Brian Daboll, New York Giants Head Coach: Criticized for keeping QB Daniel Jones in a blowout loss. Decision seen as absurd and irresponsible.
Joe Burrow, Cincinnati Bengals Quarterback: Humiliating performance after becoming highest-paid QB. Abysmal stats in harsh conditions. Benched in favor of backup.
Pittsburgh Steelers: Offense struggled, no first downs early. QB Kenny Pickett under pressure, sacked five times. Defense gave up 391 yards in a lopsided loss.
Rookie Head Coaches: Jonathan Gannon (Cardinals) lost a close game. Shane Steichen (Colts) lost a late lead. DeMeco Ryans (Texans) struggled in the second half.
Los Angeles Chargers Defense: Defense couldn't sack the QB. Allowed a record number of passing yards and touchdowns.
Jalen Hurts, Philadelphia Eagles Quarterback: Expected MVP favorite, but performed poorly. Struggled with low passing yards and accuracy. Nearly cost the game with a late fumble.
