Believe it or not, the NFL preseason kicks off tonight in Canton, Ohio.  If you got any stories regarding the NFL, post them here.  And remember to be respectful of other people's opinions.

Last week, the 49ers made history by naming Katie Sowers as an assistant coach, making her the second full-time female assistant coach in NFL history (current Bills quality control coach Kathryn Smith was the first).  Yesterday, Sowers made history again by coming out as a lesbian in an interview with a sports site for gay people, making her first openly homosexual coach in the history of the NFL.

Before I have people rain on my parade, let me just say how I glad I am to say that Lions quarterback Matthew Stafford is becoming the highest-paid player in the NFL, receiving a five-year, $135 million extension.  Sure, he hasn't won a playoff game (he was robbed of one a few years ago), but he's the type of player you'd want on your team.  Stafford has played every game since 2011 and during that span, he's led more game-winning drives in the fourth quarter or overtime than any other quarterback.  Also, what I loved is that Stafford celebrated in the most Stafford way possible, at least according to his (smoking hot) wife's social media:  By reading "Where the Wild Things Are" as a bedtime story to his twin baby daughters.

If he gets too successful the NFL commishioner will trump up fines and suspensions as he wants nothing but 8-8 teams! It gets even worse when they have a hot wife! If you are a 3-13 QB and your wife looks like a 1970s East German woman with a bigger mustache than you have the Commish loves you. Just my opinion of course.

This may seem like a crazy question, but I wanted to ask it.  Who is going to have the best and worst uniforms this year?  Personally, I feel like the Thursday night uniforms will be the worst.

Let's see how this plays out in court.  According to Chris Mortensen, Cowboys running back Ezekiel Elliott's six-game suspension has been upheld.

Who's ready for the return of the NFL?  I am!  Opening Night is tonight and we are in for an exciting opener to kick off 2017.  Your Opening Night schedule.

Kansas City Chiefs at New England Patriots tonight at 8:30 p.m.

If we're getting 19-0 this season, it won't be from New England.  The Chiefs upset the Patriots, 42, 27, in the NFL opener.  Chiefs rookie Kareem Hunt had 246 total yards and three touchdowns.

Well, I didn't see this coming.  Cowboys running back Ezekiel Elliott was granted a temporary restraining order and is likely able to play the full season.

You'll be seeing this play on "SportsCenter" a lot.  The Falcons' Austin Hooper stiff armed a Bears defender to the ground on an 88-yard touchdown.  This comes as the Falcons beat the Bears, 23-17.

And in typical Bears fashion, they dropped 3 straight passes that could have been the winning TD.

Meanwhile, Houston, with all of America backing them and JJ Watts hailed as a hero, were crushed by the Jaguars 29-7.

Also, you know all that mocking of the Lions paying Matt Stafford a huge contract? Well, he showed he's worth it, his four TDs helping the Lions recover from a bad first half to beat Arizona 35-23.

When you've won the approval of OBJ, you know you've done good.  The Cowboys' Cole Beasley made a catch so outrageous that even the Giants' Odell Beckham Jr. was impressed.  This comes as the Cowboys beat the Giants, 19-3.

To those of you who didn't watch him at Clemson, remember his name.  The Texans' Deshaun Watson's electrifying 49-yard touchdown highlighted his first career NFL start.  This comes as the Texans beat the Bengals, 13-9.

The G.O.A.T. is regaining his form.  The Patriots' Tom Brady threw for 447 yards and three touchdowns in a 38-20 victory over the Saints.
