Fantasy Football: TPS Monday Afternoon Quarterback (Week 1)
Total Pro Sports – With the first weekend of football behind us, we would like to give our rundown of what happened around the league on Sunday. Each Monday, we will provide a one sentence overview of each game around the league, as well as fantasy teams that likely won or lost you you games.
Here is our week one edition of the TSP Monday Afternoon Quarterback.
Tennessee 10 at Pittsburgh 13 – As you would expect, it was a defensive battle, but that Santonio Holmes guy looked pretty good.
Miami 7 at Atlanta 19 – Matt Ryan looked good, but should we begin to worry about Michael Turner and the curse of 370?
Kansas City 24 at Baltimore 38 – Forget sophomore jinx, Joe Flacco looks more like a sophomore stud.
Philadelphia Eagles 38 at Caroila Panthers 10 – Story of two quarterbacks as McNabb looked great and got hurt, while Panthers’ fans culd only wish it was their quarterback with the broken ribs.
Denver 12 at Cincinnati 7 – The worst game turned into the best on one play. If only Ohcocinco could Twit about that.
Minnesota 34 at Cleveland 20 – Adrian Peterson is still a horse.
New York Jets 24 at Houston 7 – So much for the rise of the Texans offense, and how about that Sanchez kid.
Jacksonville 12 at Indianapolis 14 – Goodbye Manning to Harrison, hello Manning to Wayne.
Detroit 27 at New Orleans 45 – Six down, and only 44 more to go for Brees. Look out Brady!
Dallas 34 at Tampa Bay 21 – Terrell Owens who?
San Francisco 20 at Arizona 16 – Could we be back to seeing the same old Cardinals?
Washington 17 at Giants 23 – Can someone please get the Skins a quarterback.
