TOP TWO TEAMS
1. Buccaneers (1-0)
Will Tom Brady ever play old? Not anytime soon based on that silky game-winning drive to outgun Dak Prescott and the Cowboys.
2. Rams (1-0)
A dominating start in their quest to win the Super Bowl at their home stadium.
BOTTOM TWO TEAMS
31. Giants (0-1)
Daniel Jones now has 30 fumbles and 40 turnovers in 28 games.
32. Jaguars (0-1)
Will Urban Meyer be able to finish a season that starts with a loss to Houston?
WHERE ARE THE VIKINGS?
Somewhere south of Cincinnati, which isn't good. Until we see a game that isn't a flag fest, let's rank 'em 26th.
Steelers 23, Bills 16. So much for the demise of the Steelers, who were a touchdown underdog at Buffalo.
Packers 3, Saints 38. Green Bay did not convert a third down with Aaron Rodgers on the field. What … the … heck!?
PLAYER OF THE WEEK
Matthew Stafford. His grand L.A. debut couldn't have gone any better. On throws of at least 10 yards, he went 7 for 9 for 212 yards, with three touchdowns and a perfect 158.3 passer rating.
Arthur Smith. In a 33-6 home loss to the Eagles, Smith's Falcons netted 77 yards in their final 10 possessions.
STAT OF THE WEEK
49ers backup quarterback and native Minnesotan Trey Lance became the first player to throw a touchdown pass on his first NFL attempt since Tim Tebow in 2010.
