Well, that was a bit of a mess wasn’t it? I don’t think anybody could have predicted Week 1 of the NFL in one of the wildest weeks around the league in recent memory.
It really felt like the majority of teams weren’t ready to play, so we didn’t get a great feel for them. So now we have the second week of the season being a bit of an informed reset. It’s safe to say the Chiefs will be much better, as will the Bills and Bengals — but what do we make of that weird middle tier? Are the Steelers really that bad? Is this a true dumpster fire for the Giants in the AFC East? Is the Vikings defense really so bad they can even let the Buccaneers steal a win?
