NFL 2020 Week Two Results Packers Run Over Detroit

Week Two Big Wins for the Rams, Packers & Buccs in the NFC.

It’s still early days but already two teams in the NFC have put down their markers with the Rams following up last weeks hard-fought win Dallas with a very impressive road victory in Philadelphia who incidentally are now 0-2. Luckily for them, the NFC East doesn’t look too strong this year.

It’s the Aaron show again!

Green bay followed up last weeks win with another high scoring one, this time it was the Aaron Jones show as he gashed the Detroit defense rushing for 168 yards and a couple of TDs. If that wasn’t enough he was also Green Bays leading receiver and he added his third TD of the game thanks to a 7-yard scoring reception. That other Aaron guy had a quieter game than last week but chipped in a couple of TDs also as they rattled up 42 points.

Brady on the board.

Down in Tampa, a certain Mr Brady picked up his first win a QB of the Buccaneers without playing particularly well. Stats wise his performance was nothing to write home about 217 yards one TD one Interception. However they still never looked in any danger against a Panthers team who turned the ball over 4 times. We feel the best of Brady is still to come and when he finally clicks with his new offensive weapons watch out!

Watch out for those Rams.

The L.A Rams were not on many peoples list of Superbowl contenders (including ours as we had them pegged for a 9-7 season) coming into the season given the strength of the NFC West and the big question marks against Jared Goff. Well, the 2016 No 1 draft pick silenced any critics on Sunday with a near-flawless performance throwing 3 TDs in their impressive road win. The Rams take on Buffalo next week and if he can get a win there then expect the teams Superbowl odds to shrink dramatically.

A Thriller in Seattle.

New England’s trip to Seattle was probably the nights biggest game as far as neutral fans are concerned anyway and boy it was a cracker 65 total points nearly 900 yards of combined offense and a last few second goal-line stand to decide it! Both teams played really well in this one and its a shame there had to be a loser, however, cometh the hour (or last 10 seconds on the occasion) cometh the Seattle defense who stopped Cam Newtons last-ditch attempt from the one-yard line. Despite this loss, it looks like the forecast demise of New England minus TB12 is a bit premature.

Other points of interest. 

The Falcons need to learn to play to the final whistle after giving up a 15 point lead in the final 8 minutes in Dallas, finally succumbing 40-39 thanks to a field goal which crossed the bar as time expired. Now, what was that team that gave up a record lead to the Patriots in the Superbowl called again… Oh!

Speaking of going to sleep Mitchell Trubisky after a brighter start went right off the boil against the Giants in a typical game of two halves. Luckily for them, Big Blue are pretty rubbish hence they held on. On his showing over the last two games, we cant see Trubisky keeping the starter’s job!

The Chargers gave the Chiefs a surprisingly tough game and Justin Herbert looked rather good, especially being thrown in at the last minute. We expected him to take over from Tyrod Taylor sometime during the season, but on this showing, there is no way you can bench him without at least giving him another chance.

Result of the week

Has to go to The Raiders who made their first appearance in their $2bn new stadium. It was closer than the score suggests and came down to ball control. Shame the fans were not allowed in one can only imagine how the Black Hole would have erupted at the final whistle!

Fitzmagic Overshadowed

Finally, we will finish off with a quick look at the big AFC East clash (seriously it’s a big game now) where the Bills held on against the Dolphins thanks to a career night from Josh Allen, who threw for 417 yards and four touchdowns! Fitzpatrick had a great night too not only throwing for 328 yards and 2 TDs but also no interceptions. Not often you can say that about him!
