NFL Wild Week One Recap

Author: Skyla Burrell

The 2019 NFL season started off with a bang. Football fans watched some of the most exciting and tragic games ever played in the first week of the regular NFL season.

During the match between the Raiders and the Broncos, the crowd was heard yelling “F*** AB” after the Raiders won 24-16. It appears losing star receiver Antonio Brown proved to be a team (and crowd) motivator.

After the drowning of the Dolphins 59-10 by the Ravens on 8th September, several of the aquatic mammals asked their agents to trade them to better waters.

New Orleans beat out Houston 30-28 in the final seconds of Monday’s game thanks to Wil Lutz’s 58- yard field goal, giving the Saints their first season-opening win in 6 years.

The Patriots pretty much steamrolled right through the Steelers winning 33-3. No surprise here, as Pittsburgh does not have the best track record playing on New England’s home turf at just 1-6.

The Cowboys beat the Giants at home 35-17. The talk of the town was Dak Prescott who threw 405 yards and completed 4 TD’s for Dallas, earning himself a perfect passer rating.

The 49’ers beat the Bucs 31-17. Tampa Bay’s Jamesis Winston threw 3 interceptions, 2 of which were run back by San Francisco for touchdowns.

Detroit and Arizona ended in a 27-27 tie. This was the 1st time in over 6 decades that the Cardinals started a rookie QB and might be the last, as the Lions sacked him 5 times.

The Redskins blew a 17 point lead and lost to the Eagles 17-32. Highlights included a 48-yard touchdown by Washington’s Vernon Davis.

It was href="" target="_blank">a close one between the Cincinnati Bengals and the Seattle Seahawks, but not very exciting. The Seahawks won 21-20 at their home opener.

The Chargers took the win over the Colts in overtime 30-24. Shocker of the day was the Indianapolis star kicker, Adam Vinatieri’s, poor showing, missing two makeable field goals and an extra point.

The Kansas City Chiefs beat the Jaguars 40-26 in Jacksonville. Adding injury to insult, quarterback Nick Foles is out indefinitely with a broken collar bone.

The Rams beat Carolina by just 3 points, the final score 30-27. The Panthers might have won if Cam Newton managed to pass the ball better than he catches it.

Minnesota beat the Falcons 28-12. Dalvin Cook topped 100 yards and scored two touchdowns making him the 2nd Viking in history to accomplish that goal on opening day.

The Titans crushed the Browns by 30 points, winning 43-13. Cleveland managed 18 penalties and marks the team’s 15th straight loss in season openers.

Buffalo won by 1 point over the Jets in New Jersey, final score 17-16. The New York Jets were unable to hold on to a 16 point lead in the second half.

And last but not least, the Packers beat the Bears 10-3 in a snoozer of a game in Chicago. The jury is still out as to who has the worst offense.
