Ryan Tannehill Struggles

First-round pick Ryan Tannehill had a rough rookie debut, throwing three interceptions in Miami's loss. His final statline: an unimpressive 20-36 for 219 yards and zero touchdown passes. Better luck next week, rookie.

Arian Foster Is Really Good

Entering the regular season, the Texans were hoping to reduce Arian Foster's carries to preserve him for a possible playoff run. Through Week 1, that doesn't seem to be the case. He finished the day with 79 yards on 26 carries, with two touchdowns in the process. One of those scores is below for your viewing pleasure.
