With NFL OTAs rocking across the league, people are jacked up for Week 1 of the regular season to get here. There are huge expectations for the top teams, including the NY Giants. After going 9-7-1 last season, the G-Men are hoping to reach double-digit wins in 2023.

After winning the Super Bowl in 2022, the Kansas City Chiefs are looking to repeat as the champs. Will a new team in the AFC step up to take them down, or could we see someone like the Eagles win it all next February too? We can't wait to find out, as some monster games are surely on the way this fall and winter.

Each NFL team will play 17 regular season games in 2023

Previously, teams would only suit up for 16 regular season contests, but things recently changed, with 17 now being the number. For the Giants, they will get things started in Week 1 with a Sunday Night Football showdown vs. the Dallas Cowboys.

After the regular season comes to a close, seven teams from the AFC and NFC will then make it to the playoffs. In the postseason, things will start with the Wild Card Round, followed by the Divisional Round, AFC/NFC Championship Game and then the Super Bowl.

In the Wild Card Round, there are six games, followed by four games in the Divisional Round, two for the conference championship tilts and then it's all on the line for the Super Bowl. All in all, 2023 should be a year to remember across the board in the NFL.
