The second week of the NFL is here and lots of interesting things happened there were injuries, upsets, and some amazing performances from some players we didn’t expect.
Starting off with the injuries, one that is heartbreaking is Saquon Barkley. He tore his ACL and is going to be out for the rest of the season.
Some other big names lost to injury were Panthers running back Christian McCaffrey with an ankle injury, Packers wideout Devante Adams with a hamstring injury, and 49ers running back Raheem Mostert, who started off well and hurt his knee. There are many other smaller injuries that will keep players out for a few games.
There were some stand out quarterback performances, and a few that are unforgettable came from Cowboys quarterback Dak Prescott with 450 yards and one touchdown, Seahawks quarterback Russel Wilson with 288 yards and five touchdown but one interception, Patriots quarterback Cam Newton with 397 yards four touchdowns but one interception, Bills quarterback Josh Allen with 417 yards and four touchdowns, and Cardinals quarterback Kyler Murray with 286 yards four touchdowns but one interception.
Moving onto other positions, Raiders tight end Darren Waller had 12 receptions 103 yards and a touchdown, Packers running back Aaron Jones had 168 yards and four touchdowns, Bills wideout Stefon Diggs had eight receptions for a total of 153 yards and a touchdown, and Falcons wideout Calvin Ridley had seven receptions for 109 yards and two touchdowns.
