Cleveland win in overtime beating Baltimore 12-9. Their kicker Joseph redeems himself by  "kicking "  a field goal having earlier missed an extra point.

In other results Carolina defeat Giants with late field goal. Bengals defeat Miami. Lions defeat Green Bay, Jets easily beat Broncos and Kansas City thrash Jacksonville Bills defeated Titans with late field goal. in the early game blow-out Steelers downed Falcons 41-17. I believe the Superbowl is in Atlanta. I can safely say even at this early stage the Falcons will not be there.

Didn't give the Carolina kicker Cano the credit he deserves in my recap.He won the game with a kick from way downtown 63 yards in fact in the last second.

A monster. 

Still not sure what the Panthers are, but the G Men are pish.

A lot of this week’s season previews focus on the changing ‘when not if’ attitude surrounding a London franchise.

Convincing the players sounds like it is one of the remaining obstacles.

Certainly the fan base, the political will and the facilities are there.

Highlights of the early games. Chargers defeat  Titans 20-19 In a long awaited Wembley  thriller. Game could have gone to overtime but after Titans touchdown in the dying seconds they  decided not to kick the extra point and failed with two point conversion. Trailing 17-0 to the Eagles going into the 4th quarter. Cam Newton inspired the Panthers to 21 unanswered points. Patriots win again  but their defence is conceeding far to many points per game. Wins also for Vikings, Lions  and Coltsagainst AFC East  Jets, Dolphins. Bills. Sadly, more heartbreak for Cleveland. For the fourth time this season their game went to overtime. that hey lost to a 59 yard field goal.

In the late games the unbeaten Rams are all over the 49er"s 22-0. Washington and Dallas are tied and Ravens lead Saints

Mahomes then.... in good nick at the mo

Yes, having an incredible start to his rookie season.

With defences trying to contain the passing game, the Chiefs running back is flourishing now as well.

They’ve got a couple of easier games coming up as well after a few tough ones.

Four Jacksonville players arrested after attempting  to leave Piccadilly nightclub without paying the bill in the early hours of Saturday morning. Sky News reports s the unpaid bill was £50,000!. The four players all in their twenties were un-named.

All released without charge apparently, the bill has been paid and the Jags say the matter will be dealt with internally.

Not good publicity though!

The way the QB is playing I'd name him, £50k is a hell of a publicity smoother though, & why were they still up at 3am(ish) on a game night, drinking? Even with time difference, & clocks going back, they should be disciplined.

The four players were named on the CBS site. I will not mention their names nor will I mention the names of a few others who any given Sunday ply their trade. Let's just say their off-field behaviour makes Wigans  full back look like a choirboy.

Veteran Adrian Peterson strikes again with another game winning performance for the Redskins today against the G-men.

It evokes more memories of former Redskin running back John Riggins and ‘Riggonomics’ whereby he aged like a fine wine and was the catalyst for the Redskins dynasty in the 1980’s.

Elsewhere Green Bay have started well in a stern test for the unbeaten LA Rams.

John Riggins,  there is a programme about him on Sky from time to time one of those NFL films. A very interesting life.

In the early games Mahomes throws for another 4 tds in the Chiefs victory over the Broncos. Most impressive victory for me Carolina over the Ravens.

Yep, Riggins story is a colourful one and to think he once hitchhiked to a Redskins-Cowboys NFC Championship game after missing the team bus!

It’s a decent Ravens defence by all accounts, but it could not contain Cam Newton.

Shaping up to be another great season with lots of stories, none more so than Mahomes incredible run of form.

The power of NFL. https://www.bbc.co.uk/sport/football/45936130

Can you imagine the reaction if it had been a rugby league game that had cut up the pitch?

In defence of the NFL, there was never meant to be a football game the day after, Tottenham's inability to finish their stadium on time is the issue.  


With the best, thats a good bit of PR, though I would say the Bedford team, theres, like, you know, 13 blokes who can get together at the weekend to have a game together, which doesnt point to expansion of the game. Point, yeah go on!

It was coming. With McVay, Shannaghan (sp) etc setting the trend for new offensively minded coaches, it was inevitable that Mayfield would be given something similar.
