Best NFL games of Week 2: Packers, Falcons meet in NFC title rematch

FOXBORO, MA - SEPTEMBER 07: Tyreek Hill /
1 of 5

Week 2 of the NFL regular season continues to carry the momentum from Week 1 as we have some great matchups. Here are my top five games of the week.

We are just one week in to the NFL season, but the overreactions are already flying all over the place. Fans are so excited to have football back, that they throw around crazy predictions after seeing their team play just one game.

In these situations, you have to take things with a grain of salt. It’s a long season. Every team has at least 15 more games left to play and just about anything can happen. One week isn’t a determining factor on how a team’s season turns out. But with that being said, we’ve got Week 2 of NFL action ahead of us, and it doesn’t look to disappoint.

Here are the five best NFL games that you’ll come across.

5. Philadelphia Eagles at Kansas City Chiefs

The Chiefs, riding high off of an impressive performance against the Patriots, are suddenly thrusted into the top ranks of the AFC conversation. Their Week 2 matchup doesn’t get any easier as Carson Wentz and the Eagles come into town. These two teams don’t meet very often, with the last game coming in 2013 by the way of a 26-16 Chiefs win. Both teams looks completely different now, but there is still plenty to play for on Sunday.

Perhaps the top storyline to watch will be how the loss of Eric Berry impacts the Chiefs secondary. They still have Marcus Peters on the outside, but the defense lost their heart and soul. From a talent and emotional standpoint, it can be deflating.

With the home advantage of Arrowhead stadium, it’s hard not to take the Chiefs in this one. Alex Smith won’t throw for 368 yards and four touchdowns again, but Andy Reid’s squad is for real this year. Kareem Hunt is already setting his case for NFL rookie of the year and has another favorable matchup against the Eagles defense, while Tyreek Hill seems to have silenced any questions about his ability to be a No .1 receiver for this team.

The Eagles won’t make things easy, but the Chiefs have the upper hand in this one.
