Week 1 overreactions and reality checks: Tua Tagovailoa MVP? 49ers best team in NFC? Browns rule AFC North?

The finest week in the NFL is the opening week. Good groups aren’t in midseason kind and bad groups do not understand they’re bad, an exceptional mix of leaping to conclusions around the league. The NFL constantly has weekly overreactions to efficiencies, however Week 1 is the king of overreacting to a video game or private efficiency. 

Of course, this is what makes the NFL fantastic. These are the very best responses from a couple of video games in the opening week of the year after the Sunday slate of video games, and whether these stories are overreactions or truth. 

Tua Tagovailoa is the early front-runner for MVP

Overreaction or truth: Reality

When Tua Tagovailoa is healthy, the Dolphins offense is a juggernaut. Tagovailoa was dominant tossing the football in the Dolphins’ awesome 36-34 win over the Chargers, finishing 28 of 45 passes for 466 lawns with 3 goals and an interception for a 110.0 ranking. Tagovailoa even had the game-winning goal pass to Tyreek Hill with 1:45 delegated put Miami ahead for excellent, leading the Dolphins to a resurgence triumph. 

Of course it’s just Week 1, however Tagovailoa leads the NFL in passing lawns, lawns per effort, and is connected for the league lead in passing goals. The Dolphins are a Super Bowl competitor in the AFC if Tagovailoa is healthy. 

If Tagovailoa plays all 17 video games with this offense, he’ll remain in the MVP mix. 

Tyreek Hill is going to get 2,000 getting lawns this season

Overrearction or truth: Reality

Tyreek Hill was his normal dominant self versus the Chargers, capturing 11 passes for 215 lawns and 2 goals in the win (his 3rd video game with 200 getting lawns and 2 goals). Hill is on rate for 3,655 lawns this season (it’s Week 1), however he just requires to typical 11.6 lawns per video game to get to 2,000 thanks to his torrid start.

The objective was to get to 2,000 lawns for Hill, who had 1,710 getting lawns in 2015. If Tagovailoa is healthy all season, Hill will reach the turning point he desires. 

Overreaction or truth: Overreaction

This is another “if he stays healthy” circumstance, however Christian McCaffrey was dominant in the 49ers’ opener Sunday — similar to his group. McCaffrey had 22 brings for 152 lawns and a goal in the 49ers’ 30-7 triumph over the Steelers, ending up with a remarkable 6.9-yards-per-carry average. 

The driver behind the 49ers hurrying attack, McCaffrey had a complete offseason in Kyle Shanahan’s zone-run plan after a remarkable half-season in 2015. If McCaffrey is healthy for all 17 video games, there’s an exceptional possibility he might promote 1,700 hurrying lawns with all the pass catchers around him. 

McCaffrey never ever had more than 1,387 hurrying lawns in a season, however he’s never ever been running in the plan that benefits his ability. He might be in for a big year with the 49ers. 

The 49ers are the very best group in the NFC

Overreaction or truth: Overreaction

What a remarkable efficiency by the 49ers in the win over the Steelers. San Francisco outplayed Pittsburgh in every element, outgaining the Steelers 391-239, while holding them to 7 points and 3.9 lawns per play. The 49ers leapt out to a 20-0 lead and never ever enabled the Steelers to return in it. 

Is San Francisco the very best group in the NFC after a remarkable win on the roadway (on the East Coast no less). The Eagles looked spotty and hung on to beat the Patriots on a rainy day in Foxborough while the Cowboys burnt out the Giants 40-0, bending their muscle versus a group they usually control. 

The 49ers are the greatest hazard to the Eagles in the NFC to get to the Super Bowl, however a couple of more video games require to be played out prior to figuring out that a person. They are among the 5 finest groups in the NFL and have the prospective to be even much better. 

Puka Nacua will win Offensive Rookie of the Year

Overreaction or truth: Overreaction

What a start for Puka Nacua, ending up with 10 catches for 119 lawns to lead the Rams in getting (in his launching no less). The Rams required somebody to step up with Cooper Kupp out and Nucua provided, having the second-most catches in the NFL through the Week 1 Sunday slate of video games. 

Can Nucua win Offensive Rookie of the Year? Kupp will come back at some point, which will take some targets away. Bijan Robinson likewise runs in the Falcons offense and Anthony Richardson likewise had a strong very first 3 quarters in his launching (and will just get more playing time and experience). Jordan Addison likewise captured a goal in his launching. 

Nucua is an enjoyable surprise in his novice class, however prematurely to have him as the novice of the year after one week. He does have the makings of a great wideout in this league. 

Overrearction or truth: Reality

First off, Jordan Love beat the Bears — which is something Aaron Rodgers constantly did. Then, Love goes 15 of 27 for 245 lawns and 3 goals without any interceptions in the very first video game of the post-Rodgers period (with a 123.2 ranking). Love finished a pass to 6 various receivers and was strong on 3rd down and at a loss zone. Love finished 7 of 9 hand down 3rd down for 106 lawns and a goal while going 2 of 4 at a loss zone for 2 goals — both to Romeo Doubs. 

Love balanced 9.1 lawns per effort, extending the field and making Packers fans feel excellent about the future at quarterback. Like Rodgers remained in the post-Favre period, the Packers seem in excellent hands with Love. 

The Titans need to make a modification at quarterback

Overreaction or truth:  Overreaction

Ryan Tannehill was awful versus the Saints, going 16 of 34 for 198 lawns and 3 interceptions for a passer ranking of 28.8. The Titans scored simply 15 points and had no offending goals, while balancing 4.9 lawns per effort. Tannehill was bad on Sunday, however should Tennessee make a quarterback modification with him remaining in the last year of his agreement?

The unfortunate fact is — Malik Willis is even worse and Will Levis is an unverified novice. The Titans have nobody presently much better than Tannehill — and most likely will not for the entire year. If Tannehill looks after the football, Tennessee is 1-0 as the Saints scored 10 points off turnovers (2 of his interceptions). 

Tannehill isn’t getting benched at any time quickly. 

Browns are the very best group in the AFC North

Overreaction or truth: Overreaction 

The Browns are much better than numerous believe, and they appear to have the Bengals’ number (as evidenced by the number of times Joe Burrow as lost to them). Cleveland has a skilled lineup and Jim Schwartz might be the response for their defense, as they held Burrow to 14 of 31 for 82 lawns and a 52.2 ranking — while the Bengals had 142 lawns of offense and simply 3 points. 

The offense still requires some work, as Deshaun Watson went simply 16 of 29 for 154 lawns with a goal and an interception. The Browns did have 350 lawns of offense in the win and regulated time of ownership. 

While the win was outstanding versus a Super Bowl competitor, the department is still filled and the AFC North is going to alter week to week. The Browns are definitely in the mix, revealing the Bengals they will be an issue in 2023. 

The Giants will end up in last location in the NFC East 

Overrearction or truth: Reality

New York looked definitely awful in the blowout loss to Dallas, as one group appeared like a Super Bowl competitor while the other didn’t belong in the discussion amongst the NFC’s finest. Sure the Giants made the divisional round of the playoffs in 2015, however they had numerous defects in an offense brought by Saquon Barkley they didn’t appear to remedy. 

Daniel Jones began 7 of 15 for 50 lawns and 2 interceptions, plainly revealing his receivers aren’t any much better than in 2015. New York began with 22 lawns on its very first 5 belongings, with an obstructed basket and an interception return for a goal in the very first quarter alone. This is a group that is expected to take on the Eagles and Cowboys in the NFC East? 

The Giants can’t beat the Cowboys nor Eagles. They may not have the ability to beat the Commanders, who have actually enhanced. Could be a disappointing season in New York.
