Redskins Boot Jets in Opener

WASHINGTON, D.C. - John Hall kicked a 42-yard field goal as time expired as the Washington Redskins edged the New york Jets, 23-21, in a wild opening night affair at RFK Stadium on Thursday night.

hallskins.jpgThe Redskins (1-0) scored on their first two possessions and led 14-0 with five minutes left to play in the first quarter. Rock Carwright topped off the Redskins opening drive with a 6-yard run and after the Washington defense stooped the jets three-and-out on their opening drive, the redskins capped off their second possession with a 10-yard strike from Patrick Ramsey to Rod Gardner. Ramsey threw for 249 yards, completing 20-of-32 passes despite a cold stretch for the better part of the second half.

Hall, who missed  54-yard field goal in the second quarter and a 20-yard chip shot in the third quarter, drilled a 45-yard field goal with 45 seconds left in the first half for a 17-0 Washington halftime advantage. 

The second half saw the Jets offense kick into high gear as Curtis Martin, who was limited to just 30 yards in the first half, carried the Jets in their first drive of the second half. New York got on the board with seven minutes left in the third quarter when Chad Pennington (16-for-23, 206) hit Curtis Conway on a 7-yard pass.

New York would not score again until the 7:15 mark of the fourth quarter when Martin dashed in from three yards out to make the score 17-14. It was the Redskins next drive that kept the Jets hopes alive. Washington drove to the New York 21-yard line where the drive was stalled, but Hall connected on a 38-yard field goal to push the Redskins lead to 20-14 with 4:15 left.

New York seemed to stall on the following possession as Pennington tossed a pair of first down completions before facing a third-and-10 at their own 41-yard line. Pennington targeted Santana Moss who raced across the middle, snaring the bullet pass and raced 59-yards for the score and a 21-20 Jets lead with 2:45 left to play.

Ramsey began the final drive at the Washiongton 31-yard line and methodically passed through the Jets defense. With less than a minute remaining, Ramsey was forced out of the pocket and eluded Jets linebacker Marvin Jones near the 35-yard line and was able to gain four yards, setting up the game-winning field goal.

Great start to the season!  Great game.  As an Eagles fan, I have to say too bad the Skins pulled this one out.


Baseball ... this field, this game ... It is part of our past.  It reminds us all of what once was good -- and could be again.

Packers Stomp Vikings in Opener

GREEN BAY, Wisconsin - Ahman Green ran for 149 yards as the Green Bay Packers dominated the Minnesota Vikings, 41-3, in the opener for both teams on Sunday afternoon at Lambeau Field.

green packers.jpgAfter a Ryan Longwell 23-yard field goal gave Green Bay (1-0) a 3-0 lead with 4:15 left in the opening quarter, Packers defensive back Al Harris set the tone for the rest of the afternoon as he picked off Dante Culpepper's pass and raced 69 yards to give the Packers a, 10-0, lead with 1:15 left in the first quarter.

Culpepper had a tough afternoon as he was sacked four times and was under constant pressure throughout the afternoon. Culpepper was 14-for-26 for 206 yards against the stingy Packers defense which held Randy Moss to just six catches for 80-yards and nothing over 18 yards.

Aaron Elling momentarily brought the Vikings (0-1) back with a 38-yard field goal with 2:15 left in the half and it appeared like the Minnesota would stay close headed into halftime. However, the Vikings hopes ended quickly when Brett Favre hit Robert Ferguson with a 15-yard pass to the Minnesota 16-yard line with just under a minute left in the second quarter.

A personal foul after the catch pushed the ball to the 1-yard line and what should have been a field goal and a potential 13-3 lead was turned into a game changing 1-yard run by Green that gave the Packers a 17-3 lead at the half.

Green Bay continued its domination with a 21-point third quarter on a pair of 14-yard touchdown runs by Najeh Davenport and Green while adding an 11-yard run by reserve running back Tony Fisher to up the lead to 38-3 after three quarters. Elling added a 28-yard field goal with 4:45 left in the game to finish out the scoring.

Rams leading Giants After First Quarter

EAST RUTHERFORD, New Jersey - The St. Louis Rams lead the New York Giants 14-0 after the first quarter on the heels of a pair of two touchdown runs by Marshall Faulk in the season opener at the Meadowlands.

The Rams got on the board first after their special teams blocked a Giants punt and recovered at the New York four-yard line. Faulk scooted through the Giants line on the first play after the block and led 7-0 just five minutes into the game. St. Louis added to its lead when they stopped New York on its next possession and then marched quickly into New York territory, scoring on a 23-yard dash by Faulk on the final play of the quarter.

Faulk has 34-yards rushing in the opening quarter while quarterback Mark Bulger completed eight of nine passes for 77 yards.

Road Rams Rout Giants in Opener

EAST RUTHERFORD, New Jersey - Marshall Faulk scored a pair of first quarter touchdowns and Matt Bulger threw a pair of second half touchdown passes as the St. Louis Rams shutout the New York Giants, 28-0, in the season opener at Giants Stadium at the Meadowlands Sports Complex.

The Rams (1-0) got on the board first after their special teams blocked a Giants punt and recovered at the New York four-yard line. Faulk scooted through the Giants line on the first play after the blocked punt and led, 7-0, just five minutes into the game. 

St. Louis added to its lead when they stopped New York on its next possession, and then marched quickly into New York territory, scoring on a 23-yard dash by Faulk on the final play of the quarter.

The Giants (0-1) looked to make it a game as they took the opening drive of the second half and drove to the Rams three-yard line. After breaking off a 14-yard run to give New York the ball inside the Rams five yard line, Tiki Barber fumbled at the 3-yard line.

The Rams ensuing drive resulted in a 10-yard scoring strike from Bulger to Dane Looker to give the Rams a 21-0 lead. St. Louis added another score on the first play of the fourth quarter when Bulger (1f-23-198) connected with Torry Holt on a 22-yard pass for a 28-0 lead. Holt had a game high 78 yards receiving on five catches.

The Rams defense held the Giants to just 154 yards of offense, including limiting Barber to 52-yards rushing on 12 carries, including five carries of 1-yard or less. St. Louis held the Giants to eight carries of two or fewer years and sacked New York quarterback Kerry Collins four times.

Brady, Pats Stop Bills

ORCHARD PARK, New York - Tom Brady threw four touchdown passes as the New England Patriots scored 28 first half points en route to a 28-17 win over the Buffalo Bills in the season opener at Rich Stadium.

nfl_u_brady_300.jpgBrady completed just 15 of 28 passes while throwing for 218 yards in the game. Brady connected with four different receivers on his four touchdown passes.

After exchanging punts, New England got on the board first when Brady connected on a 9-yard strike to Christain Fauria midway through the first quarter. The catch was the lone grab of the afternoon for Fauria.

The second quarter saw the Patriots offense kicked into high gear when Brady threw three touchdown passes. A 44-yard bomb to David Givens gave the Patriots a 14-0 lead. However,  less than three minutes later Buffalo's Drew Bledsoe Brady found running back Travis Henry with a low, hard 9-yard rocket to cut the Patriots lead in half.

Buffalo would get no closer as Brady struck for a pair of touchdown passes in 1:15 seconds. A 22-yard pass to Deion Branch with 2:00 minutes left in the half was followed by a Bills fumble and a 9-yard pass to daniel graham for a 28-7 lead.

Buffalo added a field goal as time expired in the first half and then scored on their first possession of the second half as Bledsoe connected with Eric Moulds on a 21-yard strike to make the score 28-17. But, New England's defense clamped down as they held Bledsoe to 1f-38 passing while also limiting Henry to just 27 yards on 13 carries.

Oh my, what a game ... Brady v Bledsoe!  A couple of years after Brady replaced Bledsoe, but it probably added a little fuel to the pre-game discussion.

Chiefs Turnover Chargers

KANSAS CITY, Missouri - The Kansas City Chiefs defense caused five turnovers resulting in 24 points as they dominated the San Diego Chargers, 41-5, in the season opener at Arrowhead Stadium.

nfl_g_dhall1_200.jpgAfter exchanging first quarter field goals, the Chiefs (1-0) took control quickly in the second quarter. Kansas City used a 10-play, 71-yard drive to take a 10-3 lead. Running back Priest Holmes grabbed a Trent Green pass out of the backfield and eluded a trio of would-be Chargers defenders before leaping into the end zone.

Tim Dwight fumbled the ensuing kickoff and the Chiefs scored quickly as Green hit Eddie Kennison with a 7-yard strike for a 17-3 lead and their second touchdown in three minutes. Dexter McCleon intercepted Drew Brees and five plays later Holmes ran in from 1-yard out and the rout was on for the hometown Chiefs.

Dante Hall provided the highlight of the game as the nimble punt returner scooped up a San Diego punt at the 2-yard line and scampered 98 yards midway through the third quarter to put the game out of reach. Hall had 153 yards in punt return yards.

Kansas City intercepted three San Diego passes, Brees twice and Doug Flutie once while also causing two fumbles.

Jags Nip Panthers in Wild Opener

CHARLOTTE, North Carolina - In a game that saw six lead changes, two ties, 17 penalties and numerous personal fouls, the Jacksonville Jaguars scored with less than a minute to play to edge the Carolina Panthers 27-23 on Opening Day.

Byron_Leftwich_Jaguars_2005.jpgThe roughness of the day began on the Jaguars first drive when the Panthers were flagged for a pair of personal foul penalties. The first coming on the first play of the game and the second of which led to the Jaguars first score of the game, a 24-yard pass from Byron Leftwich to Kevin Johnson.

After exchanging field goals, Rod Smart then ignited the crowd with an 88-yard kickoff return to tie the game and briefly swing the momentum Carolina's way. On the following possession, the Panthers took their first lead of the season on a 49-yard field goal by Kasey. After a pair of punts, Jacksonville drove to the Carolina 16-yard line before fred Taylor fumbled, momentarily thwarting the Jaguars.

The Jaguars (1-0) seemed to shot themselves in the foot as a pair of holding penalties interupted their final drive of the half and set up a final play of the first half from the Carolina 42-yard line. After an up-and-down first half, Leftwich lofted a pass into the corner of the end zone where Jimmy Smith wrestled a pair of Carolina defenders for the catch and a 17-13 halftime lead.

That play set the tone for an even wilder second half. DeShaun Foster scored on a 1-yard run midway through the third quarter to give the Panthers back the lead. Jacksonville drove deep into Carolina territory, but a third down pass by Leftwich was intercepted by Mike Minter in the end zone stalling another Jaguar drive.

The Jags tied the game on a 42-yard Marler field goal early in the fourth quarter before Carolina raced right back to answer on the next possession when Kasey connected on a 37-yard field goal for a 23-20 Panthers lead with 7:30 remaining. Both teams went three-and-out on their next possessions as the clocked ran under four minutes.

Leftwich, who had been inconsistant all afternoon, rallied the Jaguars with an 8-play, 51-yard scoring drive. The powerful quarterback converted on a third-and-one quarterback sneak to keep the drive alive and then connected on three consecutive passes to drive the ball to the Carolina 8-yard line with 1:30 left.

Fred Taylor, who finished with 97 yards on 24 carries, burst throw the line for six yards and then capped the scoring with a two-yard run with 45 seconds left.

Second Half Rally Lifts Texans

MIAMI - The Houston Texans rallied for 24 unanswered points in the second half as they defeated the Miami Dolphins, 27-7, in the opening game of the 2003 season at Joe Robbie Stadium.

carr.jpgKris Brown gave the Texans an early lead as he nailed a 51-yard field goal on the Texans opening drive. Ricky Williams helped the Dolphins storm back as he led a 13-play, 71-yard drive. Williams, who ended the day with 122 yards on 24 carries, rushed eight times for 36 yards during the drive.

Miami (0-1) missed a field goal later in the half, but led 7-3 at the intermission while it looked like they would be able to keep control of the game with a dominating rushing attack. 

Houston (1-0), however, took the second half kickoff and drove 80-yards on seven plays as quarterback David Carr completed four straight passes for 53 yards before Domanick Davis (18-91) capped the scoring drive with a 24-yard jaunt against the stingy Dolphins run defense.

Williams fumbled at the Texans 48 on Miami's next possession and Carr responded again with a 52-yard drive, capped off by a 19-yard, third down scramble for a touchdown and a 17-7 Houston lead. Miami would not b able to counter as Olindo Mare hooked a 43-yard field goal attempt. The Dolphins would not be able to cross midfield on their final three possessions.

Steelers Hold Off Ravens

PITTSBURGH, Penn. - The Pittsburgh Steelers overcame an injury to Tommy Maddox in the first quarter and defeated the Baltimore Ravens, 20-12, on Opening Day at Three Rivers Stadium.

steelersravens.jpgIn a hard fought, defensive affair, the Steelers (1-0) scored on its first possession with a 49-yard field goal by Jeff Reed. Baltimore got on the board when they blocked a Josh Miller punt in the end zone for a safety.

Reed connected on a 25-yard field goal early in the second quarter to briefly regain the lead. Baltimore recaptured the lead on the following possession when running back Jamaal Lewis raced 61-yards off tackle for a 9-6 Ravens lead. Lewis ripped through the Steelers defense for 110 yards on 18 carries despite being held to zero or negative yards on nine carries.

Ike Taylor then took the kickoff 53-yards, setting up the Steelers scoring drive. Pittsburgh drove 39-yards in eight plays to take a, 13-9, lead on an 8-yard pass from Charlie Batch to Plaxico Burruss. Batch who replaced Maddox after the Steelers first possession of the game, passed for a 127 yards despite completing just 12 of 26 passes.

Matt Stover brought the Ravens to within a point on a 31-yard field goal on the last play of the quarter. Pittsburgh used its defense to put a stranglehold on the Ravens when Jason Gildon sacked Kyle Boller on third down at the Ravens 4-yard line. Dave Zastufil shanked the punt for 26 yards to the Baltimore 30-yard line where the Steelers capitalized.

Pittsburgh used seven plays to go 30 yards, twice converting on crucial third down plays. Batch connected with Antwaan Randle-El for 11-yards and Bettis for 10 yards before Bettis dashed in for a 9-yard touchdown run and a 20-12 lead with 6:30 left in the game. Boller completed four consecutive passes on the ensuing series and drove the Ravens down to the Steelers 16-yard line before Lewis fumbled.

After a Steelers punt, Boller was intercepted on his first pass and just two plays later Bettis fumbled to give the Ravens the ball back with 1:15 left. However, again on his first pass, Boller was intercepted by Mike Logan.
