Kicking off season 100
Chiefs 40- Jaguars 28
Nick Foles proved that he’s exactly what the Jaguars needed to boost a lethal defence. But a broken left clavicle quickly snapped the spirits of the Florida faithful as they watched Mahomes pick up where he left off to hand the Jags an L.
Vikings 28- Falcons 12
Minnesota went old school Skol by suffocating the Falcons by running the ball down their throat and grounding any hopes Matty Ice had for takeoff with a stifling defense.
Titans 43-Browns 13
Maybe Mayfield is just letting the hype around the Browns simmer just a little longer…or maybe the Browns are just bad…
Bills 17- Jets 16
The script was picture perfect for the Jets to fly into a new era: up big going into the fourth under a new coach. But the Bills had other plans and charged back to prove that there’s nothing new in New York.
Ravens 59- Dolphins 10
The only scientific explanation for the stench emanating off of the Dolphins’ week 1 performance is that they dressed real live dolphins in those jerseys and let their thumbless flippers attempt to catch the ball.
Eagles 32- Redskins 27
Nothing screams “The NFL is back” like a good old division rivalry, and from lead changes to fireworks (hello vintage Jackson?) the NFC East didn’t disappoint.
Rams 30- Panthers 27
McCaffery may have had another monster game, but it wasn’t enough to make up for his rusty quarterback as the Panthers fell to a Rams team that seems to still be stumbling after that Super Bowl loss.
Chargers 30- Colts 24
The new era in Indy started strong, pushing the Chargers all the way to OT, but ultimately it was their lack of Luck on the coin toss that lead to their first loss.
Seahawks 21- Bengals 20
A new look Legion of Boom, lead by Jadeveon Clowney, locked down a win despite a late roar by the Bengals.
Cowboys 35- Giants 17
If Giants fans were hoping that the rebuild wasn’t going to hurt, the Cowboys were quick to stamp it out of them, and stamp through the G-Men on the field.
