NFL Week 2 recap: E. J. Manuel, Aaron Rodgers, Peyton Manning, Matt Ryan and Julio Jones are stellar

(Rick Stewart/Getty Images)

Buffalo Bills rookie QB was emotional after last second win vs Cam and the Panthers.

Exciting weekend. A lot of points were put up in Week 2. Robert Griffin III will be fine despite all the uncertainty swirling. Seattle looks mighty. Richard Sherman is a monster. Big Red looks crazy in all that…red.  Greg Schiano is wrecking Josh Freeman. Josh has every tool to be great, so get off his back coach and…coach. Don’t make him the scapegoat for your failings. If Philly’s below average defense makes just a few stops a game, Vick, McCoy and Jackson will dominate the league if able to stay healthy. Chip Kelly must run the ball for that to happen, because if the offense doesn’t score on most possessions, Philly is an 8-8 team. Aaron Rodgers was absolutely incredible. What an offense he has in Green Bay. The NFC East was 0-4 Sunday, but don’t put too much stock in that. Peyton Manning is a gridiron magician. If Denver doesn’t go to the Super Bowl, I’ll be shocked. The pass interference penalty needs a little tinkering because defensive backs are definitely at a disadvantage. Hate to see late game calls decide games. Who do you have tonight?

Bills 24, Panthers 23: E. J. Manuel touchdown pass to Stevie Johnson with 2 seconds left is game winner. Mario Williams has franchise record 4.5 sacks.
