The NFL season officially got under way tonight and while all eyes were on the New England Patriots and the Pittsburgh Steelers, 30 other teams are busy preparing for their own season openers.

All the stories of the pre-season are over and it is time to get back to business and one team that many will be watching this year is the Philadelphia Eagles.

All change in Philly

The Eagles have a very different look this year with Sam Bradford and DeMarco Murray set to line up in the back field.

LeSean McCoy, Nick Foles and Jeremy Maclin will no longer be wearing the green of Philadelphia and everyone is wondering what Chip Kelly's men could do this year.

Philadelphia made headlines in the off-season when they signed quarterback Tim Tebow to their roster.

Tebow didn't make it to the regular season though as he was cut following the Eagles final pre-season game.

Fan opinions on Tebow being cut were divided as he is one of the more popular stars not playing in the league, but there's no division in the thoughts of one Philadelphia legend.

Sylvester Stallone - best known for his portrayal of underdog boxer Rocky Balboa has been sharing his thoughts on Tebow.

"He's an underdog, like Rocky ... I think he's a late bloomer. Everyone blew it." - Stallone on Tebow

Stallone may never have coached in the NFL but when he talks, it goes without saying that the people of Philadelphia listen.

What will happen in Philadelphia?

The Eagles start their season in a Monday night game against the Atlanta Falcons and will face a tough challenge against a Dan Quinn coached team.

Philadelphia will face a season long battle with the Dallas Cowboys for the rights to call themselves the top team in the NFC East.

Who knows who will come out on top after week 17 but Chip Kelly has done everything he can to elevate his team above the Cowboys.
