Football made a comeback after a dismal 2020 season. The first two weeks painted a picture of the kind of season fans can expect.
NFL Freshman will make significant contributions to their teams as week three demonstrated. Rookie WR Ja’Marr Chase, Cincinnati Bengals; WR Rashod Bateman and Tylan Wallace, Baltimore Ravens; WR Dyami Brown, Washington Football Team; RB Najee Harris, Pittsburgh Steelers have started for their teams — but was it too soon?
The Jags Trevor Lawrence only completed 42 of 84 passes, four touchdowns, and five interceptions over the first two weeks. Bengals Ja’Marr Chase completed seven receptions for 155, and his longest reception was for 50-yards and he scored two touchdowns in the game.
Bears QB Andy Dalton, Eagles Carson Wentz, and Texans Tyrod Taylor left the game in Week 2 with injuries.
But most of all, the fans are back! Stadiums were shaking as the twelfth man came to their respective stadiums and did their jobs. The Big 10, Pack 12, and the NFL stadiums across America were bursting at the seams with football spirit.
The GOAT, Tom Brady, moved his Bucs past the Falcons to go 2-0 in week 2. The Seahawks and Russell Wilson lost a heartbreaker to the Titans in overtime, while the Cowboys and Dak Prescot broke even with a win over the Chargers.
In Week 3, the Bears went against Baker Mayfield and the Bengals in Cincinnati. They lost 23-6. Justin Fields was sacked nine times. Andy Dalton is still a question mark to start in Week 4. The Bears’ defense appeared to be out of step.
This year in the NFL, it appears that on any given Sunday, any team can win.
