This YearThe NFL is in the midst of a genuine offensive revolution. It’s also
the latest phase of an evolution, given that teams have been passing more
frequently and attacking defenses with additional receivers since the early part
of this decade. But this year, something’s up. Way up. Scoring is off the
charts. Quarterbacks across the league—even shitty ones!—are putting up stats
that not too long might have have seemed impossible. Including last night’s
Colts-Patriots game, NFL teams are on record paces for points scored (3,092),
touchdowns (351), and touchdown passes (234). But that’s not all ...State of the
AFC West after Week 2: Patrick Mahomes NFL record 10 TD’s in 2 weeks has Chiefs
the team to beat After two weeks into the NFL season the Raiders are the lone
winless team while the Chiefs look like the team to beat in the AFC West. The
Broncos and Chiefs are both tied at the top of the division with 2-0 records
after the Chiefs beat the Steelers this week and the Broncos barely beat the
Raiders. The Chargers bounced back from their loss last week to the Chiefs with
a win against the Buffalo Bills.StandingsKansas City Chiefs 2-0 (1-0 DIV)Denver
Broncos 2-0 (1-0 DIV)Los Angeles Chargers 1-1 (0-1 DIV)Oakland Raiders 0-2 (0-1
DIV)How we got here:Kansas City Chiefs beat Pittsburgh Steelers 42-37After just
two weeks of the NFL season, the Chiefs look genius to have moved on from Alex
Smith to give the team over to first year starter QB Patrick Mahomes. As if his
4 touchdown performance last week against the Chargers wasn’t enough Womens
Kolton Miller Jersey
, this week he had an astounding 6 touchdown
passes! That is an NFL record with 10 touchdown passes in just the first two
weeks of the season, no player in NFL history has started a season like that.As
for the game against the Steelers itself, what a rollercoaster ride! The Chiefs
dominated the 1st quarter with 3 touchdowns, only to have Pittsburgh tie it up
with 3 touchdowns of their own in the 2nd quarter. The two teams were like a
heavy weight boxing match trading tenacious blows back and forth, but it was the
Chiefs scoring two touchdowns in a row at the end of the 3rd and then again in
the 4th quarter that proved to be the knockout blows.Both teams utilized their
tightends masterfully with the Chiefs Travis Kelce having 7 receptions for 109
yards and 2 touchdowns and Steelers TE Jesse James having 5 receptions for 138
yards and a touchdown. Each team also had a wide receiver with over 100 yards
receiving as well with KC’s Sammy Watkins having 6 catches for 100 yards and
Steelers had JuJu Smith-Schuster with 13! catches for 121 yards. It was
definitely an air it out, free for all in Pittsburgh just as the 42-37 score
would suggest.Next Up: San Francisco 49ers (1-1)San Diego Chargers beat Buffalo
Bills 31-20Unlike the Chiefs/Steelers match up, the score of the Chargers and
Bills game does not tell the whole story because the Chargers dominated this
game despite only winning by 11. Philip Rivers was outstanding going 23 of 27
passing for 256 yards with 3 touchdowns, 2 of which went to RB Melvin Gordon who
also had one rushing for 3 touchdowns on the day himself.The scoring drives for
the Chargers started off with a 10 yard passing touchdown to rookie Mike
Williams ,
followed by a 20 yard touchdown run from Melvin Gordon, then after the Bills got
a field goal the Chargers came back with the pair of passing touchdowns to
Gordon (9 yards, and 2 yards) to complete the impressive first half for LA.
Buffalo did manage to tack on a field goal before the half as well.The Chargers
were up 28-6 at half time before taking their foot off the gas and letting
Buffalo catch up with a 14-3 the rest of the way. The 2nd half scoring drives
were a 1 yard touchdown run by Bills RB Chris Ivory, followed by the Chargers
field goal, and then Buffalo got one last meaningless touchdown at the end on a
reception from Kelvin Benjamin. Those 2nd half points never really mattered
though, the game was never in question for Los Angeles.The Chargers defense also
played well in this game with 5 sacks and 2 interceptions despite not having
their best player DE Nick Bosa who is expected to be out until October. The
Bolts really needed this bounce back victory after being embarrassed last week
by having their own stadium taken over completely by Chiefs fans in their loss
to KC.Next Up: Los Angeles Rams (2-0)Denver Broncos beat Oakland Raiders
20-19The Raiders never should have lost this game to the Broncos, they had it
completely controlled through much of it before falling apart down the stretch.
Oakland QB Derek Carr had a fantastically accurate day with his completing 29 of
32 passes for 288 yards, but only one touchdown on the day. It was the lack of
touchdowns and trying to run the clock out instead that eventually doomed the
Raiders in this one.The game started out with another impressive opening drive
from Jon Gruden Authentic
Marcus Gilchrist Jersey
, but unlike last week against the Rams
this time the Raiders only got a 26 yard field goal. Their next scoring drive
also culminated in a Mike Nugent field goal, that one from 46 yards out. They
then finished off their 1st quarter with a 10 play, 75 yard drive that they
finished off with a Marshawn Lynch touchdown run.The score was only 12-0 after
that though because the extra point was blocked, a huge factor in this game
considering the 20-19 final score. Neither team scored in the 2nd quarter but
the Broncos opened up the 2nd half with their first touchdown drive of the day
to make it 12-7. Still, the Raiders responded great to that one with a quick
touchdown of their own on a laser of a pass from Carr to Seth Roberts from 20
yards out. Sadly that was the last points of the day while the Broncos managed
to up a 39 yard field goal, a 4th and 1 touchdown run from Case Keenum and then
the game winning 36 yard field goal in the final seconds.The gut wrenching loss
for the Raiders sticks them at the bottom of the AFC West with an 0-2 record
while the Broncos have started the season 2-0 despite not playing well at all.
That’s the NFL for you though, just a couple of plays can make all the
difference in winning or losing in this league.Next Up (Raiders): Miami Dolphins
(2-0)Next Up (Broncos): Baltimore Ravens (1-1)
