It might seem like the confetti was just raining over Andy Reid, Patrick Mahomes and the rest of the Chiefs in commemoration of their second straight Super Bowl title, but the NFL has already started offering us a peek on how the 2024 season will begin. The traditional Thursday night kickoff game involving the defending champs will still go off as usual. It will take place at Arrowhead Stadium on September 5. 

NFL fans and bettors then won’t have to wait too long to get more pigskin action. The league will play the first-ever game in South America the next night when the Packers and Eagles face off in Brazil on Friday, September 6. Below is a first-look preview for that game and we will continue delving into the rest of the 2024 Week 1 schedule as it becomes available. The point spread for each game and betting information will be delivered below.

Baltimore Ravens (+2.5) at Kansas City Chiefs (-2.5)

A rematch of last year’s AFC title clash is a fitting way to kick off the new season, and KC is a standard three-point home favorite on the first-look line for this game. The defending champion Chiefs shored up their one weak spot on paper last season, wide receiver, through free agency and the draft. However, they could conceivably be down their star incumbent at the position, Rashee Rice, if he incurs a suspension for his offseason off-field issues. This game also marks the Ravens debut of Derrick Henry, who’ll begin his quest to replicate his Titans success in new digs. The Chiefs opened as -2.5 favorites over the Ravens for their opening night clash. BAL vs. KC had an initial 46.5 point total.

Green Bay Packers (+1.5) at Philadelphia Eagles (-1.5)

Both teams will come into this season-opening matchup with plenty of intrigue attached. Jordan Love’s performances down the stretch and in the postseason early this calendar year are already enough to elevate expectations. The addition of running back Josh Jacobs in free agency as a replacement for Aaron Jones only ups the ante. Love’s promising but still very young receiving corps also gained priceless experience last season. That is a development that is expected to pay dividends this season. 

The Eagles undoubtedly have had the memory of last season’s forgettable finish hanging over their collective heads all offseason. The sting of what once appeared to be a Super Bowl-caliber campaign ending in a 32-9 Wild Card loss to the Buccaneers lingers. That is likely to serve as major fuel for a team that may be playing for head coach Nick Sirianni’s job. The offseason saw a marquee addition at RB for Philly as well, as Saquon Barkley jumped ship from the Giants.

Each club’s defense figures to be challenged by the opposition’s ample offensive talent. Both units actually finished in the bottom 10 in total yards per game allowed in the NFL last season. But each figures to be more effective this season after some key free agent upgrades.

The Eagles, the designated home team, have initially been installed as up to 1.5-point favorites in the neutral-site game. The projected total is set at 50 points. That is unsurprising given the offensive firepower expected to be available on both sides. 

Including the postseason, Green Bay was 11-8 ATS last season, including 6-5 on the road. Philadelphia was 7-9-2 versus the number, including 4-5-2 on the road, with those lines including the aforementioned Wild Card loss to Tampa Bay.

Dallas Cowboys (-1.5) at Cleveland Browns (+1.5)

There will be plenty of attention on America’s Team as the new season dawns, even after yet another postseason failure this past January. With no upgrades to the depth behind CeeDee Lamb at receiver and a baffling reversion to Ezekiel Elliott at running back, it’s fair to wonder if Mike McCarthy isn’t set up for another stumble and a ticket out of town. For their part, the Browns, unlikely postseason qualifiers a year ago, will hope this is the season they finally start seeing a return on the massive Deshaun Watson investment/gamble.

Dak Prescott and the Cowboys opened as -1.5 road favorites over the Browns. Dallas versus Cleveland opened with a 43.5 over/under.

Houston Texans (-1.5) at Indianapolis Colts (+1.5)

The Texans will be shouldering hefty expectations after shocking the NFL world last season and getting into the second round of the postseason despite some key injuries. C.J. Stroud has set the bar high after a spectacular rookie campaign, and Houston loaded up around him this offseason with the addition of Joe Mixon and Stefon Diggs. Meanwhile, the Colts’ own dynamic young signal-caller, Anthony Richardson, will be making his long-awaited return from injury and will undoubtedly be eager to showcase his own game-breaking ability that we saw glimpses of during his brief rookie year.

The Texans have actually opened as 1.5-point road favorites, while the projected total is as high as 48.5 points.

Jacksonville Jaguars (+3.5) at Miami Dolphins (-3.5)

Two Florida squads that fell short of expectations to varying degree in 2023 face off to start a season of renewed optimism. The Jaguars missed the playoffs altogether at 9-8 and lost Calvin Ridley in free agency, but they’ve restocked with Gabe Davis and rookie first-round pick Brian Thomas Jr. On the other side, Mike McDaniel’s explosive offense made some serviceable veteran additions in Jonnu Smith and Odell Beckham, but the defense could be challenged early with both Bradley Chubb and Jalean Phillips potentially missing the start of the season.

The Dolphins have opened as -3.5 favorites and the projected total notably sits as high as 49.5 points.

Minnesota Vikings (-2.5) at New York Giants (+2.5)

The Vikings will officially be kicking off the post-Kirk Cousins era in this game, and the big question is whether it will be with rookie first-round pick J.J. McCarthy already manning the controls of the offense. If he does, he’ll be set up for early success thanks to a rich array of offensive weapons that includes offseason addition Aaron Jones and elite receiver Justin Jefferson. Meanwhile, the Giants will roll out sixth overall pick Malik Nabers for the first time in this matchup, and the game will also mark the start of a season that likely decides Daniel Jones’ future with the team.

The Giants have opened as slim 1-point home favorites, while the projected total sits a modest 41.5 points.

New England Patriots (+9) at Cincinnati Bengals (-9)

The Patriots sideline will never quite look the same without the scowl of Bill Belichick in the center of it, but this game indeed begins a new era for the fabled franchise. Jerod Mayo’s head coaching debut comes against a Bengals team that figures to have Joe Burrow back under center after a wrist injury cut short his season. Cincy’s new-look backfield will also be a point of interest, as the Zack Moss – Chase Brown tandem is set to helm the ground attack with Joe Mixon now in Houston. The Bengals have notably opened as up to -9 home favorites on NFL Week 1 odds boards while the projected total is as high as 43 points.

Pittsburgh Steelers (+3) at Atlanta Falcons (-3)

New Steelers offensive coordinator Arthur Smith will ironically work his first regular season game in his new capacity in the stadium where he earned plenty of the Falcons’ faithful’s ire as the head coach. Smith will be working with a revamped Pittsburgh QB room and will have the horses in the backfield to deploy the run-heavy scheme he’s fond of, but it may prove difficult keeping up with the new Kirk Cousins-led Atlanta attack with a ground-centric attack. NFL Week 1 odds show that the Falcons are up to -3 favorites in the initial line, while the game carries a projected total of 43 points.

Carolina Panthers (+4.5) at New Orleans Saints (-4.5)

The Panthers are starting over again in a sense for the second straight season, with one of the brightest young offensive minds in the league, Dave Canales, tasked with turning 2023 first overall pick Bryce Young around after a mostly disastrous rookie year. Veteran Diontae Johnson and rookies Xavier Legette and Jonathon Brooks constitute the most noteworthy additions on the offensive side of the ball, while the Saints curiously remained static on offense and are banking on Derek Carr having a better command of the offense in Year 2 with the team.

The Saints are up to -5.5 favorites at the open, while the projected total is just 40.5 points. 

Tennessee Titans (+4.5) at Chicago Bears (-4.5)

The Bears will be the subject of plenty of scrutiny all summer heading into the season, and this will be the game where the Caleb Williams era officially begins in the Windy City. Offseason additions D’Andre Swift (free agent), Keenan Allen (trade) and Rome Odunze (draft) will round out an incumbent offensive group that was already showing promise last season. The visiting Titans will feature a ground attack not including Derrick Henry for the first time since 2015, but the Tony Pollard-Tyjae Spears duo does have plenty of explosive potential. The Bears have opened as -4.5 favorites, according to NFL Week 1 odds, and the game has a projected total of up to 44 points at the open.

Arizona Cardinals (+7) at Buffalo Bills (-7)

Another interconference clash that will garner plenty of Week 1 attention is one featuring the debut of the Kyler Murray- Marvin Harrison Jr. duo against a revamped Bills offense that has plenty of question marks surrounding it heading into the new campaign. How Josh Allen will function without Stefon Diggs, and to a lesser extent, Gabe Davis, begins to be explored in earnest starting with this game, although much is expected from Khali Shakir and rookie Keon Coleman as far as filling the void is concerned.

The Bills have opened as a full -7 favorite despite the offseason exodus of talent, while the projected total checks in as high as 49 points.

Las Vegas Raiders (+3.5) at Los Angeles Chargers (-3.5)

Antonio Pierce accomplished the relatively rare feat of upgrading his interim head coach title this offseason after leading the Raiders to a strong second half of the 2023 campaign. However, Vegas couldn’t snag a first-round-worthy quarterback and will therefore enter the new season with either Aidan O’Connell or veteran offseason addition Gardner Minshew. In turn, the Chargers have their quarterback situation cemented with Justin Herbert, but they also have plenty of question marks after letting Keenan Allen, Mike Williams and Austin Ekeler go this offseason. NFL Week 1 odds show that the Chargers are up to 3.5-point home favorites in the opening line, while the total checks in at 43.5 points.

Denver Broncos (+4.5) at Seattle Seahawks (-4.5)

Some say the Broncos overreached by taking Bo Nix with the 12th overall pick, but it could well be the long-tenured college quarterback under center for Denver to open the season. However, if it is indeed the rookie who gets the call, he’ll be working with what appears to be a highly suspect receiving corps that has very little in terms of proven depth behind Courtland Sutton and newcomer Josh Reynolds. The Seahawks start the post-Pete Carroll era with this battle between one-time AFC West rivals, but the offensive cast is replete with familiar faces such as Geno Smith, Kenneth Walker, DK Metcalf and Tyler Lockett, among others. The Seahawks are up to -5 home favorites in the opening line and the projected total comes in at 42.5 points.

Washington Commanders (+4) at Tampa Bay Buccaneers (-4)

Two veteran defensive coaches in Dan Quinn, who’ll be starting his tenure as the head man in the nation’s capital, and Todd Bowles square off in this season-opening matchup. Both clubs are considered borderline postseason contenders in what is expected to be a very tough NFC, and the Commanders will likely be rolling with second overall pick Jayden Daniels right from the onset of his career. Austin Ekeler also heads up a new Washington backfield, while Daniels’ fellow rookies Luke McCaffrey and Ben Sinnott could also play key roles early. Then, Baker Mayfield will be gunning to prove his resurgent 2023 was no fluke while working with all of the same core pieces that facilitated that success. The Bucs are up to -5 home favorites to start, while the projected total is one of the lowest of the slate at 42.5 points.

LA Rams (+3.5) at Detroit Lions (-3.5)

This rematch of January’s NFC Divisional Round matchup should make for highly intriguing prime-time viewing, considering the sheer offensive firepower on either side. Both clubs will unsurprisingly rely once again on their excellent core pieces – the Rams’ offense should run through Kyren Williams, Cooper Kupp and Puka Nacua, while the Lions’ attack will largely center on Jahmyr Gibbs, David Montgomery and Amon-Ra St. Brown. Both teams have designs on the high-level achievement after successful 2023 seasons, and this could be another very hard-fought battle akin to last season’s playoff battle. The Lions open as up to -3.5 favorites, while the projected total is an unsurprisingly elevated 51.5. 

New York Jets (+6.5) at San Francisco 49ers (-6.5)

The second year of the Aaron Rodgers era in the Big Apple begins on the road, with New York hoping the summer helps generate the same type of momentum Gang Green went into the 2023 season with before disaster struck four offensive plays in. Rodgers is arguably outfitted with even better weapons this time around after the offseason additions of Mike Williams and Malachi Corley, not to mention a healthier Breece Hall. The defending NFC champs, meanwhile, are going to run it back with the same core group that fell just short of a Lombardi yet again in February.

Rodgers and the Jets are back in the Week 1 Monday Night Football slot. New York versus San Francisco opened with the 49ers as -6.5 favorites. The initial total for Jets vs. 49ers was 45.5.
