The day every sports fan has had circled in red on their calendar is finally upon us.

Tonight marks the debut of the 2008 NFL season with the Washington Redskins taking on the New York Giants.

This season, the NFL will provide the same drama and excitement it has continuously produced throughout the years.

Last year, the NFL was full of record-breaking performances, exciting finishes and great comeback stories.

We watched the Patriots chase perfection while quarterback Tom Brady and wide receiver Randy Moss seemingly broke every touchdown record in existence.

We saw Brett Favre reignite his career and become the all-time leader in passing yards and wins for a quarterback.

We saw the incredible recovery of Buffalo Bills tight end Kevin Everett after he was paralyzed in his team’s first game.

And who can ever forget the final drive of the Super Bowl? David Tyree and Eli Manning connected on that improbable play as the New York Giants went on to upset the then-undefeated New England Patriots.

If this season is anything like last year, it’s going to be another season to remember in the NFL.
