NFL: Unexpected Performances Week 2

Posted: September 21, 2011 in Uncategorized

Week two of the NFL is in the books. Surprisingly the Washington Redskins are 2-0 and in first place of the NFC East while the Buffalo Bills are 2-0 and in a three way tie for first with the New England Patriots and the New York Jets.

Cam Newton had another phenomenal game. He threw for 432 yard and one touchdown. He threw three interceptions but when you are throwing 46 passing you are bound to throw some. Unfortunatley Cam could not secure the win but it will only be a matter of time. He will go up against Jacksonville next week in Carolina. Hopefully with the home field advantage he can gain that first NFL career victory. Also he is the second in passing yards with 854 yards and 63% of his passes completed. Hard to believe he is a rookie.

Matt Stafford and the Detroit Lions. People have said if Stafford stays healthy the Lions can be a contending team. Their 48-3 victory against the Tampa Bay Bucs helps support that theory. Stafford had threw 4 touchdowns in that game and close to 300 yards to lead the Lions to a 2-0 record. The defense did its part with having three interceptions, two fumbles, and two sacks.

Week 2 is done. Cam has done a good job on keeping his critics quiet while the Detroit Lions prove why they will be the comeback team of the 2011 season.
