Rivalries are at the forefront of Week 2 in the NFL, with half of Sunday’s 14 games featuring divisional battles. Keep up with the best (and sometimes worst) moments right here with us.
Yiiiiikes, this hit on Cam Newton
Falcons safety Damontae Kazee, filling in for Keanu Neal who is out for the rest of the season, was ejected for this hit on Cam Newton — as he should’ve been.
Newton returned to the game and promptly led the Panthers on a touchdown drive.
Trick play Sunday!
Well, this is one way to overcome “Blaine Gabbert starting quarterback.” The Titans embarrassed the Texans with this fake punt:
Good call from the Titans. Terrible special teams effort from the Texans.
And this is one way to overcome a limited Aaron Rodgers:
Patrick Mahomes can throw it real pretty, huh?
Mahomes is so much fun to watch. Just look how nice this touchdown throw is (unless you’re the Steelers):
The next drive, he did it again, this time with a 19-yard touchdown to Travis Kelce:
And then again on the next drive.
So for those keeping score at home, Mahomes finished the first quarter going 6 of 7 for 106 yards and three touchdowns — with a perfect passer rating.
Fitzmagic is back again!
And another one!
DeSean Jackson has caught 5 TD from Ryan Fitzpatrick since joining the Buccaneers.
He has 1 TD from Jameis Winston.

Here is the schedule for Sunday. Be sure to check back often as this will be updated throughout the day.
Week 2 Sunday schedule
Carolina Panthers at Atlanta Falcons, 1 p.m. (FOX)
Indianapolis Colts at Washington, 1 p.m. (CBS)
Houston Texans at Tennessee Titans, 1 p.m. (CBS)
Minnesota Vikings at Green Bay Packers, 1 p.m. (FOX)
Cleveland Browns at New Orleans Saints, 1 p.m. (FOX)

New York Giants at Dallas Cowboys, 8:20 p.m. (NBC)
Aaron Rodgers, who led a stunning Green Bay Packers comeback last week on a gimpy left knee, will get a stiff test on Sunday against the Minnesota Vikings in an NFC North tilt. In other divisional battles, the Houston Texans visit the Tennessee Titans with both teams coming off a loss, with the same scenario in the ‘Sunday Night Football’ matchup between the New York Giants and Dallas Cowboys.
In non-divisional matchups, the New Orleans Saints host the undefeated (and winless!) Cleveland Browns and the game of the day is probably the AFC Championship Game rematch between the Jacksonville Jaguars and New England Patriots, this time in Jacksonville.
