NFL Power Rankings: Who Are Favorites As Season Nears?

Without a typical offseason or any preseason games, it doesn't feel like we're closing in on the NFL season. But we are.

The defending Super Bowl Champion Kansas City Chiefs are set to welcome Deshaun Watson and the Houston Texans into Arrowhead Stadium - which will be without the usual raucous crowd - on Sept. 10 to begin the season.

Beyond being a matchup between Watson and Patrick Mahomes, two of the top five quarterbacks in the sport, the game represents a budding rivalry. Watson and company escaped Arrowhead with a 31-24 victory in Week 6 of the 2019 season, but didn't have as much luck when the two teams met in Kansas City in the Divisional Round of the AFC Playoffs. The Texans had a 24-0 lead in the game before you could blink, but the Chiefs' legendary offense stormed back to win the game 51-31, one of the signature moments in an eventual Super Bowl run.

Just thinking about an NFL game with two of the game's biggest stars, even one without fans, is enough to bring a smile to your face during what's been one of the most challenging years in modern history.
