It's no small feat to go into an opposing team's stadium in Week 1 of the NFL season and grab a win. Unfortunately, there will be some squads who come oh-so-close to accomplishing that only to come up just short.
There are three matchups on the docket this weekend that look to fit the bill.
The Green Bay Packers will visit the Bay area to take on the San Francisco 49ers in what is normally a hard-fought contest. These two squads also met in the NFC Divisional round in 2012-13.
Across the country, the Philadelphia Eagles will take part in an East Coast battle on the road with their division rival, the Washington Redskins.
