Pittsburgh Steelers shift in Week 2 NFL Power Rankings

Yes, the Colts were without Andrew Luck but they were still facing a Los Angeles Rams team with a so-so defense. The Rams will need to figure out how to feed Gurley successfully, but when they do, that offense could become lethal. Eight teams tallied fewer than 250 yards of total offense in Week 1.

The NFL season began with a bang on Thursday when the defending champion New England Patriots were stunned at home by the Kansas City Chiefs. Bogan is the ideal compliment to powerful teammate Jarvion Franklin and both are on the Doak Walker watch list in the running for the best tailback in college football. Both teams are forces and will be contenders throughout the season, but I believe the official robbed us all of a terrific week 1 matchup.

On top of taking 7 points off of the board early, the referees chose to eject cornerback Jeremy Lane from the game for throwing a punch during the exact same play. The defense finished with three total takeaways, two touchdowns, and only gave up a total of nine points in the game.

Bettors will be asking themselves if the low scoring will continue into Week 2. "I have already bet Unders on several of their matchups this week [Week 2] and may still bet more". Here's hoping they get back to normal in Week 2.

Quarterback Andy Dalton turned the ball over five times in what, very well, could have been his worst career outing as a pro player. The Bengals put up a goose egg on the scoreboard marking the first time they've been shut out since Week 7 in 2014.

"Unbelievable! That's fantastic!" said South football coach Matt Duffy in a text message upon hearing the news Hunt was on the cover of this SI. The Baltimore Ravens offense was nothing special, out-gunning the Bengals only 268 to 221 in total offensive yardage. Some of the best fantasy players coming into the season did not live up to the hype in week one. Texans coach Bill O'Brien benched his starting quarterback after the first two quarters of the season.

We don't know yet if the Texans will stick with rookie DeShaun Watson under center or if they'll go back to Tom Savage on Thursday against Cincinnati. Houston's offensive line offered absolutely no help for their quarterback while he was on the field. Left tackle Duane Brown, a three-time Pro Bowler, is still holding out for a new contract.

Five of the Jags' 10 sacks on Sunday came when they rushed just four defenders. Without Luck, there's a good argument to be made that Indy is the least talented team in the league.

While the Colts did roll into L.A. with back-up quarterback Scott Tolzien, their defense was still rocked to the tune of 373 total yards by the Rams. The problem was that Lane didn't throw any sort of punch. He scored three TDs in the game.

The contest is a rematch of last season's NFC Championship Game which the Falcons won 44-21.

The line on this game has yet to be released as oddsmakers wait to hear on the availability of Beckham Jr. They essentially took away a starting defender in the opening quarter for absolutely nothing. Even better, the D scored 16.
