And when Pittsburgh's Week 1 clash with the new-look Cleveland Browns ended in a wild overtime tie, Bell had a singular reaction on Twitter that's already attracting major attention.
"Hell yeah, it feels like a loss", Steelers defensive tackle Cam Heyward said.
Kirk Cousins completed 20 of 36 passes for 244 yards and two touchdowns in his debut with Minnesota, which held on for a win over visiting San Francisco. Gordon caught just one pass, but it was important. "Whether that is newness or whatever it is, I do not want to get caught up in all of that". In that game, he came out of the gate hot with two sacks and an interception. But on Cleveland's first play, Gordon lined up wide in a three-tight end personnel package. Rookie Denzel Ward had two interceptions in his National Football League debut.
"Sometimes the game plans change", Gordon said, admitting after the 21-21 tie he was surprised to start.
"I think he is going to have a great year", Browns coach Hue Jackson said.
Bills quarterback Nathan Peterman was inaccurate and under pressure until being replaced by rookie first-round draft pick Josh Allen with 11:22 remaining in the third quarter. Regardless, the team is off to its best start to a season since 2004 with a record of 0-0-1.More news: Serena Williams Fined $17000 For US Open Controversy
Confusion arose because Gordon had missed a good part of training camp and preseason as part of his treatment for substance abuse.
The Broncos trailed 24-20 in the fourth quarter but Keenum led them on a seven-play, 75-yard drive. "He's continuing to get better as well".
"It's the nature of the game", DeCastro said. You take the turnovers, and the penalties that we had and our inability to do some things early offensively, those are huge keys to a tie game.
Nothing was really doing for both teams in the first quarter, but Cleveland's defense flexed its muscles on Steelers' quarterback Ben Roethlisberger as they forced him to turn the ball over on an interception by rookie cornerback Denzel Ward.
But Gonzalez's kick was low and Watt, who had four sacks, got deep penetration and appeared to get his hand on the ball, which went sideways and landed on the soaked FirstEnergy Stadium turf as thousands of Browns fans threw up their hands in disbelief. The Steelers had six turnovers in the game and kicker Chris Boswell missed a game-winning 42-yard field goal in the overtime. Throwing shade at Pittsburgh wouldn't have made much sense about the running game when Conner's 135 yards and two touchdowns put the Steelers in a position to potentially win.
