- SAN DIEGO CHARGERS 0-1
Melvin Gordon got his first taste of pay-dirt after finding the end-zone for the first time in his career not once, but twice. After a strong pre-season, the sophomore running back will be hopeful to see his workload increase in the coming weeks, although he will have a hard time taking reps away from workhorse and PPR fantasy friendly Danny Woodhead.]
- SAN FRANCISCO 49ERS 1-0
The 49er’s looked as good as any of these teams ranked above the 20th spot on our rankings list. Blaine Gabbert had a controlled game, totaling 170 yards on 22/35 passing. Ohio State alumni Carlos Hyde carried two touchdowns into the end-zone amassing 88 yards on a 23 carries. Definitely keeping an eye on this team as the season progresses.
- BUFFALO BILLS 0-1
Not many headlines coming out of Buffalo besides the long list of in-actives for the Bills. Rex Ryan will have his work cut out for him in the going weeks and one way to start a winning streak could be to find more ways to give LeSean McCoy the ball.
- TENNESSEE TITANS 0-1
The Titans had control of this game at halftime with a 10-0 lead then in the second half, it all fell apart. Marcus Mariota connected with DeMarco Murray with two touchdown passes and that was the highlight of the day. Also, first-year receiver Tajae Sharpe caught 7 targets for 76 yards; not bad rook’.
- CHICAGO BEARS 0-1
If this past Sunday was an indication of the how the rest of the season will go for Chicago, I wouldn’t expect them to reach further than No.25 on our weekly rankings. This week offers another chance for Jay Cutler andAlshon Jeffery to showcase their talent in primetime against the Eagles on Monday Night Football.
- LOS ANGELES RAMS 0-1
Zero points on the scoreboard is pretty rough; rougher than trotting out Case Keenum out as your starting QB. Granted, the running game was unbearable to watch as Todd Gurley could only gain 2.8 yards per carry totaling a mere 47 yards on the day. Philadelphia started their number one pick, maybe Jeff Fisher should do the same.
- CLEVELAND BROWNS 0-1
When you reach rock bottom the only place to go is up, right? Sad day for the orange and brown as the conclusion to Sunday’s game brought question into the future of quarterback Robert Griffin III. The QB suffered a severe shoulder injury that will sideline him until at least week 10; not ideal for head coach Hue Jackson who was planning on resurrecting Robert’s career and putting the QB search on hold. Now, the journey-man back upJosh McCown will get the nod for the next game against Baltimore at home. If there is anything to keep an eye on this season, as the excitement of RGIII has flown out the window, look for the receiving core to develop under a QB who had his best season last year with the Browns. Also, production from the front seven on defense will be something to keep an eye on, as Danny Shelton, Carl Nassib, and Emmanuel Ogbah all turned in nice performances, a lone bright spot in the otherwise downward spiral of a football game.
