NFL Highlights: Chris Carson, James Washington Find the End Zone in Week 1

Also, a pair of injuries cast a cloud over the return of pro football.

The NFL season is finally here. I was so excited for the return of pro football that the empty seats and piped-in crowd noise didn’t bother me all that much.

Let’s recap Week 1 with some of the highlights made by former Cowboys.

Chris Carson Huge in Seahawks’ Win

If you went the homer route and nabbed Chris Carson in your fantasy league, Sunday was a good start.

Carson only rushed the ball six times for 21 yards, as the Seahawks split reps between he and offseason addition Carlos Hyde. But Carson was perfect in the passing game grabbing all six targets for 45 yards and two TDs.

James Washington Shows Out on Monday Night

Washington caught two of his three targets for 34 yards and this tough-earned score.

Setting any Mason Rudolph fandom aside, it’s hard to argue that the return of Ben Roethlisberger has, and will, benefit Washington. 

Other Notes

• Both Blake Jarwin and Lane Taylor suffered season-ending knee injuries in Week 1.

• Justice Hill was inactive (thigh) as his Ravens beat down the Browns 38-6.
