Welcome to a new season here at The MMQB. We are trying things a little differently with Albert Breer’s Monday morning column, publishing items as separate stories throughout the morning. Below are links to everything Albert wrote overnight off of Week 1, plus more from our staff.
The NFL Is Back … in a Wild Way
The new season roared back into our lives over 42 frantic minutes at the end of the early-game window. Albert Breer spoke to Steelers kicker Chris Boswell about the most dramatic game of the day and the difference between a “good ball” and an “edged ball.”
Saints Find a Way to Win
Are the Saints lurking? Albert Breer spoke to new coach Dennis Allen about Jameis Winson’s monster fourth quarter that keyed a gut-check 16-point comeback win over the Falcons.
Albert Breer’s notes and observations from around the league, including a conversation with Ron Rivera and Carson Wentz about passing a big test in Week 1; a chat with Saquon Barkley about his big day, a surprising quote from Bill Belichick, our Best of the Internet and much more.
Six From Saturday
Albert Breer’s weekly thoughts on this weekend’s college action, geared mostly toward what should be of interest to NFL fans. This week: Notes on Will Andersons impact game against Texas, and why he is likely to be the top non-QB drafted. Plus, the environment for Quinn Ewers in Austin and an interesting effect of the transfer portal on mid-majors.
