The theme of the 2022 NFL season continued in Week Two as underdogs and highway crew made headlines. The late motion additionally noticed a crew’s quarterback go down for the season to damage as a number of stunning groups raised their file to 2-Zero or fell to 0-2 throughout play on Sunday. The parity of the league appears to be displaying up this season because the margin of victory or defeat is small and one mistaken play name or official’s name is all it takes to swing a recreation’s momentum. Right here now could be a recap of all of the NFL motion from week two of the season.

Kansas Metropolis 27, LA Chargers 24: Amazon Prime Video was given an old style, arduous hitting NFL video games to kick off their Thursday Night time Soccer protection. Gamers had been discovering themselves airborne and planted within the Arrowhead Stadium turf as the 2 favorites within the AFC West dueled for sixty minutes. With Chargers’ QB Justin Herbert ending the sport with a rib damage, it was Kansas Metropolis who walked away with the win after taking a late ten-point lead which LA didn’t have sufficient time to comeback from. The heath of Herbert might be a query going into Week Three and probably for the following a number of weeks with the crew reevaluating his situation on Wednesday.

Miami 42, Baltimore 38: For the primary three quarters of this recreation, it was the Lamar Jackson spotlight present, with the Ravens’ QB operating for a 79-yard landing and increase a 35-14. Within the fourth quarter, Baltimore’s protection collapsed, and Miami spoiled the Ravens’ house opener with a 28-Three comeback. Justin Tucker did permit Jackson and the Ravens’ offense to go away the sphere with a three-point lead with 2:23 left on the clock; however the Dolphins posted their fourth TD of the quarter with 19 seconds left on the clock on a Tagovailoa move to Jaylen Waddle. Is Miami this good or had been we fooled final week by the Ravens’ protection dealing with the Jets? Sure to each.

Jacksonville 24, Indianapolis 0: The Matt Ryan (unofficial) farewell tour continues to get ugly because the Colts went to Jacksonville this week and had been blanked by the Jaguars’ protection. Ryan tossed three interceptions and had no operating recreation on this one-sided defeat with Trevor Lawrence going 25-30 with two TD to ice this AFC South affair. Sure, America, the 1-1 Jags are tied atop the AFC South and would, if the season ended Monday evening have the third seed within the playoffs. How good Jacksonville will be stays to be seen; nevertheless, I worry we already understand how unhealthy the Colts are.

New England 17, Pittsburgh 14: Issues will not be coming straightforward for these two groups on offense, however it was the Patriots who did simply sufficient to prevail on this battle of AFC foes. The touring Patriots construct a 17-6 lead after three quarters, smothering the Steelers offense till the primary play of the fourth when Pittsburgh discovered the tip zone for the one landing. New England QB Mac Jones posted 252 yards on a 21-35 passing day with the Patriots’ protection forward of schedule as Invoice Belichick usually takes a number of weeks to seek out his rotation on that aspect of the ball. I suppose requires the firing of the Jedi Grasp might be silenced for a number of days after this robust highway win.

NY Giants 19, Carolina 16: Groups that win shut video games early within the season typically develop into hazard, whereas these groups who come up quick in these video games typically watch their season spiral out of the management. For the New York Giants, posting their second straight win in dramatic vogue must be a warning signal for the remainder of the NFC East … Whereas for the Carolina Panthers, arising three factors quick in a recreation there for the taking may imply Baker Mayfield will not be their long-term reply at quarterback. New York’s Graham Gano posted two 50+yard subject targets within the fourth quarter on this kicking battle, whereas the Panthers noticed Mayfield to 14-29 for 145 yards within the loss.

Tampa Bay 20, New Orleans 10: As stories surfaced Sunday morning that Tom Brady might be allowed to take Wednesday’s off at follow for the remainder of the 2022 season, he and his Bucs’ teammates posted their second straight highway win to start out the yr. This recreation was a snooze-fest for third quarters with every crew posting solely a subject purpose, and if it wasn’t for a battle between Tampa Bay WR Mike Evans and Saints DB Marshon Lattimore which noticed each gamers ejected, there could be had zero highlights over the primary 45 minutes. After posted ten fast factors halfway into the fourth quarter, it was a pick-six of New Orleans’ QB Jameis Winston that sealed the victory, making the ultimate TD the Saints scored rubbish time factors.

Detroit 36, Washington 27: It was the Lions protection who received this recreation within the first half after they shutout the Commanders whereas chipping in a security to assist the Lions submit a 22-Zero lead. Jared Goff did watch Carson Wentz pull to inside eight factors simply over 4 minutes left within the forth quarter, however put away the win when he matched the Washington TD drive with certainly one of his personal. Washington did get again to inside 9 factors simply after the two-minute warning, however as soon as they missed the two-point conversion, the sport was successfully over, with the Lions successful.

NY Jets 31, Cleveland 30: Browns’ RB Nick Chubb had a banner day within the crew’s house opener, posting three dashing touchdowns, the final of which coming with 2:02 on the clock, giving the Dawg Pound a 31-17 benefit. Joe Flacco managed to hit Corey Davis on a 66-yard TD move to shut the hole, and the Jets recovered the following onside kick to arrange one other Flacco TD move to steal a highway win in a recreation the Browns coughed up badly. New York performed properly within the second quarter after they posted their first 14 factors, and for the ultimate two minutes of the sport after they posted 14 extra … Cleveland is taking part in simply properly sufficient to maintain issues shut thus far this season, however have discovered unhealthy methods to lose their first two video games in 2022.

LA Rams 31, Atlanta 27: After a dominating first half and posting the primary TD of the second half, the Rams held a 28-Three lead over the Falcons. Atlanta posted 14 of the following 17 factors with the protection including one other landing on a blocked punt, permitting Marcus Mariota to shut to inside three 31-25. It could be as shut because the winless Falcons would get because the Rams held on to win their first recreation of 2022 of their second house contest of the season. Few individuals had religion in Atlanta, and people who had the LA of their knockout swimming pools received, however not those that laid the purpose. It’s clear the Rams have a giant Tremendous Bowl hangover and seem fortunate to be 1-1 slightly than 0-2.

San Francisco 27, Seattle 7: The quick week and no Russell Wilson on the alternative sideline created a really flat Seahawks crew as they traveled to Levi’s Stadium and had been by no means of their NFC West recreation towards the 49ers. For San Francisco, Sunday marked the return of Jimmy Garoppolo who carried the ‘Niners to victory after Trey Lance broke his ankle, knocking him out of the remainder of the 2022 season … This can clearly amp up the drama in Northern California since Jimmy G reworked his contract to be able to develop into a full free agent on the finish of the season, and now has an opportunity to show himself another time in an offense he had has nice success in. Sorry, Mr. Lance, however San Francisco are a greater crew now than they had been at the beginning of the day, and the NFC West must be on discover, as a result of the 49ers are true contenders within the division now.

Denver 16, Houston 9: For the second time in seven days the Broncos scored solely 16 factors; however not like final week in Seattle, this week 16 was candy for Russell Wilson and firm, because it was sufficient to safe the win. Houston’s protection may be a power within the AFC South after permitting 29 factors in two video games this season; however with no offensive help, the Texans are 0-1-1 to start out the yr. It’s arduous to imagine the rumors that Aaron Rodgers would have accepted a commerce to Denver with their lack of star energy on offense; however I suppose Wilson’s struggled are making the 12th Man in Seattle glad. As for Houston, the draft board is already taking form for the Spring of 2023.

Dallas 20, Cincinnati 17: It seems even the runners-up from final season are affected by a Tremendous Bowl hangover after the Bengals went to Dallas and misplaced on a final second FG in Jerry’s World. Cincy solely posted on FG within the first half earlier than including two extra within the third quarter. Down 17-9 late within the fourth quarter, Joe Burrow lastly discovered the tip zone, with a two-point conversion drawing his crew right into a tie. Dallas managed to kick a 50-yard subject purpose to steal a win over a greater crew, giving them their first win of the yr and dropping the Bengals to 0-2. Dallas’ new beginning QB Cooper Rush outplayed Burrow, however don’t count on this to final into the autumn.

Arizona 29, Las Vegas 23 (OT): The Raiders opened their Loss of life Star for the 2022 season as posted a 23-7 lead after three quarters … however that’s when Kyler Murray and the Cardinals’ offense took off over the Las Vegas Strip. Murray posted two fourth quarter TD with a two-point dialog after each to tie the sport with 5 seconds left. Then midway via additional time it was a defensive landing that received the sport for Arizona after Hunter Renfrow caught, after which dropped a Derek Carr move; permitting Bryon Murphy, Jr. to run 59 yards to the tip zone. On this battle within the desert, Las Vegas ought to have received, however didn’t, they usually don’t have Jon Gruden responsible this time round. As for Arizona, their defensive might want to get higher if his 1-1 crew needs to make any noise within the NFC West or through the postseason in January. 

Inexperienced Bay 27, Chicago 10: Nothing helps Packers’ followers R-E-L-A-X greater than seeing Aaron Rodgers taking part in an NFC North crew at house, one thing the fan base actually wanted after Inexperienced Bay laid an egg in Minnesota to start out the season final week. The Packers’ protection smothered the vanilla Bears’ offense and Rodgers did virtually something he needed towards the Chicago protection, with the result by no means actually being in a lot doubt. A late goal-line stand by the Packers’ protection aided the win, with some saying the ghost of Lambeau Discipline had been within the replay sales space and ignored Justin Fields breaking the plain of the tip zone with the tip of the soccer. The higher crew received this recreation, and Bears’ followers will simply want to simply accept they don’t seem to be able to compete with the Packers.

 

Buffalo 41, Tennessee 10:  It was the Josh Allen present through the early recreation of this week’s Monday Night time Soccer twin-bill.  Allen is making his early case for the MVP by posting 82 factors over his first two video games, together with 34 unanswered in two quarters throughout his house opener towards the Titans.  Tennessee scored 13 factors within the first half towards the Giants in Week One and solely 20 extra of their final six quarters; making their offense look unable to compete for an AFC South title this season.  Allen’s finest good friend Monday Night time was Stefon Diggs, who caught three of his QB’s 4 TD passes and accounted for 148 of Allen’s 317 passing yards.  The Titans did reap the benefits of the blowout loss by letting Mailk Willis take a number of snaps at quarterback … maybe indicating that starter Ryan Tannehill might be on quick leash in upcoming video games.

 

Philadelphia 24, Minnesota 7:  The momentum created by the Vikings of their upset win over the Packers final week didn’t make it over the Ben Franklin Bridge into Philadelphia on Monday Night time this week.  That’s as a result of the Minnesota protection had no solutions for Eagles’ QB Jalen Hurts within the first half, permitting the previous Alabama standout to submit three touchdowns, two of which had been operating scores as a part of a 57-yard floor assault.  Vikings’ QB Kirk Cousins matched Hurts’ three TDs with three INTs, together with two within the offensive purple zone as a part of an unpleasant loss.
