Prepare for a thrilling ride filled with historic moments and jaw-dropping performances as we gear up for the second week of the 2023 NFL season. Here’s a sneak peek at what you can expect:
- Miami Dolphins: Aiming for Offensive Brilliance – The Miami Dolphins are off to an explosive start, racking up 536 yards of offense in their Week 1 victory. Now, they have their sights set on facing the New England Patriots on Sunday Night Football. If they record 500+ yards of offense once again, they’ll join an elite group of teams in NFL history. Quarterback Tua Tagovailoa is on fire, with 466 passing yards in the season opener. With just 356 more passing yards, he’ll join the top five quarterbacks with the most passing yards in their team’s first two games of a season.
- Tyreek Hill: Speed Demon – Wide receiver Tyreek Hill was Tagovailoa’s go-to guy last week, amassing 215 receiving yards and two touchdowns. If he adds 115 more receiving yards against the Patriots, he’ll crack the top five for most receiving yards in a player’s first two games of a season.
- Justin Jefferson and Tyreek Hill: A Rare Feat – Justin Jefferson and Tyreek Hill aim to make history by becoming only the fifth pair of players since 1970 to record 150+ receiving yards in each of the season’s first two weeks.
- Seahawks vs. Lions: Scoring Showdown – When the Seattle Seahawks and Detroit Lions collide, you can expect fireworks. These teams have combined for 80+ points in their last two meetings. Will they make it a historic three in a row?
- Jared Goff’s Interception-Free Streak – Jared Goff is on a remarkable streak with 359 consecutive pass attempts without an interception, ranking third all-time in NFL history. Can he continue this trend against Seattle?
- Richardson vs. Stroud: A Battle of Youth – When Anthony Richardson and C.J. Stroud take the field, it’ll be only the second time in NFL history two starting quarterbacks under 22 face off. Stroud had an impressive debut, and Richardson isn’t far behind. Could this be the start of a new era?
- Sam Howell’s Historic Opportunity – Sam Howell is looking to etch his name in the record books by becoming the first player ever to record a passing and rushing touchdown in each of his first three career games. Can he achieve this against Denver?
- Rookie Receivers Shine – Puka Nacua and Zay Flowers, both rookies, are turning heads with their early performances. Nacua is already among the few players with 10+ receptions in his NFL debut, while Flowers isn’t far behind. Could they set new records for receptions in their first two career games?
- Brock Purdy: A Rising Star – Since taking over as the starter, San Francisco’s quarterback Brock Purdy has been a revelation. If he throws two touchdown passes against the Rams, he’ll join an exclusive club of quarterbacks with at least two touchdowns in each of their first seven career starts.
- Fields and Wilson: Rushing Prowess – Justin Fields and Russell Wilson are known for their dual-threat abilities. Fields can become fifth in games with 50+ rushing yards among quarterbacks in their first three seasons, while Wilson is closing in on 5,000 career rushing yards, joining an elite club.
- Austin Ekeler: The Undrafted Star – Austin Ekeler impresses as an undrafted running back, inching closer to 7,500 career scrimmage yards. If he achieves this milestone, he’ll join a select group of undrafted running backs in NFL history.
- Jordan Whitehead: Ball Hawk Extraordinaire – Jordan Whitehead is chasing history with his knack for interceptions. If he grabs one against Dallas, he’ll become only the fourth player since 1980 to record four interceptions in the season’s first two weeks.
Week 2 promises to be an exhilarating chapter in the 2023 NFL season, with records waiting to be broken and young talents making their mark. Don’t miss the action!
