Its only one week

1 of 2

Relax, take a deep breath, step off the ledge (looking at you, Steelers fans), do not plan the ticker tape parade yet (Patriots and Ravens fans), no need to carve Hall of Fame busts yet (Panthers fans), and don’t call for a quarterback change (seriously, Broncos fans, and you too, Vikings fans). That was quite an opening week of football; it had everything you could ask for as a fan: close games decided on the last play, ridiculous offensive numbers, and surprising upsets. That said, it is week one of 17. Fans seem to take that first week as the end all be all indication of how their team will fare. There is a lot of football left to be played, no need to panic and overreact to the opening weekend. Having said that, let’s look at some of the interesting games and story lines for week two.
