Red’s 2022 NFL Weekly Roundup – Week 2

Not quite as wild a weekend as Week 1 but with a few surprises nonetheless. Some teams already look to be in trouble and some are rising to the occasion. And as always most are just somewhere in the middle of the pack.

  1. Buffalo Bills – In back to back weeks, the Bills have knocked off the defending champs and last season’s No. 1 seed in the AFC. And have hardly broken a sweat in so doing.
  2. Kansas City Chiefs – Did not look great against the Chargers, but someone is going to have to convince Red the Chiefs don’t belong very near the top.
  3. Philadelphia Eagles – This team looks very ready to play in dispatching the Vikings with ease.
  4. Miami Dolphins – Tua tosses 7 count ’em 7 touchdowns. Holy crap. Maybe teams will start to cover Tyreek Hill now.
  5. Tampa Bay Bucs – Unimpressive but still one of the undefeated. Real test comes in two weeks against the Chiefs still seeking revenge for Superb Owl butt-whipping.
  6. New York Giants – Hey, Red is as surprised as you are.
  7. Baltimore Ravens – Best of the 1-1 teams with very tough loss to Miami.
  8. Green Bay Packers – Snapped back and took care of business against the Bears who might be awful.
  9. Los Angeles Chargers – Second best 1-1 team in the AFC. Need to find a way to win close games.
  10. Los Angeles Rams – Had a tough time putting away a pretty bad Falcons squad. Still plenty of talent here.
  11. Arizona Cardinals – Red may be generous here but they found a way to win a tough game on the road.
  12. San Francisco 49ers – May have come to their senses with Jimmy G. back under center.
  13. New England Patriots – Enjoy it while it lasts.
  14. Pittsburgh Stealers – See New England Patriots.
  15. Denver Broncos – Okay you beat the Texans. Big Whoop!
  16. Detroit Lions – When was the last time the Lions scored 36 points? Red would look it up but where is the fun in that?
  17. Seattle Seahawks – 1-1 but on life support until the offense remembers that the point of the game is to score more points than the other team.
  18. New Orleans Saints – Field goal, punt, punt, punt, punt, punt, fumble, interception, interception, interception, touchdown, fumble, downs is not going to win many games.
  19. Jacksonville Jaguars – Skunking the Colts had to feel good. Maybe the Jags defense is for real.
  20. New York Jets – Red may be charitable but Jets fans have to be thinking – our team might not completely suck this year.
  21. Washington Commanders – Tough loss to the Lions does not portend well.
  22. Minnesota Vikings – Yawn.
  23. Dallas Cowboys – Grudging respect for knocking of the Bengals who look lost.
  24. Cincinnati Bengals – Looking lost.
  25. Cleveland Browns – Losing to the Jets is never a good sign.
  26. Chicago Bears – Will beat another good team some day. But not any day soon.
  27. Tennessee Titans – Is the Tannehill Reign of Terror over? Malik did nothing to ensure that on Sunday.
  28. Las Vegas Raiders – Nothing good happening in the desert right now.
  29. Atlanta Falcons – Showing some signs of life – protoplasmic in nature.
  30. Houston Texans – Could have beaten the Broncos but for a series of blown coverages in the fourth quarter. Red was rooting for another tie because no team has ever gone 0-0-2.
  31. Carolina Panthers – Checking for a pulse. Still checking.
  32. Indianapolis Colts – Red is pretty sure that you can never win with zero points.
