Giants bounce back against familiar foe
After a humiliating loss to the most over rated madden squad ever, Dallas Cowboys , the Giants got back to basics this week. Eli Manning finally looked comfortable as an 6'5" Big headed bastard can in the new ownerships offense and the defense was making better reads in the passing game and not being as content.
The Saints would open with the ball but Drew Brees would find DRC for his first interception of the day on the games third play. The Saints defense was strong though holding the Giants to a field goal on a 10 play 36 yd drive. Forced to punt after a three and out the Saints punter delivered with a 66 yard net punt pinning the Giants inside the 10. Rookie WR Sterling Sheppard would take an out route up the field 92 yards for the Giants first TD of the year and a 10-0 lead. A few plays later DRC would take an interception to the house giving the Giants a 16-0 lead and they never looked back.
Gg Cheez can't wait to play ya again
Browns Take Down Ravens 27-14
After losing their 12th straight season opener, the Cleveland Browns jumped right into division play hosting the Baltimore Ravens. The Browns started off the scoring with a Jamar Taylor pick six in his first start of the season, replacing veteran Tramon Williams who struggled mightily in the opener. The Browns rattled out another 20 points in the form of a TD pass to Josh Gordon, a Crowell touchdown scamper, and a couple Patrick Murray field goals. The Ravens scored two late touchdowns in the form of Flacco TD passes to Maxx Williams and Breshad Perriman, respectively. For the second game in a row the Browns did not turn the ball over in what has to be a promising sign for head coach Hue Jackson. "I am enjoying our ball security, however I feel like it might actually be hindering our offense a bit. We have not been moving the ball all that well and it might just be due to our reluctance to take risks," Hue said in his post game presser. He continued, "Besides risk taking, our offensive line just hasn't held up to give Robert the time he needs to take the shots we want him to. He was able to hook up with Gordon today, but that was one of the rare chances he had to sit back in a clean pocket." Griffin was sacked 3 times on Sunday bringing his season total to 12 in what has become a worrisome trend. It doesn't get any easier for the Browns as they head to Miami next week to take on Cameron Wake and the Miami Dolphins. Good game bawvu97
Kansas City Chiefs @ Houston Texans
The Chiefs came out swinging hard early on. Texans missed a couple of plays earky, then the Maddening kicked in. Texans fell behind 27-0. Then 30-7 at the Half.
Second half HFA helped the Texans get back in it, but when it got close in the 4th Madden gave the Chiefs a perfect drive for the TD.
FINAL: KC 37 - HOU 27
(Too disappointed to do stats)
Sorry we couldn't play Dru50
We'll jump right to the fourth for this one.
With Buffalo leading it 6-3. Ryan Fitzpatrick who didn't have his best game, led the Jets down the field to score the go ahead TD when he found "The Machine" Brandon Marshall 1v1. Marshall was a bit better than Ronald Darby on this play, and it was a great catch to give to the Jets the lead with under 3 minutes in the game.
From there, Shady McCoy took over, gaining 45 yards on a run. Tyrod Taylor did the rest. Buffalo was at the Jets 10, when he took a brutal sack losing 10 yards. Instead of calling a timeout, Rex Ryan continued to run the offense. Tyrod Taylor found John Clay in the back of the end zone with 27 seconds left to make the score 12-10.
Having missed 1 xp already, and a FG as well. Rex decided to go for two, to ensure the Jets needing at least a TD in the final seconds. On the conversation attempt, as Tyrod dropped back, he missed a wide open McCoy, and was hit as he released the ball. FUMBLE! That was the call on the field. The Jets LB picked it up and raced the other way. Shady gave chase. It was a race, but the Jets player had a 15 yard head start. Shady dove at his feet at the 4 yard line, and barely missed. Conversion returned! The game was tied now 12-12 and headed to overtime.
I'm OT, the Jets rode the momentum, and the offense that didn't have its best day, moved down the field to score in 4 plays and end the game.
Undoubtedly, everyone on the stadium left asking what just happened! Can't wait for the rematch in NY.
What a ending...

Jax came into SD and got the win... SD jumped out to a lead 12-3 after 2 missed extra points and SD's kicking game was out of the picture due to kick meter lag...
Yeldin broke off a 68 yarder after SD second score and then led to a Jax td.
On the next drive sd would be inside the 10 and Gordon would fumble after a big hit and Jax would end the half with at fg making it 13-12.
The second half is where rivers fell apart throwing a handful of ints and Jax pulled away with the multiple score victory...
Yeah me too, hopefully next time schedules are kinder to us both. Best of luck the rest of the way.
Panthers bounce back after superbowl rematch loss!
After a tough week last week for Cam Newton throwing for multiple interceptions, he was able to bounce back throwing for 331 yards and 4 touchdowns finishing with a qb rating of 153.9 at home.
Kaepernick on the other hand passed for 321 but finished with a rating of 65.1 with an interception.
Jonathon stewart led the run game for the Panthers with 116 yards and a touchdown.
49ers struggled early against the panthers stout defense while Carolina's offense took advantage going up 21-0 on the 49ers finishing the first half up 31-6. The second half was lead by defenses as both teams failed to muster many points. In the end the Panthers win 41-16 over the 49ers
Buccaneers @ Cardinals
After losing at home in the opening game, the Cardinals came into their second home game ready to win. On the first Cardinals offensive play David Johnson ran it into the end zone from the Cardinals 25 yard line. The Buccaneers had a chance to stop him early but whiffed the tackle. That set the tone for the rest of the game as the Cardinals flew ahead while limiting the Buccaneers to single digit points until the 4th quarter. The final tally was 41-13 Cardinals.
Stats and Highlights:
Rams pick up a W #1 at home vs Seahawks
The first quarter started off great for the Rams and rookie Jared Goff was hot connecting on 2 Tds both to T.Austin and the Rams were up 17-0 after the 1st. The rest of the game tho was a different story with Seattle scoring a td and LA adding a fg the score was LA 20 SEA 7 at half. LA could not get a running game going and the offense struggled but the luckily the defense held their ground that is until the 4th quarter( which seems to happen a lot to me) when SEA scored 16 unanswered points and the game went into overtime. LA got the ball first but could do nothing with it and was forced to punt. LA's D knew they had to come up big again and they did stopping Seattle and getting the ball back LA's offense was able to get in fg range and Zuerlein was able to make his 4th fg of the day and give LA the victory 26-23 gg GMONEY 15
Raiders fight turnover fever and come away with the victory in their home opener.
the highlight of the game was the return of Dmac who took his first carry to the house, not bad for a guy a day removed from the Cowboys' dumpster.
New England's defense held Tannehill and company to short gains and forced 4 turnovers on the day , improving to 2-0 on the seasons. This game was pretty close until the second half , with the Pats outscoring Miami 14-0.
Good game xSavedByGracex , see you again soon.
