The regular season fixtures haven;t been announced yet, but I have a feeling (due to their popularity over here) that either the Patriots or Steelers will be live every week...or close to it.

I expect we'll see plenty of Colts too - but I can't argue with that - they are the champs.

The Saints seem to be pretty box-office too.
They've been great for a while now, three Super Bowls' worth of great. But only this season have the New England Patriots become The Show, the must-see team of stars, pretty boys and reformed bad boys. Suddenly, the Patriots are not simply great; they're compelling, fascinating, appearing to be almighty and a touch lawless.
The Patriots didn't bother with swagger to start this NFL season; they went straight to defiant. Either you're one of them or you're about to get crushed.
