Sky Sports’ Neil Reynolds has the final say in the NFL’s second week, picking five top picks, player of the week and more; Join Neil and guests for a look back at the weekend’s best on the two-hour NFL Review – every Tuesday from 9:00 pm, Sky Sports NFL.
Week two was once again one of the most amazing NFL weekends we’ve ever seen. I know this may sound like a broken record, but it really had everything, including a huge number of comebacks…
I still don’t think he’ll ever throw like Patrick Mahomes or Justin Herbert, but he showed what he can do Sunday, passing for 469 yards and six touchdowns. Incredible!
It is clear how the Dolphins are going to attack the teams. Tyreke Hill and Jaylen Waddle hit 32 times and finished with 22 catches and four touchdowns in between.
It was Miami’s incredible comeback, trailing the Baltimore Ravens by 21 at one stage in the fourth quarter of their 42-38 victory. And the nature of the win was important for Tua – if he had those numbers in a 45-0 breakout, I’m not sure we’d be that excited.
There was no room for error, especially with his late-game clutch throws. His touchdown pass to the Waddle to win was really hard, through a narrow window.
I think this is a turning point for Tua, but now I want to see how he grows out of it…with a big game against the Buffalo Bills this week.
The Arizona Cardinals are a prime example that in the NFL, no lead is safe. Halfway through the third quarter of their game in Las Vegas, I thought they were headed for another loss and a very disappointing start to the season.
But Kyler Murray got the better of the game. It was almost like a video game at times – he had a two-point conversion game in which he ended up running 84 yards, taking 21 seconds, before finding the end zone. It’s something we’ve never seen in the NFL.
There was so much drama in this game. Even at the end, when Byron Murphy Jr. fumbled for 59 yards to win it for Arizona, he threw the ball in celebration and there were replays of reviews to see if he crossed the goal line before throwing it. That sums up the craziness of the NFL right now.
