By MARCUS GARCIA
- New York Jets
The Jets have lost a lot of talent this last offseason, and did not even look like a professional team with their week 1 performance. With no real quarterback, the Jets really do not seem like a real football team.
- Indianapolis Colts
The Colts are missing out on Andrew Luck due to injuries for another season, and the team is scrambling to try to fix their issue. Their backup is not good enough to run that offense and all the talent they have is going to waste this season.
- San Francisco 49ers
The 49ers are doing their best to come back to the super team they were a few years back, but with no true quarterback, it is hard for them to please their fans. Losing key parts of their defense this offseason, the team is struggling after their week 1 defeat.
- Chicago Bears
The Bears spent a lot of money of quarterback Mike Glennon, and he did not live up to his paycheck week 1. The Bears lost their first game and trying to rebuild their team with good draft picks and free agency moves, it could be awhile before the Bears are competing again.
- Cleveland Browns
The Browns looked a lot more impressive than most teams expected, they held up with the Steelers and only lost by 3 points. They also had to play without their number one draft pick. The team does have a lot of potential this year.
- Houston Texans
The Texans realized that Tom Savage is not going to be their quarterback this year, and they went with their rookie Deshaun Watson who had a good NFL debut with a touchdown and one interception. The team can turn stuff around this season after the 22 point loss to the Jaguars.
- Cincinnati Bengals
Andy Dalton threw 4 interceptions in this seasons debut and fans were not very happy. The Bengals have a lot of talent on their roster and they could turn it around, but Andy Dalton needs to be a better quarterback.
- New Orleans Saints
The Saints got AP in the offseason and still could not put him to use. No running back really stood out and once again it was Brees carrying the load, doing his best to lead the team. Unfortunately they lost their week one game and look to improve.
- Washington Redskins
Kirk Cousins had a terrible week 1 performance, posting a 33.8 QBR. The Redskins did not get a win to start the season and the team lost some key players on the offensive side. It is going to be a rough season for the Redskins.
- Miami Dolphins
The Dolphins were not able to play due to Hurricane Irma, but the season is in the air for the Dolphins. Week 2 will show their true talent from their moves this offseason
- Arizona Cardinals
The Cardinals lost their number one running back and have lost a lot of hopes as David Johnson played a key part in their wins. The Cards are known for defense and it is going to be a questionable season.
- Los Angeles Chargers
The Chargers almost came back from 17 point deficit in the 4th quarter. After getting a game tying field goal blocked, the Chargers left the stadium disappointed. They look a lot better than expected and had a good showing.
- Buffalo Bills
LeSean McCoy had over 150 scrimmage yards in week 1 and the Bills got their win to start. While there was some questions about the team as an overall, they started off strong with a win.
- Jacksonville Jaguars
The Jaguars had a 22 point win and had 10 sacks on the defensive end. While Blake Bortles had a terrible game throwing the ball, the team was still able to come up with a big win. The Jags could be on the rise this year.
- New York Giants
The Giants lost their week 1 game and lost it bad. With the absence of OBJ, Eli Manning lost his main target and their defense got shredded apart by the Cowboys offense. The Giants need OBJ back and their two-time Super Bowl winning quarterback back in season form.
- Tennessee Titans
The Titans took on the Raiders, a team with Super Bowl hopes this season, and they played good football, but in the end the Raiders were the better team. Marcus Mariota looks good and the Titans team as a whole can be a playoff team this season.
- LA Rams
The Rams scored 46 points in their season opener and got away with the win, (hopefully with that many points). The Rams are in great form and with wins like that can be a playoff team.
- Tampa Bay Buccaneers
The Bucs did not play due to Hurricane Irma, but look to be a playoff team behind Jameis Winston and Mike Evans.
- Baltimore Ravens
The Ravens defense was alive and played great in their shutout victory. While Joe Flacco only threw the ball 17 times, their rushing offense was another key part of their win. If they get Joe Flacco back and fully healthy, the Ravens can be a deadly team.
- Minnesota Vikings
The Vikings quickly forgot about Adrian Peterson with the rookie Dalvin Cook putting up phenomenal numbers out of the back field. With Sam Bradford coming from a record-breaking completion percentage season, and the defense stronger than ever, the Vikings are going to be a deadly team this season.
- Carolina Panthers
The Panthers won their week 1 game, but Cam Newton still has his non-elite accuracy from last season as he was unable to complete more than 60% of his passes. Their defense played well and their rookie running back, Christian McCaffrey showed played out in a great NFL debut.
- Denver Broncos
The Broncos controlled the Chargers the entire game until the 4th quarter when Philip Rivers led a 14 point turnaround, and got his team in field goal position to send the game to overtime. As the Chargers kicker kicked his first NFL field goal, the Broncos special teams blocked it, saving the potential comeback and getting their first win.
- Detroit Lions
The Lions started off with a pick six, and fell behind to start their season game off, but last season Matthew Stafford led the NFL in comebacks and that is exactly what he did. He turned the team around and scored 35 points to win them their first game.
- Seattle Seahawks
The Seahawks were not able to put up one touchdown against a surprising Packers defense. It was a tightly contested game and Seattle played great defense as well but were unable to get the win. Do not judge the Seahawks talent or season off of this game, as it was closer than it seems on paper and they played great football.
- Philadelphia Eagles
Carson Wentz is a young quarterback with a lot of talent and potential. The Eagles played a great season opener and Wentz looked great. If their offseason additions can perform, the Eagles can make a playoff run.
- Atlanta Falcons
The Falcons played the Bears in their season opener and won, they played a good game against a team that could barely keep up. Coming off of the disappointing Super Bowl loss, the Falcons are gonna be a deadly team this year.
- Dallas Cowboys
The Cowboys running back ate up runs and defenses as usual, and Dak had a good game, but Dak is not as good as he is hyped up to be. Dak needs to become a true, elite quarterback if the Cowboys want Super Bowl hopes, and hiding behind Elliott’s greatness is not going to get it done.
- New England Patriots
The Patriots got eaten alive in the 4th quarter by the Chiefs, and rookie running back Kareem Hunt proved his spot in the NFL by putting up record-breaking numbers in his NFL debut. While the Patriots did lose, they are the Patriots and have Tom Brady, and will always be in contention.
- Oakland Raiders
The Raiders acquired Marshawn Lynch in the offseason, and he made his impact as a big power runner in their first week. He totaled for 76 yards in limited touches and made a big impact against the Titans. The Raiders are going to be a deadly this team this season and Carr has turned into one of the best quarterbacks in the NFL.
- Pittsburgh Steelers
The Steelers had an impressive outing with their rookie draft picks adjusting to the NFL easily, their superstars playing their normal game, with the exception of Bell having a slow week one. The Steelers were one step away from a Super Bowl last year and may have just took that step.
- Green Bay Packers
The Packers played a nail biter against the Seahawks, with neither team having a single touchdown going into halftime. The Seahawks were the leading team at the half, but Aaron Rodgers and the Packers answered back in a big way. Ending with 17 points, the Packers were able to beat the too hard playing Seahawks.
- Kansas City Chiefs
The Chiefs beat the Patriots in a big upset for week one’s opening game. Their rookie running back set a NFL record for yards in a game on a debut against Tom Brady’s Super Bowl winners. Alex Smith also looked fantastic in his season debut and played a fantastic game, leading his team in a big fourth quarter destruction.
