Week one has come and gone for the Indianapolis Colts, and there is one thing for sure…Jacoby Brissett is the right man for the starting quarterback position. Brissett appeared to be in complete control as he went 21 of 27, leading the offense to 376 yards, no turnovers, with a 77.8 completion percentage.
On Sunday, the Colts went to Los Angeles to face the Chargers as the NFL season kicked off. And although they played a good Chargers team that is always a Super Bowl contender, the Colts hung on. Ultimately they were defeated in a 30-24 loss in OT.
This matchup was nothing less than entertaining. When the schedule was released, it was felt that this matchup was going to be tough, and that was when QB Andrew Luck was still the starter.
Nothing is a gimme in the NFL, even if a backup quarterback has been slated to start under center. And the Buffalo Bills should be no exception.
That seems to be the case with Sunday’s matchup between the Buffalo Bills (1-7) and the Chicago Bears (4-3). The Bills have just come off a loss on Monday Night against the New England Patriots. The Bills defense was able to hold the run and passing game to just kicking points in the first three quarters.
It was only in the 4th quarter that the Patriots offense was able to anything. Running back James White sealed the deal with a touchdown while the Bills shut quarterback Tom Brady down through the air.
