Betting.net / Week 2 NFL Review

Week 2 NFL Review

Publish Date: September 21, 2021
Fact checked by: Jesse M Cox

Week two NFL action is behind us and we had another exciting week of games. With Thursday night games now part of the regular rotation, it seems like we have games almost every night of the week which is great if you love football!

We had some teams bounce back from disappointing week one showings, while others that looked good in week one looked awful in week two. The NFL is a tough league and if your team is off to a slow start, remember what Aaron Rodgers once said “R-E-L-A-X.”

What we learned

NFL balance of power

NFL Logo with Football behind it

The NFL looks balanced this year which is great for the fans

The NFL looks very competitive this year with multiple contenders in each division. This is a nice change from recent years where you would always see the same teams like the Patriots and Steelers coming out of the AFC.

In the NFC North, NFC East, AFC North, and AFC east each team already has a loss, while each city believes that their team has what it takes to win the division which is an exciting place to be as a fan.

Top Performances

Bucs Roll

Tom Brady NFL Tampa Bay

Tom Brady has 9 TDs through the first couple of weeks for the Bucs

The Tampa Bay Bucs won their 10th straight game dating back to last year as they dominated the Falcons from start to finish with a 48-25 victory. Tom Brady is off to a great start and has thrown 9 touchdown passes through his first two games which matches his start from his 2007 MVP season.

NFC West Looks Tough

The Cardinals played from behind for most of the day at home vs. the Vikings but were able to come out with a 34-33 win as Minnesota kicker Greg Joseph pushed a chip shot field goal right as time expired.

The 49ers went on the road to Philly and came away with a big 17-11 road win to get to 2-0. The Niners have suffered some bad injury luck on offense but the defense is looking like they did back in 2019 when they made the Super Bowl.

The Rams went on the road to Indianapolis and came away with a 27-24 win as Matthew Stafford threw for 278 yards and 2 scores.

Panthers off to surprising start

The Panthers bailed on Teddy Bridgewater after one year after he wasn’t a great fit for Matt Rhule’s offense and brought in Sam Darnold to lead the offense. Darnold has been impressive so far through two games and the Panthers dominated the Saints 26-7.

Ravens big Night

Pro Bowl NFL

Lamar Jackson led the Ravens had a big win over the Chiefs

The Ravens had a heartbreaking loss to the Raiders in week one but bounced back to beat the reigning AFC champ Kansas City Chiefs 36-35 in a thriller. Lamar Jackson threw for a touchdown and ran for 107 yards and a score and willed the Ravens to a late win by outsourcing the Chiefs 12-0 in the fourth quarter.

Week 2 Disappointments

New Orleans Saints

The Saints had a big win in week one against Green Bay but looked like a different team against the Panthers. Jameis Winston struggled with the Panthers pass rush and the Saints were held to seven points in the lowest scoring offensive game output of the Sean Payton era.

Top Performances

Derek Henry, RB Titans

Titans Helmet

Derek Henry had a huge day running for the Titans rushing for 182 yards and three scores in a big road win for the Titans at Seattle.

Teddy Bridgewater, QB Broncos

Bridgewater continued his strong start with 328 yards and a couple of scores in the Broncos win over the Jaguars. Bridgewater has bounced around the league and had some bad injury luck so it is nice to see him thriving in Denver.

Top Matchups for week 3

Bucs (-1) vs. Rams

The biggest game of week 3 has the Bucs going on the road to the Rams where two NFC Super Bowl favorites face off in what could have playoff seeding implications down the line. Stafford and Brady should put up some big numbers and the team with the ball last could be the winner in this one.

Packers vs. 49ers (-3.5)

The Sunday Night matchup for week 3 pits the Packers at the 49ers which is a rematch of the 2019 NFC championship game. The Packers looked like two totally different teams from week one to week two so it will be interesting to see how they do against the 49ers.
