NFL Week 1 Sunday first place open thread

Come hang out with us during the first Sunday of the 2023 NFL Season!

Syndication: PackersNews Mark Hoffman / USA TODAY NETWORK

The Detroit Lions have the first Sunday of the football season off, and it was well earned. After taking down the defending Super Bowl champions, several Lions players traveled across the country to visit their Alma Maters (sorry, Jahmyr Gibbs) to get some extra rest.

We, the fans, also get an opportunity for an early rest. After a late night on Thursday watching our fellas pick up the win—and maybe taking a Fireball shot in the process—we can sit back and just watch the first week of the NFL unfold this Sunday.

So if you’re just relaxing and watching all the football your body can physically handle this Sunday afternoon and chat with your fellow Lions fans, you’ve come to the right place. Scroll down to the comment section at the bottom of the post and share all of your thoughts from now until the end of Sunday Night Football tonight.

Happy footballin’, fellow first placers!
