N.F.L. Week 1 Live Updates: Lamar Jackson and Baltimore Drop 59 on Miami

The N.F.L. began its 100th season with a defensive slugfest between the Green Bay Packers and the Chicago Bears on Thursday night that reminded people a bit too much of what football looked like 100 years ago. There should be quite a bit more offense on Sunday. Come back here all day for highlights, injuries, top performances and (presumably) even more drama from Antonio Brown.

Remember when there was concern over whether Lamar Jackson could succeed as a quarterback once teams adjusted to Baltimore’s run-heavy approach? He started off his sophomore season by leading the Ravens to the highest score in the N.F.L. since 2012.

Jackson could do no wrong. Written off by some last season as an electric runner with no passing arm, he completed 17 of 20 passes for 324 yards and five touchdowns on Sunday before he was pulled from the game with his team leading by 52-10.

The Dolphins got one touchdown pass out of the veteran Ryan Fitzpatrick, but had turned to the newly-acquired Josh Rosen by the end of the game. Neither made any sort of dent in Baltimore’s terrific start to the season.

The top performances after the 1 p.m. games.

  • Lamar Jackson, BAL: 17-20, 324 yards, 5 touchdowns

  • Patrick Mahomes, KC: 25-33, 378 yards, 3 touchdowns

  • Case Keenum, WAS: 30-45, 380 yards, 3 touchdowns
