Top 10 Most Surprising NFL Teams of Week 1 (2020)Well we’re back again for more surprising results in 2020. This Football season will be unlike anything that we’ve experienced before. With that said despite the world going to hell WE HAVE FOOTBALL GAMES. Finally an escape we’ve desperately needed. So here we go with another year of Surprises. What teams caught us off guard on the opening kickoff week of the 2020 season?
The Top Ten
To me the biggest shocker has to have been Jacksonville who is openly trying to tank by getting rid of literally every notable person Calais Campbell, Yannick Ngakoue, Leonard Fournette, Nick Foles, AJ Bouye, and more. Despite all of that MINSHEW MANIA IS HERE TO STAY! Gardner Minshew had only ONE incompletion the entire game yes only 1. And this is with a surrounding cast made up of unknowns all around. Gardner Minshew proved himself as legit so hold the phone on Trevor Lawrence at least for now. This Jags team got probably the biggest upset of the week over a rather mediocre Colts team
I gotta give credit to them I definitely did not see this coming that Defense had 8 sacks and they rallied to come back and stun the Eagles. I thought they had no chance at this game at all. Haskins actually looked decent enough. Peyton Barber had a good game and it’s at least a nice storybook result to win in Riverboat Ron’s debut after a turmoil filled offseason now the question is can you keep things up?
Them winning had more to do with the Eagles and Carson Wentz imploding, but still, that defensive luck looks impressive.
Greatest comeback of the year hands-down.
One of the greatest halftime adjustments made by a team. Sure I'll give Ron Rivera a lot of credit on that.
The question is can they keep it up
They stun again and beat Arizona than this defense is indeed special as I suspected coming into the season.
Indy what the Hell happened? You had arguably the EASIEST game this week and you blew it. You had your running game as a strength and don’t tell me it’s because Marlon Mack went down that sucks but you completely abandon the run game? This is what happens when you put all your trust in Phillip “throws a key pick 6 late in the game to shift the momentum” Rivers. What a disappointment
I gotta be honest I did not see that coming. Aaron Rodgers proved that he’s back. We haven’t seen a performance like that in a long time. You had people skeptical after the draft I’ll include myself in that group but man they really silenced the Vikings defense and may already be in the front seat for the division this year
Vikings what was that? Sure Danielle Hunter was inactive for the game but you got Yannick Ngakoue and made all this noise about your Defense but where did it go? Yannick was silenced as Aaron Rodgers TORCHED your Defense all of a sudden you guys look vulnerable. Green Bay May end up winning this division after all
You may as well have just killed your tank and stopped the crying about Super Bowl LIV. De'Andre Hopkins may have just secured himself in the Pro Bowl.
Arizona I liked as a Dark Horse pick but I didn’t expect them to click early. Kyler Murray and DeAndre Hopkins were a dynamic duo as Arizona pulled off kind of an upset over San Francisco which caught me off guard slightly
Cleveland was given the task of stopping Lamar Jackson which went as well as you’d expect. Sure Grant Delpit was out but I expected more of a fight from Cleveland. They have the talent for Baker to take the next step and yet he fell flat. The Browns I didn’t expect to win but man did Baltimore whip them and wipe the floor with the Browns all game long. Cleveland still hasn’t won an opening game since 2004.
Well that was a sloppy win you got lucky D’Andre Swift dropped the Game Winning TD I’m more surprised at Mitchell Trubisky I don’t know what it is about Detroit but that’s seemingly the only team he can beat consistently somehow he had a 3 Touchdown game..if you’re a Bears Fan just take the Win and be happy with it
Yes the Eagles are injured badly but what was that? You have Washington which is a terrible team. Dwayne Haskins looked decent enough but the real story was the Washington defense which mounted the comeback. I thought you could have handled Washington who had Terry McLaurin and who else exactly? That’s the kind of loss that’ll bite you in the end
17-0. No other explanation needed. Start tanking now. You may as well be a joke after giving away Nelson Agholor.
Watch them comeback the 2nd half and get further away from what you want them to do.
The Lions make the list because they had a 17 point lead at one point only to collapse and blow it all away to justify Da Bears starting Mitchell Trubisky. The Lions has this game. D’Andre Swift had it! The Lions make it because they choked the lead just like last year just how? How does this happen?
How do you choke the first week twice in a row? And the exact same way? The Bears were down 17 only to come back in ONE QUARTER. ONE QUARTER PEOPLE.
It's actually been three, You forgot when they were favored against the Jets as well Patricia's first crack at it. The Arizona game was basically a loss when they tied the season would go downhill. It's already over before it even began when bum Trubisky comes back with a very ugly and sluggish offense.
Okay, I've gotta say... WHAT. THE HECK. HAPPENED?! You got torched by Kyler Murray and De'Andre Hopkins, letting Hopkins get 150 yards! Come on, 49ers defense! What happened? Cry about Super Bowl LIV all you want, but stop blaming it on that and treating it like you almost died from it. If you can't beat Arizona good luck winning the division, a first-round bye, or the PLAYOFFS for that matter. Seattle dominated against Atlanta. You need to even the score.
