As we finish up Week 1 of the NFL regular season, here are the best plays we’ve seen so far.
There remain three games left to play in Week 1 of the NFL regular season, but we’ve already seen some incredible plays.
Here are 10 of the best highlights from all the action this weekend.
10. Tyreek Hill is off to the races
Newsflash: Tyreek Hill isn’t human.
There were questions over whether Hill could take over the No. 1 receiver spot for the Chiefs this season and he put those to rest on Thursday night. In a dominating 42-27 win over the New England Patriots, Hill made the play of the night on this wide open touchdown catch.
Off of the blown coverage by Stephon Gilmore, Hill was off to the races. Not only did he make Gilmore look silly, he chucked up the deuces as he trotted into the end zone. The disrespect is real, but you’ve got to love the cocky gesture nonetheless.
The defending champs had no answer for the Chiefs offense as they were dominated in all facets.
9. C.J. Mosley makes the leaping interception
The Baltimore Ravens defense seems to be as good as advertised. They were all over the field in their win against the Bengals, getting to Bengals quarterback Andy Dalton all game long. Dalton threw not one, not two, but three interceptions in the first-half. His second of the game came thanks to a leaping interception by C.J. Mosley.
As the Bengals were on the verge of a scoring drive, Dalton found a target in the end zone. The problem? That target was Mosley. He read the Dalton pass perfectly and made the leaping interception. The two-time Pro Bowler is proving to be one of the best young pass cover linebackers in the league. The Ravens certainly have to be excited about that.
It was one of the five turnovers the Ravens forced en route to a 20-0 shutout.
