Fourteen quarterbacks threw for at least 300 yards, the most in a single week in NFL history.
There were eight combined kick-return touchdowns (five punt, three kickoff), the most combined kick-return touchdowns in a single week in NFL history.
Carolina’s Cam Newton had a 422 yard passing day in his NFL rookie debut and he did that on the road. It’s the most ever by a player in his NFL debut.
The Packers and Saints, in the NFL opener, each surpassed 300 yards in the same game.
And Tom Brady passed for 517 yards on Monday night while his Miami counterpart, Chad Henne threw for 416 yards.
Some big games in week 2 today, including the Bears (1-0) and Saints (0-1) in New Orleans. The Bears won their opener, impressively at home 30-12 over Atlanta. Jay Cutler passed for 312 yards in the win and Matt Forte added 158 yards from scrimmage, 90 receiving and 68 rushing.
There’s a big game in Atlanta today where Michael Vick and the Eagles (1-0) take on the Falcons (0-1). The Eagles opened week 1 with a 31-13 win over the Rams. The Falcons struggled in their loss to the Bears, but QB Matt Ryan is
20-2 in home starts in his career.
San Diego (1-0) is on the road at New England (1-0) in a 3:15 CT kickoff. Tom Brady and Phillip Rivers should provide plenty of entertainment in this one.
The Packers (1-0) are in Carolina (0-1) today. Dom Capers will no doubt have a solid defensive package ready for Cam Newton in week 2.
Just a few of the solid matchups and what looks like a lot more yards and points for NFL offenses.
