensions.
Since no good game preview is truly complete without a final score prediction, we’ve decided to toss those in too.
