Football Night in America Live Blog Week 1 (9/13)

Welcome back my friends to the show that never ends...for seventeen weeks. Alfalfa, Bob and Cris are on The Not-So-Frozen Tundra of Lambeau Field. Keith and Dan forthcoming as well as Peter King and the unneeded additions of Rodney Harrison and Tony Dungy. In case you missed Thursday's curtain raiser, the Steelers walked off thanks to Jeff Reed's 33-yard field goal and a 13-10 overtime win over the Titans.

Saints 45, Lying Downs 17 - Drew Brees had six TDs. Jim Rome is Burninating rooting for another 0-16 season?

Jets 24, Texans 7 - This late word just in: Mark Sanchez and Rex Ryan are that good. Ask a sober Joe Willie (and he didn't want to kiss them, either!)

Ravens 38, Chiefs 24 - Rupert, was that you at the end of the highlights?

Broncos 12, Bungles 7 - Need I say more about the tip drill to those Bungles fans?

Eagles 38, Panthers 10 - McNabb injures his ribs. It looks like Jake Delhomme will not start next week from what it looks. Lateral minbleosity?

Vikings 38, Browns 20 - Brett Favre tied Jim Marshall's all time consecutive start record. He doesn't have to throw the ball as often as he did. Adrian Peterson can do that.

Colts 14, Jaguars 12 - Jags have awful new unis. No wonder they'll move to Los Angeles soon.

Falcons 19, Dolphins 7 -Sophomore jinx? What sophomore jinx for Matt Ryan?

Cowboys 34, Bucs 21 - Freed from the shackles of Jessica Simpson Yoko Romo, Tony was wonderful in the sweltering heat in Central Florida. Ask "Stone Cold" Miles Austin. WHAT?

49ers 20, Cardinals 16 - Cards still looked awful.

Seahawks 28, Rams 0 - The Lambs still look like the Lambs.

Giants 23, Redskins 17 - In the final opener at The Swamplands I, the Giants looked like contenders in the toughest division in football.

We get a quick recap on four of the games, and that's that. Enjoy Da Bears and Da Pack, and we'll see you tomorrow.

The Update: Packers won, 21-15.
