Preseason NFL: some notes on week 1
After the Hall of Fame game between the Denver Broncos and the Atlanta Falcons began preseason NFL with the first day, and all thirty-two teams in the field between Thursday and Saturday. As always, warning of the obligation: it is the preseason, so the announcement of the enthusiasm or despair
Let's start with the derby, New York Giants and Jets won by the first of 31 to 22. Curiosity extra field is the suspension for a time of the meeting in the first time because of poor weather conditions. Debut in the field of Daniel Jones, the sixth overall pick (and contested) of the Giants in the Draft, lick in the chops. In his debut in the NFL Jones has completed five passes on five to launch a drive, long 79 yards and ended with a touchdown pass, at least for a little bit will mute the critics. In Jets no field for commanded her Veon Bell and the great drive played by Sam Darnold, who closed with a 4 out of 5, involving three receivers different. A good performance of the line that has given much time to the quarterback and wr who are always able to create separation. Adam Gase seems to have brought back the desire and strength to his players, and this is already a good news.

The Miami Dolphins host the Atlanta Falcons and win the game 34 to 27. Matt Shaub had to be reinstated after the bad performance of the Canton to keep the place of backups: 7 out of 8 in the first drive and 4 on the 14 to follow, the lights and shadows that will need to be thinned out by the end of August. In the Dolphins begins Fitzpatrick under center, but all expect to see Rosen in the work. The stats end of the game came from the Cardinals are not bad: 13 out of 20 for 191 yards with an interception and no touchdown passes. We need to write that Rosen has not had an easy life behind a line that is very permeable, which has struggled a lot to give him time to read. After a bad interception, Josh has led a great drive from two minutes in the final for the first time and it was solid even at the beginning of the third quarter before returning to the bench. We will see in the next game if Flores has already decided that Fitzmagic (cit) will be the starter week 1.

The Detroit Lions hosted the New England Patriots and are beaten for 31 to 7. The protagonist of the match for the Patriots was the rookie, So Keal Harry, who received two balls for 36 yards with the first plunge into it; Harry is due to come out for an injury that does not seem to worry about New England. In addition to the rookie throughout the department of receivers of the guests showed great skills leading to the ball with 12 different players that have made a reception report. For the Lions the season starts badly with a serious injury to Jermaine Kearse, the broken leg in the first drive of the game and season over. Even Tom Savage (yes, him, the pornstar favorite Sorry for the Disturbance) is due to come out from the field after having suffered two sacks devastating and end up in the concussion protocol. Matt Patricia and his staff will have to work a lot on the offensive line and the secondary if they want to give a meaning to the regular season.

The Buffalo Bills host the Indianapolis Colts and take home the win 24 to 16. Buffalo ranks Josh Allen for the first two drives, and the quarterback shows some small improvement, compared to last year, with still some nasty reading, but also of the good steps to a 6 on 11 and 66 yards in the final they do hope for an improvement in September. First race and first touchdown in the NFL for Christian Wade, who until 10 months ago was a rugby player. In the Colts as expected no Luck in director's cabin and many, many problems in attack. Jacoby Brissett and his companions have managed to bring home only 22 yards on three drives in attack, without ideas, and completely at the mercy of the defense of the Bills. The health of the owners will be crucial for the season of the Colts.
LOOK AT WADE GO! @ChristianWade3 starting the preseason with a B a N G

Another victory in the outer with the Carolina Panthers beat the Chicago Bears 23 to 13. One of the biggest fears for those who play fantasy football is the infamous committee of runningback, that is, most gamblers who divide the course into the attack. Will certainly not be the case for the Bears, but the performance yesterday of rookie David Montgomery (6 times for 46 yards and 1 TD) will not sleep serene to Mike Davis, at the time the first reserve of Tarik Coehn. In the battle of the kicker Elliott Fry is in advantage compared to Eddy Pineiro with the two errors of the second. Home-Panthers great satisfaction with the performance of rookie defensive end Brian Burns, for him, two sacks so far and a good vision of the game that, if confirmed, will lead him to be one of the owners in week 1.
The #Bears’ David Montgomery is going to be a PROBLEM!#CARvsCHI

Another win external is that of the Tennessee Titans 27 to 10 against the Philadelphia Eagles. The Eagles are looking for a runningback, and the two rookies on Thursday, have certainly enchanted. If Miles Sanders has on his part being a rookie, we expected something more from Jordan Howard arrived at by the Bears in the off season. News negative the wrist injury to Nate Sudfeld, who has broken a good performance of the qb who will have to skip a few weeks. In the Titans performance is insufficient for Marcus Mariota, who has closed 4 out of 8 for 24 yards, much better than Ryan Tannehill that scored 2 TD pass with 12 out of 16 and 130 yards. Positive news is the connection between Mariota and Adam Humpries target of 4 complete of the quarterback.
The Cleveland Browns beat the Washington Redskins on for 30 to 10. The beginning devastating for The Browns, who with Mayfield under the center cover 89 yards in only seven actions and with the quarterback and close the drive with a 5 out of 6 for 77 yards and the touchdown pass. In defense stellar performance of rookie Mack Wilson with two interceptions, one of which is reported in the endzone. The other day we published the story of Damon Sheehy-Guiseppi, recommended reading. In Redskins debut for the rookie qb Dwayne Haskins with the hope that it will become the future of the franchise. Haskins has closed with a number of discrete, 8 out of 14 for 117 yards, but two interceptions on the consciousness that tell us that the guy still has much work to do to become a regular in the position, but the preseason also serves to this.
Baker Mayfield off to a dangerous start. 5-for-6 with 77 yards and a TD on his first preseason drive.pic.twitter.com/uOFbFmQhEN

The Baltimore Ravens do not grant points to the Jacksonville Jaguars beating them 29 to 0. The three drive to Lamar(one), Jackson has distributed four balls (out of six launched) three receivers and different with a touchdown. Those who have been very much in evidence in the Ravens, is the kicker Norwegian Kaare Vedvik with four field-goal mark on four tempted, one from 55 yards. The place of Justin Tucker is not at risk, but we see a nice future for Vedvik in some other team, maybe Illinois. Little or nothing to say about the Jaguars that they have decided not to play with 30 players between injuries and the choices of the coaching staff. The rookie qb Gardner Minshew has become famous more for the beating that he took that as shown in the field.

The Green Bay Packers beat the Houston Texans 28-26. DeShone Kizer led the skill of the attack of the Packers finishing with 8 out of 13 for 102 yards and 1 TD, but also Tim Boyle in the second time has not disfigured with only five pass attempts, including 2 for six points. Good debut for Dexter Williams, the rookie runningback from Notre Dame, who brings the ball 14 times and gain 62 yards with an average of more than 4 yard per carry. In the Texans just a single quarterback available, the veteran Joe Webb that plays the whole game trying to do his best while not seen in the field the new arrival Duke Johnson. The main concern is the injury to Keke Coutee, who after missing last season came from the field to ankle problems.
The Arizona Cardinals beat the Los Angeles Chargers to 17 to 13. Kyler Murray immediately in the field to Arizona, and the performance is convincing, with 6 out of 7 for 44 yards and the only incomplete came to an error of his receiver, who had touched the side line before receiving the ball. The OL of the Cardinals does not seem improved compared to last year, but the ability to run Murray help you have some weapon available. All eyes are focused on the runningback of the Chargers saw the holdout of Melvin Gordon, who does not seem will end soon. Austin Ekeler led the five balls with a good gain of 40 yards, but with a bloody fumble on the conscience, while Justin Jackson ran five times with a 4.4-yard average flow rate.
