1696 players, 32 teams and 267 games -- the 2019 NFL season kicks off Thursday night. This year's edition of the league will mark its 100th year in existence and to commemorate it, alongside a logo change and badges added to players uniforms, the centenary year will kick off with a game between two of the league's oldest sides, the Chicago Bears and the Green Bay Packers. The game is set to kick off at 6:20 p.m.
