Football News

Here's a brief rundown of your team's Week 2 performance in a sentence or two. 

Week Two featured some surprises and some key injuries to a few players. From Arizona to Washington, here's a look at how your team got on. 

Arizona Cardinals - Pretty surprising win when your quarterback goes 14-of-29 for 167 yards and is sacked four times. 

Atlanta Falcons - The Falcons were pretty much shutdown on Sunday until the game was pretty much out of hand. 

Baltimore Ravens - Steve Smith Sr. quickly developing into Joe Flacco's favorite target, 25 targets in two games. Next closest is Dennis Pitta at 18.

Buffalo Bills - Rookie Preston Brown led the team in tackles with 13 and has 20 on the year. Picking up where Kiko Alonso left off?

Carolina Panthers - The Panthers defense is picking up right where it left off last year. 7 sacks, 4 turnovers forced and 21 points allowed through two games. 

Chicago Bears - The Bears win Sunday night may have came at a hefty price, losing Charles Tillman for the season and Chris Conte and Jay Ratliff for a long period of time possibly.

Cincinnati Bengals - The Bengals have now won 10 straight regular season games at home. 

Cleveland Browns - It makes you wonder if the Browns even need Ben Tate moving forward. The rookie duo of Terrance West and Isiaiah Crowell has 51 carries for 254 yards and three TD's. 

Dallas Cowboys - DeMarco Murray leads the NFL in rushing by 44 yards over Arian Foster with the third place runner, Alfred Morris 109 yards behind them. Can the Cowboys have the discipline to be a running team this year?

Denver Broncos - The Broncos have outscored opponents 45-17 in the first half while being outscored 24-10 in the second half.

Detroit Lions - The Lions can't continue to go at a rate like this if they want to be a playoff team, they've ran the ball 48 times compared to 80 pass attempts. Must establish a run game. 

Green Bay Packers - Jordy Nelson's 209 receiving yards in Sunday's game shattered his career high of 162 in a game in 2011.

Houston Texans - Will Arian Foster be able to handle this type of workload for 16 weeks? He's on pace for 440 carries.

Indianapolis Colts - The lack of pass rush for the Colts could be costly with just one sack and four quarterback hits through two games.

Jacksonville Jaguars - Ever since jumping out to a 17-0 lead against the Eagles, the Jags have been outscored 75-10. Calling Blake Bortles...

Kansas City Chiefs - Might be a tough year for the Chiefs after a lot of fortunate things happened last year - five starters already out do to injury, including Jamaal Charles.

Miami Dolphins - Ryan Tannehill will have nightmares about the Bills. They've sacked him 18 times and knocked him down 23 times in five career games against them. 

Minnesota Vikings - If Matt Cassel plays like he did on Sunday (4 INT's) moving forward, Teddy Bridgewater may be the first of the first round quarterbacks being drafted to get a start.

New England Patriots - Bill Bellicheck continues to play the running back carousel. A week after being involved in just 22 snaps in Week One against Miami, Stevan Ridley had 25 carries for 101 yards.

New Orleans Saints - The Saints are now 6-12 on the road in their last 18.

New York Giants - Four more turnovers for the Giants on Sunday. That's 46 in their last 18 games.

New York Jets - CJ2K (Chris Johnson) was back to his old ways on Sunday, rushing for 21 yards on 12 carries.

Oakland Raiders - The Raiders front seven (Tuck, Woodley, Mack, Smith) that they spent all this money and draft picks on has zero sacks and zero quarterback hits with 5 tackles for loss in two games.

Philadelphia Eagles - Through two games, Darren Sproles is outperforming LaSean McCoy, 26 touches for 263 yards and two touchdowns for Sproles, McCoy has 51 touches for 217 yards and a touchdown.

Pittsburgh Steelers - After jumping out to a 27-3 lead at halftime against the Browns in Week One, the Steelers have been outscored 50-9 the last six quarters.

San Diego Chargers - The Chargers did a great job sustaining drives and limited the Seahawks to 40 plays on offense. 

San Fransisco 49ers - 27 penalties for 194 yards for the Niners in two games.

Seattle Seahawks - Marshawn Lynch got just six carries in the loss to the Chargers. I wouldn't expect to see that the rest of the season. 

St. Louis Rams - Austin Davis was efficient in his first NFL start. 22-of-29 for 235 yards with no touchdowns or interceptions. 

Tampa Bay Buccaneers - Bobby Rainey continues to impress when the feature back. 144 yards rushing and 30 yards receiving in the loss to the Rams. 

Tennessee Titans - The Titans ran just 49 plays Sunday to the Cowboys 76.

Washington Redskins - 10 sacks on Sunday a week after not touching Ryan Fitzpatrick. The 10 sacks were two short of tying the NFL record in a game, five teams have got 12 sacks in a game before.
