The first week of the 2016 NFL season was full of upsets, jaw-dropping plays and incredible games! Week 2 will be even more phenomenal, with an epic grudge matches and so much more! Click to find out all the details on all the major matches.
What a wild start to the new NFL season! Teams like the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, Oakland Raiders and Detroit Lions are all undefeated, while the Dallas Cowboys, Arizona Cardinals, and Carolina Panthers all started it things off with a loss. Yikes. Week 2 is “redemption week” for a lot of teams, and Carolina will want to even up the score by securing a win at home over the San Francisco 49ers.
The big story of the week has to be the match between the Green Bay Packers and the Minnesota Vikings. It’s a 55-year-long feud that stems back to the days of Vince Lombardi (the guy the NFL championship trophy is named after.)
Both Minnesota and Green Bay won their opening games. After Teddy Bridgewater, 23, suffered a knee injury in the preseason, Shaun Hill, 36, led the Vikings to a 25-16 win over the Tennessee Titans. Meanwhile, Aaron Rodgers, 32, and the Packers snuck by the Jacksonville Jaguars, 27-23. Which team will suffer their first loss of the season?
The New England Patriots didn’t need Tom Brady, 39, to get by the Cardinals – they just needed Arizona’s Chandler Catanzaro, 25, to miss a game-winning field goal (at 47 yards) with 41 seconds left in the game. Chandler’s mistake handed Jimmy Garoppolo, 24, his first win as the Pats’ starting quarterback. The Cards will try to get their first win against the Bucs, as New England faces the Miami Dolphins.
