The Rams will need to figure out how to feed Gurley successfully, but when they do, that offense could become lethal. Low ratios mean low-scoring games that aren't very close, either - not exactly the hallmarks of entertaining football.
Covers Expert Ted Sevransky says he has concerns about the offensive production from the six teams held under 10 points in the first week.
It was a noteworthy game for Cincinnati Bengals starting quarterback Andy Dalton, but not in a positive way.
Same with units and coaches and everything else associated with the game. The Bengals have had a middle of the pack offense for the last three years.
It's only been one week, but the Rams are proving they're better than we may have thought.
The NFL season will continue on Thursday night when the Texans travel to Cincinnati to take on the Bengals.
Houston allowed 10 sacks and turned the ball over four times against Jacksonville on Sunday.
Buffalo head coach SEAN MC DERMOTT notched his first career victory as a head coach last week in the Bills' 21-12 win over the New York Jets. But that doesn't mean an 0-1 start is impossible to overcome as almost 25 percent of teams that lost the opener went to the playoffs. Houston's offensive line offered absolutely no help for their quarterback while he was on the field.
The Bears came oh so close to knocking off the defending NFC champions on Sunday, but it wasn't to be. The stadium, which will host Super Bowl LIII on February 3, 2019, is expected to have its unique retractable roof open for this game (weather conditions permitting) for the first time. To their luck, Colts star quarterback Andrew Luck was unable to play, meaning journeyman Scott Tolzien was set to start.
The G-Men are another case of a club that was missing its best player in Week 1. The Under is now 8-1 in the Giants' last nine regular season games. He scored three TDs in the game.
The line on this game has yet to be released as oddsmakers wait to hear on the availability of Beckham Jr. Their starting left tackle went on the IR in preseason and there was no real effort made at replacing him besides looking at their own depth chart.
Detroit quarterback MATTHEW STAFFORD passed for 292 yards and four touchdowns in the win over the Cardinals and has 27 game-winning drives in the fourth quarter or overtime since 2011, the most by a QB in the National Football League over that span. Rookie wide receiver KENNY GOLLADAY had two touchdown catches in the fourth quarter, including a 45-yarder, in his National Football League debut.
Speaking of those Niners - they're coming off a game which they failed to find the end zone once. Even better, the D scored 16.
