Finally it’s time for the full preview and predictions spot for the 2015 NFL season. Tom Brady is playing and J.J. Watt is still dominating.

It’s here. Finally. The 2015 NFL season is upon us, and when the defending Super Bowl champion New England Patriots host the Pittsburgh Steelers tonight, on Thursday night, we know it’s going down officially.

If the NHL’s offseason is virtually non-existent, the NFL’s is extreme. Extreme in the sense that it’s too long.

Once the Super Bowl ends in early February, football fans are faced with the serious realization that the next time a serious NFL game will be played is when school is back in session, seven grueling months from then.

Only OTAs, mini-camps and training camps can save them from their football-less life.

2015 brought another element to the offseason in Deflate-Gate. For basically seven months we endured both sides handling the situation of a cheating team in horrid fashions. Day after day, week after week, the slightest movement by either Tom Brady or Roger Goodell was chronicled.

Most will agree, however, that this is the beauty of the National Football League. The sport leaves us unsatisfied. They come and go within a blink of a eye and leave us sitting alone in the dark.

They only provide us with the smallest sample possible, forcing us to crave more.

While Sept. 10 represents the start of Week 1, before you know it it’ll be Thanksgiving Day with teams jockeying for playoff position. It’s just the way the football schedule operates.
