    Well what a turn up for the books!!

    Patriots started off brilliantly and looked like they would walk it and were so close to be being 17-0 up, but the key I feel was that the Chiefs constantly managed to pressurise Brady and break through the protection, whereas Smith for the Chiefs had great protection and had time to pick out his receivers. The Pats defence hardly got near him all night.

    Big shock still though and for all the so called 'strengthening' by New England, you just shouldn't be giving up anything like 42 points on your home soil.

    I just watched the highlights, great 75 yard TD by KC. I still can't believe the super bowl champions could give up that many points at home

    The Madden curse strikes early this year, really wasn't expecting that.

    I so hope your right,hopefully Carr will have fully recovered from his broken leg, he has all the ingredients to be the outstanding quarterback. Love the description last year of Khalil Mack as a 1 man wrecking machine, again a player who seems destined to be an all time great.
    The Raiders have in many ways mirrored CCFC after years of failure, and yet they have retained a loyal and fanatical fanbase, who deserve a 'return to greatness'. The Raider Nation are desperate for the team to return to the days,when they were a dominant franchise. Its time for them to deliver-Go Raiders.

    Same could be said for the Redskins. Once a dominant force, but been in very choppy waters for the most part for an absolute age.

    Not at ALL!!!
    2 turnovers, no passing game, no running game.

    Besides that everything else is just dandy.

    Yeah, that's much better. Two lucky breaks mind. Bad throw by Wentz for the interception and then Thompson should have been stopped following his reception.

    Not complaining though.

    I hate calling time outs when you're defending inside the two minutes. Without that I doubt they'd have got near enough for a field goal.

    Cousins having a bit of a mare. Happens with him from time to time. Most of the time he's a steady Eddie, but he has these off days. Not good enough if you are trying to earn a superbowl ring.

    That is a bad, bad call. Clearly a forward pass.

    Don't deserve anything from the game anyway though.

    0-1. Looking like a long hard season unless they can bounce straight back next week at the Rams.

    If it's 0-2 after Eagles and Rams then you can basically rule out playoffs already.

    Yep. That's the thing with a 16 game season. Not much room for error.

    Rawls inactive, I'm starting to doubt if it'll happen for him.

    I can't abide it at all, the only salvation is that it's just one of those alternate ones that allows them to sell twice the tat

    That was a predictable game in the end. Solid defences, a little moment of Rodgers brilliance and Wilson having to run for his life as the OL protects him with the sturdiness of wet paper towels.

    No way is there 60K at this game, even when tickets were going for $6

    49ers didn't do much better
