The 2012 NFL season, the 93rd regular season of the National Football League, is set to begin Wednesday, September 5, 2012, and will end with Super Bowl XLVII on Sunday, February 3, 2013, at the Mercedes-Benz Superdome in New Orleans.

Here are some of the legitimate ways to watch NFL games beyond those available on over-the-air broadcasts and basic cable:

•With the software(the best way):
Watch online now: Satellite Direct.

•Many games are offered through the NFL Network channel. You can order this from your cable or satellite provider. This channel carries all the preseason games, weekly season games and hosts the popular show, NFL Total Access. It also includes “NFL Replay,” which offers the five best games of the week.

•For a free but legitimate viewing option, check out Hulu‘s NFL page online. You can watch past games, highlights and interviews. Just look under your favorite team’s name or in the Game of the Week section.

Ray Lewis is definitely leaner, but time will tell if his game got meaner. Entering his 17th NFL season, Lewis decided on his own that it was time to shed some weight and gain some speed at inside linebacker. He has said he's "much lighter'' than his listed 240 pounds, after playing near 260 last season, and I believe it judging from the eyeball test. Lewis looks to be in the 230 range, and at the camp practice I attended, when he and 225-pound Ravens safety Bernard Pollard were standing side by side, it was difficult to tell who weighed more.

Lewis has gotten heavily involved in biking for exercise the past couple years, and he is said to do a minimum of 20 miles a day on his offseason rides (in full Tour de France-style biking gear I'm told). He wants to make sure he can run with and cover those ultra-productive tight ends that New England sends at him in waves, but as an inside linebacker, he also still has to stand up against the run at some point during the game. Is he too light, or just right? The regular season will provide the answer.

Paul Kruger, outside linebacker. No pressure on Kruger this season. All he has to do is replace the league's reigning NFL Defensive Player of the Year in Terrell Suggs, who tore his Achilles' tendon this offseason and likely won't return to his high-impact self until 2013. Suggs, of course, has been one of the NFL's most disruptive players from his weakside rush-linebacker slot, and in reality the Ravens know that one player alone probably can't make up for his lost production.

The Ravens already knew Kruger had strong pass rush skills, but they've been encouraged this camp by his improvement in the area of pass coverage, knowing when and how to go into his drops. Staying healthy and surviving the 16-game grind is another key for Kruger, but he's off to a strong start and seems determined to seize the starting opportunity at hand and make sure the Ravens season didn't end when Suggs went down.

His biggest competition, obviously, is LeGarrette Blount who is more of a power runner.

It'll be interesting to see how Schiano and the Bucs handle the running back situation this year, but I'm leaning more toward the team starting the rookie in the backfield...just slightly.

The World Champions rounded out the first round solidifying their backfield with Virginia Tech back David Wilson.

Wilson, like Martin before him, is a multi-tool back who could bring a receiving game to the Giants backfield.

But with Ahmad Bradshaw still around in New York, it's highly unlikely Wilson cracks the starting lineup. He'll see a lot of time, as Bradshaw still probably doesn't have it in him to be a feature back, but Wilson won't be the starter this year.
