3 of 4


It’s only Week 1, and there’s so many I could list here, I’ll try not to burst with happiness on these.

Sep 5, 2013; Denver, CO, USA; Denver Broncos linebacker Danny Trevathan (59) drops the football after an interception causing a touchback on this play in the fourth quarter against the Baltimore Ravens at Sports Authority Field at Mile High.

This guy. Desean Jackson laughs accordingly. Ghost of Leon Lett?

Sep 8, 2013; East Rutherford, NJ, USA; New York Jets quarterback Geno Smith (7) is hit late out of bounds by Tampa Bay Buccaneers outside linebacker Lavonte David (54) drawing a personal could penalty and setting up a game winning field goal by the New York Jets during the second half at MetLife Stadium. The Jets won 18-17. Mandatory Credit: Joe Camporeale-USA TODAY Sports

This guy. Questionable penalty, but it cost them the game. David will rebound.

This team. 2 points. 2. Someone please trade for Maurice Jones-Drew.

Sep 8, 2013; Arlington, TX, USA; New York Giants running back David Wilson (22) fumbles the ball in the third quarter against Dallas Cowboys defensive tackle Nick Hayden (96) at AT

This guy. When you play bad enough to have Brandon Jacobs potentially come back to your team, yeah, that’s bad. David Wilson Tiki’d it up.

Sep 8, 2013; Pittsburgh, PA, USA; Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger (7) is sacked by Tennessee Titans inside linebacker Moise Fokou (rear) and defensive tackle Mike Martin (93) during the third quarter at Heinz Field. The Tennessee Titans won 16-9. Mandatory Credit: Charles LeClaire-USA TODAY Sports

This team. 2 points until the last 5 minutes of the game. You lose two players (Pouncey & Foote) for the year in the opening game. Things couldn’t be worse in Pittsburgh right now.

Honorable Mentions: Clay Mathews Late Hit, Darius Reynaud Doesn’t Know (Opening Kickoff Safety), Bill Leavy Fail, Mike Wallace Temper Tantrum; Texans/Chargers (pick either – blow a lead, or almost get beat)
