While one football season has been underway for nearly a month now, another one begins today in the United States. The kickoff of the National Football League in America means that, for some, weekends have become packed with sports action.

So, let’s try something new in the Bites today. Go ahead, read the links as normal, but stick around in the comments and let us know who you support in the NFL and how you expect them to do this season. I’ll start...

I’m a massive Baltimore Ravens fan! I was born and raised in Maryland and still live just north of the city today. I’m cautiously optimistic about this season. Sure, Joe Flacco just got back from a back injury and our offensive line is full of holes, but the defense is gonna be lights out, and we have Justin Tucker (mic drop).

(picks mic back up) I say we squeak into the playoffs with a 10-6 record as one of the wild card teams, maybe surprise a few in the postseason.

Get involved in the comments!
