With college football well underway and most fantasy football draft deadlines nearing, the NFL returns Thursday after a four week-long preseason that was pre-occupied with Tim Tebow’s return – and release – with the Philadelphia Eagles and Tom Brady’s involvement with a Patriots scandal concerning the practice of deflating game balls for their benefit.
All the headlines to the side, Thursday Night Football will showcase the Steelers, who will partake in an excursion to Gillette Stadium to open their season with New England, the reigning Super Bowl champions.
Both Arthur Moats (sixth-round pick in 2010) and Ohio State alum Ryan Shazier, who is no stranger to fashion trends, hopped off the team jet in exquisite attire similar to the high-end threads found in the NBA Draft.

After the nullification of Tom Brady’s suspension, Jimmy Garoppolo, the Patriots back-up plan to Tom Brady pending his trial, immerses himself yet again on the sidelines.
