49ers, Cowboys, Redskins, Jets start well
Question of the Day
The Jets expected to have a stingy defense, but it was the offense that grabbed the headlines _ for the right reasons this time _ by putting up 34 of the 48 points they scored against Buffalo. This from an attack that didn’t get a touchdown from the regulars in the preseason.
Of all the Week 1 wins, this might have the shortest range of impact with Pittsburgh and San Francisco upcoming for the Jets. But it also shows the need for patience in New York, as unlikely as that is, and it highlights the lack of significance the preseason carries.
Most noteworthy was how the Jets’ inconsistent offensive line made $100 million man Mario Williams disappear in his Buffalo debut.
Finally, Peyton Manning’s first real game as a Bronco was revealing for its connection to the past. The folks in Denver pretty much got what they wanted by witnessing something close to vintage Manning _ and this was only the beginning of his second career.
He was in control, he didn’t appear limited by any issues with his surgically repaired neck. More of the same very well could be ahead for Manning and his new team.
“What can you say?” Steelers safety Troy Polamalu said. “I mean, he’s Peyton Manning. He’s the same Manning. Everything anybody has ever said about him is probably the same thing I would say tonight.”
