The NFL’s 100th season kicks off tonight with it’s oldest rivalry: the Green Bay Packers versus the Chicago Bears. In recent years, the league has used the Thursday night opener to the season to celebrate the Super Bowl champions, but this year, in celebration of 100 seasons, the league turned to the Packers and Bears, with the New England Patriots, as Super Bowl champions, hosting the Pittsburgh Steelers on Sunday night.

As we get ready for tonight’s kickoff to the season, it is time for us to give you everything you need to know for the game.
