There are three franchises in the NFL that right now, in a Week 2 that has far, very far away, SuperBowlthey seem to be a step above the others and dream more than others of being in Las Vegas next February. Dallas Cowboys, San Francisco 49ers y Philadelphia Eagles They have been the most complete teams in their first two games. We must also count on the Miami Dolphinsraising your cache every week, and with a few Baltimore Ravens who despite injuries have started with two wins. Everyone is 2-0. The Kansas City Chiefscurrent champions, debuted their record of victories against the Jaguarsjust like the Bills, who continue to assume the status of favorites. Both calm a little the alarms that were beginning to ring around them. We analyze it all in the third episode of The Radio Marca Touchdown and let’s go with the notes of the week.
2-0, 70 points scored and 10 received after two games. Little else can be added to the start of the season for the Cowboys, the best defense in the NFL at the moment. They have devastated the two New York teams, the Giants and the Jets, 40-0 and 30-10, and although their schedule in the first weeks is arguably not the most difficult in the league, they have proven to be extremely solid in attack and in defence. Micah Parsons is the number 1 candidate for Defensive Player of the Year and Dak Prescott is finally beginning to trust 100% in CeeDee Lamb, who has accumulated 220 receiving yards in two dates. Everything works.
Beating the Texans might not seem like a big deal, but beating the Bengals in Cincinnati they are big words. Lamar Jacksonhealthy, is a candidate for best player of the season and makes us forget a little about the injury of Dobbins, the best running back on the team. The quarterback is being lethal in the pass and in the running game. Indefensible right now. On his horizon, the rookie Zay Flowers He has fallen on his feet in the team and the return of tight end Mark Andrews gives even more pieces to his attack. They are, along with the Dolphins who continue to fuel in an extraordinary way, the best teams in the AFC.
Having Mike Evans and Chris Goodwin open on every drive helps, but the start of the much-maligned Baker Mayfield on the Tampa Bay Buccaneers has been more than surprising. The former number one in the 2018 draft has arrived in Florida to take over from Tom Brady. Big words and a lot of pressure for a player who has always been in the spotlight. At the moment, the team has 2 wins and no losses and Mayfield has not added any interceptions.
something happens in Chicago, and it’s not good at all. The team, which transferred the number 1 of the last draft in exchange for the receiver DJ Moore and future rounds, is 0-2 and with the feeling that his quarterback, Justin Fields, is with his head elsewhere. In the first loss against the Packers he left doubts, but in the second against the Buccaneers his performance was even worse. Absurd losses, no mobility and a worrying reluctance in much of his actions. The future of the franchise does not depend on him and the Bears should start considering some things.
