Most teams have formulated their rosters for the new NFL season, signing free agents and drafting players they hope will be mainstays in the organization.
There still are a few players looking for jobs, however, with former league MVP Cam Newton being one with plenty of appeal.
The Carolina Panthers have turned to Teddy Bridgewater as their starting quarterback and attempted to trade Newton, who ultimately was released in March after missing all but two games last season due to a foot injury. William Hill pegs the Panthers for just 5.5 victories, one of the lowest 2020 NFL win totals.
The regular season kicks off with the Houston Texans visiting the Kansas City Chiefs on Thursday, Sept. 10 (8:20 p.m. ET, NBC). The opening doubleheader for Monday Night Football will feature the Pittsburgh Steelers at the New York Giants (7:10 p.m. ET, ESPN) and the Tennessee Titans at the Denver Broncos (10:20 p.m. ET) on Monday, Sept. 14. Check out the full week-by-week schedule here.
Before the N.F.L. can begin the season as planned in September, it must first figure out how to safely open team facilities for training camps in mid-July.
Check out the latest Week 1 Betting Outlook from these NFL odds for the opening weekend, which is scheduled to take place on Thursday, Sept. 10 between the Kansas City Chiefs (-10.5) and Houston Texans.
The Chiefs are still the favorite to win.
They will face defending division champion opponents in three of their first four games. The Thursday night opener against the Texans at Arrowhead Stadium features an opponent the Chiefs split with in two home games last season.
Should be a great start to the season.
