How about that for an opening weekend in the NFL? The first week of the season started out with a clunker, with the Buffalo Bills demolishing the Los Angeles Rams 31-10 in the first game of the 2022 campaign. After that, things got really interesting.

A total of nine games were decided by a touchdown or less in Week 1 across the NFL. Six of those games were decided by a field goal or less and two contests went to overtime. The Indianapolis Colts and Houston Texans started the year with an unexciting tie.

The theme from Week 1? NFL kickers. A total of 15 kicks (field goals and extra points) were missed in the opening weekend of the season. It certainly made for an entertaining start to the year.

Now that we’re off and running in the NFL, here’s a look at every matchup in Week 2 across the league (all times CT):

Thursday, Sept. 15 — Thursday Night Football

AFC rivals start off Week 2 of the NFL slate with a Thursday Night Football showdown. Kansas City crushed Arizona 44-21 in the opener while Los Angeles squeaked past Las Vegas. Who stays undefeated heading into Week 3?

Eyes will be on Tampa Bay vs. New Orleans and Miami vs. Baltimore during the noon slot of the Sunday games. After winning a road game in Atlanta, the Saints will be tested by Tom Brady and the Buccaneers.

It’s only Week 2, but there’s going to be a lot of pressure on a 3:25 PM matchup between the Cincinnati Bengals and Dallas Cowboys.
