Welcome to the 2014 NFL season!
In case you missed it, here's what transpired in the offseason (in 140 seconds). One week ago, we published the first edition of our weekly power rankings and listed the Seahawks as No. 1. Based on what happened Thursday night, the defending Super Bowl champions are poised to make a convincing repeat run.
As for the other serious contenders, they'll surely face big tests right away. The Saints take on the Falcons, while the Niners travel to Dallas and the Broncos square off against the Colts.
There are no predictions more difficult than Week One of the NFL season, but these videos featuring ESPN NFL Insider Mike Sando should help:
FALCONS VS. SAINTS
49ERS VS. COWBOYS
COLTS VS. BRONCOS
BENGALS VS. RAVENS
