Found September 09, 2013 on This Given Sunday:
Every week in the National Football League, a lot of stupid happens. But no week is stupider than Week No. 1. Let's break down some of the stupidest things that took place on the first Sunday of the 2013 NFL season... The stupidest opening play While New York Giants quarterback Eli Manning deserves some stupid credit for his stupid interception to DeMarcus Ware on the first play from scrimmage Sunday night against the Dallas Cowboys, the first stupid moment from the first Sunday of the year belonged to Tennessee Titans return man Darius Reynaud, who took a knee on the opening kickoff against the Pittsburgh Steelers despite the fact his left foot had crossed the plane of the end zone. Boom. Safety. Stupid. Fast forward to the 20-second mark here: The stupidest team The Buffalo Bills should have upset the New England Patriots. They outplayed the Pats, but Bill Belichick's team was significantly less stupid. In a two-point home loss, Buffalo took 10 penalties for a...

Eli Manning throws interception on first play of NY Giants season (GIF)

New York Giants quarterback Eli Manning threw an interception on the team's first play of the season in Sunday night's season opener against the Dallas Cowboys. Manning appeared to be setting up for a screen pass intended for RB David Wilson, but threw the ball right into the hands of Cowboys defensive lineman DeMarcus Ware. That gave the Cowboys the ball on the Giants...

Eli Manning Has Perfected The Derp Face

When Eli Manning threw the pick-6 dagger with less than two minutes left we were treated to an epic Derp Face moment that is worthy of Hat tip:

David Wilson's miscues sink Giants in Big D

Eli Manning threw three interceptions, but it was the lackluster play of running back David Wilson that stood out during Sunday night’s loss to the Dallas Cowboys.

Tom Coughlin is ‘disappointed and embarrassed’ with Giants

The New York Giants opened their 2013 season with a 36-31 defeat to the Dallas Cowboys after failing to take care of the ball. “We turned the ball over five times and muffed a punt,” coach Tom Coughlin said. “Six times we gave the ball away tonight. Six times – that’s my fault. I’m totally, totally disappointed and embarrassed by that kind of football. That’s sloppy...

NY Giants' Antrel Rolle says Peyton Manning and Broncos offense doesn't scare Big Blue

Eli Manning’s touchdowns and interceptions combined against the Cowboys equaled his big brother’s total of scoring strikes in Week 1. Peyton Manning torched the defending Super Bowl champions for a career-best seven touchdowns last Thursday in Denver’s convincing season-opening win over Baltimore but the Giants’ secondary doesn’t sound as if it’s cowering from the challenge...

Cowboys backing up turnover talk with action

The Dallas Cowboys forced six turnovers and scored two defensive touchdowns in their 36-31 victory over the New York Giants in the season opener. They also gave up 450 yards passing to Eli Manning and didn't secure the win until an onside kick even after the Giants matched the most giveaways they've allowed since 1987. Linebacker Sean Lee said the Cowboys have been working...

2013 Fantasy Football Champs and Chumps: Week 1

2013 NFL Power Rankings: Week 2

Peyton Manning (Photo by Jeffrey Beall via CC BY-SA 3.0) Week 1 of the 2013 NFL season had some surprising outcomes. Even those who won – like the Seattle Seahawks and Indianapolis Colts – failed to do so in impressively. By the same token, a win is a win and not every game is easy in pro football. Peyton Manning once again entered the NFL record book by tossing seven touchdowns...

Giants at Cowboys: Opening Game a Cursed Mess

The curse of the Dallas Cowboys winning in their house against the Giants has remained for four seasons, and last night as messy as this game played out, the AT&T house reverts back to the Dallas Cowboys. The game was one "hot mess". Eli Manning started the game off with an interception and ended the game with an interception.Nice to be consistent. Six turnovers, with...

NFC East Appears Wide Open, Eagles Can Make a Statement vs. Redskins

After watching the Cowboys and Giants game on Sunday Night Football, I came away thinking that the Eagles may stand a chance in the NFC East this season.  Chip Kelly and the Birds can put this division on notice with a solid victory tonight versus the defending NFC East champs. The Dallas/New York game was a comedy of errors that featured seven total turnovers, 11 penalties and...

New York Giants Exposed By Dallas in 36-31 Loss

Get ready New York Giants fans, because this is what we are going to see from this team in 2013. The Giants' 36-31 loss to the Dallas Cowboys exposed problems and weaknesses on both sides of the ball for the New York Giants. Despite Eli Manning going 27/42 for 450 yards (4 TD/3 INTS), despite Victor Cruz having 3 TD receptions (5/118), despite Hakeem Nicks (5/114) and Rueben...

NFL Week 1: The Deciding Factor of all 16 Games

Week 1 is officially history. 32 teams had a chance to start the season on the right foot, but only 16 accomplished their goal. In every competitive game, not just football, there is a deciding factor. A moment of clarity, a swing of momentum, where every team knows “we got this game.” It could happen at any time of the game, and it could be an assortment of plays. A tackle,...

Grading the Dallas Cowboys Defense After Week 1

(Photo Credit: LM Otero/Associated Press) It’s not often you see a team force 6 turnovers in a single game. It’s even less often that a team forcing 6 turnovers wins by less than a touchdown. That’s exactly what happened to the Dallas Cowboys on Sunday night. The Cowboys forced and recovered three fumbles, and intercepted Eli Manning three times, yet only won 36-31 when it...
