13 winners and losers of Week 1 of the NFL season

After the game, Jackson was pleased with his effort, especially considering the criticism he received from some that his accuracy would not translate to the pro level. Asked whether his effort proved to those doubters that he could throw the ball, Jackson told reporters, "Probably not, but not bad for a running back."
