Its week 2 of the NFL and there's been a lot of craziness that's occurred. From missed kicks, to pick sixes. The second week of the season has already been a rollercoaster. And we are here to tell you our favorite games of the week.
New England Patriots vs New York Jets
Patriots was my lock of the week and I’ve never been happier!!!!!! Let’s start with the negatives. The right side of the O-Line looked terrible with OT Trent Brown being out. Durant looked absolutely horrendous as his sub until he was subbed out. Also the Patriots had 4 takeaways and should have had more points. The offense still looks too conservative but I get it. Got to protect Mac Jones. Now the positives. DEFENSE DEFENSE DEFENSE. JC Jackson needs to get paid because he had a multi pick game again!!!! They didn’t apply much pressure with the line but the secondary went to work and forced Wilson to make mistakes. The rushing looked as well as Damien Harris had a thunderous run to make up for his fumble last week. Him and James White played amazing. On to Week 3 vs NOLA!!!
Dallas Cowboys v. LA Chargers
As a member of Cowboys nation, I knew this game was going to be a good one. But I had no idea it would come down to our kicker as the deciding factor. Dak played well again. Even Tony Pollard and Zeke contributed to the scoring total as well. It was refresh to see them so in synch for an entire game. Now I couldn't be as thoroughly involved the way I wanted because I was on my way back from bowling, but you better believe I caught the important parts. I was just happy. Especially after game 1 ended the way it did. We needed the redemption.
Phil’s Pick: Tennessee Titans vs Seattle Seahawks
Seattle Seattle Seattle…. Amazing offense but still suspect defense. They had the lead against Tennessee but they lost it. They even had a questionable touchdown call against Julio Jones go their way and still lost. Russ can cooks all he wants with Tyler Lockett because that duo has been amazing this year but the defense has to show up. As for the Titans all the doubts about King Henry last week has been silenced. Man ran for 182 yards and 3 TDS!!!!!! Amazing game all the way to the end of OT.
Akeem's Pick: Kansas City v. Baltimore Ravens
I fully expected to Kansas City to win. But, nothing in football is ever promised. Much to my surprise the ravens managed to pull off what I would call a huge upset! Because I’m sure with the amount of injuries they had, and the quarterback they were facing, Baltimore was projected to lose this by a lot. Somehow Lamar end up pulling off the upset. And you have to give credit where it’s due. They were at home and did what was needed to secure the win. You can’t be mad at them. Unless you’re a Chiefs fan, then I imagine you’re mad at everyone and every thing.
