With the opening week of the 2013 NFL regular season in the books, Sneaker Report introduces a new recap titled The Cleats That Won Yesterday. This daily installment will highlight the top performers of the previous day's games, matches, and events and which sneakers/cleats they wore. For the introductory piece, we flash back to yesterday's NFL action. Some of the league's top teams and players were in action, which means there were plenty of great cleats on the gridiron as well.
