Indianapolis Colts star Quenton Nelson made a huge impact on Sunday night – literally.
The rookie offensive lineman played his part in their 29-26 victory over the Jacksonville Jaguars by delivering a brutal hit in the first quarter.
Nothing out of the ordinary you might think but Nelson, in first year with the Colts, screamed while running before he landed the blow on Barry Church, to protect team-mate Marlon Mack and enable him to gain some extra yardage on the play.
The hit allowed Mack to gain a first down and, while it wasn’t picked up initially, the Colts’ own Twitter account highlighted Nelson’s scream, to the delight of many fans.
The new NFL season is set to start with the Philadelphia Eagles hoping to retain the Super Bowl following their stunning triumph in February.
But they’re not going to have it their own way with the New England Patriots, still led by coach Bill Belichick and quarterback Tom Brady, gunning for revenge having lost the showpiece in Minneapolis.
There will be others out to win the Vince Lombardi trophy with the Los Angeles Rams fancied among bookmakers, along with the Pittsburgh Steelers, and the Minnesota Vikings.
Meanwhile, the Jacksonville Jaguars, who you can hear live on talkSPORT 2 every week as part of our NFL coverage, are also in with a chance thanks to their stunning defense.
But how will the eight divisions of the NFL look at the end of the regular season?
We got talkSPORT’s world famous Super Computer on the case and it’s given us the standings below.
