Welcome back, NFL! How we've missed you!

The NFL is officially back. Last night, the league kicked off the season, with the Dallas Cowboys defeating their NFC East division rivals, and Super Bowl Champion, New York Giants. With the NFL back, we officially know four things now:

1. Actual football games can be discussed on all sport highlight shows

2. ESPN will dust off Chris Berman for another season

3. Somehow, coverage of the New York Jets and Tim Tebow will increase exponentially

4. The Miami Dolphins will not be seen on ESPN, NFL Network, or any other broadcast of NFL highlights -
unless there is an accidental appearance simply because they are showing highlights of the Dolphins'
opponents.

SN Nation has put together a great video to welcome back the NFL. Well, great unless you are a Cleveland Browns fan.
