Seattle Seahawks (1-0)

#3 The running game was surprisingly atrocious (26 carries for 70 yards), but Russell Wilson was efficient through the air, and the defense made plays when it had to. (Photo by Grant Halverson/Getty Images)

#6 No Urlacher? No Smith? No problem. A solid start for Jay Cutler and Marc Trestman. (Photo by Jonathan Daniel/Getty Images)
New England Patriots (1-0)

#7 The optimist says a win is a win, the pessimist says the Patriots won’t make the playoffs and the realist says this is not a legitimate AFC contender – not right now, anyway. (Photo by Tom Szczerbowski/Getty Images)
Indianapolis Colts (1-0)

#11 You can’t turn the ball over three times and realistically hope to win – especially on the road. (Photo by Jonathan Daniel/Getty Images)
Baltimore Ravens (0-1)
Baltimore Ravens (0-1)
#12 That was arguably the worst season-opener for a defending Super Bowl champion in NFL history. Anquan Boldin probably looks awfully good right about now. (Photo by Dustin Bradford/Getty Images)
Dallas Cowboys (1-0)

St. Louis Rams (1-0)

#15 Great win for the Rams. Sam Bradford’s two new weapons – Jared Cook and Tavon Austin – combined for 13 catches, 182 yards and two touchdowns. (Photo by Michael Thomas/Getty Images)
Kansas City Chiefs (1-0)
Kansas City Chiefs (1-0)
#16 The offense was efficient, and the defense didn’t allow a point, sacking Blaine Gabbert six times. Yes, Jacksonville is awful, but it was still a good start for the Andy Reid era. (Photo by Mike Ehrmann/Getty Images)
Philadelphia Eagles (1-0)

New York Giants (0-1)

Miami Dolphins (1-0)
Miami Dolphins (1-0)
#20 The Dolphins rushed 23 times for just 20 yards, but the defense was superb. So were Brian Hartline and Caleb Sturgis. As for Mike Wallace? Get over it. (Photo by Matt Sullivan/Getty Images)
Tennessee Titans (1-0)

Minnesota Vikings (0-1)

#22 Three touchdowns by Adrian Peterson, three interceptions by Christian Ponder. We’ll probably see more of this in the future. (Photo by Gregory Shamus/Getty Images)
Pittsburgh Steelers (0-1)
Pittsburgh Steelers (0-1)
#23 Five sacks allowed and less than 200 yards of total offense. If not for a touchdown with 1:23 to go, the Steelers’ only points would have come an opening-kickoff safety that was handed to them. Translation? They looked even worse than Baltimore. (Photo by Justin K. Aller/Getty Images)
Carolina Panthers (0-1)

#31 His mistakes were costly, but Terrelle Pryor, with 112 rushing yards, should be the starter in Oakland. (Photo by Andy Lyons/Getty Images)
Jacksonville Jaguars (0-1)

#32 With 178 yards of total offense, Jacksonville is officially painful to watch. (Photo by Sam Greenwood/Getty Images)
