Week 2 of the NFL season is in the books and as we have all come to love about the league, there were surprises everywhere, upsets galore and one of the strangest lists of 2-0 teams I have seen in a long time.

Wilson Woes In Loss To Patriots

The woes for Jets Rookie Quarterback Zach Wilson continued in Week 2’s loss to the New England Patriots. The 2nd overall pick threw 19/33 for 210 Yards and 4 Interceptions. The most worrying part is for the most part the interceptions thrown were nowhere near Jets receivers showing he still has a long way to go at this level.

Carson Croaked Again

Another season and another Carson Wentz injury. With time running out and the Colts needing to score many were looking confused to see Jacob Eason under centre. It later transpired that Wentz had suffered not one but two sprained ankles, honestly didn’t even know that was possible. Eason Promptly gave the ball away and the Colts lost, the next question on the minds of Colts and Eagles fans will be, how long is Wentz out for?

Darnold Delivering For Panthers

Sam Darnold is a redemption story I backed during the offseason, given his torturous time at the Jets, I felt the Panthers was a really nice spot for the former first-rounder. So far, he’s ticking along nicely and managed to achieve his first ever 2-0 start. Right now, not too much is being asked of him but he is taking care of the football and winning games and that’s always a good place to be.

Are The Raiders Legit?

The Las Vegas Raiders moved to 2-0 this week and it was against another AFC North foe, with a Week one victory over the Ravens then this Week’s win over the Steelers, the Las Vegas side are one of the few remaining 2-0 sides. How long can they keep it up though?

Jackson Finally Tops Mahomes

After fumbling away the win against the Raiders in Week One, you would be forgiven for thinking it was a case of here we go again for Lamar Jackson and the Ravens when they faced off against the Kansas City Chiefs. However, on 4th and 1 with a chance to seal the game, Coach Harbaugh asked Lamar Jackson if he wanted to go for it. Jackson duly obliged and rushed for the first down and iced the game. Finally, he was able to see the game out and beat Patrick Mahomes.

Vikings Still In Kicker Crisis

With the slate of late games being unbelievably tight across the board, there is always room for late heroics. Heroes and Villains can be made in those dying seconds and most of the time the opportunity falls to the kicker. Over the past few seasons, the Vikings kickers have blown their opportunities and changes kept being made. But Sunday provided another golden chance to win a game and this time it fell to Greg Joseph. However, much like his predecessors in Minnesota, he bottled it, missing the kick and allowing the Cardinals to escape with a win.

Bengals Should Have Taken Oline

Yeah sure, Chase has put his preseason struggles behind him, but that Bengals Offence still looks poor. In their Week 2 loss, they gave up 5 sacks and their Quarterback feeling the heat threw 3 interceptions. The Bengals may have had a late charge but the reality is they had 3 points through three quarters, and that simply isn’t good enough. Add to that the strong performances by Sewell in Detroit and Burrow must be wondering how much more of a beating he will take.

The Two Aarons Bounce Back

The Packers including superstars Aaron Rodgers and Aaron Jones had absolute shockers in their Week 1 loss to the Saints. People were predicting this was the end for the Packers and mainly Rodgers. Fast forward a week and the narrative hasn’t half changed. Rodgers threw 4 touchdown passes, three of them to Jones who added a rushing one to his total. Both players contributing 4 touchdowns each and all of a sudden things look rosy in Wisconsin.

Henry Is The King

If the playbook in Tennessee isn’t 99% “Give the ball to Henry” then I am afraid they are doing something wrong. The guy is an absolute freak of nature. The King racked up 182 Yards and 3 touchdowns on 35 carries at 5.2 yards per carry. The scary part however is the Titans threw him the ball six times for 55 yards. If Henry becomes a pass-catching back as well then defensive coordinators won’t be sleeping the night before games against him and the Titans. GIVE THE BIG MAN THE BALL!
