After a long wait, NFL football is back in full swing.

Week 1 of the new season was highlighted by the Miami Dolphins upsetting the New England Patriots and the Buffalo Bills doing the same to the Chicago Bears. Matt Ryan and the Atlanta Falcons bested the rival New Orleans Saints in a shootout, Cordarrelle Patterson shined in a Vikings blowout of the Rams, Peyton Manning edged out his former team and Megatron continued his domination last night. Perhaps most importantly, the Seattle Seahawks looked every bit as dominant as they did in February against the Green Bay Packers on Thursday.

On the footwear side of things, it was a strong week for Nike and Jordan Brand, with various colorways of the Zoom Vapor Carbon 2014 Elite and Air Jordan 6 spotted on the field. Both Mannings made their season debuts in Nike after spending several seasons with Reebok. Darrelle Revis played his first game for the Patriots in a pair of soccer cleats, while Calvin Johnson 'blacked out' in his new signature cleats. Under Armour also had a big presence, including new signees Brandon Marshall, Patrick Peterson and Geno Smith.

Check out the best cleats that hit the field during Week 1 in an all-new NFL Watch below.
