What we learned (and didn't learn) in Week 2

Will Kareem Hunt be the best of the rookie running backs? Scouts agree he's an excellent runner, but there are still areas where he needs to prove himself.

Week 3 NFL Power Rankings: Let's be optimistic

The Falcons shook their 28-3 demons (for now). The Chiefs are living up to the Week 1 hype. Even the Jets have a reason to hope. Here's how our experts stack all 32 teams after two weeks.

Daniel Sorensen and Eric Murray, the two safeties who filled in for the injured Eric Berry, wound up leading the Chiefs in tackles in Sunday's win over the Eagles. Sorensen was particularly effective rushing the quarterback. He had three hits on Carson Wentz. Murray broke up a pair of passes and had a key tackle after a deflected pass that could have resulted in a Philadelphia touchdown. “I thought we missed him early,'' coach Andy Reid said of Berry. “It was a matter of the new guys settling down and playing. I thought (Ron) Parker did a nice job of, he's a quiet guy but (he told the other players to) relax, that we were going to be OK here. He kind of filled that role that Eric does with the defense. Then you end up seeing Murray and Sorensen being the leading tacklers on the defense . . . with the exception of the one holding call early Murray came back and had some big plays for us and Sorensen had some big plays. His ability to blitz in there and sacrifice, jumping over people, and doing all that was (important).''

Strong start goes a long way

The road to the playoffs already looks much easier for the Broncos, Chiefs, Falcons, Panthers, Raiders, Ravens and Steelers. Since the postseason field expanded to 12 in 1990, 63 percent of teams to start 2-0 have made the playoffs.

The Patriots are back on top. After yielding the No. 1 spot in FPI's rankings for one week to the Chiefs, New England's dominating win over the Saints slid them back ahead of Kansas City.

Alex Smith has been sacked seven times through the Chiefs' first two games. The Chiefs will need to slow that pace considerably if they're going to keep Smith around for a full season. The Chiefs had trouble blocking the Eagles' sturdy front for much of Sunday's game but they won't always face an opponent so difficult every week.

Rough day for Wentz against pressure

Carson Wentz thrived under duress in Week 1, but the script flipped entirely against the Chiefs on Sunday. Wentz went just 1-of-7 for minus-3 yards against pressure in K.C., while taking six sacks.

An ominous sign for Chiefs center Mitch Morse, who left the game early because of a foot injury. Morse was on crutches with his foot in a walking boot in the locker room afterward.
