Week 1 of the NFL Season is done. Football is officially back. Week 2 is coming faster than midterms and exams on the 2nd day of a philosophical mathematics class. A lot of happenings. Writer note: this were some of my observation during the game and some of the things that were going through my mind regarding every game of week 1. Enjoy the long read.

Eagles beat Falcons 18-12: Setting the Standards Low…

Matt Ryan looked like a prime Joe Flacco, more times than other it seem like he found a way to lose the game than he did to win it. Julio Jones is on the way to becoming the next “Megatron”, Calvin Johnson. Deciding Nonsense!! 1st quarter, 1st & Goal, 2nd & goal, 3rd & Goal, 4th & Goal!! No touchdown. Do the Atlanta Falcons even practice a goal line formation? QB Sneak? The only thing that needed to happen was for Ryan to receive the ball and fall forward. Nonsense or NonSense!! The only positive that Nick Foles accomplish during the game was to emphasize how much Carson Wentz is needed for this team to be successful.

Nonsense: Falcons cant used “super hangover” as an excuse for this season. Make or break season for the Falcons. Some players, staff and/or coaches could be working on their resumes as early as week 7 of the season.

Broncos 27 – Seahawks 24: Case Keenum & Russell Wilson looked really good and really bad…

Russell Wilson and Case Keenum put on a show, went back and forth in this game, they combined for 6 touchdowns and 5 interceptions, like I said good and bad. Running game on both side of the ball was pretty nonexistent, so both QBs were letting it rip, it was a fun game to watch. Keenum did a lot better than expected, Von Miller was a beast and Emmanuel Sanders looked the fantasy steal of the year. On the other side, Wilson looks like he will put up MVP numbers, but unfortunately may not translate to wins.

Nonsense Note: Brandon Marshall’s touchdown surpasses the number of TDs he had last year with the Giants (0). #ComebackYear #ComebackSeason #ComebackKid

Steelers and Browns tied at 21: Am calling it a win for the Browns…

Yes, a tie is not a win and probably worse than a loss. But for the Browns this is a win, like a beacon of hope. In the movie “Bad News Bears” Billy Bob Thornton goes on to say “a tie is like kissing your sister, but the way we’ve been playing, it’s more like kissing a really hot stepsister”. So what if the Bud Light coolers will have to stay locked for another couple more weeks. PS. Am picking the Browns > Jets. Lastly, Browns can’t go 0-16, so they got that going for them. PS James Conner right?

Nonsense Alert: Le’Veon Bell pulling a Kawhi Leonard. Smh. Sorry for whoever drafted him in fantasy.

Andrew Luck played a full game vs the Bengals, lose 34-23…

Congrats to Andy Dalton and the Bengals on the win, but hold up Andrew Luck had better game after not playing for such long time. {Insert Kanye West Meme here, with Andy Dalton replacing Taylor Swift}. Where is Chuck Pagano?

Delayed after delayed, Dolphins beat Titans 20-27…

Welcome back Ryan Tannerhill (**Kanye West comes back and yells again, that Andrew Luck had one of the best comeback games of the year**). Defense was not played in the 4th quarter in which both teams score 17 points, talk about a good day for fantasy. Is nothing new seeing the Titans start the season with some struggles and losing Walker week 1 doesn’t help either. Dolphins looked good even without Davante Parker in the line-up.

Nonsense note: Malcom Butler got an interception, just saying.

49ers vs Vikings & Texans vs Patriots: Big Brother vs Littler Brother.  Just a bad matchup…

The 49ers and the Texans are 2 teams that are trending up and are hoping to make noise this year. Even though they both loss, overall there was a lot of positives for both teams. Patriots and Vikings can be said are two of the top teams in the NFL. Both teams put up a fight but at the end of the day it was a big brother vs little brother fight. While the big brother won, he also may have started to realized, that little brother is getting stronger, it was 1 score difference.

Nonsense notes: it was just a bad matchup. 49ers and Texans should bounce back pretty strong, also 2 teams that are extremely fun to watch. Jimmy Garoppolo is not perfect anymore.

Fitz-magic embarrasses the Saints 48-40

Remember how everybody (myself included) scratch off the Buccs completely specially without Winston. Well, they put up some nonsense. Can they do again next week? Who cares, they blindsided the Saints, and it was awesome. Alvin Kamara and Michael Thomas fantasy football numbers were unrealistic.

Nonsense note: before you all lose your head and go all in Fitz-Magic, Buccs play the Eagles next week.

Jaguars suck against the Giants but still get the win…

Bortles and Manning QB rating is sad. The Jaguars organization know that Bortles is not their QB but couldn’t justify firing him last year, so here we are. Jaguars get the win but most importantly probably started hiring some new scouts and agents to find a QB. OBJ got 111 yards on his 1st game back. Say what you want but the Giants look kind of good.  

Nonsense note: Barkley 106 yards debut has to be an eye opener. Giants’ only got over 100 yards production out of the backfield twice last year. Barkley is the truth.

Bills may go 0-17, because when you’re tanking, bye week still a loss…

Bills 2018 season couldn’t have started better, mission accomplished. Every team at some point in time has to hit the reset button, the Bills are going a step above and beyond they are unplugging everything. Nathan Peterman should not be blame for what is happening there, yes he is not helping his case but he is not fully to blame. Speaking to Nonsense Sports co-host Ryan about the game, he said “Joe Flacco played elite that game, not saying he is elite”, hey dress for the job that you want, Flacco did that. Collins is the brightest spot in the Ravens.

Nonsense note: 98% of the credit for the win should go to the Bills. 2% should go on the Ravens. If anything we should just move on from this game, Ravens shouldn’t get that much credit for winning an impossible to lose game.

Andy Reid’s System or is it the player? Mahomes vs Smith? Déjà vu in the making…

Let’s go back to last year week 1 matchup Chiefs vs Patriots, Smith throws 4 touchdowns, Hunt 148 yards on 17 carries, and Hill 133 Yards breaking out for 75 yards. Compare to this year, Mahomes 4 touchdowns, Hun 49 yards on 16 carries, and Hill 169 yards breaking out for 58 yards. So I ask again is it Andy Reid’s system or the players? The numbers are extremely similar, hey and there is nothing wrong with a winning formula. Last year chiefs started 5-0 before coming back down to reality. Teams shouldn’t dwell on the past, the system is working, but can this system win it all for them.

Nonsense note: If you don’t have Tyreek Hill on your fantasy team you’re wrong.

Adrian Peterson is a creation of Doctor Frankenstein…

Peterson ended the game with 96 yards rushing and 70 receiving putting the cherry on top with a touchdown. Peterson should be tested for cyborg parts or Iron Man’s nuclear generator power source. Alex Smith debuts with a win, “cool story bro”, remember this moment Week 7/8 of the season. David Johnson, who recently signed a new contract, led the backfield in their 68 yards total with 37. I hate watching the Cardinals, Larry Fitzgerald is a monster on leach made off horrible QBs.

Nonsense note: the Redskins look so good you almost forget that most of their players are pretty old and past their primes and won’t be able to keep this production going. Chris Thompson is underrated, making him a steal in fantasy, I drafted him.

Zeke and Dak honey moon is over, Cowboys could be looking at rough times…

Bryant trolling the Cowboys was glorious, but really man go get a job. The Cowboys went all in on Dak and Zeke. After week 1, I wonder if Jerry Jones had some nightmares that show Romo throwing touchdown to Bryant and Witten. Good old days. Regarding the Panthers, I wonder if during the off season Newton’s pitches out a play to the coaches call the Newton special, it goes like this – Newton hikes the ball to Newton, fakes a defender, fakes another one, fakes 14 defenders and the opposing cheerleading squad, Newton looks downfield, he doesn’t see anybody open, he fakes one more defender and finally sees his target, Cam Newton, Newton gives the signal and throws the ball to Newton for the touchdown!!! Newton looks towards the sideline, Coach Newton is proud.

Nonsense note: all jokes aside Cam Newton had 58 rushing yards, that’s more than anybody rushed or received for in the game.

PS. You’re somewhat killing my fantasy team, there is no CAM NEWTON in team.

Rodgers gave the Packer nation a heart attack and then proceeded to fully revive them.  I wonder if Oakland blocked the Bears game so they couldn’t see Khalil Mack…

Gruden destroy the Raiders and gave the Bears all their gold, CHANGE MY MIND. Rodgers is the heart and soul of the Packers, he needs to be protected and wrap in bubble wrap when he is not playing. Two sacks is too many sacks. Maybe just me, but I wouldn’t play Rodgers vs Vikings so early in the season, bring him back to play the Redskins, Bills, Lions and 49ers. #HealthyRodgersIsAWinningRodgers

Sam Darnold from pick 6 to 2 Touchdowns!! Jets stumped the Lions!! A lot to very little!!

I won’t lie, I didn’t see this coming. The Jets team ruined Matt Patricia coaching debut and almost sent him back to Bill Belichick for a couple more years and coaching lessons. Overall just speechless.

Nonsense note: the Jets are nonsense.

Raiders looked really good about 2 quarters and minus 3 interceptions!!

The Rams looked sluggish and just not ready against the Raiders. Most importantly Todd Gurley didn’t score the 4 touchdowns that I needed to win week 1 of fantasy football.  Whatever Gruden is doing with the Raiders is not pretty and it doesn’t look fun at all. On the positive side, Jared Cook rose to the occasion receiving 181 yards. The Raiders are on full reset mode and I don’t think that it looks pretty. Well good luck.

Well, that’s it!! That’s all the games for week 1!! Week 2 can’t come any faster.

Let’s talk some Nonsense!!

What do you guys think was something that was absolute Nonsense Week 1?

Example Julio Jones catch.
