From Alex Smith's wild night in the Kansas City Chiefs' surprise upset of the defending Super Bowl champion New England Patriots, to the Los Angeles Rams' full-on throttling of the Indianapolis Colts, to the Jacksonville Jaguars' 10-sack frenzy in a domination of the Houston Texans, the first week of the NFL season did not lack for theatrics.
What's been the best performance so far? What's been the biggest surprise? And of the many rookies with solid debuts, who stood out the most?
Week 1 concludes Monday night with a Monday Night Football two-fer on ESPN, with the Minnesota Vikings hosting the New Orleans Saints at 7:10 p.m. ET, followed by the Denver Broncos hosting the Los Angeles Chargers at 10:20 p.m. ET.
