NFL Week One


Suffering as I was from a severe case of jet-lag I didn't watch/pay any kind of attention to the opening week of the NFL (all my energy was focused on the rugby world cup, and I do mean ALL my energy, time difference between Canada and Ireland first is mucho unaccommodating). Looking over the scores from the opening weekend a couple of results stand out. Home team in bold

Bengals 27-20 Ravens... boooooooo Mullane, booooooo

Chargers 14-3 Bears... so holding LT to his worst rushing total in 27 games isn't enough to beat San Diego apparently

Lions 36-21 Raiders... Oakland had one of the best defensve units last year so this is a BIG (note capitals) win for the perennially shite Detroit, flash in the pan or a sign of things to come?

Steelers 34-7 Browns... big points from Pittsburgh despite meagre passing numbers from a new and improved 'air-it-out' offence whilst another big loss for the Browns at home is another big push towards starting rookie QB Brady Quinn

Chiefs 3-20 Texans... there it is, the only game Houston will win all year

Eagles 13-16 Packers... old man Favre shuffles towards the all-time wins for a QB record, he needs a victory this week to break it.

Patriots 38-14 Jets... new offensive weapons Walker and Moss come up big for New England but the win has been somewhat tainted by this spying controversy that is now surrounding the Patriots camp
