The Patriots lost, the Jaguars won, David Johnson got hurt, and Chuck Pagano didn’t know where he was. It was just your average Week 1 in the NFL!
In the first of a weekly podcast this season, RealSport’s resident NFL experts Gur Samuel and Toby Durant bring you analysis and insight into a surprising lack of offense in Week 1 and look ahead to some games with big playoff implications already.
In a rematch of last year’s NFC championship game, can the Green Bay Packers (1-0) upset the opening of the Mercedes-Benz Stadium and gain some revenge over the Atlanta Falcons (1-0)? Both labored to victory in Week 1 but will need to be at full speed in the Sunday Night Football matchup this week.
Meanwhile, the Pittsburgh Steelers (1-0) look to stamp their authority on the AFC against a Minnesota Vikings (1-0) that are ready to step out of the shadows and into the spotlight after their domination of New Orleans on Monday night.
Gur & Toby discuss why some offenses are struggling and point to an offensive line crisis for a number of teams as well as discussing the merits of the yet-unseen Tampa Bay Buccaneers and if they can break their playoff drought.
