    Pat's lose their first game. A one off or a sign of things to come?

    Rams

    49ers

    Great market for multiple teams in the area.

    At least you'll know that Jared Goff will definitely hear you call him a hack. That's gotta be worth the $50 bucks you pay to get in.

    I think the Chiefs and Raiders will both do very well, so much speed in that Chiefs offense and the defense is pretty good too.

    If the Raiders defense has improved they will go close.

    LA Chargers could be good this year, offense and defense both look good on paper.

    Baltimore Ravens also could be a contender, the defense looks back to their best so if the offense can show something they could go well.

    Interesting to see how the Vikings get on tonight as they are another team that have the tools to do well, apart from the offensive line.

    Jacksonville Jaguars could surprise a few this year, they have some top draft picks on defense and finally look like they may have a decent running back in Leonard Fournette. The Rams too, they will be better than most think.

    Colts, 49ers, Jets will struggle the most I reckon, maybe the Redskins too.


    I have tickets for all 4 London games this season which will be my first time going so looking forward to that.

    Jacksonville were very impressive, especially their D-Line. Fournette as well, as you mentioned.

    My 3rd favourite sport .

    Having been lucky enough to attend the game last season when Denver beat the bengals to clinch playoff's , after years hating the Broncos , they're now my team.

    I see the the Patriots bouncing back and being the team to beat still.

    Minnesota Vikings were very impressive, never seen Bradford play so well. Thought the OL might struggle being mostly new players but they were top draw. Rookie RB Cook was impressive too.

    Add that to the very good defense they could go a long way this year, though they started well last year so will have to keep it up.

    Texans defence looking a lot more like we would expect last night, restricting Bengals to three field goals (first team not to score a TD in their two opening home games since the 1930's). Watson looked raw but essentially won the match with his 49-yard rushing TD.

    Being a Bears fan is painful.

    Might as well have kept Cutler cause Glennon is god awful!
    Get Trubisky in the game he certainly cannot do any worse.

    The GM Pace and Coach Fox need sacking they are inept beyond belief at their jobs.

    Yeah, I'm sure he retired but Dolphins had injury problems so offered him a 1 year contract.

    Brady's a clever QB throwing a kind of hail mary knowing Saints had 12 players on the pitch. Smart.

    I've never been massively into the NFL, but recently, for some reason, I've actually enjoyed watching it.

    I don't know why that is necessarily, although I did start watching the NFL show on BBC1 last year, which was helpful in terms of explaining how the game is played and the nuances etc...

    I don't have a team or anything but it's entertaining for sure, which is something I wouldn't have said a few years back.

    It helps when there is ****** all to watch on a Sunday night.

    That's a pretty smart stadium the Atlanta Falcons have in the Mercedes-Benz Stadium.

    Cutler is a shocking QB. Being shut out by one of the worst teams in the league is a joke.

    Just got back from Wembley, the Ravens were an embarrassment on offense, defense wasn't more better though the Jaguars played very well.

    Had a good day, hopefully next weeks game is a bit more competitive.
