Ten penalties were too many for the Bills to overcome on Sunday.

It was a happy homecoming for Dolphins WR Brian Hartline.

WR Danny Amendola showed his worth on key offensive plays in his Patriots debut.

The Jets defense put the team in position to capitalize on the Bucs’ last-minute blunder.

A look back at the Ravens’ decision to trade WR Anquan Boldin after his sparking debut for the 49ers.

Said Bengals DT Domata Peko of Sunday’s loss, “We killed ourselves. Shot ourselves in the bleeping foot.”

Browns QB Brandon Weeden got hit 16 times by Dolphins defenders.

Said Steelers coach Mike Tomlin of his team’s loss, “Enough misery to go around in all phases. Unacceptable performance. I won’t accept it. The team better not accept it.”

RB Arian Foster will be playing in front of a hometown crowd when the Texans face the Chargers on Monday night.

Colts WR Reggie Wayne is up to 65 straight games with at least three receptions.

There’s not much good to say about the Jaguars in the wake of their 2013 debut.

Winning the game made it easier for Titans KR Darius Reynaud to talk about his game-opening blunder on a kickoff that handed the Steelers two points.

Broncos CB Chris Harris says he feels stronger and faster than he did last season.

DT Dontari Poe’s no-barbeque policy seemed to work for him in the Chiefs’ blowout win to open the year.

QB Terrelle Pryor provided some silver linings to another Raiders loss.

Chargers T D.J. Fluker said he has no fear of Texans DE J.J. Watt.

Said Cowboys CB Brandon Carr of his game-sealing interception, “It was a running back screen coming my way. Just that play, I had a vision on the quarterback and by the time he was going to throw it, I put my foot in the ground and running and it just so happened the ball was tipped up and it fell into my hands and it was off to the races. You got to get to the end zone.”

The Giants defense was asked to do more than they could handle thanks to six offensive turnovers.

The Eagles haven’t said much about their plans for TE James Casey.

Five questions for the Redskins opener.

Bears QB Jay Cutler said he was proud of rookie offensive linemen Kyle Long and Jordan Mills after beating the Bengals.

RB Reggie Bush doesn’t expect the Lions to see defensive looks that benefit him as often as he did in the season opener.

Packers RB Eddie Lacy wasn’t able to make much of an impact in his regular season debut.

QB Christian Ponder’s Vikings teammates said there was more to Sunday’s loss than Ponder’s poor performance.

Falcons WR Roddy White was on the field, but his ankle left him as little more than a decoy.

The Panthers aren’t optimistic about the outlook for G Garry Williams‘ knee.

After his team lost to the Saints, Falcons coach Mike Smith said it was obvious that this wasn’t last year’s Saints defense.

Buccaneers CB Darrelle Revis was unhappy about the result of the game, but said his knee held up fine.

S Tyrann Mathieu heard praise inside and outside the Cardinals locker room for his strip of Rams TE Jared Cook.

Said Rams DE Chris Long, “I just think we’re a tough team. Today, we just beared down. We were talking on the sideline and said that if we couldn’t overcome this adversity, we’re not going to be worth much.”

49ers rookie S Eric Reid had an interception in a successful NFL debut.

The Seahawks looked for WR Doug Baldwin on third down all day long.

    Raiders actually dominated the Colts in the 2nd half and if not for a very dubious Personal Foul for a hit on DHB while he was still going fwd, the game winning drive is a question mark for the Colts. What does crow taste like? If you dont already know, you will by the end of the season.

    “Packers RB Eddie Lacy wasn’t able to make much of an impact in his regular season debut.”

    True, but he did better than Frank Gore.

    @roadbiscuit did he? Sure he gained a few more yards but Fank Gore was on the winning team, so you tell me who did better yesterday?

    It’s all about the wins!

    @9erssteve well if we are going by your logic Marcus Lattimore had a better game than Lacey….individually he did play better
