“We know the environment we’re going into. It will be the same environment, or even tougher, than the one that we faced in January. And we’re excited about that.”

The Bengals are pretty confident this year, specifically cornerback Terence Newman,

Jay Cutler says the Bears are going to throw the ball around,

“We’re going to spread it around,” Cutler said. “We can’t just throw to Brandon and give the ball to Matt. We’ve got to figure out ways to get other guys involved.”

Andrew Luck has done many good things his first year.

More importantly for the Colts, they won nine more games and reached the playoffs.

Shocked to read about the Colts, 2011-2012 winning percentage over the past 30 plus years,

That .563 single-season improvement in winning percentage is tied for third-best since 1980, and they hope the rise continues this season.

Terrell Pryor will start and,

He’s among 14 quarterbacks to start for the Raiders since the beginning of the 2004 season — tied with Cleveland and Miami for the most during that span.

Titans @ Steelers (-7.5)

Mike Tomlin has liked the approach to start the season.

“I like our preparation,” coach Mike Tomlin told the team’s official website. “We are focused on what is going to be required for us to do to win this weekend. We’re going to take a business-like approach to it like we did in the preseason.”

Why the Steelers are consistently good year in, and year out:

The Steelers led the NFL with 275.8 yards allowed per game last season but forced just 20 turnovers — the eighth fewest in the league.

Titans are hoping to get out of mediocrity:

“We want to take it to the next level,” Britt said. “We don’t want to be one of them mediocre teams out there not making the playoffs every year.”

(-3.5) Seahawks @ Panthers

Pete Carroll looks to continue another strong outing at this year and feels like,

“We’re ready to go,” said coach Pete Carroll, whose team rallied from a 20-point first-half deficit before Matt Bryant‘s field goal with eight seconds left dealt it a 30-28 divisional playoff loss at Atlanta. “It’s great that the regular season is here.

“We wanted to put together a good offseason and a solid preseason, and I thought we did.”

Greg Olsen explains why they need to start the season with early wins in the season because,

“We can’t put ourselves in that hole and think a late six-game push is going to put us over the top when you start the season 2-8,” tight end Greg Olsen said. “We need those late-season pushes, but that is to put you into the playoffs not to just salvage a season.

“We need to make those games in November and December real and the only way to do that is to put ourselves in playoff contention early.”

Aaron’s Pick: Seahawks

Demetrios’ Pick: Seahawks

(-4) Chiefs @ Jaguars

Alex Smith is excited to take on the job as the Chiefs quarterback,

“I think every team in the NFL has positive expectations right now, every single one,” Smith said. “It’s a fresh start. It’s a new beginning for everybody. It’s what team is going to put in the work and take the steps necessary to get better?”

Gabbert is named quarterback over Chad Henne and explains,

“It’s uncomfortable, but at the same time, it’s just something you can’t worry about,” Gabbert said. “You’re going to feel good some days and some days not so much, but at the same time the more I can do out there the more reps I can get, it’s going to help me mentally and physically.”

Giants @ Cowboys (-3)

Giants discuss health being the most important thing for this team.

“For us it is all about staying healthy,” said end Justin Tuck, one of numerous Giants defensive players looking to bounce back from subpar seasons. “We obviously know what it takes to get to the top of that mountain.”

“It’s something you just can’t rush into and it’s for your health,” Pierre-Paul, who managed 6 1/2 sacks last season after piling up 16 1/2 in 2011, said Monday. “Right now I’m doing the smart thing and just taking it day by day.

“When I come back, I’ll be fully ready to play. We have our rotations, but I’ll be ready to play. It’s all on the coaches, too, how they want to play me.”

Romo discusses how they are going to win.

“There’s just a way to play winning football and there’s a way not to,” Romo said. “And we’re going to make sure we play winning football, that’s everybody included. When we’re not, it needs to be extremely important and I think it is.”

Eagles @ Redskins (-3)

RGIII is ready to play and cleared as the Redskins discuss,

“You’re always trying to take a look at what’s in the best interest of your football team, obviously the health of your football team as well,” Shanahan said. “But if we didn’t feel like Robert was full-go, and he was ready to play and do all the things that you ask a guy to do, he would not be playing in this game.

“We believe he can do everything that a quarterback is asked to do.”

Vick is excited to start and sounds focused.

“I’m going to have the opportunity to do what I want to do in this offense and run the football,” the 33-year-old Vick said. “And yes, I will be a threat. I think you’ve got to take on a certain mindset that you’re going to play the game all-out.”
