If the first two weeks are anything to go by week 3 in the NFL will see some brilliant action.
We have seen big offensive plays with QBs putting up astonishing stats, despite this era of offence Seattle’s defence showed there was still room for hard-nosed defences in the NFL.
Meanwhile in San Francisco it will be great to see two of the youngest and most talented quarterbacks square off as the 49ers take on the Indianapolis Colts, Colin Kaepernick v Andrew Luck will be a matchup that we could be seeing for the next decade.
The Jags, who are coming to London in October, have not yet managed to hit double figure in points in a game yet and you can’t really see this changing against Seattle.
We will see if a number of 0-2 teams can start to turn around their season, New York Giants travel to Carolina with the plan to put two poor displays behind them. Eli Manning will look to stem the flow of interceptions, 7 in two games is not the kind of form he should be showing, but Panthers Cam Newton will be under pressure to find a first win after two narrow losses in his opening games.
Pittsburgh Steelers take the field on Sunday Night football knowing that a loss would essentially end any playoff hopes, teams that start the season 0-2 have a 12 per cent chance of playing in January.
Though there may be still hope as three 0-2 teams have gone on to win the Super Bowl; The 1993 Dallas Cowboys, 2001 New England Patriots and the 2007 New York Giants. So this week will be crucial for so many teams.
