The Stage Is Set for the NFL Season 2019: Have You Already Picked Your Favorite Contenders?

The events that unfolded during the NFL season 2018 have become a part of the sport’s diverse history. Whether disappointed or proud of the team you were rooting for, there is not a single thing that can be changed now. But since the new season is almost upon us, this opens the gates for anticipation and excitement, knowing that everything is yet to be determined!

But before we set the stage for what is about to unfold in this year’s NFL season, a few words about the previous seasons are in order…

Key highlights from the previous seasons

Do you remember how the Patriots sealed the season finale with a bombastic 16-0? Depending on who’s side you were rooting for back then, this was rather unpleasant to watch. This was the first 16-0 score in the entire NFL history. Back in 1972, the Miami Dolphins came close with a 14-0, but no one was able to surpass the record-breaking score until 2007.

Then we have the Oakland Raiders, the devastating team of gang-like masterminds that managed to take the cake in 1976. Sporting fear-invoking nicknames like The Mad Stork, Doctor Death, Butch, The Assassin, their play-style is reminiscent of what touches upon the perfect balance of discipline and carnage. They took down the Super Bowl like it’s nothing.

The stage is set for NFL season 2019. Who will take it all in the end?

Of course, this is only to get you hyped up for this year’s season. So who are the contenders?
