All the Numbers from NFL Week 1

Week one is over in the NFL and as usual there are more stats than any numbers person would ever know what to do with.

This first week of the season had its share of great plays, great games and last minute outcomes.

Kansas City returned to winning form, the Patriots nearly lost to a rookie and Terrelle Pryor almost became an instant hero in Oakland.

However, individual numbers stood out in the games and on the betting lines.

3 – The amount of safeties that were scored in just the first quarter of the games in week one of the season.

15 – How many seconds were left in the game when LaVonte David committed a personal foul on Jets quarterback Geno Smith to put New York in field goal position to kick the winning field goal.

78 – The number of yards Adrian Peterson had in his first rush from scrimmage with 10:49 left in the first quarter against Detroit. He was held to just 15 yards after that by the Lions defense.

412 – The amount of yards Colin Kaepernick threw for the 49ers in their 34-28 win over Green Bay.

7 – the number of favorites that covered in week 1, including Denver, Seattle, Detroit, Kansas City, New Orleans, San Francisco and Dallas.

8 – the number of favorites who did not cash out including, New England, Cleveland, Indianapolis, Tampa Bay, Pittsburgh, St. Louis, Washington and Houston.

8 – The number of games that have cashed out on the OVER including Monday Night’s two games

8 – The number of early Sunday games, out of 10, that cashed out on the UNDER, while the last 3 games of the day on Sunday and both on Monday went OVER.
