Reigning Super Bowl Champs Disappoint on Thursday Night Football

There was a lot of hype about the opening week of the NFL season — particularly in a Thursday Night Football showdown between the Buffalo Bills and Los Angeles Rams. That game turned into a clunker, though.

Buffalo dominated the reigning Super Bowl champions in a 31-10 victory. Josh Allen threw for 297 yards and three touchdowns and added 56 rushing yards and a score on the ground in the win.

The Rams ended the game with just 243 yards of total offense and managed just one touchdown in the opener. Quarterback Matthew Stafford tossed three interceptions in his 2022 debut.

While Week 1 turned out to be a pretty thrilling opening weekend across the NFL, the Thursday night showdown proved to be a dud. Hopefully this week’s game between the Los Angeles Chargers and Kansas City Chiefs provides a few more fireworks than we saw last Thursday.
