Here's the Andrew Luck helmet hit that got Bengal ejected

"I was like, 'OK, take a left and then a right on Capitol and then go around.' so that was routine, " Luck said.

Browns Kicker Zane Gonzalez saw his would-be game-winning field goal blocked late in overtime, denying them what would have been a momentous start to the season.

After tearing his labrum in his right shoulder against Tennessee near the end of the 2015 season, Luck injured that same shoulder early in 2016, spraining his AC joint while snowboarding in Colorado.

Williams lowered his head and made helmet-to-helmet contact with Luck, who was diving for a first down while being tackled from behind by another player during the first quarter. I didn't think I was going to get ejected for unnecessary roughness. Even with that, Luck completed 39-of-53 passes for 319 yards with the interception and a 5-yard touchdown to Hilton. But that's never been Luck's mode, at times to his detriment, and he was tackled in sort of a half-slide as he reached the first down marker. It also forced the Colts to shuffle things. Fortunately, Luck got back up and was fine, but Williams' day is over and it's likely that he'll hear from the league after this one.

"All the onus is on me to understand", he said. "I don't know what else I'm supposed to do". They'll live with a Week 1 loss if it means the team can continue to build chemistry with their quarterback and make a playoff run.
