The second week of the NFL is almost over. There have been some pretty amazing games this week already. We wanted to break down our biggest surprises after week 2 of the season. There were some shocking things that happened this week that we wanted to discuss. I am losing right now in Fantasy Football because Gardner Minshew is a dog!
Five Biggest Surprises of Week 2 in the NFL
James Robinson the small school back goes for 100
James Robinson the former Illinois State back is looking like a stud in the NFL after just two weeks. The Jaguars and Gardner Minshew are turning it up. They lost yesterday to the Titans, but if you are a Jaguars fan you have to love where they are right now. They released and traded some of their best players and they are still in games competing. James Robinson is a large part of that success. He finished the game yesterday with 102 yards on the ground and 1 touchdown on just 16 carries.
Who said Josh Allen was a garbage quarterback? You may want to go look at the tape this week
Josh Allen looked like a Franchise Quarterback this week. He was the best thing smoking in Miami this week. Allen finished the game with 417 yards passing his all-time high and four touchdowns passing which is also a high. He hit three new players on the Bills for touchdowns. Reggie Gilliam, Stefon Diggs and Gabriel Davis all caught touchdown passes which were their first on the Bills. Allen looked sharp and he is shutting down the critics.
What the hell are the Eagles doing?
The Eagles look like crap. They were smashed at home by the Rams. Jared Goff had his way with the Eagles. I mean he threw for 267 yards and finished the game 20-27 with three touchdowns. The Eagles are crumbling. Howie Roseman is a great GM, but man I do not know what is going on right now. Next week they have Joe Burrow and the Bengals. If they lose three in a row, someone needs to be fired or cut.
Cam Newton looks pretty darn impressive on the Patriots
Many thought the Patriots were going to be worse without Tom Brady but to be honest they are better. Cam Newton is fun to watch, and the Patriots were in scoring distance last night, but Josh McDaniels called a horrible play call. The Seahawks and everyone on the internet knew they were going to call Cam Newton’s number. If they would have faked it and did anything else they would have won the game. Cam is legit though, the Patriots deserve respect.
Kyler Murray needs to be in the MVP race
Kyler Murray has been playing lights out. I think right now, Russell Wilson, Kyler Murray and Josh Allen have to be in the mix for the MVP award. Wilson and Allen have been impressive, but Murray is playing at an extremely high level right now. He finished yesterday’s game over the Washington Football Team with 286 yards passing and just 1 passing touchdown, but they won by 15. Murray is a play maker.
