Colts 27 at Jaguars 30 [In London]
Not any more for Dak Prescott but it was on the line tonight. He's played in two regular season game… twitter. Old friends still get to line it up! It was overshadowed some by the Broncos' two-minute drive on offense to win the game Sunday -- a victory over the Oakland Raiders -- but outside linebacker Shaquil Barrett's block of a Raiders' extra point in the second quarter turned out to be the difference.
The guys inside, Derek Wolfe, and I think Philly safety Will Parks outside, they got the eyes of the tackle, the tight end and the guard. I swam, and I was free,'' Barrett said. At the time the Raiders' touchdown, with the blocked extra point, had given Oakland a lead at halftime.
Broncos quarterback Case Keenum said: It's little plays like that. You never know in this league. The Cowboys offense tailed off after a fast start but the defense was able to limit Saquon Barkley and Odell Beckham Jr. The Cowboys avoided the dreaded start and actually find themselves atop the NFC East standings with a division win.
Again the Giants are after they lost to the Dallas Cowboys. This is the fifth time in six years they've dropped their first two games. Have to wonder where this Giants team is headed with an aging and ineffective quarterback behind a bad offensive line that allowed six sacks. It deems all their weapons mute. Dallas is going to win but this will mark the 9th time in his last 12 games that Dak Prescott hasn't thrown for yards.
I love this lol The Cowboys offense finally with a time-consuming drive that ends with an Ezekiel Elliott touchdown run. A play, yard drive that chewed up 8: Prescott with some key passes. Elliott with some tough runs. That's a winning type of drive. They're the first trio to each have a receiving touchdown in their first game with a team since three players did it with the Patriots in , according to Elias Sports Bureau research.
Chargers first-round pick Derwin James recorded a sack and pass breakup against the Chiefs in his first career game. He was one of five rookies to record at least one sack in Week 1. Los Angeles is putting trust in its new DB early: No Charger played more defensive snaps than James.
Alex Smith brushed off any concerns about the supporting cast around him after going from Kansas City to Washington. He completed 13 of 15 passes for yards and two touchdowns targeting his running backs and tight ends against the Cardinals.
The Texans signed DB Tyrann Mathieu to a one-year deal back in March, and he was a lone bright spot for the Houston defense in their loss to the Patriots. Mathieu became the first Texans player with an interception and a fumble recovery in the same game since Tim Dobbins in Case Keenum provided a mixed bag in his first game with the Broncos, throwing three touchdowns and three interceptions, but the fourth quarter showed why John Elway wanted him as Denver's QB.
In that frame, Keenum went 7-of-7, including the go-ahead touchdown pass, all while posting a better fourth-quarter QBR than Aaron Rodgers in the Packers' epic rally. Penny led the Seahawks with four receptions, but had just seven carries for eight yards. He was contacted at or behind the line of scrimmage on four of those seven rushes.
Richard Sherman played all 71 snaps in his first game back from a torn Achilles, including 64 as the CB on the left side offense's right of the 49ers' defense. Kirk Cousins didn't have much success passing to that side, going 6-of for 84 yards on throws past the line of scrimmage.
While Ryan Fitzpatrick did start three games for the Buccaneers last season, he looked like a different quarterback as he threw for a career-high yards in the win in New Orleans. Fitzpatrick also threw four touchdown passes, nearly matching Jameis Winston 's total in six career games against the Saints five.
New Cowboys pass-catchers Deonte Thompson and Allen Hurns combined for four catches and 47 yards on eight targets in their Dallas debuts, below Dez Bryant's season average for receiving yards per game in Neither made the most of their catchers either, totaling a combined four yards after the fact.
Not even two weeks removed from signing a record-breaking deal with the Bears, Khalil Mack orchestrated a debut for the ages against the Packers.
He posted a sack, forced fumble, fumble recovery, interception and defensive touchdown, becoming the first player to do all of that since he himself did it in against the Panthers. What's more remarkable, Mack reached those thresholds in the first half alone and is the only player to put together a half of that kind since sacks became official in Few expected to see Blaine Gabbert take significant snaps for the Titans this season, especially in Week 1, but that was the case after Marcus Mariota left the game with an elbow injury.
Gabbert completed just half of his passes and extended his streak to attempts without a touchdown pass, dating to Week 13 of last season. In the first two minutes of the game against the Colts, new Bengals LB Preston Brown had his first interception since in his debut with Cincinnati. It was also the first time in his career he recorded a pick in the red zone.
Frank Gore averaged 6. Gore needs 15 yards in Week 2 against the Jets to pass Curtis Martin 14, for fourth place on the all-time rushing list. Jeff Saturday breaks down how despite losing to the Jaguars, Saquon Barkley will be a difference-maker for the Giants. Saquon Barkley showed flashes of why the Giants made him the No. He could have had more if not for a Jaguars defense that hit him at or behind the line of scrimmage on seven of 18 rushes.
Sam Darnold, the No. The Lions gave up 48 points to the Jets. Matt Patricia was the Patriots defensive coordinator from Penalties were a thorn in Jon Gruden's side Monday night. The Raiders' accepted penalty yards were more than they ever had in a game under Gruden from , and they're the second-most accepted penalty yards ever in a game by a Jon Gruden team yards by Buccaneers on Sept.
There could be more to come for Ebron, as Andrew Luck targeted his tight ends 16 times on Sunday. Tyrod Taylor 's debut with the Browns was shaky at best as he completed only Fourth overall pick Denzel Ward impressed on the other side of the ball in his debut, picking off Ben Roethlisberger twice.
He became the first top pick in the common draft era with multiple interceptions in his NFL debut, according to Elias Sports Bureau research. Sam Bradford couldn't find a groove in his Cardinals debut, going 7-of passing through three quarters as the Cardinals dug themselves a hole.
