Steelers vs. Patriots 2015: Time, TV schedule for Thursday night football

Elite Youth Dale Murphy Jersey The 2015 NFL season is finally here and it all gets started on Thursday night with a game between the defending Super Bowl champion New England Patriots and the Pittsburgh Steelers.

The offseason headlines for the Patriots revolved around a seven-month saga between the NFL and the franchise regarding DeflateGate. After accepting a $1 million fine and the loss of two draft picks, including a first-round selection in the 2016 NFL Draft, the Patriots were still punished with a four-game suspension for Tom Brady, but the 10-time Pro Bowler is now off the hook after winning an appeal against the league in federal court.

Don Yee, who is Tom Brady’s agent, is among the founders of the league, along with former NFL wide receiver Ed McCaffrey. Bradley Edwards, Jeffrey Husvar and John Chung are also among the league’s officers.

“Pac Pro’s concept of ‘education’ is expansive. Every team will have a counselor to help players develop their interests academically and/or vocationally, and assist with coordinating meaningful internships in their fields of interest,” Yee said in a statement.

Edwards, the league’s chief operating officer, said that Pac Pro closed a round of angel investing and is looking at sponsors and facilities.

Also on the league’s advisory board are former head coach Mike Shanahan, former NFL executive Jim Steeg, current Fox NFL officiating analyst Mike Pereira, former chief strategist for the John McCain campaign Steve Schmidt and ESPN’s Adam Schefter. Schefter’s role is unpaid, and he will be available for league officials to consult as needed.
