2016 NFL Week 2 Review: What We Know and What Is New in Pro Football


Denver harassed Luck.

The great thing about the NFL is that you really never know what’s going to happen from week to week to change the fortunes of a team. We saw some surprising victories in NFL 2016 Week 2, as well as some stunning losses. Plus, one team specifically is in dire need of a starting quarterback. Actually, there are more clubs that need help in that department, but this NFL team goes into week three with a double whammy. Here are 32 quick takeaways from NFL 2016 Week 2. This is what we know and what’s new in pro football.

NFL 2016 Week 2 and Week 3

In NFL 2016 Week 2, we saw a few teams perform overall consistently. In a positive sense, you’ have to say that the AFC’s Houston Texans, New England Patriots, Denver Broncos, and Pittsburgh Steelers showed how could they are. On the other end of the spectrum, you’ve got the Buffalo Bills, Indianapolis Colts, Jacksonville Jaguars, and Cleveland Browns.

In the NFC, the New York Giants, Philadelphia Eagles, and Minnesota Vikings all proved to be resilient. The Chicago Bears, New Orleans Saints, and Washington Redskins are looking vulnerable. There are, of course many challenges for week three.

The Pats need a QB by Thursday, while Denver will have to get extra effort from their D due to Ware’s injury. Houston plays New England, and a win by the Texans would be big. Seattle needs to step up against the 49ers this week, while the Bengals may have a shot against the Broncos with Ware out. The Pittsburgh/Philadelphia game is massive for both teams.
