Playoffs in jeopardy after Week 1?

Normally, Kosmo doesn't like to panic with teams who lost their season opening football games. After all, there is eight more games left to play.
But Kosmo admits he's a little worried about the state playoff prospects of three teams that lost their opening games in Week 1.
First is Birmingham Brother Rice, which fell to Detroit Martin Luther King, 32-19. Brother Rice plays in one of the toughest league's in the state, and losing a game out of league hurts tremendously. Brother Rice has to deal with Warren De La Salle, Novi Detroit Catholic Central and Orchard Lake St. Mary's during the regular season and then possibly again with one of those teams in the Prep Bowl, meaning the Warriors have to win at least two of those four games to stay afloat.
Likewise, Stoney Creek has a fight on its hands to make the playoffs after losing on Thursday to Port Huron Northern, 23-13. The Cougars reside in another balanced league, the OAA White, and have to somehow get two wins against the group of Farmington Hills Harrison, Rochester Adams, Southfield and Farmington to keep their playoff chances alive.
Auburn Hills Avondale also has an uphill climb after the Yellow Jackets lost to Warren Fitzgerald, 21-20. The Yellow Jackets need to be one of the top teams in the OAA Blue now, or else there won't be a playoff appearance.
