INDIANAPOLIS — Week 1 is in the books, and now the focus is on week 2.
The defending NFC Champion Philadelphia Eagles defeated the Minnesota Vikings 34-28 to kick off week 2 on Thursday Night Football.
Before we get to what games will be shown in the Indianapolis market, let’s look at some key takeaways from week 1:
- All five new head coaches earned a loss in their debut with their new teams.
- San Francisco 49ers quarterback Brock Purdy made history, becoming the first quarterback in NFL history to win his first six career regular-season starts while throwing at least two touchdown passes in each start.
- Cleveland Browns ended their long drought with their first home opener since 2004. It also marked the first time since the 1993 and 1994 seasons that the Browns have won back-to-back openers. In addition, the Browns joined the Lions, Raiders, and Jaguars, starting the season with a 1-0 record for the first time in NFL history.
- The Baltimore Ravens defeated the Houston Texans last Sunday, marking the eighth time they’ve won an opener by 15 points or more under head coach John Harbaugh.
- Tyreek Hill finished with 215 receiving yards against the Chargers, marking the third-most in NFL history for a week 1 game.
- Indianapolis Colts continued to struggle in week one game, going winless in 10 straight season openers. It is now the second-longest streak since 1970, trailing the Browns, who went winless from 2005 through 2021.
