The First Week is in the Bag

This week saw some interesting changes to the NFL. John Gruden moved from the booth to the sideline for the Monday night game. The Raiders started strong and it looked as if Gruden would start his return to the NFL with a win as they went to the locker room up six. But three interdeptions in the second half by Derek Carr spoiled those dreams. The Los Angeles Rams looked great, although it was the defense that impressed.

Green Bay was getting all they could handle from the Bears and all looked lost when Aaron Rodgers was driven to the locker room with an injury to his left knee. But Rodgers came out of the tunnel to start the second half and played lights out in spite of the fact that he was clearly favoring his left knee. His performance was close to heroic as sports gets as he pulled the Packers ahead to win this one by a point. He will not, however, be able to play this coming week.

Dallas looks to have a lot of work to do this year as they were doubled by the Carolina Panthers.
