This week the NFL kicked off and there were plenty of highlights and great games for everyone to enjoy. This week in the NFL Rewind for week one we are going to cover star performances, great games and injury news.
When it comes to star performances no one did it better than New Orleans Saints quarterback Drew Brees. He threw for six touchdowns against the lowly Detroit Lions. He is on an incredible pace for the season and showed that the Saints will have one of the most dangerous offenses in the game. Not to be out done the Minnesota Vikings had a star performer and his name was not Brett Favre. Adrian Peterson showed why he is the best running back in the game as he shredded the Brown's defense for 180 yards and three scores. With games like this he is sure to be an all-pro this season.
In the opening week the games did not disappoint as there were five games that went down to the wire. Five games were decided by three points or less to include both Monday Night games. In the best game of the week the Buffalo Bills gave away the game to the New England Patriots after being up by five points with the ball and two minutes left. Tom Brady showed why he is one of the best and he shook off early rust to throw the game winning touchdown in the waning moments of the game. The big upset of the week goes to the San Francisco 49ers as they upset the Arizona Cardinals on the road. The first week of the NFL season was worth watching but had its share of bad news on the injury front.
For the Chicago Bears the news was devastating as they lost star linebacker Brian Urlacher for the remainder of the season. They are looking for players to replace him but can not replace his leadership on the field. The Eagles got hit hard too losing an all pro on the offensive line and superstar quarterback Donovan Mcnabb. Just when the fans imagined they would get to see Mike Vick under center the Eagles signed Jeff Garcia and we will most likely start after he gets settled in. Teams will have to adjust to life without some key starters early in the season.
That is the NFL Rewind for week one and if this is any indicator what the rest of the season will be like we are in for a great year!
