Thank goodness he only needs one good leg to do this. Most NFL offenses have fallen in love with the death-by-a-thousand-cuts approach. The Falcons are the most talented team in the league until they get to the red zone. If Atlanta doesn't learn to simplify its offense deep in opposing territory, the frustrating losses will continue. They have to be better if they're to remain a leading contender in the uber-competitive NFC South. Cam Newton was an all-around threat, Kawann Short was unblockable, and the Panthers look like a Super Bowl contender again.

It's only one week but sleep on Carolina at your own peril. Nothing new in Pittsburgh, just the Steelers playing down to inferior competition.

Fans can only hope the team gets its act together before a matchup with the Chiefs' high-wire offense. The schedule makers did Baltimore some favors early. The Ravens rolled over the hapless Bills in Week 1 and get a chance to avenge last year's season-ending loss to the Bengals on Thursday night. Joey Bosa is out for a few more weeks and the Chargers' kicking woes have carried over into What did Philip Rivers do to deserve this endless cycle of bad luck?

Alex Smith was surgical in his Redskins debut, while Greg Manusky's defense may finally be putting the pieces together. Washington has the look of a playoff contender. Von Miller apparently didn't like being surpassed as the league's highest-paid defensive player, as he showed no mercy in dominating the Seahawks' offensive line. It's never easy against the Patriots, but if the Texans can withstand a subpar night from Deshaun Watson and remain competitive, they'll be fine going forward.

Khalil Mack can do everything. Only Aaron Rodgers kept this team from making a big jump in our rankings. What a start to the Sam Darnold era! After throwing a pick-6 to open his NFL career, the youngest starting quarterback in the Super Bowl era showed the poise of a year veteran, leading the Jets to a dominant victory on Monday Night Football.

Losing to perhaps the best team in football shouldn't be a major concern for Kyle Shanahan. However, the 49ers' inability to protect Jimmy G should be. Losing to the Dolphins is bad enough. If Marcus Mariota misses any time at all, it'll be a nightmare start to the season for the Titans with Delanie Walker done for the year. Put your hands up if you had Ryan Fitzpatrick throwing for over yards, four touchdowns, and no interceptions.

It's early, but the Buccaneers may be more explosive than we gave them credit for. An important division battle with the rival Cowboys looms. There are positive signs all over for Cincy. Joe Mixon looks ready for a huge workload, Tyler Eifert made it out of a game fully healthy, and A. Green's still doing A. The Cowboys' offense looked as vanilla as ever versus Carolina, with Dak Prescott's performance resembling his second-year form rather than his stellar rookie campaign.

I want to be able to prove to my teammates and these guys here that I can help them. We have a long season ahead and hopefully lots of big wins and big kicks hopefully in my future. Daniel Carlson addresses his three missed field goals: I let my team down. Credit to them because they fought back time and time again. They gave me opportunities. It is disappointing for me personally. The team fought so hard.

We expect to win that and I expect to make those kicks to win the game for the team. That last one was probably more just confidence after missing twice early. That shorter one I should never miss like that. Daniel Carlson missed two field goals in overtime, including one from 35 yards as time expired, and the Minnesota Vikings had to settle for a tie with the Green Bay Packers after rallying from a late point deficit on Sunday.

Rodgers' average time to throw today is 2. The interior D-Line pressure that pushed the pocket and allowed Everson Griffen and Danielle Hunter to wreck havoc in Week 1 hasn't been able to generate much against Aaron Rodgers.

Green Bay's offensive line has allowed Rodgers ample time to make plays from the pocket, and a big, bulky knee brace doesn't appear to be inhibiting Rodgers from scrambling. Special teams blunders for Minnesota cost the Vikings 10 points in the first half. After an early blocked punt, Mike Hughes made up for the special teams blunder with a 46 yard kickoff return that set up the Vikings to go 57 yards in eight plays resulting in a yard touchdown reception for Laquon Treadwell.

Vikings elect to go with all 11 active in the secondary 6 corners, 5 safeties while making DE Tashawn Bower inactive. The Packers like to run quite a bit of hurry-up offense which could inhibit the Vikings from getting as much of a rotation going today on the defensive line. Might be a factor in why the second-year edge rusher is inactive after playing last week against San Francisco and throughout the preseason.

The Minnesota Vikings opened as 2. The line on the game had remained off the board throughout the week at most sportsbooks with Rodgers' status in question. Kirk Cousins , QB. Dalvin Cook , RB. Adam Thielen , WR. Harrison Smith , S.
