The NFL is really back. Sure, the season kicked officially kicked off on Thursday night, but it truly got going on Sunday with the first full slate of games. Among them were some unsurprising highlights and some extreme lowlights. One such low had to be the Cleveland Browns, much hyped, losing big at home to the Tennessee Titans 43-13 in one of the early games. Then, there was Kyler Murray’s debut for the Arizona Cardinals against the Detroit Lions.
While the defending Heisman winner started poorly, he would recover in spectacular fashion to lead them to an eventual 27-27 tie at home. At one point, he and his team found themselves down by 18 points, yet he rallied them back from the brink of defeat to tie the game up with 43 seconds left. The two teams then traded field goals in overtime before settling for the split. In the night cap, Tom Brady showed us once again that he’s just not human as he disassembled the Pittsburgh Steelers in a lopsided 33-3 home victory. Brady went 24-36 through the air for 341 yards and three touchdowns to begin his 20th professional season. Phillip Dorsett was his star receiver on the day, making four catches, two for touchdowns, and doing so for a total of 95 yards.
