Matthew made his NFL debut today. Except for one rookie mistake with the interception return, I think he did pretty good. He was 7 of 14 for 114 with one touchdown and the one interception. He was also hurt by a few drops from his receivers. The thing I was impressed with the most though was how he bounced backed after throwing the INT. Great job Matthew!
Here's some of the stuff I found. I know most of the headlines seem redundant, but I tried to leave out all the stuff that was repetitive, and I only posted the best links.
