And the NFL has us all suitably excited now that they’ve released an epic hype video via their social media channels.
The Patriots of course go into the new season as Super Bowl champions, having completed a historic comeback seven months ago against the Atlanta Falcons – a victory which secured their 5th Lombardi trophy.
The Chiefs are no slouches either though, with Patriots quarterback Tom Brady admitting tonight’s opposition have “a lot of playmakers” on defence.
So, with kick-off less than 10 hours away, we can think of nothing better than watching some of the biggest and best plays from last season.
And thanks to the NFL’s Twitter account, that’s exactly what we have in this video featuring the game’s biggest stars, including Aaron Rodgers, JJ Watt, Rob Gronkowski and Le’Veon Bell:
Football. Is. BACK!

While only one game will take place tonight, the other 30 NFL teams will take to the field on Sunday, ahead of what could be one of the most exciting seasons in recent history.
