Bears 29, Colts 13 - WoW! Matt Forte rushes 23 times for 123 yards. Of course, take away the 50 yard TD and he is only averaging around 3.5 ypc. Former defensive MVP Bob Sanders is supposed to prevent gouging runs like that. What a way to break in the Colts new stadium.
Falcons 34, Lions 21 - This was the league toilet bowl matchup, so I'm not sure we can call this an upset. Maybe we didn't give the Falcons enough credit toward their rebuilding effort. Big plays by Michael Turner AND Matt Ryan.
Bills 34, Seahawks 10 - OK, maybe this wasn't an upset. Many have the Bills pegged as a playoff dark horse this year. What's upsetting (at least to Seahawks fans) is that they beat the Seahawks by 24 points. Never overlook the importance of special teams.
OK...I know it's early. Every year on opening day some teams play to their expectations and some just fall flat on their face. I believe that the Chargers and Colts will turn things around. Teams like the Lions and Chiefs will continue to struggle. The Seahawks are in big trouble. What will the Falcons and Bills show us next week? Good luck to Matt Cassel.
