The NFL has become the ultimate reality television show, highlighted by improbable comebacks in Week 2. NFL teams had lost 2,331 straight games when trailing by 13-plus points in the final two minutes (including playoffs), before the New York Jets managed to pull off their wild comeback against the Cleveland Browns.
The Arizona Cardinals had their biggest comeback win in 23 years, while the Miami Dolphins rallied from 21-point second half deficit to stun the Baltimore Ravens -- part of a wild Week 2 in a league that seems to get more unpredictable each game.
Each team is starting to paint a clearer picture of how they stack up after two games. Below we'll unravel our takeaways from each team after the Week 2 slate of games.
Kyler Murray deserved his contract: What Murray was able to do in Sunday's comeback win over the Raiders showcased why the Cardinals gave him $189.5 million guaranteed. Murray had 252 yards in the second half and overtime to bring the Cardinals back from a 20-0 deficit, totaling two touchdowns (one passing, one rushing) and running and throwing for a two-point conversion, both of which came in the fourth quarter.
The Cardinals would be 0-2 if it wasn't for Murray's heroics. Arizona has flaws, but Murray can mask them while wearing down a defense late in games. It's better to have Kyler Murray on your team than not.
Does Kyle Pitts exist?: Pitts has been nearly invisible through the first two games, which is the main topic of conversation for a Falcons team that has played hard. Marshon Lattimore was covering Pitts in Week 1, so it made sense Pitts didn't light up the stat sheet.
What about Week 2? Pitts had just two catches for 19 yards and was only targeted three times. That's unacceptable for one of the best pass catching tight ends in the league. Pitts has to be a bigger part of the offense if the Falcons want to win games. Four catches for 38 yards on just 10 targets isn't good enough.
The run offense needs to be better: Lamar Jackson is leading all Ravens rushers with 136 yards and averaging 9.1 yards per carry. That's not surprising. Jackson, however, is getting very little help from any of the running backs on the roster. Kenyan Drake is the leading rusher at running back, with 17 carries for only 39 yards (2.3 yards per carry) -- a huge reason why Baltimore was unable to close out the game in Sunday's loss to Miami.
Jackson can't carry the entire offense, and the running game will significantly improve once J.K. Dobbins and Gus Edwards return. In the meantime, the running backs that are healthy have to be better. Latavius Murray and Devonta Freeman did a significantly better job last year than what the Ravens have now.
Don't forget how good Stefon Diggs is: Diggs is one of the best receivers in football, but he isn't talked about enough when mentioning the top wideouts in the game. He banged down the door when entering that conversation Monday night, finishing with 12 catches for 148 yards and three touchdowns in a blowout victory over the Titans.
The Titans were down Kristian Fulton in the secondary, so Diggs took advantage in dominating the cornerback group from beginning to end. With no Gabe Davis, Diggs made the Titans defense die by 1,000 cuts before a 46-yard touchdown catch broke Tennessee's back.
Diggs is one of just five players in the Super Bowl era to have three games with 140 receiving yards and three touchdowns. He's an elite receiver and should be in the conversation for best in the league.
The offense is very uninspiring even with a better quarterback: The Panthers just can't get out of their own way offensively, highlighted in Sunday's loss to the Giants by two fumbles that set the tone for the paltry 275 yards of offense they put up. Baker Mayfield hasn't been able to be a difference-maker, completing 14 of 29 passes for 145 yards and a touchdown in a helter-skelter performance.
The Panthers went just 2 of 12 on third down with the most egregious failed conversion coming when Mayfield took a sack at the 46-yard line with 2:42 remaining in the fourth quarter of a three-point game. Even with Christian McCaffrey getting more involved, the Panthers looked lifeless on offense as they search for continuity.
Carolina is only getting beat 13.2% of the time on the offensive line, seventh-best in the NFL. It's on Matt Rhule and Ben McAdoo to inject life into this offense.
The offense does nothing to help Justin Fields: New season, new coaches, same story. Chicago has a new offensive play caller in Luke Getsy, yet Fields looks as lost as ever. He went just 7 of 11 for 70 yards with no touchdowns and an interception (40.8 rating) as Chicago had twice as many punts (four) as completions of at least 10 yards.
None of the Bears playmakers are making plays in this offense. The offensive line is constantly changing and Fields has to improvise too much. The unit is a mess and it's significantly hurting Fields' development.
