Exciting early games for Week One of the 2018 season!
Here are three quick notes from what I personally saw on NFL Sunday Ticket during the early games.
- Browns are much improved, and their defense should win them a few games. Great pass rush, linebackers forced the late turnover that could have one the game, and the secondary made outstanding plays.
- Tom Brady rules the two minute drill. The end of the first half of the Patriots/Texans game illustrated a clock management second to none. I hear Texans fans about the Rob Gronkowski call that might not have been a catch, but Brady worked the clock and made outstanding throws.
- Defense and Special Teams make the difference. Both pass rushes in the Steelers vs Browns game affected the outcome. The Bengals and Jaguars won on defensive touchdowns…and this punt by the Patriots was key in helping New England hold off the Texans.
That punt though.
