Aaron Donald, Jalen Ramsey, and Josh Allen in a star-studded NFL season opener
Football is back this Thursday and my word has the football schedulers put together one heck-of-a first week. The Super Bowl defending Los Angeles Rams will take on one of the best in the league in the Buffalo Bills to get the season started. With both teams boasting some of the best talent in football, these are some of the key matchups the nation will be watching come tomorrow night.
Jalen Ramsey vs. Stefon Diggs
Two of the most passionate personalities will duke it out on the gridiron this Thursday in a matchup that has only ever been featured twice. Third time might be the charm for Diggs, but thus far Ramsey has had his number—allowing two receptions on four targets that has totaled 9 yards and a touchdown.
Under second year defensive coordinator Raheem Morris, Ramsey has been utilized in the star position and not draped over star wideouts as much as he has been in years passed. On Thursday night we will get a good glimpse of what his role in the system will become, but there is a good chance Ramsey will be playing everywhere on the field. His adaptive play-style under Morris last season earned him the ninth position on this years top-100 players in the NFL.
The times that he lines up in front of Diggs though, all eyes will be on two of the best in their respective positions. Will Ramsey be able to keep Diggs quiet, or will Diggs have the last laugh?
