The NFL season may have began on Thursday night with a rematch of Super Bowl 50, but it kicked into gear on Sunday with 13 games being played on the opening Sunday of the season.

It didn't take long for the players to hit form, with the quarterbacks finding their targets from as far as 98-yards away, as Drew Brees did for the New Orleans Saints.

Here are six of the best from the opening Sunday of the season. We are in for an exciting season if these any a precursor of what's to come. 

Mike Wallace (Baltimore) v Buffalo 

AJ Green (Cincinnati) v New York Jets 

DeMarco Murray (Tennessee) v Minnesota  

Brandin Cooks (New Orleans) v Oakland  

Jalen Richards (Oakland) v New Orleans  

LeGarrette Blount (New England) v Arizona
