First NFL week

with one comment

The football season has officially begun, with the New York Giants vs the Dallas Cowboys for the opening game with the Cowboys winning. And yesterday had amazing catches, and a record that hasn’t been broken for over 60 years.

Yesterday the Indianapolis Colts played against the Chicago Bears, and this was also Andrew Luck’s first game as a Colt. The game started out in the Colts favor with a sack to Jay Cutler and an interception that led to a TD, all within the first quarter. But the Bears came back and tied the score.  Afterwards Cutler seemed to get his game on and found reciever after reciever and gained the lead. Unfortunatly the Colts could not take back the lead and the game ended 41-21 in the Bears favor. Even though the Colts lost Andrew Luck had made his first NFL TD pass, to Donne Avery.

Another rookie QB that had his first game was Robert Griffin III, with amazing passes for a win for the Redskins. RGIII also was the first QB in over 60 years to get 40+ points in the first game. He certainly has had a great start to the season, and he has a good furture ahead of him.

One other game that was amazing was the Denver Broncos vs. the Pittsburgh Steelers. This was Peyton Mannings first game back into football after 610 days on not playing, and he hasn’t lost his touch. For some it was sad to see Manning in another color but others it was a celebration time, Manning was back and playing. Happy to say they won the game 31-19 and have a chance to make it to the playoffs.
