The second NFL Sunday is in the books and it was another busy day around the league. After an opening week that left many trying to decipher which teams and performances are for real, and which are not, Week 2 was able to provide a little bit of a clearer picture.
Here's everything you need to know from the second NFL Sunday:
Air & Ground Attack
Baltimore Ravens QB Lamar Jackson silenced his critics in Week 1 showing he can indeed throw the ball with five touchdown passes, and in Week 2 he decided to show he can do it all. Jackson became the first player in NFL history to have at least 250 passing yards and 120 rushing yards in a regular season game as the Ravens defeated the Arizona Cardinals, 23-17.
What Can Brown Do For You?
Antonio Brown, amid all the off-the-field storylines, made his debut with the New England Patriots and did not disappoint. He had four catches for 56 yards and hauled in a touchdown pass as New England routed the Miami Dolphins, 43-0.
Big Ben Breaks Down
Both Ben Roethlisberger and James Conner exited this game for the Pittsburgh Steelers with injuries and they could not overcome them. With Mason Rudolph in at quarterback, the Steelers could not hold off the Seattle Seahawks, falling 28-26 and starting the season 0-2 as uncertainty over Roethlisberger's health lies ahead.
Jimmy G Carves Up 'Cats
The San Francisco 49ers got it done on offense this time, as Jimmy Garappolo rebounded from a poor Week 1 outing and threw for 297 yards and three touchdowns while the Bengals fall to 0-2 despite another solid stat line from Andy Dalton.
Chargers Boot Game in Detroit
The Los Angeles Chargers were without kicker Michael Badgley and relied on punter Ty Long, who missed two field goals in a 13-10 loss to the Detroit Lions.
Aaron and Aaron Show
The Green Bay Packers improved to 2-0 as Aaron Rodgers threw for 209 yards and two touchdowns while Aaron Jones rushed for 116 yards and a touchdown in a 21-16 win over the Vikings.
Jags Gamble Away Game
After Gardner Minshew led a 14-play, 63-yard fourth quarter drive to score a touchdown with 3:06 remaining, the Jaguars were poised to tie the game and set up a potential overtime. But head coach Doug Marrone decided to go for a two-point conversion and failed to convert, handing the Houston Texans a 13-12 victory.
Buffalo Best in New York
For the second consecutive week, the Buffalo Bills visited Metlife Stadium and left with a victory. This time it was against the New York Giants as they cruised to a 28-14 victory behind Josh Allen, who threw and ran for a touchdown.
Colts Burn Titans in Nashville
In a game that was preceded by a pregame fire on the field, the Tennessee Titans melted down in an ugly 19-17 loss to the Indianapolis Colts. Jacoby Brissett threw three touchdowns for the Colts on just 146 yards passing.
Dak Attack Does it Again
Dak Prescott again showed why he's deserving of a big contract extension and also silenced Redskins CB Josh Norman by tossing three touchdowns on 269 yards of passing. Ezekiel Elliott rushed for 111 yards and a touchdown and the Cowboys rolled past the Washington Redskins in a 31-21 victory and are looking like one of the top tier teams in the NFC.
It Ain't Brees-y in New Orleans
New Orleans Saints QB Drew Brees was forced to leave the game early in the first quarter with a thumb injury in a rematch of last year's controversial NFC Championship Game. With Brees out, the Saints struggled to keep up with the Los Angeles Rams in a 27-9 loss.
Mahomes Second to None
The Kansas City Chiefs scored 28 unanswered points, all in the second quarter, en route to a 28-10 road win over the Oakland Raiders. QB Patrick Mahomes threw for 443 yards and four touchdown passes as he continues to cement himself as the best quarterback in the league.
Eddy > Cody
The Chicago Bears appear to have found a kicker after their relentless offseason search. Eddy Pineiro capped a fourth quarter comeback over the Denver Broncos by splitting the uprights on a game-winning 53-yard field goal.
In a game where Julio Jones became the Atlanta Falcons' all-time leading receiving yards leader, he was also the hero. Jones caught a fourth-and-3 screen pass with 2:20 left in the game and ran it 54 yards for the game-winning touchdown to lift the Falcons over the Philadelphia Eagles, 24-20.
