NFL Week 2 Results
I've gotta say, being a Detroit Lions fan, it was a pretty awesome weekend for NFL football.
Who knows, this might be the only win we get all season. We have to savor these small victories any chance we get. It honestly didn't look like it was going to happen for a little bit there.
Towards the end of the first half it looked like the Lions were going to live up to their reputation and throw away all the good stuff they did early in the game.
Defense was crushing it, offense was pretty on point. There was a lot to like about the way the Lions were playing in the first quarter. Then the second quarter came and they started to fall apart.
Thankfully, even though they weren't able to totally clamp down the Washington Commanders, they were able to score more than them to retain the lead and come away with the victory.
It was a bit stressful to say the least. You never stop cheering for the Lions until the final whistle because you just never know.
There were actually quit a few close games this past weekend. Closer than the Lions game. In fact, there were about five or six games that were decided by less than five points.
The Jets edged out the Browns by one point, The Chiefs beat the Chargers by three points, as well as The Patriots over The Steelers, The Giants over the Panthers, and The Cowboys over the Bengals. Who saw that one coming?
The Raiders and Cardinals gave us the only overtime game of the week with Arizona coming out on top.
It was a good week for my wife and I in terms of our fantasy teams, but I will get to that more later in the week.
You will have to check back to catch all the updates on that. I probably spoiled it a bit there for you though.
I'm actually shocked to find myself saying that The Lions were one of the highest scoring teams this week. How often does that happen? Paired with the win, there is a lot to be excited about heading into Week 3.
We will see what happens...
