NFL Quick Hits From Week 2

Nobody circles the wagons like the Buffalo Bills.

SARATOGA, NY – Sure it’s only Week 2, but there’s a lot to talk about after watching the second weekend of football this fall. From Johnny Football seeing his first regular season game action as a professional football player to the Seattle Seahawks losing their first game since December.

But where to begin?

Seattle Seahawks fall to the San Diego Chargers: For many NFL analysts, the Seattle Seahawks are the clear favorites to repeat as Super Bowl champions. If you were to ask any Seattle fan, they would say that their team is going to go undefeated. But that all changed Sunday. The San Diego Chargers answered the call as they were able to keep up with a tough Seattle football team. So what’s next for the Seahawks? Will they bounce back against the Denver Broncos in six days? Time will tell.

The Buffalo Bills hold sole possession of 1st place in the AFC East: Ladies and gentlemen, the Buffalo Bills are undefeated. Say what you want, but they beat two quality teams thus far in the Chicago Bears and the Miami Dolphins. This team is lead by a stout defense and playmakers on offense. If EJ Manuel limits his mistakes and doesn’t have to do too much, this team can win some games. Buffalo has to keep the pedal to the medal Sunday when they face the San Diego Chargers at home.

Jets Packers Football

Johnny Manziel saw the field: Hold your horses. No Johnny Football didn’t take over the starting job in Cleveland from Brian Hoyer. Manziel attempted one pass, but it was incomplete, and handed off a few balls. Those who are waiting for Manziel to burst onto the scene in the NFL will have to wait another day.

The New Orleans Saints are 0-2: The fact that the Saints have yet to win a game is pretty shocking. The fact that they lost to the Cleveland Browns this past Sunday might be worse. If the Saints want to turn this ship around, they’re going to have to figure out how to play during the fourth quarter.

Oh, New York Jets: The Jets had an 18-point lead in the first quarter and still found a way to lose to the Green Bay Packers this past Sunday. Not to mention, the Jets had a game-tying touchdown nullified because a timeout was called by New York’s offensive coordinator Marty Mornhinweg; even though technically he can’t call one. Either way, the Jets should be a competitive team to watch this season. The AFC East race is going to be tighter than everyone thought before the season started.
