The Viral Roundup – Flavour Of The Week

The Viral Roundup – Flavour Of The Week
The National Football League offers up Sunday action galore, the Jays get blanked in the Bronx and Jonathan Toews pulls off a trick shot you need to see to believe. Here's the sparkling new world of sports you're waking up to on September 14, 2015.

Did You Hear?

Hello Buffalo! The NFL kicked off its first Sunday of the year with a few intriguing results along the way. The Bills looked strong at home with an impressive 27-14 win over the Colts. Indy couldn’t get on the board until the second half and the injury bug bit WR T.Y. Hilton and RB Frank Gores. Newly established Buffalo QB Tyrod Taylor didn’t put up big numbers, but he did well going 14-19 with a TD and 195 yards passing.

Did You See?

Desperate for the NHL to return? Us too. Please enjoy this video of Jonathan Toews pulling off an insane trick shot as a temporary way to satisfy your cravings. It’s a feat that needs to be seen to be believed. On a loosely related note, the Blackhawks are considered by oddsmakers to be the most likely 2016 Stanley Cup winner at 13/2 odds.

Did You Know?

- The Seahawks had a rough start in their planned voyage towards Super Bowl redemption. The Rams (a four point home underdog) pulled off a 34-31 OT win on Sunday with Nick Foles tossing a late 4th quarter TD to pull the game into the extra frame. Overtime started off in eyebrow arching fashion with Seattle coach Pete Carroll trying out an onside kick to begin OT. The Rams earned the win with a Greg Zuerlein field goal and the NFC champs being unable to respond.

- A big AFC clash headlined the second slate of games on Sunday. The Denver Broncos topped the Baltimore Ravens in a 19-13 showdown that featured little in the way passing prowess. Manning threw for 175 yards with a pick, while his Baltimore counterpart Joe Flacco tossed two picks with only 117 yards through the air. 

- The NFL’s most buzzed about rookies went head-to-head in Week 1 with a definite winner crowned. Marcus Mariota tossed 4 TDs as he lead Tennessee to a 42-14 road blowout victory over Jameis Winston and the Bucs. Mariota’s TD total was something not seen in a rookie debut in ages and helped the Titans start off the year on a very positive note.

- The Yankees put the brakes on Toronto humiliating them at home with a four game sweep. The Yanks (a -140 home favourite) blanked the Jays 5-0 thanks in large part to starter Masahiro Tanaka pitching seven scoreless innings to collect his 12th win of 2015. The victory pulls New York to 3.5 games back of Toronto in the AL East. The Jays are currently dealing with some news that’s more troubling than a Sunday loss. All-Star shortstop will miss at least two weeks of action thanks to a cracked left shoulder blade.
