NFL 2022 Week Two Results Bills Make Another Statement

Week Two opened with a bit of a classic as the Chiefs came from behind to win a tight game against their likely biggest AFC West rivals The Chargers. It could have been different though had Justin Herbert not thrown a pick-six. Both these sides look odds on for a postseason place even at this early stage.

However, it was the Bills who made the biggest impression, following up last week’s impressive performance in LA with a resounding beatdown on the Tennessee Titans. They have dominated with the pass so far. Josh Allen has thrown for 614 yards & 7 TDs already.

The surprise result of the week in the AFC came in Jacksonville, where the Jags shut out Indianapolis 24-0. This was Colt’s 8th consecutive defeat in Jacksonville so it’s hard to tell if the Jags are actually good or if Indianapolis is jinxed. Still, Trevor Lawrence had a near-perfect night going 25/30 and scoring 2 TDs. His final rating of 121.5 is his best NFL showing to date.

The craziest game of the night was Miami’s stunning comeback in Baltimore.  The Dolphins were 35-14 down going into the fourth quarter but then Tua threw 4 TDs to snatch the win. That Tyreek Hill signing is paying for itself already!

In The NFC

Things were a little more sedate in the NFC and sadly the big story of the night was Trey Lance succumbing to a season-ending injury. The 49ers holding onto Jimmy G looks like an inspired decision now.

In The NFC South Tampa came out on top in a defensive slugfest, which had a free fight thrown in for the fan’s entertainment.  The Buccs will be without Mike Evans next week thanks to his starring role in the mini brawl.  Given their offensive injury list, this is something they could have done without!

If you want to see the scuffle you can find it on Youtube. 

Green Bay put last week’s below-par performance behind them by taking care of their oldest rivals the Chicago Bears with the minimum of fuss. Their offense still looks suspect, however, when you have Aaron Rodgers under centre you can get away with the odd dropped pass or three.

It was a good night for the Packers as their likely main divisional rival Minnesota got soundly beaten. The Eagles never looked threatened in this one and they might just be rather good this year.
