National Football League week one: the good, unimpressive and embarrassing

NFL Fantasy: Biggest Fantasy Busts From Week 1

NFL Fantasy: Biggest Fantasy Busts From Week 1

After fumbling on his first professional carry, Hunt gained his confidence back.

The article, titled "Backs In Style: The Ground Game's Next Gen Breaks Through", highlights rising star running backs across the National Football League.

On top of taking 7 points off of the board early, the referees chose to eject cornerback Jeremy Lane from the game for throwing a punch during the exact same play.

Low scoring is the story of the weekend with the Houston Texans, San Francisco 49ers, Cincinnati Bengals, Seattle Seahawks, New York Giants and the Indianapolis Colts all failing to put double digits on the scoreboard.

Quarterback Andrew Luck is ruled out against the Arizona Cardinals in Week 2 which means bettors are likely to see another week with Scott Tolzien under center for the Colts. Under new coach Sean McVay, Goff had probably his best day as a pro, throwing for 306 passing yards with one touchdown and no interceptions.

Todd Gurley struggled to produce much out of his 19 rushes, but he still managed to score a touchdown en route to the victory.

The Bengals looked bad, with quarterback Andy Dalton finishing with five turnovers and leading the offense to zero points. The offense was deadly and the defense was vicious, with three sacks and 6.5 tackles for loss. They held the Colts to just 225 yards of total offense, and also added on four sacks.

Their strong defensive line, led by centerpieces Aaron Donald (who is expected to make his 2017 debut next Sunday after holding out this offseason) and Robert Quinn should continue to wreak havoc versus opposing offensive units.

The Patriots got slapped on Thursday night by the Chiefs, losing 42-27 and showed a real weakness against the run on defense.

The wide receiver duo of Adam Thielen and Stefon Diggs both impressed on Monday night. Thielen caught nine passes for 157 yards, while Diggs had seven receptions for 93 yards and two touchdowns. Even better, the D scored 16.

Following his strong finish last season, Thielen looks like he's picked up right where he left off. Diggs, on the other hand, finally resembles the receiver he was early previous year before a groin injury slowed him down.

Quarterback Andy Dalton turned the ball over five times in what, very well, could have been his worst career outing as a pro player.

This team, known for its explosive offense, kicks four field goals and looks inept in the red zone.

The 2017 NFL season is now in full swing with an entire weekend of meaningful football in the books.

If his early season performance against the Ravens is any indicator of his play for the year, expect to hear chants of AJ McCarron's name soon.
