The story of Week 2 in the NFL was undoubtedly the number of injuries to many high profile players. It starting to look like the lack of a traditional preseason is taking its toll. Saquon Barkley tore his ACL, Nick Bosa did the same and Christian McCaffrey left the game with an ankle injury,
Drew Lock is out with a shoulder injury and his best weapon Courtland Sutton is done for the season with a knee injury. Jimmy Garoppolo has a high ankle sprain of his own. Honestly, that is to just name a few who went down in the second week. Here’s a list of all of the injuries.
We’re hoping that they all heal as fast as possible and that the injuries are significantly curtailed this week. How will the season be effected starting in Week 3?

You can tune into NFL matchups this season via the following channels:

- RedZone from NFL Network
Waiting later in the day on Sunday and waiting even further into Monday will be well worth the patience because the league’s premiere matchups will all be happening at night. Let’s start with Green Bay Packers at New Orleans Saints. The only person that can be remotely mentioned in the MVP race after Russell Wilson right now is Aaron Rodgers. Aaron Jones has proven to be an elite runner and this has opened up the passing game for Rodgers.
These Aaron’s have it on lock but Davante Adams is on that massive list of injuries with a hamstring issue of his own. He has been quiet to start the season but the Packers have won handedly without their best receiver. Will that be enough to beat the Saints? New Orleans struggled mightily in the second half against the Raiders in the first ever game in Las Vegas without their own number one receiver Michael Thomas. We don’t know if this can match Week 2’s Sunday Night Football matchup, when the Seattle Seahawks stopped Cam Newton and the New England Patriots from scoring on the last play, but it should be every bit as back and forth.

The best game of the week though was saved for last. The last two league MVP’s will square off in Baltimore in what many believe to be a preview of this year’s AFC Championship. It would have been last year’s matchup if the Titans didn’t go on an unbelievable spoiler run beating the Patriots and Ravens and almost beating the Chiefs. This matchup seems very even going in with two elite offenses but the Ravens defense will always take the edge no matter how much the Chiefs have improved on that side of the ball.
The Chiefs surprisingly eked one out against the LA Chargers in Justin Herbert’s first ever start. The story of that game was how well the Oregon First Round pick played and not Patrick Mahomes and the Chiefs comeback win in overtime. The Ravens soundly beat the Houston Texans and look like the more complete team headed into this Monday Night showdown. To be fair the Chiefs handedly beat the Texans as well. Either way, we are hoping this is a tight high scoring affair like the Chiefs and Rams classic from two years ago. Should be another epic week in the NFL.
