NFL Week 2 preview

Yardbarker Logo By Chris Mueller of Yardbarker | Slide 1 of 16: Week 1 offered plenty of surprises as well as some huge performances from unlikely sources. Ryan Fitzpatrick and the Bucs went on the road and lit up the Saints, who were a trendy pre-season Super Bowl pick. Sam Darnold and the Jets smashed Detroit in Matt Patricia's head coaching debut, and the Browns finally didn't lose — though they didn't win, either. What will Week 2 bring? Aaron Rodgers' status is still up in the air for a critical early-season divisional showdown against Minnesota, the Panthers and Falcons meet with Atlanta looking to avoid an 0-2 start, Ben Roethlisberger looks to rebound from a miserable opening performance against the Browns, and the Patriots and Jaguars meet in a rematch of last year's AFC Championship Game. It's only Week 2, but the NFL season is very much in full swing.
