Top 10 Most Surprising NFL Teams of Week 2 (2020)Well another week is in the books. We had some surprising performances and injuries were a common theme throughout the week with a TON of star players going down. But we still go on. Let’s discuss the big shockers of the week below.
Dallas to me is the biggest shocker of the week. I mean this is like Chiefs/Texans 2.0 Dallas in the first half was imploding nothing was going right but then all of a sudden they woke up big time. Dak was lights out to rally the Cowboys from what looked like instant loss and questions surrounding Mike McCarthy are quiet at least for now. Zuerlein was also absolute Clutch especially with that lucky onside kick that point I was certain Dallas could pull out a win after Atlanta didn't know what an onside kick even was
Congratulations, Atlanta Falcons, you one-upped yourself blowing a 29-10 lead!
This is honestly worse than 28-3. Just when it was getting stale, nope, you one-upped the Texans and yourself. You had Dallas imploding in the first half. America was laughing at them as Mike McCarthy was looking like he was going to be a one-season experiment. But then you just had to let Dak go off, scoring what, 40 points in one half? Surprised they aren't at #1? I don't blame you, and they could arguably be the biggest surprise, but this is the Falcons. It's quite clear they've learned NOTHING from 28-3. This is what happens when you forget what's an onside kick and keep Dan Quinn 3 years too long.
The Colts somehow beat Minnesota after getting exploited by Gardner Minshew they got lucky this week. Kirk Cousins decided to revert back to the Cousins of old. The Colts offense isn't great but that's okay. Jonathan Taylor finally had a breakthrough game like Clyde Edwards. While it was a death by field goal for the Vikings the Colts built a 25 point lead and gave the Vikings a Beatdown that I didn't expect honestly
I honestly did not see that coming. The Bolts definitely caught the Chiefs off guard. And this is without Tyrod Taylor who was out with chest pains of some sort. Justin Herbert actually was better than I thought. They had the upset in their hands they HAD this game won. But answer me this why do you PUNT on 4th and 1 in OT? Against the Chiefs? You gotta go for that next time.That's okay even with no fans allowed you still don't have any to begin with
I gotta be honest we were on our way to losing this game. The Chiefs were playing down to their competition and all but dead in the water. But then you realize this is Patrick Mahomes and he doesn't go down without a fight. Slowly but surely he clawed the team back into the game thanks to Harrison Butker making several long 58 yard kicks like nothing. Perhaps the Defending champions will not have an easy road after all. Just wow that game was hard to watch.
Minnesota what was that? Yeah your team is terrible. Kirk Cousins is back to being Kirk Cousins that everyone bashed with 113 yards and 3 interceptions a 15 passer rating and safeties in back to back weeks. Like dear god this game was hard to watch. You had barely anything redeeming as Jonathan Taylor ran all over you guys. Do you miss Danielle Hunter and Anthony Barr yet? Because this could be a LONG season for you guys.
I gotta say I did not expect that from you guys. The Saints were the first opponent to play in the brand new Allegiant Stadium and well... The Raiders won. The new black hole didn't have fans but I'm sure Raiders nation loves this win. To be fair Drew Brees isn't what he used to be. He's in the 2015 Peyton Manning stage of his career we are witnessing the sad decline of a legend. But the Raiders May be legit now. That's an impressive win I'll give you that
I gotta be honest I didn't see that coming. The Rams are somehow 2-0. To be fair here the Eagles are already severely banged up but still I wouldn't believe it if you told me they'd be 2-0 back in like July. I still can't tell if they're good again since it's early but this looks promising. The NFC West is really gonna be a bloodbath battle isn't it
San Francisco makes it here not because of what they did on the field but how many players were taken off of it. San Francisco is desperately challenging Philly for the most banged up team in the league. They're already without George Kittle and Deebo Samuel And here's a list of players they lost this week:
That's a lot of big names going down. You can thank the Gods you were playing the Jets and not an actual team. The Jets are so pathetically horrible you STILL DESTROYED them in spite of those injuries.
Like seriously was Sunday NFL doomsday or something? You guys got hit HARD. Don't worry guys Week 4 will be PRACTICE SQUAD BOWL!
The Bengals May have lost but man Joe Burrow looks damn impressive. Unfortunately this is the Bengals so they find incredible ways to lose the game. Cleveland got away with this one but the Bengals can at least have comfort in their #1 overall pick. Please don't let him rot on this cursed franchise
