A wild week 2 in the NFL season ended with the Buffalo Bills laying the smack down on the Tennesse Titans. This week we saw a fun Thursday Night Football game between the Chiefs and Chargers and lots of drama on Sunday, including multiple 4th quarter comebacks. There was all sorts of movement in the power rankings, as you would expect in week two. Moving forward I think things are going to start to sort themselves out. However, there is one thing for sure…Buffalo is the real deal! Let’s get into it!
1.) Buffalo Bills (2-0)
Buffalo has outscored their opponents 72 to 17 to start the season. Josh Allen is playing MVP-caliber football and Stefon Diggs has been incredible to start the season with over 270 yards receiving and 4 TDs in two games. The Bills host the Dolphins in Week 3, which promises to have fireworks.
2.) Kansas City Chiefs (2-0)
After steamrolling the Cardinals in Week 1, the Chiefs had a more challenging battle on Thursday Night Football against the Chargers. But in the end, they prevailed. Mahomes connected with 9 different receivers for 235 yards and 2 scores en route to a Chiefs victory. The Chiefs host the Raiders in Week 3.
3.) Tampa Bay Buccaneers (2-0)
This was an offensive struggle for the Bucs but fortunately for Tom Brady and crew, the defense came to play. The Bucs’ D forced 5 turnovers and had a pick 6 to lead the Bucs to a 20-10 victory and a 2-0 record. The Bucs host the Packers in Week 3.
4.) Philadelphia Eagles (2-0)
Jalen Hurts looked the part on Monday Night for the Eagles. Hurts had over 330 yards passing, 50 plus yards rushing, and 3 total TDs to help lead the Eagles past the Vikings. The Eagles play the Commanders in Week 3.
5.) Miami Dolphins (2-0)
Tank for Tua is looking really nice for the Dolphins right now. Sure Tyreek Hill and Jaylen Waddle help but on Sunday Tua and company came back from a 3 TD 4th quarter deficit to beat the Ravens 42-38. Tua passed for 6 TDs while Hill and Waddle combined for 270 yards receiving and 4 TD catches. The Dolphins have a huge game with Buffalo in Week 3.
6.) Los Angeles Rams (1-1)
I should have probably moved them down after they struggled to put away the Falcons on Sunday, however, I still think they are a premier team in the NFC. The Rams looked great early against the Falcons but late mistakes allowed the Falcons to hang around. The Rams will need to tighten things up over the next two weeks as they have road division games against the Cardinals and 49ers.
7.) Los Angeles Chargers (1-1)
The Chargers had opportunities to put the Chiefs away on Thursday Night but they couldn’t do it. Justin Herbert showed grit, playing through a rib injury he sustained during the game. Herbert passed for over 330 yards and 3 TDs. The Chargers host the Jaguars in Week 3.
8.) Green Bay Packers (1-1)
The Packers move into the top 10 after doing what they do best on Sunday Night Football and defeating the Chicago Bears. Both Aaron Rodgers and Aaron Jones looked good in victory. But isn’t that what they’re supposed to do? The real season won’t start for the Packers until the playoffs.
9.) Baltimore Ravens (1-1)
Lamar balled. Lamar is going to get paid. Lamar passed for over 300 yards and 3 TDs while rushing for 119 yards and a score. Pay that man! However, as good as Lamar was the Ravens couldn’t hold off the full-court press by the Dolphins and blew a 3 TD 4th quarter lead. The Ravens play New England in Week 3.
10.) New York Giants (2-0)
What’s right is what’s right! The Giants are one of 6 undefeated teams remaining and therefore get this spot. The Giants defeated the Panthers 19-16 behind 4 Graham Gano field goals. The Giants’ defense forced two turnovers and the offense did enough to get the win. The Giants host the Cowboys on Monday Night Football in Week 3.
