RnkLW*TeamRecordComments
1.1.Green Bay Packers2-0Woodson's 2 picks and fumble recovery helped overcome a sluggish start in Charlotte. Loss of Collins from already shaky pass defense is a blow.
2.2.New England Patriots2-0Brady's 940 passing yards are the most ever by an NFL QB after 2 weeks. The 2nd most in any 2 game span to Simms' 945. Another unanimous MVP is clearly not out of the question.
3.4.New York Jets2-0Dominant defense. Just enough offense. Same old, same old.
4.5.New Orleans Saints1-1Breesus has yet to be picked off after throwing 22 interceptions last season.
5.9.Houston Texans2-0Overcame Foster aggravating his hamstring injury (unlike most of his fantasy teams).
6.10.Atlanta Falcons1-1Burner Turner is back averaging 6.9 yards per carry.
7.3.Philadelphia Eagles1-1Insert literary joke here about offense undergoing a metamorphosis with Kafka.
8.6.Baltimore Ravens1-1Suffered a major letdown in Tennessee.
9.7.San Diego Chargers1-1Failed to score 3 times in the red zone. Is it time to start questioning Rivers despite the gaudy numbers?
10.11.Pittsburgh Steelers1-1Jackson helped make the defense look young again. Hopefully Collins can do the same on Sunday night.
11.12.Detriot Lions2-0Haven't lost since December 5th.
12.8.Chicago Bears1-1Offensive line is in shambles which is an even bigger problem because of Cutler´┐Żs lack of escape ability.
13.15.Tampa Bay Buccaneers1-1Overcame a 17 point halftime deficit on the road.
14.16.Buffalo Bills2-0Free agent to be Fitzpatrick is making himself some money.
15.17.Washington Redskins2-0Already won as many games at home this year as last year.
16.18.Dallas Cowboys1-1Saved their season in OT in SF. Romo played better with a broken rib and punctured lung.
17.19.New York Giants1-1Ailing secondary aided greatly by pass rush against Bradford. Need more of the same against either Kafka or VY with Vick unlikely to play.
18.13.Arizona Cardinals1-1Ran out of gas late in Washington as often happens when they travel to the east coast.
19.14.Oakland Raiders1-1Schedule makers did them no favors with an early game in the eastern time zone on a short work week after a Monday night road game.
20.28.Tennessee Titans1-1Hasselbeck and Britt were impressive in shocking win over the Ravens as they wait for Johnson to round into form.
21.20.St. Louis Rams0-2Off to an 0-2 start for the 5th consecutive season.
22.22.San Fransisco 49ers1-1Blew a 10 point 4th quarter lead at home.
23.29.Cleveland Browns1-1Hillis has avoided the Madden jinx (so far).
24.23.Jacksonville Jaguars1-1McCown was benched for Gabbert after throwing 4 interceptions. Why was McCown starting in the first place?
25.30.Denver Broncos1-1Moreno may have difficulty regaining his job from McGahee when he returns from injury.
26.25.Miami Dolphins0-2Lost their 6th straight home game and 11th of their last 12.
27.27.Cincinnati Bengals1-1Dalton and Green give them hope for the future despite the loss.
28.24.Minnesota Vikings0-2Frazier has given McNabb a vote of confidence. The rest of the NFC North rejoices.
29.31.Carolina Panthers0-2Newton accounted for 485 total yards including 432 passing yards, but 3 interceptions did him in. Newton topping 400 yards passing in the first 2 weeks even with the interceptions is impressive. He is now responsible for 2 of the 4 games in NFL history in which a rookie has thrown for over 400 yards.
30.26.Indianapolis Colts0-2Manning was as important as everyone thought, maybe more important.
31.21.Kansas City Chiefs0-2Outscored 89 to 10 so far this season. Losing Charles to a torn ACL after slipping on the down marker just before colliding with Lions mascot adds injury to insult.
32.32.Seattle Seahawks0-2Will have to work hard to procure Luck given the meltdowns in Indy and KC. Definitely have the lack of talent to make it happen.
