Titans 16, Steelers 9
Titans: A good start and good win for a team that may be floating around the wild card cut line.
Steelers: The sound heard at Heinz field may have been the sound of a window closing and a seat heating up.

Seahawks 12, Panthers 7
Seahawks: A win is a win.
Panthers: At some point and time, Cam Newton is going to be judged the way other QBs are judged… wins – at which point the national media will pretend to be shocked at his 39% career winning percentage.

Chiefs 28, Jaguars 2
Chiefs: A much better team that essentially received a week 1 bye.
Jaguars: Tim Tebow has to give this team a better opportunity to win than Sunshine and Henne.

Rams 27, Cardinals 24
Rams: A solid team that lacks something needed to be a playoff team.
Cardinals: Greatly improved from 2012, but lacking a killer instinct.

49ers 34, Packers 28
49ers: Kaepernick may just be the real deal.
Packers: Incredible offense with an unreliable defense.

Cowboys 36, Giants 31
Cowboys: Needed 7 turnovers to barely beat a mediocre Giants team at home.
Giants: Most difficult team in the NFL to get a grasp on.

Eagles 33, Redskins 27
Eagles: Chip Kelly’s offense is very exciting, but Vick’s fragile body and inaccurate arm will let the air out of this bubble soon enough.
Redskins: Extremely overrated team with a suspect defense and lacking options on offense.

Texans 31, Chargers 28
Chargers: Rivers has the worst 4th quarter QBR (7.7) and a league high 13 4th quarter turnovers since the start of 2012…not good.
Texans: Good, but vulnerable.

And now, here’s the NFL Week 2 TV schedule:
