The Super Bowl champion New England Patriots help kick off the NFL season tonight.
The Patriots start the defense of their title tonight at Gillette Stadium in Foxborough against the Kansas City Chiefs.
NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell is expected to attend his first regular season Patriots home game since the Deflategate scandal broke in 2015.
He will be greeted by clown faced Goodell towels that are being handed out.
