Bye: Gold Coast
  • Port Adelaide was restricted to its lowest ever losing score (and its second lowest score of all time), going down to St Kilda 15.12 (102) to 5.6 (36).
  • David Zaharakis kicked the winning goal in the final seconds, ensuring that Essendon beat Collingwood for the first time on Anzac Day since 2005.
  • Richmond won their first match of the season, winning against North Melbourne by 36 points.
  • Fremantle also won their first match of the season, defeating Sydney by 21 points, in the process snapping a five-match winless streak against the Swans which had stretched back to 2004.
  • Geelong defeated Brisbane by 93 points. The Brisbane Lions' score of 5.3 (33) was the lowest in club history (although both predecessors of the merged club, the Brisbane Bears and Fitzroy had scored lower). The club's previous lowest score of 5.5 (35) was also scored against Geelong at Skilled Stadium, two years earlier in 2007 AFL season. Additionally, Geelong amassed 490 disposals, smashing the old record of 469 disposals set by West Coast in 2007 and matched by Geelong in 2008; their 254 handpasses was also a record. These two records would stand for seven days.
  • Cold and rainy conditions in Melbourne saw the MCG host its lowest crowd (14,129) since 2004.
