The Mondays: Bye-Bye Brady?

Happy week 1 of the NFL season. I am proud to bring back the greatest spectacle here at Oh No Romo, the Mondays.

New England Patriots 17 - Kansas City Chiefs 10- The Pats held on to win their 17th straight regular season game, but it came at a strong price. Reports are out that Patriots quarterback Tom Brady is out for the season after tearing his ACL.

This is a disastrous injury no matter which team you play for. Brady has been the face of this franchise for seven years now. The Patriots will be playing without him for the first time in a long time. The pressure is now on Matt Cassel.

He goes from being back up to #1 on the depth chart. Cassel played well Sunday in his time off the bench. Cassel completed 13-of-18 for 152 yards and one touchdown. Cassel managed the game well and showed a lot of composure despite getting hit hard a couple of times. It will be interesting to see how Cassel does in the next couple of weeks. It will also be interesting to see if the Patriots add another quarterback

Atlanta Falcons 34 - Detroit Lions 21- A big congratulations goes out to Matt Ryan for winning his first game as an NFL quarterback. The big story of the day goes to running back Michael Turner. The former San Diego running back had over 200 yards today with two touchdowns. Matt Ryan also threw his first career touchdown pass when he completed a 62-yarder to Michael Jenkins. The Falcons could be 2-0 if they go through Tampa next week.

Buffalo Bills 34 - Seattle Seahawks 10- I raise my hand because yes, I admit, I saw this loss for the Seahawks coming. I'm not saying the Seahawks are bad, that's only on the road and when they travel across the country. No matter, this is a big win for the Bills. Roscoe Parrish rocked Buffalo when he returned a punt for 63 yards in the second quarter to score a touchdown.

Baltimore Ravens 17 - Cincinnati Bengals 10- How about that Joe Flacco kid? The rookie from Delaware ran for a 38 yard touchdown.

I Believe in Kenny Watson Watch: Watson ran for 13 yards on two carries.

Oh No Romo Alert: Despite a little sweet chin music, Romo threw for 320 yards and one touchdown. The Cowboys won.

Sunday Night Recap: Chicago Bears 29 - Indianapolis Colts 13- It was the Matt Forte show that came on air at Lucas Oil Stadium. Forte ran for 123 yards and one touchdown. Peyton Manning in his return to the field threw for one touchdown and 257 yards. The running game for the Colts never took off. The Colts ran for a combined 53 yards.
