By Marc Lawrence, PlaybookSports.com — The dust has settled on Week Two of the 2023 NFL season, and New England is 0-2 for the first time since 2001. FYI: That season they went on to go 14-3 thereafter, riding a season-ending 9-0 win skein to capture the Super Bowl.
We also learned that Miami is not all offense. The Dolphins’ defense bounced back after surrendering 34 points to the Chargers in Week One, holding the Patriots to 288 yards.
Sunday’s win by the 49ers over the Rams meant that Frisco’s running game is the best in the league, as they’ve churned out 159 and 188 rushing yards in the first two games.
Denver had a 21-3 lead against a quarterback making his third career start, only to go on to lose, 35-33 to Washington. They enter Miami this week coming off a pair of SU favorite losses under new head coach Sean Payton.
Cincinnati’s rush defense has been gashed for 384 yards, while Joe Burrow’s poor start is also a major concern for the 0-2 Bengals.
