Week 2 was a different story.

Hit the juke stick!

Jalen Ramsey gets the key interception

The Rams’ star corner made a leaping grab at the goal line as the Falcons looked to take the lead. Los Angeles took a safety to help kill the clock, but the Falcons weren’t able to get a Hail Mary pass off.

Buccaneers take control

Can Prescott come back early?

The Dallas Cowboys lost to Tampa Bay in Week 1 and also lost quarterback Dak Prescott to a thumb injury. FOX Sports NFL reporter Jay Glazer reported on Sunday that Prescott’s injury isn’t as bad as originally thought, so much so that the Cowboys have refrained from making a trade.

“The fracture was [at the] bottom of the thumb, so they put a plate in there,” Glazer explained. “That wound from that surgery takes about 7-10 days to heal. The problem after that is, how quickly does his grip come back? And when his grip comes back, how long does it take him to grip it and throw the tight spiral that he wants. That’s the question we don’t know. You’re hearing reports 4-6 weeks, 6-8 weeks, you don’t know.”

FOX Sports NFL analyst and former Saints head coach Sean Payton explained how Brady’s arrival in Tampa Bay changed the NFC South on FOX NFL Kickoff.

“Look, back when Tampa signed Tom Brady that gets your attention in the division because quite honestly they hadn’t been a threat,” Payton said. “I’ve never seen anything take place that quickly during the course of one year, one signing that meant so much to a team. That shifted a lot of things because he brought credibility to an organization that really had lacked it, he brought leadership, but also someone that was able to help acquire some other players.”

Meanwhile, the reigning champion Los Angeles Rams are looking to bounce back from a 31-10 Week 1 loss to the Buffalo Bills. FOX Sports NFL analyst Charles Woodson called Rams cornerback Jalen Ramsey‘s effort from Week 1 into question on FOX NFL Kickoff.

“When you watch that tape, and you watch him watch a guy run by him down the field, that’s not what top corners do in the game,” Woodson said. “Myself, Revis, Prime, you would never see us on the film watch a guy run past you. That is an effort thing.”
