Re: NFL 2021 Week 2 Thread

Thursday Night Football

New York Giants at Washington Football Team, 5:20 p.m., NFL Network

Both of these NFC East rivals opened the season with losses, but Washington also lost its starting quarterback, Ryan Fitzpatrick, in the first game of the season. Neither team wants to be 0-2.


Sunday early games

New England Patriots at New York Jets, 10 a.m., CBS

The AFC East rivals with rookie quarterbacks both opened with losses in Week 1. Which team and which quarterback will get the win in Week 2?

Denver Broncos at Jacksonville Jaguars, 10 a.m., CBS

The Urban Meyer did not get off to a great start in Week 1. Can the Jaguars produce at better result at home in Week 2?

Buffalo Bills at Miami Dolphins, 10 a.m., Fox

The Bills entered the season with a lot of Super Bowl hype. Can they show they are a contender in the AFC in Week 2?

San Francisco 49ers at Philadelphia Eagles, 10 a.m., Fox

Jalen Hurts and the Eagles would love to open the season 2-0 with a big win at home over the 49ers.

Los Angeles Rams at Indianapolis Colts, 10 a.m., Fox

The Colts get to face another NFC West team in Week 2 after struggling to stop the Seahawks in Week 1.

Las Vegas Raiders at Pittsburgh Steelers, 10 a.m., CBS

The Steelers' defense impressed in Week 1, showing that perhaps people wrote off Pittsburgh's chances prematurely.

Cincinnati Bengals at Chicago Bears, 10 a.m., Fox

The Bengals are 1-0 after an overtime win over the Vikings. Can they take down another NFC North team in Week 2?

Houston Texans at Cleveland Browns, 10 a.m., CBS

The Texans surprised the NFL with their big Week 1 win. A win at Cleveland would be a shocker.

New Orleans Saints at Carolina Panthers, 10 a.m., Fox

Jameis Winston impressed in Week 1. Can he keep it up for the Saints in Week 2?

Sunday late games

Minnesota Vikings at Arizona Cardinals, 1:05 p.m., Fox

The Arizona Cardinals shined in Week 1. Will Minnesota be able to slow down Kyler Murray and company?

Atlanta Falcons at Tampa Bay Buccaneers, 1:05 p.m., Fox

These NFC South rivals face off in a Week 2 tilt that seems to really favor the defending champions.

Tennessee Titans at Seattle Seahawks, 1:25 p.m., CBS

The Titans did not look good at home in Week 1, but Derrick Henry and Tennessee could turn things around in a hurry.

Dallas Cowboys at Los Angeles Chargers, 1:25 p.m., CBS

The Cowboys have had some extra rest after playing on Thursday to open the season.


Sunday Night Football

Kansas City Chiefs at Baltimore Ravens, 5:20 p.m., NBC

This game could be very interesting. Which quarterback will deliver in the clutch? Which defense will step up?

Monday Night Football

Detroit Lions at Green Bay Packers, 5:15 p.m., ESPN

The Packers did not impress in Week 1, but a visit from the Lions might be just what Green Bay needs to turn things around in Week 2.

Should not directly paste the 506 maps either.

That site owner doesn't like it and it's a great site.

Just post the link to their site for reference:

Bills @ Dolphins would have been a better game than Giants @ WAS on TNF.

Please TEN get your S together and pull off a upset in SEA.

The Titans are most likely going to lose to Seattle. Taylor Lewan was blown up by Budda Baker.


The offense didn't practice together in training camp due to injuries, Covid, and resting Henry. I have a feeling that it's going to be a long season for the Titans, but maybe they'll surprise me Sunday.

Now here is a 30 for 30-ish list. About as ugly as you can get.

As the Washington Football Team's QB quest enters Year 29, ESPN Analytics ranks its past 30 starters

^ I know I'm biased, but Alex Smith is way too low on that list.

So New England gets Bucs/Falcons because of Brady rather than in-division Dolphins/Bills, which should also be a better game?

Not really the point of the piece, but sure. That just shows how shitty the QBs have been for decades.

The original list is strictly analytics-based; no intangibles. Jon Keim (ESPN's WTF beat reporter) says the same thing. Brunell is underrated on this list as well for similar reasons.

My favorite quote in the piece re: the disaster that was John Beck:

"He thought he was going to be the guy," former receiver Santana Moss said. "He sucked ass; I won't lie to you. I broke my hand and didn't play the [final two] games with him. Nothing better could have happened to me, because I didn't have to play with this guy.

Well at least they had one good RG III year and a couple of good Kirk Cousins seasons. Looks better than the many many "Browns" years between Bernie Kosar and Baker Mayfield.

Not by much and not meant to be a comparison with the Browns situation which is no doubt shitty too.

And they seem to have their guy.

Kirk is a reasonably competent guy you start either while you look diligently for someone better or as a backup to your injured starter at best. I am not remotely a big Brad Johnson fan but the answer to John Keim's hypothetical at the end of the column is clearly Johnson.

Yeah, but the end result is what matters and during the Browns/Kosar years - Washington won 2 Super Bowls.
Sure, it was a long time ago - but it's not like the Browns were tearing it up during Washington's down years. At least you have some memories.

Meanwhile after many sucky years the Browns move to Baltimore and they win 2 SBs and were a decent contender for a chunk of years.
Browns fans are LONG overdue for a decent team.

Well, that's because I'm old.

Again, it's not meant to be a comparison. And I did say "about as ugly as you can get." Which leaves room....for the Browns. Of course Browns fans are long overdue for a decent team (same with Lions fans). Who is arguing against that?

I assume Washington has to get in the Watson sweepstakes if he gets cleared and that move could put them in Super Bowl contention.

I stepped away to the washroom and apparently missed a gruesome injury.
Anyone see it as it happened?

Ballsy to run it there w/ no TOs.

They woke up after those first 2 possessions.

Great fucking throw and catch. That's almost Big Ben/Santonio Holmes level of TD.
