With the first Sunday of the NFL season in the books, Onion Sports presents its winners and losers from week one:

Winners

  • Bills: Buffalo proved they can go toe-to-toe with the NFL’s best for a full 57 minutes
  • Turnovers: The classic change-of-possession plays made a huge splash in their high-profile Sunday night appearance
  • Titans’ defense: Racked up an impressive eight safeties in a 16-9 victory over the Pittsburgh Steelers, who managed just three safeties and a field goal

Losers

  • Packers: They lost
  • Geno Smith: While he wasn’t spectacular, he also didn’t make any horrendous mistakes, calling into question whether he fits as the Jets’ QB
  • Jaguars: After getting routed by Kansas City, the Jaguars should remember that this was only one game, the first game, the game that revealed beyond a doubt how bad they are
