But nonetheless, there were some fantastic individual performances to open the season, and a few of them came from the nearly 65 players who are on an active roster from Division 2.
The season is just beginning, and we have two more games to see on Monday night, but here is a quick glimpse of the best performances by D2 alum in the NFL this week.
Tyreek Hill, WR — Kansas City Chiefs
Stats: 7 receptions, 133 yards, 1 TD
If it weren't for Antonio Brown continuing to show why he is the best receiver in the NFL, Hill would be the league-leader in receiving yards with his 133 against the Patriots.
Hill notched his fifth consecutive game with a touchdown of 60 yards on a 75-yard bomb from Alex Smith, and wreaked havoc as KC exposed the New England defense.
An ankle injury hampered the West Alabama product a bit towards the end of the game, but with a long break coming he should be fine to play in week two versus the Eagles.
Ron Parker, S — Kansas City Chiefs
Stats: 11 tackles
Parker had a very good start to his fifth season in KC, racking up a team-leading 11 stops and playing the role of secondary leader following the loss of All-Pro Eric Berry to torn Achilles.
This is a good sign of things to come for the Newberry alum who hasn't broken the 90-tackle mark since the 2014 season. Somebody has to step up in the defensive backfield with the loss of Berry, and Parker looks like the best option.
Greg Zuerlein, K — L.A. Rams
Stats: 3-3 FG (50, 35, 44) / 5-5 XP
Who expected the Rams to score 46 points in their first game under new head coach Sean McVay? Probably no one, but that is exactly what they did. Zuerlein may not be directly responsible for more than nine of those points due to his three field goals, but he also hit all five of his extra points to bring his game total to 14.
"The Leg" from Missouri Western has had a few bad seasons, but his opening-week performance could be a sign that he is back on track to be one of the more prominent kickers in the game.
Brandon Carr, DB — Baltimore Ravens
After picking off just one pass in the last three seasons, Carr intercepted a pass in the first game of the 2017 season, returning it 20 yards before being brought down.
Carr's interception was one of four from the vaunted Ravens' defense, who picked Andy Dalton apart on Sunday in a 20-0 shutout victory. After earning the start Sunday, the former Grand Valley State defensive back snagged a deflected Dalton pass.
Brandon Carr is already showing he has something left in the tank in his 10th year in the league.
