Bump and Run
Team of the week
They hung with the current Super Bowl Champion Patriots in week one, but ultimately fell short, however, in week 2 the Pittsburgh Steelers absolutely dominated the 49ers on both sides of the ball. Scoring 6 total TDs; 3 passing and 3 rushing, and 2 from 2 on 2PATs. Just highly clinical display from the Steelers in their 43-18 victory, especially impressive as only had a time of possession of just over 23 minutes!

Offensive Player of the week
There was a few players who had a fantastic week two on the offensive side of the ball. Such as Larry Fitzgerald recording 3 TDs for the first time in his career, and DeAngelo Williams tied a Steelers' record rushing for 3 TDs too. However, when your often maligned QB is making only his 3rd career start you need your skill players to step up. That's exactly what Travis Benjamin did for Manziel. Hauling in a 60 yard TD to open the scoring and settle his QB down, a 50 yard TD to ice the game. Oh, and when the offence was stalling just before half time, returning a punt 78 yards for a TD to extend the lead going in to half time.

Defensive Player of the week
Three excellent defensive performances all worth of note from week two. Firstly, Jacquies Smith of Tampa Bay recorded 3 sacks, two forced fumbles and 1 tackle for loss against the Saints. Next, Jamie Collins of New England was a force in the Patriots' dismantling of the Bills. Playing every snap on defence, Collins recorded 11 tackles, 2.5 sacks, and forced a fumble. However, the award goes to the man who turned in the best performance of the weekend on Monday Night Football with Darrelle Revis. He wasn't as dominate in stats as much as the others, but, beyond the standard shutting down of opponents' best receiver, he also had a keen nose for the football at important times in week 2. Recording two fumble recoveries and an interception, all at key points during the Jets' road win.

Offensive Rookie of the week
Some good performances this week for rookies, but, after rushing for 123 yards and 2 TDs en route to a surprising 24-10 win, and even though not getting the start, Matt Jones gets the nod for his performance over the St Louis Rams. Which opens up a lot of options for the Washington Redskins moving forward with a 1-2 punch with Jones and Morris. With honourable mentions going to David Johnson and Amari Cooper.

Defensive Rookie of the week
Another standout performance from Marcus Peters who recorded a 55 yard pick-six of Peyton Manning. In addition to the pick-six, Peters also broke up four passes and recorded five total tackles in a dominant display on TNF for the Chiefs.

Coach of the week
After a solid first week outing in shutting down the Cleveland Browns, rookie head coach Todd Bowles had a potentially tougher assignment in week 2 to slow down Andrew Luck and his Colts on Monday Night Football, in Indianapolis. Despite the opposition starting the season slowly, credit should still go to the defensive guru who had the perfect plan to stifle the Colts on Monday night, including shutting them out for 3 quarters and 5 turnovers.

The WTF moment of the week
A big divisional game on prime time, and the Chiefs went up 24-17 before Manning lead a drive to tie the game at 24 with time running out and OT looming. However, Jamaal Charles had other ideas, and coughed up the ball which Bradley Roby gladly took for the game winning TD. People watching around the globe all had the same reaction. WTF just happened?

Play of the week
There were a few impressive plays this week, but, nothing too acrobatic or flash compared to what the NFL usually dishes up. However, hats off to Bengals' rookie offensive tackle Jake Fisher with his 31 yard catch and run. Impressive skills and turn of pace for the big man!

Comeback kings
Going in to the 4th quarter being down by 10 points, and on the road; and in to the 2 minute drill down by 3, the Atlanta Falcons deserve the accolades for coming back against the Giants and completing the job for the win. Also giving honourable mentions to rookie Jameis Winston who came back nicely from a disastrous week one outing with a solid performance in the victory over the Saints, and from the Denver Broncos who, in conjunction with the above mentioned WTF play, came back to get the win versus Kansas City.

I don't believe what just happened
Week 1, you lose your star wideout is one thing, but week 2 you lose your QB until week 11 at the earliest. So, with Tony Romo's injury, Jerry Jones has some obvious bad karma on his side this season, or the rest of the NFC East has some voodoo going on. Either way, I don't believe what just happened...

The moral victory
No teams really deserved a moral victory, as most teams were either surprise winners or heavy losers. No team came to the 'close but no cigar' category of a moral victory. However, the award goes to a player who actually won on the weekend, in fact his first career victory as a QB. So, Johnny Manziel gets the award for leading his Cleveland Browns for his first victory, on a week he only got given the start a few days before Sunday, and will likely be pressed back to back-up role when McCown returns from concussion.

Bad decision of the week
You just went down by 7 on the road in Sunday Night Football with 10 minutes to play, you start moving the ball well with your rushing attack, however, on 1st and 10 inside your own half, a screen is called. The play breaks down, and instead of throwing it away or in to the dirt, Russell Wilson continues the play as if it wasn't busted and goes straight in to the grateful arms of the defence. After the ensuing drive took the clock down to the two minute warning and a successful field goal, the Seahawks then found themselves down by 10 when if Wilson didn't force the screen pass who knows how it would've finished?

The BIG letdown
Many teams had the Eagles as their preseason Super Bowl picks, but, two weeks in and things are not going to plan. Chip Kelly has invested a lot of time, effort and draft picks with total control to shape the team exactly how he needs to succeed from his Oregon days, however, the Eagles have been a big letdown for him and with stats such as 21 net yards in first half and his RBs rushing for a combined 7 yards on 17 carries, he needs to fix something soon otherwise he'll be out of a job!

Jake Delhomme Award
Something isn't quite right in Indianapolis at the moment, as was outlined above, and especially with Andrew Luck who is looking more like Lack than Luck at the moment. This rang true in week 2 when he completed a paltry 56.6% with 3 interceptions and a lost fumble, for a rating of 52.8, and only mustering one scoring drive in the 4th quarter.

Just as it says on the box
A few of the so-called 'poor teams' advertised on the box actually won last week, so kudos to the Jaguars, Browns, and Raiders. However, one team who lost, and despite putting up a good fight were the Houston Texans who aren't a bad team, however, they're not a great team. What it says on the box is they're a QB away from a competent and good team, as proved in week two when Ryan Mallett's 27/58 isn't going to cut it and ask 'What If?' they had drafted Teddy Bridgewater a year ago.

Surprise of the week
We touched upon the injury to Tony Romo above, but, what was a surprise was just how well Brandon Weedon did in relief completing all his 7 of his passes for 73 yards and a TD without Dez Bryant in the line up too. So the Cowboys have to feel confident going forward without Romo for an extended period of time if the cameo is anything to go by.
Next year is our year, I can feel it...

I am the danger. I am the one who knocks
Jamie Collins was spectacular this week, and given that FRs are luck and not skill I feel he should have won the award. Other than that. Good job.
