Many expected 2021 first-round pick Travis Etienne to overtake undrafted 2020 rookie James Robinson to become the Jaguars’ top running back this season. It hasn’t happened in a game and a half. In the first week, Robinson outplayed Etienne and threw two touchdowns. Robinson’s success continued against the Colts as his 37-yard touchdown put Jacksonville up in double figures over his divisional opponent.
Robinson is returning from an Achilles injury at the end of last season.
Wilson caches first career TD
The Jets’ top pick in the draft contributed to a touchdown on their second trip to Cleveland. Second-round runner Breece Hall rumbled for 23 yards in the third and short, and three games later, 10th overall pick Garrett Wilson pulled his first career touchdown to tie the game.
Everyone loves fake punts, and the Jets did a great job on fourth and second in home territory. Braden Mann snapped, got up and threw the rope to Jeff Smith to get him 17 yards off with the drive.
Dan Campbell’s risk to go for it with the fourth goal was not crowned with success, but the consolation prize was that the commanders were thrown back almost into their end zone. That’s when Carson Wentz Carson Wentz’d, undressed by Charles Harris, and the ball bounces off the end zone, giving Detroit two points.
Swift cancels another big run
Two games, two 50-plus yard runs for the Lions’ D’Andre Swift. The third year missed practice for most of the week with an ankle injury, but he looked completely normal as he passed to the right, made a few quick passes to the left, and then outpaced the Commander defenders to seventh. – yard line. Unfortunately for Detroit, he ran out of points after failing to score the fourth goal.
Opening initial fumble!
While the Ravens had the best possible start, the Panthers had one of their worst, as Chuba Hubbard botched an initial kickoff that immediately sent the Giants into the red zone. Luckily for Carolina, the defense held tight to force a three-pointer and force a field goal.
TD Return Opening!
The Ravens got the toss against the Dolphins, but Lamar Jackson and the offense never even took the field. That’s because Devin DuVernay, who scored two receiving touchdowns in the season opener, took the kickoff from 103 yards and scored the goal. What a start for Baltimore!
Super Bowl contenders hope for first win
Of the four teams that became conference champions last season, only the Chiefs were victorious in the first week. The No. 1 seed of each conference also lost their first game.
All of these teams (Rams, Bengals, 49ers, Packers, Titans) will try to forget about their first results and start playing like clubs that entered the season with high expectations. And aside from the Titans, who are double-digit underdogs compared to the Bills on Monday Night Football, they have favorable matchups to get back on track. (Teams average over nine points in their second week.)
Win this week and their fans can take a deep breath after an unsettling start. But to lose as the favorite is more than a touchdown to drop to 0-2 and coaches and players will have a lot of questions about what went wrong.
