  1. Whew... close one. We all nearly fell 0-1 to start the season. That would have looked great!

  2. Still, it was strange how this game unfolded. One of the most reliable kickers of the past few years misses a chip shot field goal which probably cost them the game, and one of the NFL’s most reliable receivers fumbled the ball at the end of the game. Pittsburgh wins the game, but loses their best player for at least 3-6 weeks. It’s going to be another interesting and surprising season.
