NFL Week 2 Takeaways

Week 2 of the NFL season was about as wacky as it gets. We take a look at what stood out.

Blown Leads:
Las Vegas, Baltimore and Cleveland decided that week 2 was the week they would find rip away a loss from the jaws of a win. The Raiders blew a 20 point lead because of the combination of lousy playcalling on offense along with the magic of Kyler Murray. The Browns decided to give up 14 points in 60 seconds after Nick Chubb scored a touchdown he shouldn’t have. In Baltimore’s case, yes, they made their share of mistakes but Tua Tagovailoa, Tyreke Hill, and Jaylen Waddle were out and out special.

No Luck at QB:
The Indianapolis Colts have struck out on quarterbacks since Andrew Luck left town. They brought in Phillip Rivers and that only got them so far. Then it was Carson Wentz’ turn and it was painfully apparent that the front office was split on their opinions of Wentz. Now, they are stuck with a Matt Ryan that looks completely done. The 24-0 shutout loss to the Jacksonville Jaguars was embarrassing.

No Cousin(s) of Mine:
Another prime time game, another Kirk Cousins dud. There’s been a lot of excuses made for Cousins over the years. It was Washington’s dysfunctional organization. It was Mike Zimmer. This season there shouldn’t be any excuses because he has one of the best young coaches in Kevin O’Connell. Yet Cousins decided to completely vomit on himself in Philadelphia. Sure, you can argue that the Eagles are better than the Vikings but the score shouldn’t be 24-7.
