It’s a good thing Bill Belichick and Matt Patricia have had some extra time to examine everything that went wrong with their defense in the opener. Knowing the issues on the other side of the ball, Tom Brady might have more on him at age 40 than we thought.
Trevor Siemian came out firing well as the stronger starter for Denver, and the defense also found new life under new coach Vance Joseph. In other words, they looked like a playoff team again.
Possible overreaction: This could be a sign of big things to come for a team that ranked 21st in defensive scoring last season. Any defensive improvement turns the Packers into a serious threat.
Alex Smith threw four touchdown passes; Kareem Hunt set a league record with 246 Cheap Jerseys US yards from scrimmage in his NFL debut; and Tyreek Hill scored another 60-yard TD. Possible overreaction: If the offense keeps it up, the Chiefs are the team to beat in the AFC. FPI currently agrees, giving them a league-best 90 percent chance of making the playoffs.
The Patriots allowed the most yards (537) and points (42) by a Bill Belichick-coached team in Thursday’s loss to the Chiefs. Possible overreaction: The Patriots are still the team to beat, but if the defense can’t stop Alex Smith, how will it stop Drew Brees in Week 2? The Patriots’ first 0-2 start since 2001 Cheap Jerseys Wholesale seems like a distinct possibility now.
