Play Now Live: Week 1

Posted September 7th at 1:00pm.

The 2017 NFL season is finally here. This is where Madden 18’s Play Now Live feature goes into full gear.

Play Now Live allows players to take the field as their favorite team, or play the best weekly matchup using live updates containing the latest rosters, custom commentary, and up-to-date stats from NFL.com.

Here are the games to look forward to in Week 1:

KC vs. NE: The 2017 regular season kicks off in Foxborough as Tom Brady and the New England Patriots open against Eric Berry and the Kansas City Chiefs.

BAL vs. CIN: The Baltimore Ravens will learn quickly if their plan to address the secondary was enough when they face A.J. Green and the Cincinnati Bengals.

PIT vs. CLE: Longtime Cleveland Browns cornerback Joe Haden returns after being signed to a big contract by the rival Pittsburgh Steelers.

PHI vs. WAS: NFC East play kicks off as the Washington Redskins and Philadelphia Eagles test out their new playmakers, Terrelle Pryor and Alshon Jeffery.

SEA vs. GB: Aaron Rodgers and a prolific Green Bay Packers offense defend Lambeau Field against the Seattle Seahawks’ Legion of Boom in a potential playoff preview.

NYG vs. DAL: With Texas-sized expectations, the Dallas Cowboys aim to build off last year's 13-3 season against a reloaded New York Giants’ roster.

NO vs. MIN: Adrian Peterson spent ten seasons with the Minnesota Vikings, so it’s only fitting his first game as a New Orleans Saint brings him back north.

LAC vs. DEN: Two rookie head coaches begin their careers in the AFC West with Anthony Lynn’s Los Angeles Chargers and Vance Joseph’s Denver Broncos.

Madden NFL 18 is available on the PS4 and Xbox One August 25. Stay in the conversation by liking us on Facebook and following us on Twitter. Pre-order here for early access.
