Week 2 is behind us. Here are the Chuck Quick Hits!
WFT 30 – NYG 29
NE 25 – NYJ 6
Jets feel threatened by Giants’ fifth consecutive 0-2 start, but comfortably retain crown as Jetsiest team in town.
DEN 23 – JAX 13
Teddy Bridgewater plays catch with Courtland Sutton for three hours. John Elway sends cupcakes to NFL scheduling department in exchange for Broncos getting to open the season @NYG, @JAX, NYJ.
BUF 35 – MIA 0
More like Tuow Tagovailoa. The 2021 Bills Defense has only allowed 16 points so far. The 2020 Bills Offense scored 29.9 PPG. This team could be scary good.
SF 17 – PHI 11
Eagles bring back the Philly Special with considerably less fruitful results. Twelve plays and 97 yards later the Niners take the lead and never gave it back.
LA 27 – IND 24
Cooper Kupp is everywhere. Colts mercifully halfway done with NFC West gauntlet, but now have to play three straight on the road.
LV 26 – PIT 17
You’re not gonna see many better throws than this one. Vegas now 2-0 against the spread and in real life.
CHI 20 – CIN 17
Justin Fields pitches a few innings of mediocre relief, immediately passes like half these guys.
CAR 26 – NO 7
The Panthers beat the Saints by 19, the Saints beat the Packers by 35, and yet the Packers are 4x more likely than the Panthers to win the Super Bowl according to this. Do with this information what you will.
ARI 34 – MIN 33
We can’t improve on Vikings Radio for this one. #NailedIt
TB 48 – ATL 25
Falcons hang with Bucs for three quarters until Mike Edwards delivers a pair of knockout punches, the latter of which led to our lamest taunting flag of this young season.
TEN 33 – SEA 30
DAL 20 – LAC 17
Through 59 minutes these teams put up over 800 yards, punted just once, and somehow only had a 17-17 tie to show for it. The chaotic, horrendously coached last 30 seconds are creatively and accurately captured here.
BAL 36 – KC 35
GB 35 – DET 17
Pack trail 17-14 at the half, then decide to finally start their season 6 quarters in with this 50-yard laser.
On to week 3!
