The Chiefs will try to defend their Super Bowl title against Tom Brady and the Buccaneers — who are playing at home.
The Bills rewarded fans in attendance by holding on to beat the Colts. An N.F.C. West grudge match follows, along with the Washington rookie Chase Young’s date with Tom Brady.
Diggs has powered Buffalo’s high-powered offense. But Justin Jefferson, selected with a pick acquired in the Diggs trade, has been nearly as good for Minnesota.
The Falcons collapsed as only the Falcons can, the Chargers nearly shocked the Chiefs, injuries were everywhere and the Ravens simply never lose (in the regular season).
Mahomes and Lamar Jackson headline an exciting new era of the N.F.L., which is on track for an on-time return to the field, just as planned.
