Victor Cruz

The Broncos' one-point win over the Panthers on Thursday should have sent us the message: We were in for a wild week of NFL games.

The NFL opened its first full Sunday with 10 of the 13 games being decided by one possession. A variety of highlight-reel plays were on display from big names and people you may have never heard of.

Let's catch you up on Sunday's results with the most notable play in each game.

Packers 27, Jaguars 23

Although Blake Bortles threw for 320 yards and Aaron Rodgers only mustered 199, it only took a few minutes of watching this game to recognize who the better quarterback is. Rodgers showed off his expertise in the waning seconds of the first half, tossing a 17-yard touchdown pass to Davante Adams while being dragged down. Green Bay took the lead and never gave it up.

Ravens 13, Bills 7

This was the defensive grind you would expect from Rex Ryan stopping by his old stomping grounds. Justin Tucker had field goals from 50 and 37 yards, but the one play to remember from the game was a 66-yard pass from Joe Flacco to Mike Wallace. Welcome home to the AFC North, Mike.

Texans 23, Bears 14

DeAndre Hopkins had five receptions for 54 yards and touchdown, but rookie first-round pick Will Fuller stole the show for Houston. Down 14-13 early in the fourth quarter, facing a third-and-7, Fuller took a screen pass from Brock Osweiler and took it 18 yards to the house. The Texans added a field goal for the win.

Eagles 29, Browns 10

In a matchup of two teams with low expectations, the Eagles dictated the pace of play from the start. In fact, the best highlight came from the first drive. Rookie Carson Wentz (278 passing yards, 2 TDs) found Jordan Matthews for a 19-yard passing score. The Eagles never trailed and beat old division foe Robert Griffin III, who threw for 190 yards and one interception.

Buccaneers 31, Falcons 24

Jameis Winston had himself a day in Atlanta, throwing for 281 yards and four touchdowns. He hit Brandon Myers, Austin Seferian-Jenkins and Mike Evans for touchdowns, but this Charles Sims move is what will stick in Falcons fans' heads. The backup running back made seven red jerseys miss to get into the end zone before halftime. Tampa Bay held the lead for good.

Vikings 25, Titans 16

After Teddy Bridgewater's injury, the Vikings were supposed to struggle against the Titans. And Minnesota did, getting shutout by Tennessee in the first half. However, the Vikings found their groove in the second half, sparked by this 77-yard pick-six by Eric Kendricks. The Vikings added a second defensive touchdown in the fourth quarter on a 24-yard fumble return. Although Minnesota could not muster an offensive touchdown, the defensive success bailed out Shaun Hill.

Bengals 23, Jets 22

This game was hyped up to be a battle between A.J. Green and Darrelle Revis, and it was really no contest. Green caught 12 passes for 180 yards and a touchdown. The 54-yard TD catch was a massive burn of Revis. The Jets' offense nearly saved Revis, but a last-minute Mike Nugent field goal won it for Cincinnati, 23-22.

Raiders 35, Saints 34

After Seth Roberts' 10-yard touchdown reception from Derek Carr brought Oakland to within one, Jack Del Rio called, "YOLO," and went for two. Carr lobbed a jump ball to Michael Crabtree, who came down with the rock and gave the Raiders a 35-34 lead with 47 seconds left. Wil Lutz had a chance to win it for New Orleans with a 61-yard field goal attempt at the gun, but he missed left.

Chiefs 33, Chargers 27

This game seemed over twice, with the Chargers leading 24-3 at 6:02 in the third quarter and then 27-10 at 13:24 in the fourth. But Kansas City rallied, and Spencer Ware's 5-yard TD rush with 1:03 left in regulation forced overtime. In overtime, Alex Smith, who threw for 363 yards and two touchdowns, ran for the game-winning score.

Seahawks 12, Dolphins 10

This was the darling survival pool pick of the week, and Seattle made fans sweat it out. Seattle led most of the second half, 6-3, before Ryan Tannehill ran for a touchdown rush to put the Dolphins ahead 10-6 with 4:08 left. Russell Wilson, who threw for 258 yards, finally found the end zone with a 2-yard pass to Doug Baldwin. Hours earlier, Baldwin was the ring leader of the Seahawks' demonstration in which players interlocked arms during the national anthem.

Lions 39, Colts 35

A wild one in Indy deserves an entire drive as a highlight. Andrew Luck found Jack Doyle for a six-yard touchdown strike with 37 seconds left to give the Colts a 35-34 lead. But Matthew Stafford went crazy for the next 30 seconds. Starting at his own 25, Stafford needed three passes to advance 50 yards. Matt Prater connected on a 43-yard field goal, and the Lions took the lead 37-35 with four seconds left. A safety as time expired made this score look less close than it was.

Giants 20, Cowboys 19

Rookies Dak Prescott and Ezekiel Elliott kept Dallas in this game, and the Cowboys even had a 19-13 lead with 13:59 left. Then Victor Cruz, playing his first game since Oct. 12, 2014, caught a 3-yard touchdown pass from Eli Manning on a third down to put the Giants ahead with 6:13 left. Cruz did the salsa and finished with four receptions for 34 yards. Manning threw for 207 yards and three touchdown passes, the other two scores going to Larry Donnell and Sterling Shepard. Don't worry, Odell Beckham Jr. fantasy owners. He had four receptions for 73 yards, including a 45-yard bomb.

Patriots 23, Cardinals 21

Larry Fitzgerald had a series of stunning plays for Arizona, but Jimmy Garoppolo deserves a highlight here. Tom Brady's temporary replacement threw for 264 yards and one touchdown for New England. That came on the Patriots' opening drive, as Garoppolo hit Chris Hogan. Stephen Gostkowski kicked a 53-yarder and a 32-yarder in the fourth quarter, with the latter being the ultimate game-winner with 3:48 left.
