My golden rule for Week 1 in anything – especially when it comes to football is – TRY NOT OVERREACT! Like thinking Baltimore’s offense led by Lamar Jackson is the second coming of Patrick Mahomes and Kansas City. Not happening…yes, the Dolphins are just THAT bad on defense. Or that the Browns are the same old team we’re used to. Also not true despite a 43-13 home thrashing at the hands of Tennessee.
Based on my preseason expectations, I’ll rank each team in one of three categories after one week:
-They Are Who I Thought They Were (GOOD, BAD, or MEDIOCRE)
-I Might’ve Been Way Off (BETTER or WORSE)
-I Have No Clue
It’s a fun exercise…and one I’m sure I’ll revisit multiple times throughout the season.
