What we learned from week 1 of the NFL season

Eagles 38, Lions 35: It took the Lions a long time to make a game out of this. Quarterback Jared Goff was 3-of-10 for 6-yard passes and an early pick-6, but he got a second-half boost from D’Andre Swift, who had several gains to keep the offense ahead of the sticks. . It wasn’t enough, though, as the Eagles capitalized on AJ Brown’s 155 receiving yards to win.

Dolphins 20, Patriots 7: Both offenses came into this game with questions about their new schemes and young quarterbacks. Only the Dolphins left him feeling optimistic about his makeover. Even with a pointless Miami running game, Tua Tagovailoa rattled off 23-of-33 passes for 270 yards, a touchdown and no interceptions, finding Tyreek Hill and Jaylen Waddle for 163 of those yards. New England’s Mac Jones wasn’t so lucky as he was constantly under siege, making it difficult to do anything other than run the ball quickly to the plane or throw balls of hope and prayer.

24 from Raven, 9 from Jet: The Jets decided that having backup quarterback Joe Flacco throw 59 passes was the way to win a game. In the year two thousand and twenty two. Against Lamar Jackson. The Ravens quarterback found his way on vertical passes, connecting with Rashod Bateman and Devin Duvernay for touchdowns of more than 25 yards. Jackson’s contract campaign is off to an excellent start.

Commanders 28, Jaguars 22: Carson Wentz had an extremely Carson Wentz game, throwing four touchdowns (a couple of which required excellent touch) and seemed to try to throw the game away in the second half. His two interceptions led to 10 Jaguars points and brought Trevor Lawrence back to life. In the end, Wentz led Washington on a 13-play touchdown drive to end this one.

26 Brown, 24 Panther: Baker Mayfield led a gutsy 17-point fourth quarterback, but the surprise was how much Carolina’s offense struggled to run against Cleveland’s untested interior defensive line. Christian McCaffrey had just 33 yards on 10 carries and watched as the Browns’ Nick Chubb tore through the Panthers’ frontcourt for 141 yards on 22 carries. With the team playing behind backup quarterback Jacoby Brissett, Chubb’s production gave the Browns’ offense enough stability to win.

Colts 20, Texans 20 (OT): It took three quarters for the Colts’ defense to keep Davis Mills from posting MVP numbers. For a good portion of the game, Mills had more than eight yards per attempt, regularly finding his tight ends at the seams for explosive plays. Jonathan Taylor wore down the Texans’ defense, rushing for 161 yards and a touchdown on 31 carries, but Indianapolis still walked away with a tie thanks to a missed 42-yard field goal attempt by goggle god Rodrigo Blankenship. with two minutes remaining. in overtime
