The NFL is back and the first Sunday of the season is now in the books.

As usual, the games included controversial moments, incredible plays, bloopers, and poor defensive backs getting run over.

The Browns season got off to an even worse start as they fell behind 7-0 in the first 2.5 minutes when their offense went 3-and-out and then had a punt blocked.

Carson Wentz's first touchdown of the season was incredible as he eluded two sacks and eventually hit Nelson Agholor.

The Steelers are wearing a patch in honor of Dan Rooney who died earlier this year.

In lieu of protesting the anthem, Browns players ran on to the field along with military and police personnel and stood arm-in-arm with them. Several players participated in a video message pleading for social justice and equality.

Michael Bennett sat during the anthem prior to the Seahawks game.

The New York Jets made a nice play early against Buffalo Bills and then messed it up when they tackled their own player.

Eagles cornerback Jalen Mills had green hair.

It didn't take long for the Houston Texans to bench starting quarterback Tom Savage. The team turned to rookie Deshaun Watson to start the second half and the crowd cheered.

A couple of NFL teams had trouble filling their stadiums on opening weekend, including the 49ers, as this image early in the third quarter shows.

And here is a shot of the crowd at the Rams game during the opening kickoff.

Atlanta Falcons tight end Austin Hooper only had 2 catches, but he made them count, gaining 128 yards, including an 85-yard touchdown. He also slammed two defenders into the ground along the way.

Adoree' Jackson showed off his hurdling abilities on a kick return against the Raiders.

Members of the Nashville Predators were on hand to cheer on the Titans and they brought catfish with them.

Kenny Golladay went full extension to catch this touchdown pass from Matthew Stafford.

The Cowboys' Taco Charlton had a fighting taco on his cleats for "Sunday Night Football."

When the Oakland Raiders were trying to run out the clock in their win, Marshawn Lynch went full-Beast Mode and ran over the 300-pound Jurrell Casey.

The most controversial play of the day came when Kirk Cousins fumbled and the Eagles returned it for a game-clinching touchdown. Many, including players on both teams, thought it should have been overturned on replay, but the call was upheld.

Jordan Howard dropped a potential game-winning touchdown in the closing seconds of the Chicago Bears' loss to the Atlanta Falcons.

No suspension yet for Ezekiel Elliott, so he and his abs were dressed and played against the Giants on Sunday night.

On the other hand, Odell Beckham Jr. tried to give his injured ankle a go in warmups, but ultimately did not play.
