    Fournette looks legit already. Impressive start.

    Big Ben intercepted. They're not going to win but Cleveland are definitely hanging in this. Overall with the exception of KC, Ravens (although how much of that is contributed by Cincy) and the Jags it has been a big struggle for many teams this opening week.

    Great to see my Oakland Raiders beating a good Titans team, could see us grabbing the 1 or 2 seed in the AFC this year #GoRaiders

    Dalton just threw a ball away on 4th & 5 at 20-0 down. He threw it away....intentionally. On 4th & 5. Losing 20-0.

    4 INTs for Dalton. Shutout.

    An offense with Mixon, Bernard, Eifert, Lafell, Boyd and AJ fucking Green. HOW?! Dalton might as well just close his eyes and chuck the ball deep to AJ every play and hope he bails him out just like he has his entire career.

    That's a dreadful call in the Redskins game, the very definition of the 'arm coming forward'

    When are the Rams going back to yellow and blue? Doesn't look right in white. Also, why so many empty seats in LA?

    Just noticed that with the crowd, very sparse. I'd have thought now they were free of Fisher-ball they would get them coming back but obviously not. I guess though LA has never been a mad passionate sports town, more the sort where they will jump on the bandwagon if they start winning.

    Nice start Tolzein. Indy deserve this for not building a line that can protect Luck. Criminal what they have done with his career.

    Can't just move a franchise and expect fans to turn up on mass. Besides, far too much competition for the entertainment dollars in LA for people to spend their money on a poor team.

    USC got 77k last night. If you want a football fix in LA, you'll go to their games, not the Rams. Got to be embarrassing when a college team outstrips your support in the same stadium though.

    Seattle are such an ill disciplined team at times. Should have been a simple pick 6 but instead commit two fouls one resulting in TD being chalked off and the other getting someone ejected. Shame as their Defence is incredible otherwise.

    Edit - although on replay with the ejection looks like some guesswork from the officials to put it kindly.

    But there's still a lot of Rams fans in California from their first stint. I remember when they played the Chargers in San Diego 2 years ago when they had nearly half the fans there.

    I look forward to LA shunning the Chargers.

    With Indy looking such a sorry sight ordinarily I'd say get Brissett in there however I like him and he does not deserve to have to suffer behind those turnstiles on the O-Line.

    Speaking of awful O-Lines Seattles is going to knock years off Russell Wilsons career at this rate. It's only his brilliance avoiding the rush which has protected him to some degree.

    Massive win. Still a lot for Watson to work on but lots to like too. Rolling him out was successful in preseason and last week, but with only one TE available from the practice squad the opportunities to do so were limited Thursday.

    Defence looking stretched already with Johnson out for a few weeks too.

    I'm in full on 'blow it up' mode with this team. I celebrate a Dalton INT more than I would a TD. There's just no point with this lot until Lewis and Dalton go - good enough defense, plenty of offensive playmakers but inept leadership, coaching, culture and quarterback play.

    Where - if anywhere - do you folks go for simple match reports? The NFL site is all stats and drive summaries and 5-point what we learnt lists. I want summat like the football match reports you get on the BBC but for NFL games. Just a written summary of the game.

    I know I could look around the major sites but personal recommendations would (a) save me doing that and (b) make you feel good by helping a brother out. Cheers.

    Think i would stick with Dalton Kaepernick is certainly no improvement on Dalton and honestly I think the Bengals needs to sort out there O line if that happens I think Dalton is servicable and then look at the Draft next year

    Kaepernick's better than Dalton. If a QB needs a ton of weapons and a good o-line in order to be serviceable then they're not good enough.

    I think any difference is marginal between Dalton and Kaepernick will Kaepernick add anymore wins than Dalton the answer is a definate no and i doubt any QB is going to do anything with a bad O line apart from get sacked a lot.
