NFL week two is in the books and it was a pretty damn good one all things considered.
Rivalry week, as some decided to call it, pitted a lot of divisional rivals up against each other and there were some very interesting results.
Cam Newton was the obvious star of the show as the Carolina Panthers powered through to a huge 46-27 win over the San Francisco 49ers. Newton ran the show for the devastating Panthers, ending the night with over 350 yards and four touchdowns.

The Saint Louis Rams provided the biggest upset of the week as they beat the much-fancied Seattle Seahawks in an NFC West clash. They managed to do that despite not reaching the endzone once in a 9-3 victory.

Special mentions were given to DeAngelo Williams and Von Miller for solid performances, while Russell Wilson and Rex Ryan need to improve drastically.
