The NFL season is finally upon us once again, and it’s been too long. Dating back to last February when the Philadelphia Eagles best the New England Patriots in literally the upset of the century. A backup quarterback in Nick Foles stood toe-to-toe with arguably the greatest quarterback in the history of the league Tom Brady. And he went shot for shot with him. Winning the MVP and getting the Eagles their first ring. But that was last season and this is a whole new year.

Week 1 was full of surprises, and was extremely unpredictable. There was a storyline for every game and the first week pretty much had it all.

The first game between the Falcons and the Eagles turned into the “Matt Ryan is Garbage” show. A lot of people expected the Falcons to beat the Eagles because of how bad Nick Foles looked in the preseason since he would be the starting quarterback but it didn’t happen for them. The Eagles went on to win 18-12 which is a great start to the season for the Super Bowl Champs.

Next up were the Ravens and Bills, and it’s official  — the Bills need to be kicked out of the league. They let up 47 points to only score a measly 3. Nathan Peterman is officially the worst quarterback in the world and the Bills need to do whatever they can to get Josh Allen on the field as soon as possible.

The Browns tied the Steelers this Sunday and it is their best start in years now.

The Jags beat the Giants this week, but there were a few bright sides to the game. First off, Odell played very well against the top corner in the league, Jalen Ramsey. He had 10+ catches for over 100 yards, and that is not something easy to do against that secondary. Also, Saquon, the number 2 pick in the draft went off for a 68 yard touchdown in his debut. Hopefully for Giant fans it’s a sign of things to come.

Aaron Rodgers and the Packers completed a 17 point comeback in one of Aaron’s greatest games ever. Khalil Mack of the Bears also played like a complete and utter beast on the field, wreaking havoc on the Packers’ offensive line.

And finally one of the last games of the week were the Jets and Lions. No one, and I mean no one, expected the Jets to just mutilate the Lions the way they did. They scored on all sides of the field — offense, defense, and special teams and nothing could stop them winning 48 to 17 scoring 31 unanswered points.

This week was one of the greatest first weeks in a long time and for all for all football fans out there, we just want it to get better and better.
