Indianapolis Colts 1-1-0
Versus
Houston Texans 0-2-0


Game Recap: HOUSTON-Indianapolis won't have their best cornerback Julius Brents. Houston will not have Laremy Tunsil at left tackle. Houston now has four of their five starters inactive on the offensive line while at least six of their ten offensive linemen are now inactive due to injuries.

Indianapolis got a turnover off of C.J. Stroud by forcing a fumble from Stroud. Anthony Richardson got a second rushing touchdown.

Houston made a field goal. Indianapolis led 31-13.


C.J. Stroud threw a touchdown pass to Houston Texans wide receiver Nathaniel "Tank" Dell, the same wide receiver that Stroud told the Houston Texans to draft. Indianapolis won 31-20.


The rookie quarterbacks drafted in the first round of the 2023 NFL Draft shined in this game. My player of the game would have been the rookie quarterback on the winning team regardless of who prevailed, but I'm giving the rookie quarterback on the losing team an honorable mention for playing his tail off in a loss.


Houston Texans quarterback C.J. Stroud went 30/47 with 347 passing yards, 1 rushing yard, 348 total yards, 2 passing touchdowns, and no interceptions. What was even more impressive is that the second overall pick in the 2023 NFL Draft did this without his left tackle Laremy Tunsil, without his left guard Kenyon Green, without his center Juice Scruggs, and without his right tackle Tytus Howard. Houston might be 0-2, but it looks like they got their franchise quarterback who looked nearly flawless on most plays if you exclude his 2 fumbles and 1 fumble lost when the Colts led 7-0.


Indianapolis Colts quarterback Anthony Richardson was my player of the game. Anthony Richardson went 6/10 with 56 passing yards while also having 35 rushing yards, 91 total yards, and 2 rushing touchdowns before leaving the game with a concussion. I think Anthony Richardson would have gotten 300 total yards too with the Colts possibly scoring anywhere between 35 and 42 points had Richardson played the entire game.




Kansas City Chiefs 1-1-0
Versus
Jacksonville Jaguars 1-1-0


Game Recap: JACKSONVILLE-Both the Kansas City Chiefs and Jacksonville Jaguars have 22 quality starters on offense and defense thanks to both Travis Kelce and Chris Jones returning to the lineup after missing Kansas City's season opener where Detroit beat the Kansas City Chiefs. Patrick Mahomes gets his best offensive weapon as well as the Kansas City Chiefs best defensive player back on his twenty eighth birthday. Jacksonville was the only one of the four AFC Division Winners in 2022 to start 1-0 and has a chance to pull away early in the AFC with a victory over the Kansas City Chiefs today.


Trevor Lawrence connected with both Christian Kirk and Calvin Ridley getting both of them the ball on third down conversions.


Patrick Mahomes threw a completion to K'Darius Toney. Mahomes began this game 4/6.

Trevor Lawrence threw it to Calvin Ridley, but Ridley couldn't stay in bounds.


Brandon McManus made another field goal. Kansas City led 14-9.


Calvin Ridley caught it out of bounds. That will not count.


Kansas City Chiefs kicker Harrison Butker made a field goal. Kansas City won 17-9.


Kansas City Chiefs quarterback Patrick Mahomes was my player of the game. Patrick Mahomes did well on his twenty eighth birthday going 29/41 with 305 passing yards, 2 passing touchdowns, and 1 interception. Two of Mahomes wide receivers fumbled the ball allowing Jacksonville to scoop up turnovers while Mahomes did well enough to lead his team to a win despite not playing flawless. You could argue that Jacksonville lost this game rather than the Chiefs winning it due to not capitalizing in the red zone since Jacksonville had more red zone opportunities than Kansas City, but that's like arguing that the Chiefs lost in week 1 rather than Detroit winning.


The Kansas City Chiefs picked up right where they left off with Travis Kelce and Chris Jones back. Both Kansas City and Jacksonville host weaker opponents in week 3.




Chicago Bears 0-2-0
Versus
Tampa Bay Buccaneers 2-0-0


Game Recap: TAMPA BAY-Chicago doesn't have their two guards Teven Jenkins at left guard and Nate Davis at right guard. Placing Teven Jenkins on injured reserve kept Cody Whitehair a long-time starter at left guard from making the transition to center. Tampa Bay will not have their number one cornerback Carlton Davis. Jamel Dean and Zyon McCollum who played nickel cornerback in week 1 will be the two starting cornerbacks on the outside.

Alex Highsmith had 5 solo tackles, 2 assisted tackles, 7 total tackles, 1 sack, 1 interception, 1 forced fumble, and 1 defensive touchdown. Technically, Highsmith is responsible for 2 Pittsburgh Steelers defensive touchdowns.


Pittsburgh Steelers 3-4 left outside linebacker T.J. Watt had 2 solo tackles, 2 assisted tackles, 4 total tackles, 1 sack, 1 fumble recovery, and 1 defensive touchdown after recovering the forced fumble by Highsmith which was the game-winning touchdown. T.J. Watt also surpassed James Harrison as the All Time leader in sacks on the Pittsburgh Steelers which is why he got an honroable mention despite me picking Highsmith as the player of the game. T.J. Watt might be the only player outside of Patrick Mahomes from the 2017 NFL Draft that can punch his ticket into Canton right now at this point if he decided to retire today.
