The Browns are up big on the Ravens early. I didn't see that coming. They were leading 20-2 the last time I looked.

Garoppolo has already thrown 3 Td passes and the Pats are manhandling Miami. At this rate, Jimmy G will have more TD passes than the 2015 Vikings before Brady comes back.

Meanwhile, the Giants and Saints, 2 teams that combined for a zillion yards and points in one game last year are tied at 0:

You never know what NFL Sunday will bring...

After less than two full games in 2016, Mike Wallace already has more TD catches than he had as a Viking.

Sigh.

Great game with Titans and Lions, but the replay booth missed a HUGE fumble on Stafford getting sacked, they thought he was down but he wasn't and it never got reviewed because it is under 2 minutes.

Bengals Steelers. Horrible review at the end

Lewis missed a challenge too but at the end dude clearly had a knee down as he was going down. Announcers said it was a down ball, old ref said he was down, morelli said it was a fumble

Suprised that bengals didnt challenge that TD. Also, bad non reversal at the end.

I just like that the "crappy" titans team thay the vikings beat went into detroit and beat them. While the "awesome" jaguars team that the packers barely squeeked by is getting stomped by the lowly chargers.

Ravens have a better QB that can throw the ball accurate the the field. I'm not surprised. at all.

Flacco isn't that good. His stats are mediocre. He has an arm but he managed to sucker the team out of all that cash based on one hot streak that came on at the right time. Other than that he's pretty pedestrian

Its week 2, early NFL is crazy, besides, transitive property doesn't work in the NFL.

But keep in mind, it was 112 degrees in week 1.

Youve been using it all week... but it doesnt matter. All the analysts and 80% of the country have picked the packers to win. So we will see what happens.

Side note. If this is "our year" (same goes for the packers) its going to be a tough one. A lot of very good dominate teams in both conferences. Going to be a tough road for both super bowl teams this year.

Hes better than anything we have had since Favre or Culpepper.

Considerably better. It's not just about stats. They're a useful measurement that only goes so far.

I think it's a misunderstanding of what Flacco has brought to the Ravens to suggest he was rewarded for just one season's performance that resulted in a Super Bowl win. The timing of that worked out well for him but they've had just one losing season with him as their QB and they've made the postseason in most of the others. The Ravens could have easily gone to back-to-back Super Bowls if Lee Evans hadn't dropped a perfectly-thrown TD pass from Flacco near the end of the 2012 AFC Championship game against the Patriots.

He has also brought them to another AFCC Game against Pittsburgh.

I agree Flacco isn't that good. He is better than what we had lately also I think if someone like Ben Roethlisberger healthy would of taken the Ravens to the superbowl for 4 straight years.
