The NFL is back. Here are all the best games to watch in Week 1

    Kansas City Chiefs quarterback Patrick Mahomes has a tough test in Week 1 against the Jacksonville Jaguars.

    (CNN)Thursday night's NFL kickoff game between the Green Bay Packers and Chicago Bears was sloppy, with the Packers eking out a 10-3 victory over their division rivals.

    Luckily for fans, the season just started and there are still 15 more games to be played in Week 1.
    Here are the matchups we're looking forward to the most to wash away the memory of that ugly Packers-Bears game.

      Kansas City Chiefs at Jacksonville Jaguars (Sunday, 1 p.m. ET)

      Fresh off his MVP campaign, Kansas City Chiefs quarterback Patrick Mahomes is back with his sights set on the Super Bowl.
      The Chiefs offense is likely to regress from its record-setting year from last season, but they will undoubtedly terrorize defenses all season long.
      The Jacksonville Jaguars and their suffocating defense will face a good test in Week 1 in what may be the top-ranked offense for a second season in a row.
      However, helping the Jaguars this time around will be a vastly improved offense. The addition of quarterback Nick Foles will instantly elevate their passing attack and running back Leonard Fournette should bounce back after a disappointing sophomore season.

      Atlanta Falcons at Minnesota Vikings (Sunday, 1 p.m. ET)

      The Vikings, who disappointed last season after missing the playoffs, are one of the most complete teams in the NFL with a strong defense and an offense with loads of talent.
      With another year under his belt in Minnesota and running back Dalvin Cook back in the fold, quarterback Kirk Cousins should have a much better season in year two.
      Atlanta has one of the most explosive offenses, with quarterback-receiver combo Matt Ryan and Julio Jones being one of the best in the NFL. Vikings cornerback Xavier Rhodes will have his hands full against Jones.
      The deciding factor in this matchup will come down to how the Vikings offense fares against the Falcons' quick defense.

      Los Angeles Rams at Carolina Panthers (Sunday, 1 p.m. ET)

      The Los Angeles Rams may have lost Super Bowl LIII, but their team is still built to win a title and they will be in the conversation as Super Bowl favorites.
      Despite concerns over his knee, running back Todd Gurley is still one of the best running backs in football. And Jared Goff, fresh off his massive contract extension, will be getting wide receiver Cooper Kupp back after he missed the end of last season and their playoff run with a torn ACL.
      The Carolina Panthers are not the same team that went to the Super Bowl in 2016, but they are still a dangerous team nonetheless. Cam Newton is one of the most dangerous quarterbacks in the NFL and running back Christian McCaffrey has proven to be one of the league's best tailbacks.

      Pittsburgh Steelers at New England Patriots (Sunday, 8:20 p.m. ET)

      The defending Super Bowl champs will host the Pittsburgh Steelers on prime time Sunday night, and this has been a rivalry that dates back 19 years.
