The NFL season is underway, and many fans are excited to see one of America's favorite sports come back after a rather long offseason. Week One is home to the most exciting games of the season, as all teams are ready to show why people should see them playing for the Vince Lombardi trophy. Week one can also have the most boring games because the starters aren't used to playing a full game, and they have to shake off the rust. This year's week one matchups all look great but which ones stand out from the rest?

Seattle Seahawks vs. Green Bay Packers

The Green Bay Packers are coming into week one with all their hopes and aspirations of getting to the Super Bowl on the shoulders of QB Aaron Rodgers.

Rodgers is looking to pick up from his magical season last season where he led the Packers all the way to the NFC Championship game. The Packers gave Rodgers a new weapon in Martellus Bennett, so expect the Packers QB to rip the ball all over the field. It won't be so simple against Richard Sherman and the Legion of Boom, as they have something to prove this season after getting shredded by the Falcons last season in the Divisional round of the playoffs. The Seahawks offense looks to get back on track with Russell Wilson at the helm. Expect a lot of scoring in this shootout at 4:25 p.m. EST on FOX.

New York Giants vs. Dallas Cowboys

The New York Giants are coming back to Dallas to face the Cowboys. Both teams have big storylines surrounding their best players. The Giants are still uncertain if WR Odell Beckham Jr.

will play, as he is dealing with an ankle injury. Beckham was seen jogging throughout the week, but he isn't going to play if he's not 100%. The Cowboys are dealing with Ezekiel Elliot and his six-game suspension. He is allowed to play this week, but many are waiting to see how this is going to affect the running back and his team. Both teams are looking really strong, and an early division matchup is always great football. The Giants are looking to continue their win streak against the Giants, as they gave Dallas two of their three losses last season. Dallas is looking to build on their awesome season led by QB Dak Prescott. Catch the game at 8:30 p.m. on NBC

New Orleans Saints vs Minnesota Vikings

The Saints are one of the more interesting teams this NFL season. They are a team that needs desperate help on the defensive end, but they always have a chance when Drew Brees is taking snaps. Brees is getting up there in age so many are wondering if this will be his last season. He is always in the conversation of best QB in the league, but he needs to have a record breaking season if he wants to help The Saints reach the playoffs.

The bigger story of this game is former Viking Adrian Peterson returns to Minnesota. Peterson was let go by the Vikings this offseason in favor of Latavius Murray and rookie Dalvin Cook. Peterson's now with the Saints and preparing to get revenge on his former team. Catch the game on ESPN at 7:10 p.m.

These are the NFL games you must watch if you're not going to watch any other games. All three of these games are going to be good games and full of surprises. So enjoy football season and make sure you don't get up from your seat once the game starts. You might miss something.
