The new NFL season officially begins in exactly two weeks when the Los Angeles Rams host the Buffalo Bills on NBC and Peacock Premium!
The start of a new season delivers a fun mix of intrigue and optimism as every team is (theoretically) a contender. Last season, the star-studded Rams traded for Matthew Stafford and ended up defeating the Cincinnati Bengals to become Super Bowl champions. Can Los Angeles repeat, or will another squad be hoisting the Vince Lombardi Trophy? Time will tell.
