Professional Football Season Begins Tomorrow Night

It's finally that wonderful time of year. The summer doldrums are over. There's a crisp breeze in the air. That's right...It's football season!

Tomorrow night is the first match-up of the year and it can't start soon enough. The defending Super Bowl champion Philadelphia Eagles are taking on NFC rivals the Atlanta Falcons. These are expected to be two of the top teams in the league this year so this is a highly anticipated game. 

The Eagles start the season the same way they ended last year, with star quarterback Carson Wentz watching from the sideline. Wentz went down with a knee injury late last season and is still recovering from surgery. He is expected to be available shortly but has not been cleared yet. Luckily for the Eagles Super Bowl MVP Nick Foles is back. He filled in admirably for Wentz after a rocky start and led the team to the promised land. The Eagles also return the majority of starters from last year's defense outstanding defense and added defensive end Michael Bennett to a great line unit. 

The Falcons are just on season removed from a Super Bowl trip of their own. They lost to the New England Patriots in heart breaking fashion and would like to return to the big game to make amends for those failures. Last season was by no means a flop as they made the playoffs but they didn't quite reach the highs of the year before. Now that they have some distance from the big game let down they are trying to get back to the top of the NFC. They are led by former league MVP Matt Ryan at quarterback. He has consistently been one of the top QB's in the league for many years now and this one should be no different. He is looking to lead his team back to the promised land once again.

The journey begins for both teams tomorrow night. Then the season is off to the races. So whether you are an Eagles fan, a Falcons fan, or rooting for another pro team, TeamSportsGift.com is the place to get all your team gear and accessories. Shop online with us right now!
