Week two taught us a lot, mainly that it was important not to read too much into week one.
Teams which suffered surprise losses in the first week, the Green Bay Packers and the New York Giants, bounced back with victories over the Bears and the Bucs, teams who themselves won their openers.
Robert Griffin III (RG3) may have put in another creditable rookie quarterback performance last night, but he saw his Redskins fail to build on their opening win over the Saints, losing to the St Louis Rams, meaning both Redskins and Rams sit on 1-1 records.
Intriguingly while RG3 suffered his first defeat, the only man drafted above him Andrew Luck, led the Colts to their first victory of the season over the Vikings, ensuring both teams sit on 1-1.
The Carolina Panthers lost their opener and bounced back against the Saints last night, to also go 1-1, while the Saints sit on 0-2, and have to ask themselves big questions, particularly about their defence and offensive line.
What of the Ravens, who were scintillating in their destruction of the Bengals on Monday night? They slipped to a narrow loss to the Eagles, with Joe Flacco failing to impress in the third and fourth, suggesting he is still short of elite status. The Bengals themselves also went 1-1.
The Eagles are 2-0, but have won both of their games by just a single point, and while wins are what matters, especially in such a competitive division, they are yet to totally convince.
Seattle defeated Tony Romo's Cowboys, putting both sides on 1-1, while the surprise result of the weekend saw the Cardinals go 2-0, upsetting the Patriots (1-1).
It was back to reality for the Jets, losing to the Steelers, both now 1-1, while the team they wiped out the Bills also went 1-1.
The Dolphins beat the Raiders to go 1-1, putting Oakland on 0-2 alongside Jacksonville and the Titans. The Texans and Chargers also went 2-0, with Houston looking particularly strong.
It is early days, and the picture the season will take still remains unclear, but New Orleans will be particularly keen to put their off-season troubles behind him and get a win. This year's NFL season is just getting started, and the signs already show it is going to be as competitive and thrilling as ever.
