Here’s our 2017 Week Two NFC Review. There are four teams that are winless with one coming from each division. In the East, it’s the New York Giants, the North it’s the Chicago Bears, the South it’s the New Orleans Saints, and the West the San Francisco 49ers. There are just three 2-0 teams in the NFC with two, the Atlanta Falcons and Carolina Panthers, coming from the South. The other team is the North’s Detroit Lions. One other team is undefeated. That’s the Tampa Bay Buccaneers who have played just one game due to the hurricane. Here’s a quick snippet on how each NFC team performed in week two.

Last Word: 2017 Week Two NFC Review
Our 2017 Week Two AFC Review ends with the observation that 50 percent of the teams in the NFC have posted record of 1-1. That should make for a very interesting week three. Which winless team has the best chance of finally getting a “W?” It looks like the Giants do, as they play the Eagles. Undefeated team that’s most likely to suffer a loss would be the Lions, as they host the Falcons.
