NFL Week 2: What We Learned In The AFC [OPINION]
Now that Week 2 of the 2012 NFL season is in the books, what exactly did we learn, if anything?
NY Jets– The Pittsburgh Steelers are not the Buffalo Bills. We can only hope that the Tebow watch in New York hasn’t begun.
New England– The Patriots may have a few issues that people didn’t see. Hard to believe they lost to the Cardinals. Where was Wes Welker and Gronk?
Buffalo– CJ Spiller may turn out to be the player they hoped he would be, at least he is showing it now. Let’s don’t get too carried away, they beat the Chiefs.
Miami: **See Oakland Raiders**
Baltimore: The offense can’t keep depending on the defense, it need to be more consistent. And no matter how bad the replacements are, keep it to yourself, Joe.
Cincinnati: The Bengals showed signs that they are still the same team as last year but they did let the Browns hang around. Still early.
Cleveland: Like I said last week ], the loss of Joe Hayden proved to be huge as the defense was not as it was it week one. Trent Richardson looked great and Weeden improved. Can the offense and the defense play well in the same game?
Pittsburgh: Nothing has changed my opinion from last week, the Steelers are one of the best in the AFC and it show in the way they out classed the Jets.
Houston: The Texans have played Miami and Jacksonville in the first two weeks. I am not saying I am not a believer but lets see what happens Sunday in Denver.
Tennessee: Jake Locker was injured, Chris Johnson is still not the Chris Johnson they paid and the defense looked horrible. Can it get worse?
Indianapolis: The Colts turned it around, only a week later. Maybe it was the crowd and maybe it was Andrew Luck but in his second game, not only did Luck get his first win but he got his first comeback win. Coincidence?
Jacksonville: For every good thing the Jags did last week, they reversed it this week. Gabbert still looks good in the pocket and that is a positive. Now if they can run more than 16 plays next week.
San Diego: The Chargers are 2-0 with wins over the Raiders and the Titans. This week when they play Atlanta we will see exactly what the Chargers are.
Denver: 4 turnovers in the first quarter sealed the Broncos fate against the Falcons. But they almost came back and won. The Broncos are still better than people think and Manning still has it.
Kansas City: Everyone thought Miami was going to be the worst team in the NFL, everyone was wrong.
Oakland: New owner + new GM + new coach = no difference. Also in week 2. How do you make Miami look good?
