Phuket Sports NFL kicks off

PHUKET: Super Bowl Champs the NY Giants hosted the Cowboys on Wednesday night to kick off the 2012 NFL regular season. These two teams clashed last year during the final game of the 2011 regular season, which decided the winner of the NFC East.

New York went on to win that game and gain a wild card birth, which paved the way for the team’s eventual win at Super Bowl XLVI.

On Sunday, #1 overall draft pick Andrew Luck and the Indianapolis Colts visit Chicago. The new Colt’s lineup contains only 9 players from their 2009 Super Bowl appearance.

Chicago, with a healthy Jay Cutler and new addition, Brandon Marshal are expected to compete in the highly competitive NFC North.
